The best way to deal with marionette lines is to prevent them from occurring in the first place
Marionette lines are the shadows that start from the corner of the mouth and run down towards the jawline, either side of the chin. They look like the lines on marionette dolls and hence are often described as marionette lines. Loss of skin collagen and loss of mid-face volume causes the skin on the face to descend towards the jaw. This results in the formation of jowls and marionette lines.
Dermal fillers made with hyaluronic acid can be injected below the corners of the mouth to lift the smile and fill out minor creases. They replace the lost volume in your face by hydrating and treating deep wrinkles and folds, improving your skin’s health and youthfulness for a natural look.

When considering Aesthetic treatments we want you to have a safe journey. The following information should allow you to know what to expect.
Dermal fillers are natural or synthetic gels that are injected into the skin to volumise, lift and improve the appearance of lines. Most dermal fillers are completely biodegradable and temporary. In the UK, there are over 160 brands available on the market and the vast majority consist of hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar chain molecule found in all skin and soft tissues throughout the body, identical across species. It attracts and binds water in the skin, providing volume and hydration, but also ‘cushioning’ and supporting collagen and elastin fibres and providing a medium, or carrier, for chemical messages between the cells.
Dermal fillers are manufactured, usually through fermentation and cross linking with proteins to produce a clear, sterile gel for injection into the skin.
Not all hyaluronic acids are the same and legitimate brands are not available for general sale on the internet and should only be administered by trained clinicians.Each brand has a range of ‘tissue tailored’ products indicated for different areas and depths of injection. One size does not fit all.
Dermal fillers are injected directly into the skin to provide instant correction.
Many dermal fillers contain local anaesthetic to provide pain relief during the procedure although some practitioners may apply a topical anaesthetic cream or ice prior to treatment to numb the skin.
The procedure may be uncomfortable but is not usually painful. Certain areas, such as the lips, are more sensitive.
All treatments carry a degree of risk. All risks and complications will be discussed with you at consultation and prior to any treatment being agreed.
Dermal fillers should be administered by a healthcare professional with specialist training. Adverse events are uncommon, usually occur within a few days of treatment and are expected to be temporary, usually resolving spontaneously within weeks.
Your practitioner will provide aftercare advice designed to minimise risk and promote speedy recovery from any expected side effects.
Side effects include, but are not limited to:
Your practitioner will take a detailed medical history and an assessment of your needs and expectations to ensure this is an appropriate treatment for you. This must be a practitioner who is qualified, registered with a professional body and insured to conduct the treatment.
Please contact your practitioner if redness, tenderness or swelling worsens after 3 days, rather than settling. Though some tenderness is to be expected, pain is not and should be reported. If the skin appears dusky or mottled, blisters appear, the skin is becoming hot or red or the area is becoming painful, contact your practitioner immediately.
If you suffer any of the following symptoms, which may indicate a serious allergic reaction, seek immediate medical attention:
If you are at all concerned about symptoms you were not expecting or any that concern you, you should contact the practitioner who treated you and make an appointment to be seen.
If you wish to see someone else, contact your practitioner and ask for a copy of your treatment record and/or a referral letter. This detailed information will be important if another practitioner is going to safely help or advise you.
If you suffer any adverse reactions or a poor cosmetic result, it may be that correction is not possible and you will be advised to wait until the dermal filler has been broken down by the body.
Most people after a dermal filler(Lip filler or Lip enhancement) treatment can continue with normal activities. Some will have some redness, pinprick marks, swelling (particularly following a lip treatment) which should settle within a few days. Cold packs may be advised to help alleviate swelling and arnica may be recommended to reduce bruising. Your practitioner will provide you with aftercare advice.
Bruising and swelling may be more apparent the next day and can take up to 14 days to disappear. Tenderness should settle within 48 hours.
After Dermal filler(Lip filler or Lip enhancement) treatment, it is expected that you will see an improvement straight away although due to initial swelling, the product may feel hard or lumpy or asymmetrical immediately afterwards. The results are best judged at a 2-week review appointment. Depending on the product used and the area treated, results may last from 4 months to in excess of a year.
