Perhaps one of the most prominent and worst signs of facial aging are marionette lines. Because these are typically only associated with the very elderly, having them any earlier can make you look years older than your actual age. Fortunately, you can get rid of them!

I have had both Restylane and Juvederm treatments (both procedures that are performed by a doctor) and they were very effective. They both are made of out hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance your skin already produces. It basically acts as a sponge, soaking up and retaining water in the area it is used, and hence, filling in the wrinkle in the process.


So here’s how my story started…. Like everyone I had heard of fine lines and wrinkles, but did you know that there are some wrinkles that have been given distinctive names? I was surprised to hear these ugly wrinkles on my face were “officially” referred to as marionette lines. These lines are used to describe the lines that extend from the outer corners of each side of the nose all the way down towards the chin.

What Are Marionette Lines?
What are marionette lines and why do some people get them? Well,like most signs of natural aging, no ones know for sure. Some say it basically depends on how much excess oils one has in their skin. So if you are oily, it is suspected that you will have less wrinkles in general then other people with dry or normal skin. Other claim these lines form due to “disappointment,” and thus can also be called disappointment lines. There have actually been studies done over an extended time period and have shown that people who smile and laugh a lot tend to have less noticeable ones or none at all.

Getting Rid of Them
One way that women or men can get rid or help diminish these marionette lines on the face is use various types of products that help sooth and hydrate the skin in and around this area, or in other words “plumping” up the creases so they are less noticeable. It would also be wise to find a treatment that is specifically designed to treat these marionette lines on the face.

Treatment Options
Filler for marionette lines are treatments that not only help improve the appearance of these deep wrinkles, but help restore and moisturize skin in this area. One common method that is used is called Restylane. This product is a skin filler used by doctors that to treat deeply ingrained wrinkles and lines. It works by providing extra fullness to the area where wrinkles are apparent. Restalyne is made from hyaluronic acid which is used as an anti aging as well as a treatment for wrinkles. This substance soaks up to an astonishing 1000 times its weight in water, so you can imagine how much it plumps and hydrates these deep wrinkles when it is injected directly into them.

Another treatment that is considered to be at the top of the list is Juvederm. This product comes in a gel form and also has hyaluronic acid in it as the main ingredient. It’s extremely similar to Restylane, but just a different brand. This treatment is available through your doctor and is usually given through injections.

Many people favor the Juvderm injection over collagen based injections because of the significant differences in the appearance of wrinkles. So much so that there was a study I read that 90% of patients who had this procedure to treat marionette lines actually preferred this method in comparison to other derma fillers.

Hyaluronic Acid Skin Care
Another options worth considering are wrinkle filler creams, and no, I’m not talking about those worthless ineffective ones they sell at the drugstore. I’m talking about hyaluronic acid skin care.  You don’t see these products at store very often because they are expensive to produce, so it’s  not cheap enough to be in that $15 to $30 range. It uses the same ingredient as Restylane treatments. The impact may not be as profound, but hyaluronic acid cream is a product you should definitely consider adding to your skincare regimen anyway. I use this wrinkle remover cream everyday because simply put, it plumps my skin and helps my fine lines more than any other topical product I’ve tried. Fortunately, it seems that many of the top wrinkle creams on the market these days actually use hyaluronic acid as a main ingredient!
