Do you have lines traveling down your chin from the corners of your mouth? These are called marionette lines, and they can create a perma-frown that makes your resting face look unhappy. If you want to smooth away wrinkles and lines around your mouth without plastic surgery, dermal filler injections may be the solution. Our team at pēkomd® cosmetic surgery and rejuvenation center offer marionette lines treatment at our Toledo, OH, clinic.
Droopy lines at the corners of your mouth develop slowly as the skin loses elasticity. The crease deepens and lengthens over time, pulling the corners of the mouth down into an unhappy-appearing position. The lines can travel down both sides of the chin, creating the appearance of a puppet or marionette’s mouth.
Loss of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid in the skin are common causes of deep lines. The body makes less of these elements as you get older, allowing skin laxity that may result in wrinkles and lines. While lift plastic surgery procedures can tighten the skin, there are non-surgical marionette lines treatments that can be performed to rejuvenate the mouth and lower face.
Filler Injections for Mouth Lines
Hyaluronic acid and other fillers can add volume and firmness to the skin around the mouth to smooth away marionette lines. In a short visit to our clinic, you can receive a few dermal filler injections that will plump under the lines at the corner of your mouth or around your lips. Most facial fillers have almost immediate results, improving the firmness and volume of the skin. Marionette lines treatment can give your mouth a more pleasant and youthful appearance that can last for several months or longer until the injections need to be repeated.
If you have a permanent frown due to marionette lines, treatment can effectively smooth away these lines.
