Marionette lines are sometimes called smile lines because they occur over a lifetime of smiling. Although smiling means you’re at your best, it can cause creasing and folding as the aging process sets in. We offer a number of effective, non-surgical options so you can enjoy your best moments without worrying about signs of aging.
What Causes Marionette Lines?
Marionette lines are caused by the aging process where collagen begins to break down and your body becomes less effective at replacing it. The result is a lack of volume where the skin creases and folds in areas of high movement like the mouth. These can also occur around the chin where jowls form over time and volume falls forward on the face.
What are My Options for Marionette Lines?
There are some effective, non-surgical treatments for marionette lines at our Beverly Hills office. Read more about your options:
Injectable fillers are some of the most effective options for marionette lines and signs of aging in the lower face. They work by restoring lost volume with a soft gel so that the skin is supported and supple. Options like Juvéderm® can produce results for around one year.
RF microneedling can stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin with regular treatments, making it an excellent option for fighting signs of aging. This is especially the case if you have sagging skin that can’t solely be addressed with fillers.
The best treatment is prevention. Our skincare experts can recommend the best products for you from our selection of physician-grade options to supplement your at-home care and maintain your results.
