What Can Be Done About Marionette Lines?

April 21, 2013 - by Dr. Jules Feledy

Facial wrinkles are among the most unwanted signs of aging, and yet, among the most noticeable. Lines around the mouth and nose are among the most undesired by clients, such as marionette lines.

Marionette lines are the creases that form at the corners of your lips and extend down to the chin, which make the mouth appear droopy and gives the face an overall more grim or scornful appearance. Marionette Lines occur with the gradual loss of collagen and the decrease of fatty deposits in the mouth region. Some people never develop them, but others are genetically predisposed to them. Environmental conditions such as sun over exposure, poor diet, and smoking can also have an impact.

What’s the best treatment for marionette lines?

Since one of the causes of marionette lines is depleted fat deposits, one of the better ways of treating them is filling that space up, with a dermal filler like Juvederm. By filling that empty space under the skin, the appearance of marionette lines and other facial wrinkles can be minimized, if not outright erased.

If you’re worried about the onset of marionette lines, steps you can take ahead of time to avoid them include proper sunlight protection, getting lots of vitamins, exercise, and smoke avoidance. If, however, your smile falls victim to the onset of time, and marionette lines still occur, contact your plastic surgeon and book a consultation to see if Juvederm or another dermal filler is the right treatment for you.
