Also known as puppet lines!
Hanging corners of the mouth, also known as marionette lines, can occur as a result of skin aging and sagging. These folds run from the corners of the mouth down toward the jawline. The unpleasant aspect of these lines is that they distort your resting facial expression and can give a sad, gloomy or even angry impression. Fortunately, these lines can be effectively treated with fillers. With just a few injections, we can fill these grooves, preserving your friendly and rested appearance.

In filler treatment, the desired shape and contour is created by creatively handling volume restoration. The goal is skin firming and skin rejuvenation. During the intake consultation, the doctor assesses your marionette lines, depth of lines and skin texture to suggest a treatment plan. Accentuating your natural appearance is the starting point here. If you are satisfied with the treatment plan, the first step is to take some preliminary photographs and you will be asked to fill out a health statement and consent form. After that, treatment can begin immediately. After a series of injections, the filler is injected under the skin in the exactly right place, restoring natural volume almost immediately and causing the grooves to fade or disappear completely.
