Do you have lines etched around your nose and mouth? Smiling, frowning, talking and laughing all create creases in the skin. As your skin loses elasticity with age, these creases become lines that can make your face look older. Marionette lines stretch down from the corners of your mouth, creating a permanent frown and nasolabial fold lines surround your nose and mouth. To erase these dynamic wrinkles, Back Bay Plastic Surgery offers nasolabial fold and marionette lines treatment at our clinic in Boston, MA.
The crease or line extending down from the corners of the mouth are called marionette lines because they create an appearance of a puppet’s jaw. These lines can also create an unhappy appearance when the face is relaxed. Loose or sagging skin can contribute to marionette lines, as well as lost volume and elasticity of the skin. Surgically, a facelift can tighten the loose skin, but there are also non-surgical treatments that can temporarily smooth marionette lines.
Facial filler injections and skin tightening treatments can help dissipate mouth lines. Dermal fillers can plump under the skin and add volume to fill in lines. Marionette lines treatment with RF microneedling can also improve loose skin and tighten the jowls for a more youthful and pleasant appearance.
Get Rid of Nasolabial Folds
The nasolabial folds are the parenthesis that form around the nose and mouth when you smile, also called smile lines. To get rid of nasolabial folds without surgery, the best treatment is the use of dermal fillers. There are various formulas of facial fillers that work wonderfully to add volume under the smile lines to smooth them away and still allow normal skin and muscle movement. The effects can last for several months or longer before the treatment needs to be repeated.
