What are Marionette lines?

Marionette lines are the lines that run from the corners of the mouth down to the chin, so named for the mouth piece of a marionette puppet. These lines arise from repeated expressions using the muscles in the mouth as well as changes in fat and skin elasticity that occurs naturally as we age. Marionette lines tend to give the appearance that someone is frowning and can make the face look sad and tired. These lines can be corrected through cosmetic treatments.

What is the best treatment for marionette lines?

For lines around the mouth, marionette lines are often treated through dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that restore lost volume in the face, stimulate collagen production, and attract moisture to the treatment area. This fills in the wrinkles and folds while improving skin texture and flexibility.

Fillers are a more effective cure for marionette lines and can help remove or at least reduce the appearance of these stubborn lines.

Is Botox good for marionette lines?

Although most people are skeptical about the process but when done correctly, Botox can help reduce some of the marionette lines by preventing further grooving. Most experts recommend a combination of Botox and fillers for the best outcome. Botox alone will not help you achieve the recovery you want especially since the depressor muscles are located in the deeper folds. Botox treatment will relax the outer folds preventing further caving and fillers can conceal existing lines and furrows.

Fillers, as the name implies, fill the hollows which play a great role in the creation of puppet line, plus they increase the amount of collagen on facial skin, thus making it much more elastic. They work to restore skin to its former state which is why they are ideal for marionette lines.

“I am really happy”

I used to go to a different clinic which was much cheaper but I was never satisfied with the results. I always felt that the treatment was rushed. I wanted to try someone else and went to Doctor Q. He really listened to me and advised me on treatments that met my needs. I had Botox to 3 areas and filler around the mouth and nose. He is always available by phone or email for advice. I am really happy with the results.
