Radiesse is a great choice for sculpting the jawline. It is my go to for this indication.
There is more swelling/inflammation following treatment with Radiesse than with other fillers. It lasts about 18 months, compared to most of the hyaluronic acid fillers which last about 9-12 months.
Radiesse is one of my favorite treatments for the jaw
line. It can very nicely create definition and restore contour throughout the
lower jaw line. It can also be used at the angle of the jaw to give a more
attractive “squared off” look.
video link above shows me injecting my wife with Radiesse into the lower
cheeks, marionette lines, and jaw line!
In properly selected patients, Radiesse works nicely for the jawline to create definition and a nice contour. Seek a highly experienced physician injector as this is not a beginner type injection. I hope this information is helpful.

Yes! Radiesse can be used to sculpt areas of the face. I do use it for the jawline and the mandibular angle. The recovery time is quick and it is an office treatment.
Radiesse is a very effective non-surgical method that can be used to augment the chin, jaw line or even angle to get that square jaw look. It is made of calcium paste and quickly hardens to feel like bone. Duration is about 1 year. Usual amount is one to two of the 1.5cc syringes, I charge $750 for the first syringe.
Radiesse can be used in the jawline. You probably only see photos with saggy jowls because those would be more dramatic changes than someone with an already distinct jawline who just wants more definition there. Injection charges will vary, most often depending on the level of the person's expertise in doing the treatment, but all will be based on a per-syringe charge. I've seen prices as low as $550, well up to $1000. Don't shop for price - shop for experience! Especially with Radiesse, as there is no getting the product out other than time, should you not be happy with how it looks!
