Marionette lines are the lines that you get on the sides of your lips that extend down to the chin area. They can often give people a sad and tired appearance. These lines are very common as we age and start to lose collagen and volume from our face.
If this is an issue for you, one of the first things we do is assess your lip volume. Often lack of support in the lips can lead to these lines.
We also assess the strength of the muscle pulling down the corners of the mouth (Depressor Angularis Oris) and we may combine filler with a small amount of wrinkle relaxing injections to relax this muscle.
It is advisable to combine fillers with suitable skin tightening machine based and home skin care treatments for the best results and to also slow down the ageing process.
