"Ripples" Of The Lower Cheeks Can Respond Well To A Combination Of Dilute Botox And Dilute Filler
If it is due to the Radiesse and a more immediate solution is required as may prove to be the case here, I have had gratifying results treating similar problems of "ripples" and crinkles at rest and with expression (i.e. static and dynamic crinkling) of the lower face to the sides of the mouth using a combination approach of diluted Botox and diluted Restylane. The diluted concentration of the filler serves to volumize and stretch the ripples and the diluted Botox, which is typically injected immediately after the filler, serves to damp slightly the muscles of facial expression that contribute to the crinkling/rippling in that region. Both materials are injected via cannula in a cross-hatched pattern throughout the affected region.
Consultation with a board certified aesthetic core physician with extensive expertise and experience in these techniques is of course strongly advised.
