Marionette lines are those deep lines that you find going from the corner of your mouth and go all the way down to your chin, and the main reason people hate them is that they are responsible for creating the “sad look.”
What causes the marionette lines? Marionette Lines
The main reason for these lines is aging. With aging, we tend to lose fat, hydration, collagen, elastin resulting in sagginess in the area. Sun exposure is also responsible for the degradation of collagen and elastin.
How can the marionette lines be treated?
One of the best results is achieved when the loss volume is restored; therefore, you can treat them with Hyaluronic acid fillers. These fillers are placed directly in the affected area and will add instant volume and increase collagen production.
Radiofrequency is one of the most loved treatments. It is a non-invasive treatment that can increase skin tone, reduce sagginess, increase collagen production and reduce wrinkles. You must know that results are not immediate, and you will need multiple sessions.
Resurfacing laser is also another option to treat marionette lines; this procedure aims to renew the superficial skin layer and increase collagen production. With this treatment, you will also notice less sagginess.
