Down in the Mouth: Erasing Marionette Lines

May 17, 2018
While most of us probably enjoyed a Punch and Judy play as children, very few of us aspired to emulate the characters. But at least those two didn't have one of the worst facial concerns we humans mirror from many puppets: marionette lines.

Just as marionettes have distinct ridges where the puppeteer controls their mouths by wire, many of us develop prominent lines descending from the corners of our mouths. Whether we have a hereditary predisposition to inheriting these lines or have exacerbated natural aging with smoking, tanning, and poor diet, the result is the same: obvious loss of firmness and volume, accompanied by preventable wrinkles.

Yes, marionette lines are preventable. Preventative placement of dermal fillers can keep them at bay indefinitely. For lines that have already started to form or are firmly in place, SISU still has solutions.

Our approach is more natural than you might think. Dermal fillers, like the undiluted, pure Juvéderm used by our aesthetic doctors at SISU, are made of hyaluronic acid. This substance occurs naturally in our bodies, and can hold hundreds of times its weight in water - making it perfect for restoring volume.

You may have noticed an increase of skincare and cosmetics boasting hyaluronic acid as a key ingredient. But no topical application of this wonder substance can produce the results of placement by dermal filler: Sagging disappears, the downturned wrinkles of the mouth are eliminated, and volume is restored to those craggy areas we'd otherwise be stuck with for life.

In fact, the plumping, youth-restoring results of dermal fillers for marionette lines last from nine to 12 months on average. SISU's doctors ensure that repeat procedures are as painless and quick as your very first treatment.

In SISU clinics, our care differs from most other providers in many ways. One of the most important is that all of our clinical treatments are administered by top aesthetic doctors, not dentists or non-medical staff. Your face is always in safe hands with years of medical training and practice.

Another SISU difference is that we use only the gold standard in our treatments. Our doctors use a variety of the highest quality fillers to produce superb results for each patient. Everyone's face is different, and SISU never uses a 'one-size-fits-all' approach to creating the best look and feel for your appearance. Our doctors create bespoke patient pathways for every person who comes to our clinic. This aesthetic plan includes treatments specified for your individual needs, desires, unique facial anatomy and overall health.

If you're curious about how dermal fillers could significantly rejuvenate your appearance, book a free consultation with one of our doctors. Our highly-skilled aesthetic physicians will give you a personal assessment, tailoring any treatment to your unique facial anatomy and your desired results, explaining the treatment in full, and answering all of your questions.
