What We Treat

Marionette Lines Treatment at Novomed

Marionette lines, also known as puppet lines, are the creases that form from the corners of the mouth down to the jawline, giving the appearance of a puppet-like effect. These lines can contribute to an aged and tired look, affecting one’s overall facial harmony and youthful appearance. Marionette lines typically develop due to a combination of factors including aging, loss of skin elasticity, volume loss in the face, and repetitive facial expressions.

Understanding Marionette Lines

Marionette lines become more prominent with age as the skin loses collagen and elastin, leading to a decrease in facial volume and muscle tone. The loss of fat and bone density in the facial area can exacerbate these lines, resulting in a sagging and drooping appearance around the mouth and chin. Factors such as sun exposure, smoking, genetics, and lifestyle choices can accelerate the formation of marionette lines.

Marionette Lines Treatment at Novomed

At Novomed, we understand the impact marionette lines can have on an individual’s self-confidence and appearance. Our dedicated team of experienced dermatologists and aesthetic experts employ a comprehensive and personalized approach to address marionette lines and rejuvenate the overall facial structure.

Assessment and Consultation

The first step in our treatment process is a thorough assessment and consultation. Our specialist will carefully examine your facial anatomy, skin condition, and the severity of marionette lines to develop a tailored treatment plan.

Treatment Options

  1. Dermal Fillers: We offer advanced dermal filler treatments using hyaluronic acid-based fillers to restore lost volume and smooth out marionette lines. These fillers help plump the skin and improve the appearance of sagging, restoring a more youthful and natural look.
  2. PDO Threads: Polydioxanone (PDO) threads are used by our dermatologists to lift and tighten the skin, reducing the appearance of marionette lines. The threads stimulate collagen production, providing a long-lasting rejuvenation effect.
  3. Ultherapy: Utilizing ultrasound technology, Ultherapy stimulates collagen production and tightens the skin. This non-invasive treatment lifts sagging skin, including marionette lines, for a more youthful contour.
  4. Botox and Dysport: Botulinum toxin injections, such as Botox and Dysport, can be used strategically to relax the muscles that contribute to marionette lines, reducing their appearance and preventing further deepening.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What are marionette lines?

Marionette lines are the vertical lines that run from the corners of the mouth down to the chin. They are caused by a combination of factors, including aging, muscle movement, and gravity.

Why do I have marionette lines?

As we age, our skin loses collagen and elastin, which can lead to the development of wrinkles and lines. Marionette lines are also caused by the muscles around the mouth and chin contracting and relaxing. Over time, this can lead to the formation of permanent creases in the skin. Gravity also plays a role in the development of marionette lines, as it pulls the skin down over time.

What are my treatment options for marionette lines?

There are a variety of treatment options available for marionette lines, both non-invasive and invasive.

Non-invasive treatment options:

  • Dermal fillers: Dermal fillers are injected into the skin to add volume and reduce the appearance of marionette lines.
  • Botox: Botox is a neurotoxin that is injected into the muscles to relax them and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
  • Laser skin resurfacing: Laser skin resurfacing removes the top layer of skin to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.
  • Microneedling: Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that creates tiny punctures in the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production.

Invasive treatment options:

  • Facelift: A facelift is a surgical procedure that lifts and tightens the skin of the face and neck.
  • Thread lift: A thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure that uses threads to lift and tighten the skin of the face.

How long do the results of marionette line treatment last?

The results of marionette line treatment will vary depending on the type of treatment used. Dermal fillers and Botox typically last for 6-12 months, while laser skin resurfacing and microneedling can last for up to a year. A facelift can last for several years, while a thread lift typically lasts for 1-2 years.

How much does marionette line treatment cost?

Determining the treatment cost depends on several factors, including your skin condition and the treatment approach used. During your consultation our dermatologist will help you choose the treatment that suits your needs and explain everything about the procedure and how much it will cost.
