While Botox & fillers are wildly popular among women of any age, most opt for Botox as prevention rather than a cure. Botox injections are designed specifically to soften wrinkles & prevent the formation of new lines & wrinkles, so they’re perfect for preventing those pesky marionette lines that form between the corners of the mouth & jawline. If you’re wondering, “what are marionette lines?” keep reading.
Marionette lines are a set of visible wrinkles that form above your lips. These “fine” lines develop with age, resulting from weakening the supporting collagen & elastin & the loss of subcutaneous fat around the mouth. Facial expressions & the natural movements of smiling, frowning, & talking can further exacerbate these wrinkles.
The appearance of marionette lines around your mouth can be disheartening, but it’s nothing to be too worried about. Marionette lines are thin, often vertical lines between your eyebrows & your upper lip. They can make you look older, but they’re usually caused by repeated facial expressions, like smiling or frowning. Luckily, there are ways to minimize the appearance of marionette lines, making them less noticeable.
Marionette lines are deep vertical grooves that run from the corner of your mouth to your chin. They can be caused by overactive facial muscles, sun exposure, aging or genetics. They’re most common in people over 40 but may appear earlier in some people.
While genetics can’t be changed, there are steps you can take to make wrinkles less apparent. However, erasing marionette lines with makeup alone will not do the trick. Here are some ways how you can get rid of it:
• Laser resurfacing
• Chemical Peels
• Dermal Fillers
• Botox London
Marionette lines are the bane of many a women’s existence. They appear on areas of the face that are very visible, such as the forehead, upper lip, & around the sides of the mouth.
While the lines can be erased through aggressive treatments, such as laser resurfacing & chemical peels, the downtime associated with these treatments can be lengthy, & it’s difficult to determine how effective these treatments are. No wonder many are going for the treatment Botox for marionette lines.
Botox is one of the ways to get rid of marionette lines. The injections are made of botulinum toxin type A, which has been used safely & effectively for the treatment of wrinkles for more than 30 years. The Botox injections are administered directly into the facial muscle to paralyze it, which effectively reduces wrinkles in the short term.
Does it work? Well, the best treatment for marionette lines depends on your skin tone. Botox injections cause temporary skin relaxation, which corrects the appearance of marionette lines. However, most people need to repeat the treatment every 3 to 4 months in order to maintain optimal results. Dermal fillers are a great way to treat marionette lines as they’re extremely popular with patients & also very effective.
