(mouth to chin)
1ml Juvederm Ultra. From £200 (1ml)
Marionette lines are the lines that start from the corners of the mouth, and run downwards towards the jaw. They get their name from the marionette puppets, as the lines from under the mouth down to the chin resemble that of the mouth of a puppet — not the most flattering look! They can worsen with ageing, weight loss, and sun exposure, which can leave you looking sad, unhappy, tired or angry all the time. Filler helps to restore the lost volume to give you a happier appearance.
How does dermal filler help?
Marionette lines form due to loss of facial volume in the lower face. With ageing, this volume depletes, and deeper creases start to form below the mouth. Dermal filler for marionette lines can help to restore this lost volume and stimulate your own collagen production, reducing the appearance of those lower facial lines and folds around the mouth and leaving you looking refreshed and happier!
When will I see the effects?
Rejuvenation results from dermal filler in the crease lines from the mouth to the nose are seen instantly! There may be a slightly "fuller" appearance immediately after injection of the filler due to natural swelling, which resolves after a few days.
How long does nasolabial filler treatment last for?
Filler in the lower mouth folds region can last 6 to 18 months. The dermal filler s a non-permanent treatment, and can also be reversed/dissolved if needed.
Is it painful?
No. You may feel a pinprick sensation as the skin over the nose to mouth area is injected. We apply numbing cream beforehand to reduce the sensation and the filler is integrated with Lidocaine which provides additional conform and numbing properties.
How long is recovery time?
More or less immediate recovery —However. As a needle is used to inject dermal filler into the nasolabial region, there is a chance you may get a small amount of bleeding/bruising, which usually resolves after a few days. Full recovery is expected at 14 days.
