The mouth and lips move constantly, creating dynamic creases around the nose and mouth. As your skin ages, it loses elasticity, and those creases can be etched as lines or wrinkles. Nasolabial folds or smile lines can appear around the nose, and marionette lines can form on the chin. Dr. Daniel Del Vecchio at Uptown Body Contouring is a board certified plastic surgeon who offers nasolabial fold and marionette lines treatment with non-surgical options at our clinic in Manhattan.
The marionette lines begin at the corner of the mouth and travel downward on the sides of the chin. They create the appearance of the puppet or marionette mouth, thus their name. The downward lines can create a permanent frown appearance when the mouth is at rest. Individuals with marionette lines look older and unhappy, even when they feel youthful and happy.
Marionette lines treatment can include a variety of procedures. RF microneedling is wonderful for tightening and rejuvenating the skin to smooth away lines. Facial filler injections can be used to plump under the lines and Botox® injections can relax the muscles to erase mouth corner lines. Dr. Del Vecchio can create a personalized treatment plan to rejuvenate the skin around the mouth to erase marionette lines using one or more treatments.
Nasolabial Folds Treatment
The nasolabial folds create the parenthesis around the nose and mouth, which may become etched in the skin as you age. While skin tightening treatments can help diminish these lines, facial filler injections are ideal. Adding volume into the folds can smooth these lines and create a more youthful appearance to the nose and mouth area.
Nasolabial folds and marionette lines can impact the youthfulness of the lower face. There are many non-surgical options to rejuvenate the face if you are not ready to explore a facelift at Uptown Body Contouring. We offer cosmetic injections and collagen induction therapies that can smooth away these lines and wrinkles.
