Marionette Line Fillers.
“Marionette lines” or “mouth to chin lines” are the vertical wrinkles that develop over time at the lateral borders of your chin.
They develop because, in addition to the loss of elasticity and collagen in the skin with age, the effects of gravity slowly pull the soft tissues of the face and especially the cheeks downwards over time.
The soft tissues are prevented from migrating too far down by a ligament that runs along the lower border of the cheek and it is there that the lines start to develop.
They are called “marionette” lines because they resemble the lines in the old-fashioned wooden marionette puppets which had moving chins.
About Marionette Line Dermal Filler Treatments.
Marionette lines are best treated using a modern hyaluronic acid based dermal filler.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural and important component of the dermis that is gradually lost with age.
It provides volume and “spring” to the skin.
Replacing the lost volume in your skin creases with natural hyaluronic acid has been proven to be a safe and effective way of softening them and restoring some of your natural beauty.
