Here's some more information about marionettes and how they can be treated.
What are marionette lines?
Marionettes are vertical lines that can appear between the mouth and the chin when the skin naturally ages. They get their name from Marionette string puppets, who are known to have split jaws so that puppeteers can make them talk. The skin around the mouth area can be more prone to wrinkle development as it's thinner, hence why Marionettes can be visible as early as your 20s. Marionette lines can also cause the skin in the lower half of the face to sag.
Whilst it’s natural to develop these lines over time due to ageing, there are some lifestyle factors and crease-causing habits that can lead to the formation of wrinkles. One of the main factors is diet - bad habits such as excessive consumption of caffeine, alcohol and sugar are all known to speed up the ageing process. As well as this, eating processed foods can cause a loss of collagen, subsequently causing wrinkles. Exposure to the - the body will prematurely break down collagen and elastin, resulting in a loss of elasticity. It's therefore vital that we make healthy lifestyle choices to avoid the development of wrinkles.
How to get rid of marionette lines
There are a few different ways to get rid of marionette lines - based on your desired look and your skin type, there will be a different ‘best option’ for everyone. Here are just some of the ways that marionettes can be treated:
- Anti-wrinkle injections: - Using botulinum toxin injections can be a highly effective way to treat and prevent wrinkles, including marionettes. At Revolution Aesthetics, our professionals are trained to administer injections with minimal pain, and to patients that have needle phobias.
- Dermal fillers: - Hyaluronic acid is the active ingredient in dermal fillers which is a natural acid already present in skin cells. This key ingredient helps to plump the skin, boost volume and restore the natural contours to your skin.
- Chemical peels: - Our skin peels have numerous uses and are commonly used for patients that would like to treat acne scars or pigmentation. However,our chemical peels can also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, such as marionettes.
- Microneedling: - This procedure stimulates epidermal growth factors, as well as elastin and collagen production. This then creates smoother and healthier skin and increases the skin’s ability to absorb serums that are used following the treatment.
