Recently, jawline rejuvenation and jowl fat treatment methods have received a lot of attention. Many people are extremely upset and complain about the excess fat under the chin or neck and jowl. The study suggests a new procedure for targeting the jowl fat using Endolift laser, highlighting on the feasibility, convenience, and safety of the technique. Nine patients with pinchable fat on the jawline were enrolled in the study. The Endolift laser was performed for jowl fat treatment for each patient. The results of the treatment were measured by biometric assessment. Also the results were evaluated by 3 board-certified dermatologists (blind). Furthermore, patients’ satisfaction was appraised at the end of the treatment. The biometric results showed that Endolift laser can increase the thickness, density, and elasticity of the skin in the jowl area. The patients’ satisfaction results showed good and very good improvement in all of the patients (90%). The results by the dermatologist displayed good and very good improvement in about 90% of the patients. The outcomes of this experience displayed that Endolift laser is a safe and effective nonsurgical method for jowl reduction.
