Improve appearance at 29
- First of all, you are very beautiful and it is important to keep that in mind.
- What I notice first is your skin -
- Consider microneedling (Skinpen). It thickens the skin, adding some volume.
- For more volume around the mouth, with Juvederm unsatisfactory, small soft silicone implants may be the answer and perhaps a small chin implant for support.
- However, a real risk for someone young, beautiful and a perfectionist is doing too much - start by doing the least and safest - a little more filler and microneedling are safe.

Aging changes around the eyes and mouth
Skin tone and fullness
Hi! You have such a beautiful face! I can see where you are wishing for better contour in certain spots though. For the small lines around your mouth I would recommend filler as well. As for your chin - I don't see any sagging skin! You have a very youthful cervicomental angle and I don't think I would advise changing anything there. I think you would get the most improvement out of some skin resurfacing under your eyes. It's not so much a contour issue as a thin skin / transparency issue. In the photo you like that is well lit, I suspect you have some lightener or concealer under your eyes. Either an erbium or CO2 laser resurfacing will thicken up your under eye skin and make it less translucent (showing dark circles or puffiness) as well as less prone to those fine tissue paper wrinkles we get there as we age. Those lasers will make your skin red and sore for generally a week to ten days, and afterward it will initially look exactly the same. The real improvement will come in the next six months,as the energy from the laser causes the skin to thicken and lay down new collagen.Best of luck!
Fillers may help
I think you have had enough Bototx and fillers. My only suggestion from your photo would be some filler in your Marionette lines (Radiesse or Juvaderm), and perhaps a small uper lid bleharoplasty, removing only a little bit of skin to remove the redundance. Decisions are best made by a peresonal consultaton with your plastic surgeon and his/her injectionist. Keep up the excellent care of your skin
You're doing almost everything correctly. It's just those pesky under eye areas that always thin out and show up starting around age 30 as the cheek drops, especially with weight fluctuations. Luckily you have very minimal issues, so they can all be fixed with a little filler. Either sculptra or Voluma for the under eye area, though it has to be done carefully/expertly, which can also give you a little bit of a liquid facelift effect. Ultherapy, a tiny amount, could help also pull in the cheek skin so the folds aren't as deep, but I'd do that last after the filler. You need to go slow, step by step, gradually, and not rush it. You look young so these are all small changes
