Sagging skin lower face
There are non-surgical options available for lower face-rejuvenation, Which would include skincare, laser facial treatment, or fillers. Sagging of the lower face is usually a result of Gravitational descent and volume deflation. It would be best to have a consultation with an experienced facial surgeon to determine the best treatments for you.

Dermal fillers provide volume in the skin where it has been lost because of the aging process. We typically lose about 1 teaspoon of facial volume every year after about 30-35 years old.
There are several dermal fillers we would consider. Restylane, Perlane, Radiesse and Sculptra would all be possibilities. The first three can all be used if we were injecting directly into the nasolabial folds (around the nose and mouth). But instead if we chose to work up at the cheeks and replace volume there to provide lift to resolve the issue around the mouth and chin, we would likely stick to Radiesse or Sculptra.
The choice of product has to do with the area of the face, your budget, how long you want to the product to last and how quickly you want to see results. Find a skilled injector in your area to get their idea of how to help and take a look at the before and after photos of Los Angeles dermal filler patients with the same issue.
