A jowl is the drooping bit of skin and fat on your jawline. It is mainly caused by the fatty tissue in your face moving downwards as you age. In the end, the appearance of a jowl can make you look sad, tired and older.
Before thread-lifts were introduced, the main treatments available to combat the problem were dermal fillers or a surgical face lift.
At Nu-U we use a thread-lift which is a minimally invasive treatment. By placing a thread under the skin and into the fat tissue we can pull these threads up to lift skin and fat. The thread is the same material used in surgery to stitch wounds and is called Polydioxanone (PDO) threads. These threads have small tags on them that help to latch onto skin and fat so when the thread is pulled up, the skin and fat are pulled up too.
A jowl thread lift is a treatment that places these threads across your jawline. The threads are pulled up to lift the jowl up the face and remove it sagging across the jawline. This results in a defined natural jawline.
I cannot recommend NU-U highly enough. I have had my “Vampire Facelift” done by both Dr Rai and Dr Punater and each time it has had an amazing effect on my skin. I’m so glad I have found these doctors. They are welcoming and know exactly how to make your skin so much more radiant.
Excellent. I went to NU-U just before my wedding due to some frown lines. My treatment was amazing start to finish. Everything I was worried about was carefully looked at and precisely corrected.
PRP here is the best I’ve ever had! I have to get PRP done on my hair following a hair transplant. Lots of my friends have had very painful experiences with scalp PRP. Dr Rai does my treatment with a fast machine and it is so much better than the places I visited in London.
Excellent service. I’ve had several different treatments from Dr Punater at NU-U. Each one has given great results and I’ve been amazed at how easy he makes everything look. This is definitely the best place I have been to for cosmetic treatments.
From the moment I was greeted by Dr Rai I felt I was in safe hands. This is an amazing clinic where they really aim to look after you and I wouldn’t trust anyone other than Dr Rai now. The botox injections I had were far less painful and gave a much better result than anywhere I’ve been before. Would highly recommend NU-U to everyone.
Great Professional Service! I felt at ease with these guys. Very caring, professional and explained everything to me. Gave me my options and guided me through what would be best for my skin. I’ve not been to other clinics and having chosen this one I don’t think I’d ever go anywhere else.
