Marionette Lines


Nasolabial lines refer to the deep grooves running from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth. Marionette lines are the deep grooves running downwards from the corner of the mouth (often called puppet mouth)

Unfortunately these groves generally develop due to the ageing process. Fat pads in our cheeks shrink, along with surrounding muscle & this loses the structural support in our midface; making us look old, unhappy and tired.

You can use either dermal filler or anti wrinkle injections or both in these areas to create a more refreshed and younger look:

  1. Volumizing the cheek or mid face with dermal filler can work here as well as lightly filling the lines themselves with dermal filler.
  2. Muscle relaxant injections (anti wrinkle injections) can be given into the muscle surrounding the Marionette lines if these are particular strong; to help decrease the pull of the muscle and hence the corners of the mouth downwards.

Topical anaesthesia is generally given for the filler treatment in this area.

The treatment will generally last 6-12 months. It’s a simple techniques that can immediately take years off, leaving you looking revived and refreshed.
