Marionette lines

Marionette lines are a kind of wrinkle which runs between the mouth and chin, and often seem to ‘sag’ in the lower half of the face. They get their name from their resemblance to string puppets. Marionette lines create a sad or angry look.

Marionette lines (and wrinkles around the mouth) are amongst the most common there are. Wrinkles are caused by the constant movement and contraction of muscles in our faces; as we age, our bodies no longer produce enough collagen, elastin, or fat, to repair the damage created. As such, lines develop – especially around the mouth where there is near constant movement.

Marionette lines tend to form when you’re in your 40s. But, depending on factors such as your health and lifestyle, you can begin first seeing signs of Marionette lines.

Treatments

At Luxe Skin, there’s several effective treatments for Marionette Lines.

FaceTite

FaceTite is exceptionally effective for handling marionette lines. Through the use of radiofrequency, the procedure ‘melts’ fat and tightens the skin – removing the wrinkle.

Botox

Botox is a good choice for handling Marionette lines. Botox can be used to relax the muscles which are pulling at the corners of the mouth – reducing the activity and movement of the muscles that cause the Marionette lines.

Botox treatments tend to be quick and undemanding, and so are an excellent alternative to many traditional treatments – which are both more expensive and have the potential for complications.

Treatment for Marionette lines

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are fantastic for handling Marionette Lines. Unlike Botox treatment which relaxes muscle, Dr Q’s dermal filler treatment will add volume and plump up the area where the line has formed. This ‘fills’ up the Marionette Line, but the skilled treatment provided by Dr Q ensures you retain a natural look.

Chemical Peels

A chemical peel treatment can be an effective approach to a Marionette line issue; they work by ‘removing’ the outer layer of skin – the epidermis, and stronger peels can remove parts of lower levels like the dermis too. This reduces the look of wrinkles like Marionette lines and helps the emergence of fresh skin cells (which are stronger and have a youthful look to them).

Microneedling

A Microneedling (or Collagen Induction Therapy) treatment works through the creation of tiny openings on the skin. These small injuries then spur the body to repair the skin by producing more collagen and elastin – which give our skin its plumpness and volume. A Microneedling treatment by Dr Q can be used to seriously improve the appearance of Marionette Lines, adding additional, natural volume to the face and skin.
