The best treatment for jowls is a facelift. Yes, a filler can camouflage mild jowls but in the end, you are better off with a facelift.

Restylane for the pre-jowl depression
As Dr. Moelleken has said, a facelift is the best way to resolve the jowls becasue they are never isolated. They always have other associated facial aging issues that benefitfrom the facelift. You can temporize though with Restylane in the little depressions that exist in front of the jowls.
Correcting jowls with fillers
The best way to correct jowls is with a well done facelift.
There are temporary measures patients can do with injecting fillers at strategic places along the jawline. For very early jowl formation, these are quite effective.

That is a loaded question. In some cases a filler should not be used at all especially if the jowl severity is anything more than slight. I suggest you resubmit the question with a photo because then you will elicit more specific responses that you can then use in making a decision of what to do.
Jowl Correction with Fillers
Jowls are usually best addressed with a face lifting type procedures, but fillers can sometimes be used to smooth out the jowl and make it less noticeable. I like to use Radiesse for this purpose. The filler is placed deep under the skin along the jaw bone in front of and behind the jowl to camouflage it. This makes the entire jawline appear smoother and refined. This is done in the office and should take about 20 minutes to perform.
