Can kenalog-10 be injected to reduce moderate jowling? Would this be a less invasive method than liposuction?

The short answer is no. Kenalog injections may help reduce scars or keloids but. often fails. You need to see an experienced surgeon for you issue.

Kenalog Injections are not a replacement for Liposuction

Kenalog is a sterlid and will cause atrophy of the area.  This is not a replacement for liposuction or a surgical procedure such as facelift.  It would be best for you to see a board certified plastic surgeon to discuss all of your options.  


Good Luck

Kenalog is not going to be an appropriate means of improving a moderate jowl.  I recommend that you see a facial cosmetic surgery specialist who can assess you and discuss the most appropriate options for improving your lower face.  Options include a lower facelift, facial fillers, chin implant, and lower face liposuction for some.
