Double Chin & Jowls
Sagging skin in the chin and jowl area can have a very ageing effect.
The problem can be hereditary and it usually increases with age. It can be very resistant to dieting, and is surprisingly common even among younger people. However with treatment the results can be very rejuvenating. At Palm Clinic we work on volumising with dermal fillers or a Nefertiti lift with Botulinum toxin.
