Marionette Lines Treatment
Lines often form around the mouth, impacting the youthfulness of the lips and face. The nasolabial fold can create smile lines that look like parenthesis around the mouth. Lines can also extend from the corners of the mouth, etching wrinkles that are referred to as marionette lines. If you have lines and wrinkles around your mouth, there are non-surgical cosmetic solutions. Dallas Facial Plastic Surgery Center offers nasolabial fold and marionette lines treatment at our clinic in Irving, TX.
The skin loses volume and firmness with age. Every time you smile, talk or frown, the muscles that move your lips are creating creases in the skin. As collagen is lost and the elasticity of the skin fades, these creases become lines that stay in place. Marionette lines can create a perma-frown, making you look sad or upset even when you are feeling joyful. To reduce the appearance of lines around the mouth, there are a few different options.
Dermal fillers are an excellent option for marionette lines treatment. There are hyaluronic acid fillers that are flexible enough to use around the mouth to plump under lines and allow normal lip movement. Other options include collagen induction therapy, laser treatments and skin tightening, which can help firm the skin.
Get Rid of Nasolabial Folds
If you have deep smile lines along the nasolabial folds, facial filler injections are the best treatment to smooth these lines. Dr. Stefan Shuaib can determine the best formula to use to plump under these lines while allowing normal mouth and facial muscle movement. Denser formulas are needed for deep nasolabial folds, while smaller particles of hyaluronic acid are better for mild to moderate lines.
Dermal fillers are the “go-to” for both nasolabial folds and marionette lines treatment. Most facial fillers last at least several months, and some can last 1-2 years or more. The hyaluronic acid fillers can give you almost instant line and wrinkle elimination with no downtime needed.
