Botox For Marionette Lines: What You Should Expect From This Treatment

Marionette lines are the grooves or furrows that run from the corners of your mouth down towards the jawline. Often, the corners of the mouth are turned down as well, leading to a more aged or sad look.

Botox is often recommended for the treatment of marionette lines because it helps relax the facial muscles responsible for developing these wrinkles, and smooths out your skin.

The first step to any Botox treatment is a consultation with your skin specialist. During this appointment, we will assess your aesthetic goals, medical history, and concerns, to determine if this is a safe option for you.

Here’s what you can expect from the day of your treatment:

  • You will be asked to sit back on a bed with the backrest up
  • The treatment area will be cleaned
  • Often, the skin over the muscles to be injected is marked out
  • The muscle will be injected
  • Your skin care specialist has the knowledge and experience to inject it in the correct place and will avoid any unwanted side effects such as weakening of the surrounding muscles.
  • Once injected, light pressure will be applied to the area to prevent bruising
  • The skin markers will be wiped off

Botox Aftercare: How to Look After Your Skin Following This Treatment

As with any cosmetic treatment, Botox aftercare is critical to ensure the best and most desirable results. It’s important to follow your specialist’s post-care instructions to avoid any unwanted side effects and recover faster. Here’s what to expect:

  • Slight bruising can occur, but it can be concealed with makeup until it resolves.
  • The effects of the treatment will be visible after 3-10 days and they’ll last between 2-4 months.
  • It’s important to note that some patients dissolve Botox faster than others, so the longevity of the results is variable.
  • First time patients may be required to return after 2-3 weeks for a follow up and top-up if required.
  • Most patients can expect to do repeat treatments every 12 weeks.

Latest Testimonial

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
