QUESTION

Using Botox or Radiesse for Contouring Jaw Line?

I saw on various websites you can use Botox to slim a jawline. My doctor recommended Radiesse instead. Can someone please explain the difference? Thanks.

ANSWER

Botox and Radiesse

Thanks for your question - The two medications you are referring to are completely different. Botox works by paralyzing muscles to decrease wrinkles caused by muscle contraction. It is unlikely you would see significant "jaw slimming". Radiesse is a dermal filler and will ADD volume, not reduce it. Find a board certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist and get input regarding your concerns and options. I hope this helps.
