I'd heard mixed opinions on whether botox in the neck cords could tighten the chin contours. I'm glad to say that it worked for me. The effect is subtle, but I do have a sharper jaw line. I may try a touch up, to see if I can get even more definition.

So I got a touch up for the platysmal bands, and also had a little put in my chin to counteract the orange-peel effect. My neck looks much better - smoother and firmer. I was also surprised that the small amount in my chin made a big difference. My chin looks smooth, and the general jaw countour is improved by the relaxed chin muscle.

I had botox in my upper lip three days ago. I love the results. It adds a lot of volume as well as smoothing vertical wrinkles. However, I know from having done this before, that the full effect probably won't last that long, maybe a month. My doctor did two injections from the underside of the lip which sounds painful, but actually isn't that bad. She said injections from the outside of the lip actually hurt a lot more.
Dr. takes time with the injections (I get both restylane and botox), and asks for you feedback during the process. The price is reasonable.
