Hello, I'm Sandra Oulmas and this is non-surgical procedures for jowls. Jowls or sagging skin where the cheeks meet the jaw line becomes a growing concern as we age. Typically jowls are corrected by a cosmetic procedure called iridectomy commonly referred to as a facelift. However, many women are hesitant to go under the knife and seek alternative to surgery. Here are three non-surgical options to choose from to improve the appearance of jowls. The first option is fractal laser resurfacing. Fractal laser treatments work to build collagen to lift and firm the skin. While this treatment is costly at 1,000 to 3,000 dollars it is the most effective non-surgical procedure for jowls. The second option is dermal fillers. Dermal fillers may be injected deep into the skin and makeup for loss of volume in the cheeks which lifts and minimizing the appearance of jowls. The cost of fillers ranges from 500 to 1,000 dollars and the effects last for six to 12 months. The final option is micro current treatments that you can perform at home. Micro current devices send gentle electrical currents into the skin and over time increases collagen production and improves the elasticity for a subtle lifting of the skin. Micro current devices cost between 200 and 400 dollars. And can be used on a daily basis. While these non-surgical procedures won't yield dramatic results like facelift would they are all good alternatives for those who wish to avoid surgery.
