What Are Marionette Lines?

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.

What Can Cause Marionette Lines?

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.

Solutions to Help with Marionette Lines

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:

• Facelift
• Laser resurfacing
• Microneedling
• 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 Injections

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.

I have been a returning customer to Artistry Clinic for a number of years. My first treatment was for nose reshaping, I was so happy with the results, I have since returned multiple times and have expanded to receive other filler based treatment. I am always made to feel comfortable and have absolute confidence in the results every time.

This was my first visit. All staff were very polite and pleasant. It makes such a difference when people are pleasant and respectful towards you. They were all very helpful, though they could know the immediate area around the clinic better for directions. Dr Shah herself was lovely. I look forward to having treatment.

I've been to see Jen at the Renown House/Bury Street clinic twice now. Both times she's been patient, sympathetic and encouraging and she really knows her stuff when it comes to the various treatments and options available for each skin condition. She's always happy to talk through any concerns or worries you have with either the treatment or your skin, and the clinic is always clean and well presented. I've seen improvement in my skin already and I'm looking forward to going back for another visit in the future!

I have been seeing Dr Sarah Shah for almost 4 years now, she has provided me with a multitude of treatments over the years, and I have always been very pleased with the results. I would highly recommend her services which is why I have been such a longstanding customer. I am a real perfectionist, so its hard to find someone that shares my vision and that was just what I found in Dr Shah! I am certain you will not be disappointed with whatever treatment you seek to have with Dr Shah-she will certainly put you at ease and give you a lot of time to ensure you are happy with the results!

I discovered Sarah in 2013 and have never looked back. Her aesthetics are brilliant (Botox and recently the 8 point lift face lift .. both of which left me feeling rejuvenated, lifted but 'natural' .. a perfect balance) Likewise the aftercare (follow-up appointment) is amazing ... you are given as much attention as the initial consultation and Sarah's job is not done until she knows you are happy with the results! Thank you Sarah .. thank you team

I always see great results. And never any discomfort from injections as Sarah always ensures plenty of time for the anaesthetic cream to take effect. You never feel rushed & Sarah & the clinic staff are welcoming & knowledgeable. The clinic itself is 3 mins walk from Aldgate tube. I thoroughly recommend a visit.

I have been to see Sarah 3 times this year for fillers. I have on each occasion had an excellent experience. I have always been seen on time, I didn't feel rushed and plenty of time and consideration was taken with my treatment. She was able to give thorough explanation of what she was doing and why and how I could get the most optimal results from my treatment going forward. There was no pressure or hard sell or making me feel like I needed anything!! (except that my experience was so good that I can't wait to go back!). I have been to a few places in London for similar treatment, all reputable. But I felt most confident in Sarah Shah's clinic.
