Marionette lines are a common and natural sign of aging that appear around the mouth and chin.
The treatment for your marionette lines consists of using dermal filler products to reduce the shadows that start from the corner of the mouth and run down towards the jawline, either side of the chin. They look similar to the lines on marionette dolls and hence are often described as marionette lines. Marionette lines could be caused for a number of reasons including the loss of skin collagen and loss of mid-face volume causing the skin on the face to fall down towards the jaw.

Marionette lines are those going from the outside corner of your mouth downwards to jawline. Their appearance is more prominent with the development of jowls.
Before any treatment, you will need to have a consultation who will be able to assess your areas of concern and recommend the best course of treatment for you. This will also give you a better understanding of the technology used and what each treatment entails to ensure you are happy before committing to any treatment.
As we age, we lose collagen and with it, skin elasticity. When skin elasticity is lost, we get sagging. Another contributor to the problem is the loss of the facial fat that can occur with aging. Although we tend to think all fat loss is good, the fat that we lose from our face serves a valuable purpose as its volume supports the skin and stretches it taut. As volume is lost in the upper part of the cheek, the skin sags, forming both nasolabial folds (from the nose to the mouth) and marionette lines (from the corners of the mouth to the chin).
