It happens to everyone at some point: you look in the mirror and notice a less defined profile. Maybe you have the beginnings of jowls forming along your jawline, or perhaps the skin just isn’t as tight as it used to be. Either way, you don’t have to live with it. The LaTorre Lift, performed by Shara LaTorre at Beautique Medical in Knoxville, TN is specifically designed to lift the jowls and restore youthfulness to your profile.
Lift the Jowls Without Surgery
This specially designed process combines multiple treatment modalities to firm sagging skin and lift the jowls, boost your body’s natural collagen production, and fill and smooth creases, folds, and hollows that have developed over time. Depending on the results you are hoping to achieve, your treatment may include PDO threads, dermal fillers like those in the popular Juvederm line, and placement of Botox Cosmetic.
Understanding the LaTorre Lift
PDO Thread Lift
This amazingly effective treatment involves the insertion of tiny fibers, called polydioxanone or PDO threads, into the innermost layers of your skin. These threads stimulate your muscles and fat tissue and cause very small contractions. These produce a toned and lifted appearance throughout the area.
PDO threads also stimulate collagen production within our skin. Since collagen is the source of much of skin’s natural elasticity and firmness, this revitalizes your appearance.
PDO threads produce a natural-looking result by harnessing your body’s natural responses and healing power. Its effectiveness and minimally invasive nature make PDO thread lift an excellent option for treating jowls made up of excess or sagging skin around your chin and neck.
Botox Cosmetic is one of the original cosmetic injectables. It has been used for many years to reduce wrinkles caused by repeated muscle movements in your face. These often manifest as crow’s feet, laugh lines, or furrows between your brows. Botox Cosmetic works by paralyzing these muscles with a small dose of the botulinum toxin.
Dermal fillers are increasingly popular options for those seeking a cosmetic injectable treatment. Of the many available, the most popular line is the Juvederm family of fillers. During your treatment, a gel-like material is injected into the treatment area. This fills out hollows, smoothes wrinkles and creases, and adds volume where you want it.
Although their methods vary slightly, most work as the gel spreads under the surface of your skin, filling voids left by muscle, fat, and tissue lost due to injury or the effects of aging. Juvederm products use hyaluronic acid (HA) for the most natural results. They are achieved quickly and often last for one to two years before needing to be refreshed.
HA is a hydrophilic molecule, so it readily absorbs and retains moisture within your skin to provide a younger and more hydrated appearance. Because your non-invasive lift treatment will be designed specifically for you, it is important that you share the results you hope to achieve during your consultation. You may find that more than one of the Juvederm fillers is needed to achieve the look you want.
What Results Can You Expect?
The results you achieve will be based on the information you share during your initial consultation. That will be used to develop a treatment plan specific to your concerns and goals. However, many people who undergo treatment report results along these lines:
- Increased volume along facial contours
- More elasticity in the skin
- Reduction of the appearance of jowls
- Erased lines and creases
For most people, results will last for about a year, possibly more. If you begin to notice that the results are fading, maintenance treatments can be performed to prolong them.

Who Is a Good Candidate for treatment?
Most healthy adults looking to revitalize their appearance can safely utilize the LaTorre Lift. However, there are some conditions that might keep you from scheduling a session.
