Marionette Lines on Face

marionette lines on face

Everyone ages, this is just part of life. Some are able to reach all the way up into their late 50′s before they even start seeing any signs of wrinkles or skin damage. And others (most of us) may not be so lucky. Many of this depends not only on our genetics, but a lot of it has to do with our environment as well.

When it comes to marionette lines, it’s true that they probably do make you look 10 or 15 years old, but luckily this is something you can easily fix. There are some extremely effective procedures such as Restylane and others that can virtually eliminate these embarrassing deep wrinkles.



When It Starts
I for one can relate to starting to see the signs of aging. I remember when I was in my early twenties and I used to think that 30 years old was getting up there in age, but now that I am here I no longer say that. I would say from the time I was in my late 20′s I started noticing that my skin began changing and I started noticing these lines around the corners of my nose that extended all the way down towards my chin. What I had discovered was the early beginnings of marionette lines.

Well, these lines are very common among many of the mature folk alike, and until now the only way to help decrease their appearance was through plastic surgery; lifting and stretching the skin. Unfortunately, this is extremely expensive and not very natural looking.

In today’s high tech skin care industry there are now products designed to help with these types of deep lines. Some of these products can be purchased online. Many of these could be considered to be the best filler for marionette lines.

Deep Wrinkle Cream
One best filler for marionette lines, are products called wrinkle filler Creams. Now these products will not make wrinkles completely disappear, but they do help diminish them quite a bit and make them look less prominent. Many of these contain vitamins and nutrients to help with giving the skin added moisture and the healthy glow everyone desires. However, the best and newest ones contain hyaluronic acid. This substance is a magnet for water – it holds hundreds of times its own weight in H20 – so when it’s used on these lines, it can help minimize their appearance by causing these indentations to expand and fill out.

The Juvederm Procedure
When it comes to injectables, this one is my favorite.  This treatment appears to be one of if not the favorites among those who receive injections to treat wrinkles. It does not use foreign collagen, which is a dangerous ingredient when it’s derived from cows and pigs (mad cow disease, anyone?) Instead, Juvederm uses an ingredient that is plant derived source of a substance which is already found in you skin – hyaluronic acid. This, along with your own collagen and elastin, are the basic building blocks of your skin. But as you age your body produces less of it. So I look at as a  way to put back what nature is no longer giving me! They say it lasts around 6 to 9 months, but I have some injected in my chin area, and much of it is still there over 2 years later, no joke! So although it costs a few hundred, it’s definitely worth it in my opinion.

Restylane Treatments
This is basically the exact same as Juvederm, it’s just a different brand name that came out first. So either one should do the job. Restylane is a very popular choice to fill in those marionette lines and helps them look a lot less noticeable. Most doctors charge slightly less for this procedure than they do for Juvederm, so it may be a great option if you’re on a budget.

What To Do Next
Hopefully I have provided adequate information about what are marionette lines, so you can get a better idea of what they are and what type of procedure you can think about receiving to help diminish these marionette lines on the face. I am not a licensed dermatologist or medical professional by any means. So please make sure to consult a professional prior to receiving this or any type of treatment, especially in regards to treating wrinkles or marionette lines on the face.

The best part is that all of the options I have mentioned (Restylane, Juvederm, deep wrinkle cream) give you extremely natural results and they are all relatively affordable. So if you’re considering the first two procedures, talk with a doctor!
