Marionettes run from the corner of the mouth down to the jawline and take their name from the marionette puppet. These lines can develop in anyone, but people who smoke or spend considerable time in the sun are generally more prone to develop early signs of ageing.
As we age, the skin loses it elasticity as a result of collagen loss and the face can start to hollow and lose volume which can make the face appear gaunt, leading to lines and folds.
To restore the marionettes, a dermal filler is injected into the fold lines to provide fullness. This reduces the hollowness and supports the corners of the mouth and prevents down turning of the mouth.
For anyone who has a natural mouth frown, small regular doses of Wrinkle Relaxers to the muscles in this area relaxes them and stops them pulling downward. Wrinkle Relaxers can be used in conjunction with Dermal Fillers.
During your initial consultation, your practitioner will evaluate your areas of concern and develop an individualised treatment plan to optimise your results.
