Sagging jowls are caused by decreased laxity in the skin. As one ages, the skin cells ability to retain water decreases and the skin becomes drier and it stretches. Collagen production decreases as well, resulting in the skin losing fullness and elasticity. Radio frequency is a treatment for sagging jowls in Dallas. It works by delivering energy to the dermal tissue, heating the treatment zone, which induces collagen contraction resulting in skin tightening. This treatment is virtually pain free and has no downtime. Patients say it feels like a nice warm massage. For optimal results a series of radio frequency treatments are recommended about every 3-4 weeks.
