Marionette Lines

What are Marionette lines?

Marionette lines take their name from marionette puppets, as the lines run from the corners of the mouth down to the chin and resemble the mouth of a puppet. These lines are caused when the skin loses elasticity due to ageing and the damaging effects of sun exposure. Weight loss can also cause marionette lines, when fat is lost on the face and causes crease lines from the mouth to the nose. Whatever the cause, they are ageing and cause women distress related to ageing and they can be improved.


How can Marionette lines be improved?

Dermal fillers are an effective treatment for marionette lines; they increase volume under the skin and reduce the marionette fold lines. They work by providing extra fullness to the area where wrinkles are apparent.

How does the treatment work?

Dr. Renée uses a cannula in this area to minimise bruising and uses it to carefully place the filler underneath the area in a scaffold arrangement lifting and supporting the area.

What product is used?

We use a hyaluronic acid filler from Restylane. Usually Restylane Lyft or Defyne.

Will it hurt?

The procedure is relatively pain free because we use a cannula and there is therefore only one small needle hole made each side with a very small needle. The filler also contains a local anaesthetic.

How long does the treatment take?

Around 15-20 minutes.

Are there any side effects?

As with all filler injections you may see some redness and swelling around the needle sites. Bruising is possible but the chances of this are minimised due to the use of a cannula.

There is no downtime with this treatment.

When will I see results?

Results are immediate!

How long do results last?

Around 9-12 months depending on the patient and the filler used.

The amount of filler needed will be determined during your consultation.
