The lines which extend downwards from the mouth’s corner towards the jaw are called marionette lines. These lines can give a look of despair and dissatisfaction to the facial appearance. Some people are genetically predisposed to the formation of these lines but there are also other factors influencing their formation including loss of soft tissues volume, bony changes, and reduction in skin elasticity, and active muscles in the lower face.
Dermal fillers treatment can greatly help in treating these lines by lifting the downturned mouth corners into a neutral position. In some cases, a combination treatment may be used in which botox is used for uplifting the mouth and dermal fillers is used for reducing furrows. For treating deep furrows, our expert doctors may recommend using dermal fillers over the time for treating the area which allows the accommodation of dermal fillers within the tissues.
