Drooping lines at the corner of the mouth are known as marionette lines. They are the vertical lines starting at the corners of the mouth down to either side of the chin. They start to appear by the late 30’s or early 40’s, but the age when they become noticeable varies considerably by person. As we age the skin starts losing moisture and with it the firmness and elasticity that it once had. Smoking and excessive sun exposure can also make the marionette lines worse.
Loss of volume in the cheeks and lateral sides of the face causes the lines on the sides of the mouth. Therefore restoring the volume lost in the cheeks, jaw and sides will lift the entire face. Injection of dermal filler with cannula along the marionette lines will soften the lines and improve the look of entire face. Alongside laser which will help to rejuvenate the skin from within for longer lasting results.
Sometimes the practitioner might add Botox injection to lift up the corners of the mouth thus creating a happier look.
