Botox vs dermal filler for jowls? (photos)
Doctor Answers 9
This is part of your genetic make-up and unrelated to aging - therefore challenging to treat. Consider botox to the masseters and fillers to created a smoother contour - I don't think Ultherapy will do much.
Combination treatment with Botox and fillers will work best
A small amount of Botox injected into each DAO muscle will help with the downturn at the corners of the mouth. This combined with fillers to the corners of the mouth and pre jowl sulcus will improve the appearance of your lower face. I recommend you see an experienced injector for a formal consultation.
Fillers and Botox...
Thank you for the photos. I would recommend both Botox to the DAO (Depressor Anguli Ori) muscle and a filler like Restylane Lyft or Voluma to the jawline area. This will helps reduce the appearance and correct your concerning areas. Hope this helps. I encourage you to find a provider with experience for this area.

Botox can help with decreasing the appearance of the masseter muscle and also can give a bit of a lift if injected along the mandibular line. Fillers can then be used to help smooth out some areas
Botox is not used on the jowls, filler would be best to camouflage this early change that you see. Best of luck.
Botox and Filler
I believe the a combination therapy would give you the greatest benefit. I would inject your depressor anguli oris muscle with Botox and fill the marionette lines, as well as corner of mouth with Restylane. The Botox will soften the lines and the filler will help lift the corners by adding volume that has been lost.
How about a combo?
I suggest a formal consultation as there are many options to improve this area -- A combination of Sculptra, Thermage/Ultherapy/Venus Legacy, Fillers can all help. Best, Dr. Emer.
Botox & Dermal Filler for Jowl Softening
Looking at your photos, I would recommend initial injection of Botox to the muscle (DAO) just under the corner of your mouth followed by a dermal filler like Juvederm Volift to the area just under the corner of your mouth as well possibly to the area just lateral to the jowl. Remember less is more. Best wishes.
