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

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 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.
