Marionette lines are long, vertical lines that start at the corners of the mouth and extend downwards towards the chin. They are visible on a person’s face as landmarks for general expression. However, for some, these lines deepen or turn downward and may create a cosmetic concern. To improve these lines, I would recommend a filler introduced in the following manner:
1. A direct placement of the filler of your choice in two planes beneath your marionette lines will diminish the problem
2. I would also place a small amount of filler on the underside of the upper lip near the corner. This will roll the lip up nicely to produce more of a smile while also reducing the deepened marionette lines.
3. This is a 5 minute procedure with minimal to no downtime.
