Customizing Combinations Of Fillers Works Well For Treating Deep Marionette Lines And Submental Crease Region.
For deep marionette folds, I prefer the combination of Radiesse, a calcium-based volumizing agent, and Restylane SubQ, a robust hyaluronic acid volumizing agent for nonsurgical chin augmentation. Radiesse is known to stimulate neocollagenesis (native collagen production), which is an added plus of this agent, and Restylane SubQ gives remarkable and relatively long-lasting lift.
Atlhough I routinely use Restylane SubQ in my practice in Israel, it is unfortunately not yet available in the United States. In my Upper East Side NYC practice, I combine Radiesse with Perlane L (another member of the Restylane family of products). Occasionally, when there is also a need for contouring in the region of the submental crease, I might choose to add Juvederm Voluma to the treatment mix.

Radiesse or a hyaluronic acid filler
There are many filler choices for this are- Radiesse is definitely one of them. The other options you have are the hyaluronic acid fillers like Restylane, Juvederm, or Perlane. There are advantages and disadvantages to each of these fillers and without a photo it would be difficult to say which one is right for you.
Radiesse is calcium hydroxylapatite within a gel matrix. The benefit to Radiesse is that it typically lasts longer than the hyaluronic acid fillers and it stimulates your body's own collagen growth where it was injected. The downside to Radiesse is that if you don't like the look of it or if you get a firm bump or nodule after injection it is not reversible.
The hyaluronic acid fillers don't tend to last quite as long- however you're less likely to get a nodule after injection. Additionally, hyaluronic acid fillers can be "reversed" with hyaluronidase if you don't like the look of the filler or if you do get a nodule or lump.
I would recommend that you consult with a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon in your area.
Best of luck!
