How to Achieve a Subtle Lower Facelift Without Surgery
Your basset hound is adorable, but looking in the mirror and finding a resemblance in the jowl area isn’t something you ever wanted to see. How do you slow and reverse what time and gravity have done to your once smooth jawline? You may have considered a facelift surgery, but if surgery doesn’t appeal to you, there are non-surgical options available in our Indianapolis dermatology practice. Cosmetic treatments like Botox and certain dermal fillers can provide a subtle lower facelift without surgery, offering results lasting two years or more.

Botox to Tighten Jawline Muscles
Botox has been on the market as a cosmetic wrinkle relaxer since 2002. Following extensive clinical trials and research conducted by dermatologic surgeons nationwide, including in our accredited clinical trials facility, Botox was FDA approved as a temporary treatment to reduce the appearance of forehead lines, crow’s feet, and brow lines. However, Botox is also used as an off-label solution to tighten muscles that have become lax over time. This includes the jaw area in what is known as a masseter muscle. This helps patients reduce teeth grinding, provide a more feminine-looking jawline, and reduce the appearance of sagging jowls for a lower facelift without surgery.
Dermal Fillers to Lift the Lower Face
It isn’t just muscles that lose strength over time. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, the scaffolding beneath the skin that provides youthful volume and plumpness, and elastin, the protein that gives skin the ability to “bounce back” after being stretched out. As both of these youthful building blocks break down, the face loses volume and the skin begins to hang below the jawline.
With dermal fillers, specifically the newer hyaluronic acid cheek fillers Juvederm Voluma and Restylane Lyft, your dermatologic surgeon can restore lost facial volume. This fills out the area while naturally lifting the sagging jowls. This provides patients with the results of a lower facelift without surgery while also restoring lost volume to the cheeks. The best part? Depending on the filler used, your results can be immediately noticeable and last for up to two years, all without a single incision.
Voluma and Lyft aren’t the only fillers that can achieve this effect. Radiesse also provides patients with facial and jawline rejuvenation. Used in a similar way to Juvederm Voluma or Restylane Lyft, Radiesse is injected by a dermatologic surgeon to restore lost facial volume. The difference with Radiesse is that your results improve over time as the filler triggers natural collagen production, restoring the scaffolding beneath the skin. The result is more youthful facial volume that pulls the loose skin back upward to reveal a smooth jawline.
Sculptra is yet another solution that provides patients with gradual results. The entire face looks more youthful while also providing the patient with that smooth jawline over time and after several injection appointments.
