Problems with notches around the jawline?

Hi Dr. Irwin. I am 33 yrs old female. I have been noticing what you described as 2 notches along my jaw line below the corner of my lips on both sides. My doctor tried to inject fillers therw twice now, 1 cc each time. But it just enchanced them there anything I can do? Or any info i can read? I have been doing some research on the web, and the only site that talks about the notches is your. Thank you.

You may need to write me back on this.  When you say “below the corner of the lips,” do you mean truly down on the jawline (the mandible) or further up between the lips and the mandible.  Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
