Lower Face Rejuvenation with Injections: Botox, Juvederm, and Kybella for Marionette Lines and Jowls
A 55-year-old woman requesting noninvasive rejuvenation of the lower face received multimodal injections in a single office visit to rejuvenate the jowls. The patient experienced no adverse events other than self-limiting bruising at the hyaluronic acid injection site and minimal edema. The outcomes were evaluated as follows: (1) by the patient using the self-rated Face-Q assessment and (2) by 5 plastic surgeons (none of whom were the author of this study) based on the WAS scale and before and after photographs to evaluate the corners of the mouth and the marionette lines. This case study report suggests that the combined use of neuromodulator, hyaluronic acid dermal filler, and synthetic deoxycholic acid can rejuvenate the lower face as a minimally invasive alternative to surgery to the satisfaction of the patient and 6 plastic surgeons (including the author).
