Question: I want to smooth out my jowls and laugh lines but do not want surgery. Do you have injectable fillers that can be used in this area of the face?
Answer: Yes, we have injectable fillers that can be used to smooth out the jowls and laugh lines and they can be very successful at eliminating these problem areas as long as the jowl is relatively mild. Essentially, the filler is placed in front of the jowl so that it creates a smoother line and transition from the jowl to the chin and this gives the illusion that the jowl is eliminated. The laugh lines are simply filled with the filler product and this smooths out the line and makes it less conspicuous. Most fillers last somewhere between 9 and 12 months. Some can last longer, though we typically use the hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane in these areas and I would recommend a consultation at Quintessa Medical Spa so that we can assess your specific anatomy and customize your treatment plan.
