Can I have Dermal Fillers for Marionette Lines?

Marionette lines are the lines which extend from each corner of your mouth down towards your chin. They are given their name from marionette string puppets, which are known for having split jaws. Let's have a look at what marionette lines are and how dermal filler can treat them.

As we age, our faces change and often this means facial sagging. Part of this facial sagging is the appearance of marionette lines. Let’s have a look at what exactly they are and how dermal fillers for marionette lines works.

What are marionette lines?

Marionette lines are the lines which extend from each corner of your mouth down towards your chin. They are given their name from marionette string puppets, which are known for having split jaws. Marionette lines can also cause your mouth to look downturned, giving you an unhappy appearance.

What causes them?

One of the first reasons is, as we get older, the fat pads in our upper face gradually diminish, whilst on the contrary, the fat pads in our lower face become fuller. This causes our skin to sag downwards towards our lower face  and develop folds. Secondly, it is important to note that the  skin around your mouth is thinner compared with the rest of your face, so it is more prone to wrinkling, causing marionette lines.

Most people begin to develop  marionette lines in their late 30s or early 40s. In the early stages, these lines are barely visible, but as time goes by these creases can become very deep and noticeable. Once they have appeared, the only way to fix marionette lines is to get to the source of the problem and normally that is replacing this list volume with dermal filler!

Can I have Dermal Fillers for Marionette Lines?

One of the most effective at dealing with deep wrinkles such as marionette lines is through dermal filler injections. They are great for gently plumping out wrinkles, resulting in a smoother appearance, fresher and more youthful appearance. You can use dermal filler to treat marionette lines in two ways. Firstly, injecting filler to add volume in the cheeks will replace the lost volume  in that area. This treatment will lift your skin and, as a result, reduce the appearance of the lines.

Secondly, dermal fillers can be injected below the corners of the mouth to lift the smile and fill out minor creases. This will replace the lost volume in your face by hydrating and treating deep wrinkles and folds, making the skin look more youthful.

How long will Dermal Fillers for Marionette Lines last?

Results are immediate, and will last 6 to 12 months. The expected longevity of your fillers will also depend on the specific brand, your metabolism and other factors. We always recommend patients book in for maintenance treatments every 6 months.
