Marionette Lines Surrey

How can we help?

This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

What Are Marionette Lines?

Marionette lines run from the corners of your mouth along the chin. Sometimes called “oral commissure lines”, these facial creases are noticeable and often leave you with a sad expression. 

The lines take their names from marionette puppets with visibly split jaws and moveable mouths that a puppeteer can control. 

As we grow older, our faces lose volume. Fat pockets beneath the skin usually give it natural plumpness and a healthy appearance. As this fat degrades and gravity moves it down the face,  your skin loses its support and starts to sag.  

Sagging skin in the lower face leads to jowls forming on the jawline and marionette lines appearing around your mouth.

Other factors that contribute to marionette lines include smoking, stress, excessive sun exposure, and overuse of tanning salons.

Restoring Your Facial Structures

Dermal fillers go a long way when it comes to improving lost facial volume. Many people think that injecting filler along marionette lines will correct the problem. The truth is that wider issues will need addressing, including restoring lost mid-face volume and improving support in the chin.

A full assessment of your whole facial anatomy wIll identify the exact treatment areas where we’ll inject fillers. Our clinical team understands the intricate structure of your face and how improving volume in one area can enhance another.

We use fillers containing hyaluronic acid, a substance that instantly hydrates the skin and restores lost volume. Carefully administered injections will subtly enhance your appearance and return your youthful looks.

Procedures are typically brief and pain-free. You may even want to have your treatment on your lunch break.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Causes Marionette Lines?

Marionette lines develop when your face loses volume and gravity pulls at your features. Underlying fat compartments deteriorate and slip, pulling the skin above down. This sagging happens along with changes in the skin’s natural healing ability. A lack of collagen and elastin mean the marionette lines become permanent.

What Is Hyaluronic Acid?

The main ingredient in dermal fillers is hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a natural substance found throughout the human body. It has properties that hydrate and give volume to the areas where it’s present. When injected, your skin will become plump and refreshed.
