How to Eliminate Marionette Lines For Good

Are you feeling self-conscious about marionette lines? From facelifts to dermal fillers, here are your treatment options to eliminate these unwanted wrinkles.

Are you starting to notice unwanted lines and wrinkles on your face? One of the most common concerns for patients are so-called ‘marionette lines’, the wrinkles that run from the corners of your mouth down to your chin. They can be caused by a number of factors, including:

  • Constant frowning
  • Weight fluctuations
  • Loss of skin elasticity
  • Loss of facial fat
  • Aging

While there is nothing you can do to stop the aging process, there are certain lifestyle changes you can make to ensure marionette lines take longer to appear such as quitting smoking, getting enough sleep, and following a good skin care routine.

How to Decide What Is The Best Marionette LIne Treatment For You

If you are feeling concerned about marionette lines, the good news is that there are multiple anti-aging treatment options available to restore volume and elasticity to your skin and reduce their appearance.

The first step in deciding what treatment is right for you is to determine what type of marionette lines you have: shallow or deep.

Treatment Options For Shallow Marionette Lines

Shallow marionette lines do not create much crease or cast a shadow. Treating such lines early is critical if you don’t want them to get progressively deeper. Some of the treatment options for shallow marionette lines include:

  • Botox: When Botox is injected around the marionette lines, they can help relax the facial muscles responsible for developing the wrinkles and smooth out your skin. The results can last for several months before a repeat treatment is needed.
  • Laser Resurfacing: Some laser resurfacing treatments can remove damaged outer layers of skin to reveal younger, smoother skin below. They also promote collagen production which can diminish the appearance of shallow lines or wrinkles.
  • Chemical Peels: This involves applying a chemical solution to the skin so that old skin will peel off, exposing a fresh layer of skin below. Following the peel, your skin will appear less wrinkled. The extent of the results depends on which type of peel (light, medium, or deep) you opt for.
  • Microneedling: This treatment makes tiny punctures in the skin around the marionette lines which will stimulate the production of collagen and soften the look of wrinkles.


Treatment Options For Deep Marionette Lines

Deep marionette lines occur after your skin loses significant amounts of fat and collagen. SInce this is an issue with the underlying structure of the skin, rather than the surface, different types of treatments are required.

Your options include:

  1. Dermal Fillers: Facial fillers made from hyaluronic acid will be injected around your marionette lines. This will give a lift and volume to the areas beneath the wrinkles, smoothing out deep lines and restoring a vibrant appearance to your skin. Some of your options include Juvederm, Restylane, and Radiesse.
  1. Facelift: This is a surgical procedure that is used to tighten your facial skin by repositioning the deep tissue beneath it. In certain cases, facial fillers are used after treatment to give contour to your restored skin. Remember: modern advances have turned facelift surgery into a minimally invasive procedure that gives natural looking results with minimal downtime.

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.
