Best treatment for jowls without surgery

Great question and one which many will benefit from. Jowls form from loose skin around the mouth, jawline and neck. Non surgical options include ways to tighten skin. The least invasive option includes Ultherapy, which uses micro focused ultrasound waves to heat up tissues deep to the skin. This causes collagen breakdown, with new collagen formation resulting in tightening of the overlying skin surface. 

Other minimally invasive ways include a combination of ultherapy, with liposuction, laser skin resurfacing, facial fillers.

Best non invasive treatment for jowls without surgery...

The non surgical treatment plan for jowls depends upon the age of the patient, degree of sagging skin, amount of herniated fat, overall laxity of the face and neck, and submental fat and volume loss in the upper and mid face. The best non invasive correction for jowls MUST include a *combination* of any of the following procedures: eliminating submental fat with kybella/Coolmini, skin tightening therapy such as Ultherapy, RF microneedling, CO2 laser, PDO Threadlift, and replacement of volume with fillers.

Non-Surgical Solution for Jowls

I suggest a formal consultation as there are many options to improve this area including: Sculptra, Thermage, Ultherapy, Venus Legacy and fillers. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer.

Nonsurgical jowl tightening

Your best option for tightening jowls is indeed surgical. However a modest improvement can be achieved with fat transfer (which I suppose might be considered surgery) or dermal fillers in the cheek bone area, the angle of the jaw, and just on the chin side of the jowl.
