A funny expression for facial wrinkles but the term “marionette lines” comes from the feature on marionette puppet’s face allowing them to open and close its mouth. The lines extend vertically from the corner of the mouth to either side of the chin.
Natural skin aging as well as accelerated skin aging (from environmental factors) can cause these lines to appear. If they are bothersome to you, dermal fillers are one approach to smoothing away those lines and enhancing the contours of your lower face for a more youthful look.

Using injections of dermal filler to replenish volume and soften the appearance of wrinkles and creases is a highly technique-driven procedure. Your facial features as well as facial anatomy are key to achieving desirable outcomes. Globally, an appreciation for and a consideration of your physiognomy combined with expert technique will provide symmetry, balance and natural-looking results. Turning back the clock on your appearance is the desired outcome, not changing the way you or others see you.
