Marionette lines are the lines that run straight down from the corners of the mouth to your chin. These lines develop as facial volume starts to diminish and deeper folds begin to form below the mouth.
Marionette lines can be corrected through dermal filler injections in and around the lines. These injections repair lost volume and take away the sad look caused by marionette lines. The overall goal of this treatment is to soften the appearance of the lines and rejuvenate that part of your face.
Dermal filler is a non-permanent gel that contains hyaluronan acid. Because hyaluronan is a natural substance already in the skin that decreases as we age, dermal fillers made from this substance are a perfect choice for rejuvenation.
The dermal filler is injected into the corners of the mouth and the marionette lines. With a series of injections, we can smooth out the lines and minimises the appearance of the jowls.
Marionette line treatment through dermal fillers should restore the natural curve of your jawline and give you a youthful facial shape.
The Benefits of Dermal Fillers:
Suitable candidates are near or at a healthy weight and are in good health. Candidates for marionette line treatment are individuals who want their marionette lines to be less prominent. You may have recently noticed these wrinkles as a result of getting older, or you may always have had lines in this area as a result of genetics.
If the appearance of lines around your chin is a concern for you, then marionette line treatment may be right for you.
Like all cosmetic injection procedures, redness at the injection site may appear for up to an hour following treatment along with mild bruising. Some patients experience some mild swelling for up to one week after treatment. To minimise swelling and bruising try avoiding anti-inflammatories and alcohol for 24 to 48 hours before treatment.
