Smiling, frowning, smoking and talking all create dynamic lines around the nose and mouth. As the mouth moves, creases form in the skin. Over time, some of these lines become permanently etched in the skin. Marionette lines and nasolabial folds are common skin creases on the lower face. If you have deep lines around your mouth, minimally invasive cosmetic solutions can smooth these creases away. London BBL Surgery and Body Contouring offers marionette lines treatment to restore a more youthful appearance.
Marionette lines earned their name due to their similarity to a puppet’s mouth. The lines start at the corners of the mouth and travel down either side of the chin. Due to the downward lines, it creates an unhappy appearance to the mouth and adds age to the face.
Nasolabial fold creases, sometimes called smile lines, are the folds around the nose and mouth when you smile. As the skin loses elasticity, these creases stay on the face even when the mouth is relaxed. This can make the face look older, with permanent parathesis around the nose and mouth.
Facial Fillers for Mouth Lines
Both marionette lines and nasolabial folds can be effectively diminished with facial filler injections. Plumping under the skin can smooth the folds and lines with almost immediate results from most dermal fillers. Botox injections can also be used on some mouth lines to relax the muscles that cause the creases even when the face is at rest.
To improve the skin’s overall elasticity to diminish wrinkles, lines, and folds, RF microneedling may be recommended. This can help tighten and firm the skin for a more youthful appearance, and it can be combined with other marionette lines treatments like cosmetic injections. Dr. Daniel Del Vecchio can evaluate your skin and recommend the right treatments to rejuvenate your lower face.
