Thank you for sharing your question and photographs. It appears that 2-3 syringes would work well for your chin and anterior jawline. If you wish to add further definition to the back jawline then likely 4-5 syringes would be needed.

Thank you for your question! Although it is difficult to say without an in-person examination, you should be a good candidate for Radiesse injection. Calcium hydroxylapatite (commonly referred to as Radiesse) is firmer than most fillers, so it’s a frequent fix for deep, deep groves and to enhance bony contours, such as the jawline. Know that this product typically lasts anywhere between 12 and 24 months.

But buyer beware; injection techniques can vary. It’s the art and science of what doctors do, and it’s important to choose your doctor wisely. I suggest finding a physician with plenty of experience using this product. I suggest making an appointment with a board certified plastic surgeon to discuss your options.
