Are lines appearing around your nose and mouth? The nasolabial folds and marionette lines are some of the most common facial wrinkles that can affect the lower face. If you have downward lines at the corners of your mouth, these “marionette lines” can create a permanent frown. To create a more pleasant and youthful appearance, come see us at HMS Plastic Surgery in Miami, FL, for marionette lines treatment.
The corner mouth lines can make your chin look like a puppet’s mouth, which is why they are called marionette lines. At rest, your mouth may appear to be frowning due to these lines. Loss of elasticity and volume in the skin can result in undesirable lines around the mouth. This can also create the deep lines along the nasolabial fold, the parenthesis around the nose and mouth. For a quick rejuvenation of the lower face, facial filler injections can be used for marionette lines and nasolabial fold treatment.
Eliminate Nasolabial Folds
The most common treatment for lines around the nose and mouth is facial filler. Most FDA-approved treatments for nasolabial folds are hyaluronic acid filler injections. Hyaluronic acid can add volume deep in the skin to plump under lines and wrinkles. The substance adds moisture to smooth the lines surrounding the mouth. Different formulas may be recommended for specific lines to create a smoother appearance and allow for natural facial movement.
Dermal filler injections can create immediate results for marionette lines and nasolabial fold treatment. Most dermal fillers last between 6-18 months, depending on which filler is used. Other treatments that can diminish lines around the nose and mouth include skin resurfacing and non-surgical skin tightening procedures. Many patients choose a combination of treatments to achieve a more youthful and pleasant appearing facial appearance.
