The lines on either side of your mouth that head down towards your chin are often referred to as marionette lines because of the similar mouth lines seen on the faces of marionette and ventriloquist puppets. Selecting the appropriate facial fillers and precise placement of the injections is essential to soften these deeper lines and provide a smooth, even look. It is highly recommended that the choice and injection of fillers for marionette lines be done by a plastic surgeon.
An intimate knowledge of the facial muscles and structure are important to assure accurate placement for the treatment of these lines. Understanding the differences between how each facial filler works, and its end result, will guide the physician in recommending the appropriate filler or fillers to be used in your treatment. At The K Spa, our plastic surgeon, Dr. Stong and a highly-qualified team of medical professionals are available to direct and perform the treatment of your marionette lines.
The development of marionette lines is often accompanied by other signs of aging in your mouth and chin area. By working with our dual board certified plastic surgeon, you can expect to receive guidance in your anti-aging treatments that are comprehensive and complete, addressing all your areas of concern. In many cases, our aesthetics team will use a combination of injectables, both fillers and neuromodulators, to provide you with the best possible results.
Facial fillers, like other injectable, non-surgical treatments, are temporary. As you begin to see the effects beginning to wear off, the treatments can be repeated. If, at any point, you’d like to discuss a more permanent solution through plastic surgery, Dr. Stong will be happy to explain those procedures and the results you could expect. At The K Spa, you are always the one in control. We respect your right to choose your own treatment path and will never pressure you to make one choice over another.
