Marionette Lines

Marionette Lines (Labiomental Creases)

Marionette Lines

Marionette lines (also sometimes known as 'disappointment lines') are the lines that extend from the outer corners of each side of the mouth all the way down towards the chin. Some people naturally have deeper marionette lines than others. Marionette lines form because of loss of the collagen that supports the skin and gives it integrity; they can also be exacerbated by smoking and sun exposure.

Such an appearance can be disconcerting to the patient as it creates a permanent look of anger and frustration.

 

 

The benefits of BOTOX® injections for the treatment of Marionette Lines

BOTOX® injections offer a safe, approved and non-surgical solution to the treatment of marionette lines.

The goal is to lift the corners of the mouth slightly to counteract this 'angry/frustrated' look.

This is an easy procedure for a competent practitioner with experience. The procedure takes 10 minutes and is very straight forward.

For maximum results we can also use the fillers as an adjunct.
