Marionette Lines: What are They?

Beverly Hills CA Plastic Surgeon Offering Facial Fillers

As a child, you loved watching the scene from The Sound of Music where the children sang and danced with marionettes from their own private puppet stage. Now that you’re an adult, you’re starting to see marionette lines of your own…not on the TV, but in the mirror.

Puppet Lines

Marionette lines are called just that because of how they add deep creases in the skin along your corners of your mouth. Where a puppet’s mouth would move, you’re left with stretched or sagging skin that creates the disillusion that you’re unhappy or sad. If severe enough, the lines can even cause you to look upset when you’re smiling.

Creases Along the Sides of the Mouth

Treating marionette lines with options such as dermal fillers can add volume to skin that looks sunken in or stretched out. But because these lines are on such a prominent part of your face, you need to see an aesthetician who is highly experienced in treating them.

Look as Happy as You Feel

Addressing marionette lines can help your face to have a happier looking appearance, as the deep creases start to fade. No longer will you have to worry about if other people think you’re upset or disgruntled, because the frown-like lines blend back into the skin. You can have the confidence of putting your best face first, no matter the situation.

Marionette lines and other facial lines can make you look older than you really are. If you’ve lost weight, deep creases and lines in particular may be something that you’ve begun to struggle with. Contact The Aesthetic Institute today to find out how we can help!
