Fillers for Marionette Lines

One of the best treatments for Marionette Lines is by the use of dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are injectable material made of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in our body. The function of hyaluronic acid naturally in the body is to maintain the skin’s volume and hydration. It is appropriate, therefore, that fillers made from such materials are the products used to plump up, or fill in hollows and creases in the skin in areas which lose fat or internal shape with normal ageing.

Fillers for Marionette Lines Treatments.

Marionette Lines are the lines running from the corners of the mouth to the chin, and are usually visible in ageing skin. Marionette Lines are caused when the ligaments near the chin and mouth loosen. Fat deposits deplete under the facial skin, and this creates a hollow effect. The skin then sags, and Marionette Lines appear. Because of the” downturned mouth” effect, they can make you look miserable or angry, and this can impact on the way you are perceived by others. Dermal fillers provide an excellent solution for Marionette Lines, because their effect is to thicken the skin and add fullness into the folds, creating an immediately youthful look. Sometimes, this treatment is used in conjunction with Botox injections.

  • How are dermal fillers to erase Marionette Lines administered?

    After assessment by one of our qualified practitioners, dermal fillers are administered by way of small injections through a fine needle, into and around the area of the Marionette lines.

    This gives the doctor control over the volume of filler used, so as to create a natural – looking effect.

  • Is Fillers for Marionette Lines treatment process painful?

    Some of the fillers used at the Clinic have inbuilt Lidocaine, an anaesthetic, to help numb the area treated so as to cause minimum discomfort.

    Others do not, and so a topical anaesthetic is applied, which has the same effect. The process is comparatively quick, and the Marionette Lines are immediately erased.

  • How long does the effect of elimination of Marionette Lines last and are there any side effects?

    Dependent on the type of dermal filler used, the effect can last anything between 6 and 12 months or more. Once the injections have been administered, the area may be a little swollen for a short time.

    Side effects are rare, as hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring in humans, and over time, will be broken down and eliminated naturally through the body.

  • Who will perform the dermal fillers for marionette lines treatment?

    As with all Dermal Fillers treatments, Fillers for Marionette Lines treatment for men and women is performed by a skin specialist who is also on hand to answer any queries you may have and supervised by Doctor Maria Gonzalez.
