JUVÉDERM® injections in the chin can be very effective.
Juvederm for jowls and marionette lines does wonders.

40's, aging face, Juvederm to sides of chin, starting just under the corners of my mouth and going down to the end of my chin.
I have performed many facelifts over the past 30 years. Following the beauty principles outlined in my book on face and body beauty, women look the most feminine, youthful and attractive with heart shaped faces. Men on the other hand look chiseled and handsome with angularity in the cheeks, chin and mandibular angles. Heart shaped faces have cheeks that are full and round in the front. Cheek augmentation using a dermal filler (I prefer Restylane Lyft) or with cheek implants for a permanent enhancement will create full, round cheeks anteriorly that will feminize the entire face.
Jowls are sagging facial tissues and an indication for some form of a SMAS facelift. The underlying SMAS layer, of the face, must be dissected, lifted, trimmed and re-sutured. The excess skin is then removed and the facelift incisions closed.
My most popular facelift is the minimally invasive, short incision facelift that has all the benefits of more invasive facelifts (traditional, mid-face, deep plane and subperiosteal facelifts) but with these added benefits:
•very small incisions
•minimal tissue dissection = less bruising and swelling = rapid recovery
•can be performed in 90 minutes or less, with or without anesthesia
•no incisions within the hair = no hair loss
•excess fat can be removed
•excess skin removed
•cheeks, chin and jaw line can be augmented with dermal fillers (I prefer Restylane Lyft) or facial implants
•most patients fly back home to parts all over the world in as little as 3 days post-op
I tell potential facelift patients to think of creating a more beautiful or handsome face by working on three tissue levels. The bony structure should be appropriate to make a woman’s face heart shaped and a man’s face chiseled and angular which is described below. Next the fatty layer should be reduced or shaped allowing the shape to be seen and finally excess SMAS and skin evidenced by the presence of jowls) should be removed from the face and neck.
Hope this helps.
Juvederm in the chin- one of the BEST areas
Treatments are safe, effective, and in good hands the results are excellent. I usually use either Juvederm Volift or Voluma in this area. The chin are should be blended in with your corners of your mouth like you suggested. An experienced injector will know how to created a look that would suit you. Go for it!
All the best

Juvederm Injections in the Chin
I often use Juvederm in the chin area, the jowl area, or for facial contouring. This is an excellent area that is often overlooked. I like to combine these injections with skin tightening Thermage laser and find this combination to have the best cosmetic results. Best, Dr. Green
Pre-Jowl Sulcus & Nonsurgical Chin Augmentation Are Important Components Of Nonsurgical Facial Rejuvenation
Likewise, the chin is subject to bone loss and muscle loss leading to recession of the chiin and loss of the more youthful projection. In profile, recession there can be expressed as secondary laxity of the skin and worsening of jawline jowl formation. Restoration of chin volume and projection can also be accomplished simply and easily with volumzing fillers, such as Radiesse Plus or Voluma XC. Both Voluma XC, a Juvederm line product, and Radiesse Plus, a calcium based volumzing filler, in my opinion, would be more appropriate that ordinary Juvederm for the purposes above and, since they are more robust, the results of treatment would likely be longer-lasting.
Be sure to ask to see the before and after photos of any physician from whom you are seeking treatment. These injection areas are not routine treatment sites, like smile lines, and are best left to physicians with experience and expertise in advanced nonsurgical facial rejuvenation.
