Can OTC Skin-care Products Tighten A Sagging Jawline?

The answer is NO! Sagging around the jawline is in fact a surgical problem. It occurs when the skin has lost its elasticity and become loose. The cheek has fallen and created loose skin on the jaw called jowls.

While deep nasolabial folds or marionette lines at the corner of the mouth can be greatly improved by injected fillers, the jawline may not be helped by Botox or any other injected filler substance.

Is that the miracle cream?

Some people may think that a topical serum can visibly and permanently tighten a sagging jawline. Scientifically, it is impossible to apply a serum and have it tighten a sagging jawline, and the reason is simple. The aging process is more than skin-deep. It affects bones, muscles and ligaments as well as the dermis and subcutaneous fact. Therefore, there is no way to claim that there is a magic serum that when applied to the skin will take care of the aging of all these structures underneath. What these OTC products do is to dry your skin. It feels tight because it’s dry, so you could be fooled into thinking that the skin is actually tightening around the muscle. It’s not – and there’s no visible change. Despite what many advertisers would have you believe, there is no face-lift in a bottle.

Doctor’s advice

A sagging jawline is the number one indication for a face-lift, nothing else will make it go away.
