Marionette lines

As we age, it is natural that your facial skin and muscle loose collagen and sag, creating 2 lines that run from the corners of your mouth to your chin (muppet mouth). Unfortunately, these lines are very prominent and often lead others to unconciously think that you are a sad or angry person.

Apart from ageing, other factors can also contribute to having marionette lines, such as genetics, sun damage and smoking. The appearance of marionette lines can be delayed by taking a few preventive measures. First, it is very important to protect your skin from sun damage by applying sunscreen cream daily, especially ones with SPF 30 or greater. Secondly, using cosmeceuticals with clinically proven ingredients will stimulate natural collagen production, tighten you skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

At Vanity Clinic, you will have a free consultation to choose from the many non surgical solutions that tackle differents facets of marionette lines.

 

Thread lift

Using specialised surgical threads, your marionette lines can be lifted in a 30 minute procedure with practically no downtime. After the procedure, there will be only a few injection marks that should disappear in a few days. Results last an average 1 year with PDO threads, and 2 years with the new PCL threads. Vanity Aesthetics is one of a few providers of PCL thread lift in the UK.

Dermal filler

Treatment involves injecting a medically developed solution under the skin with a fine needle. Precisely placed on your jawline and chin by a medical practitioner, dermal filler can also minimize marionette lines. Results last up to 18 months.

Medical grade peel

When the upper layers of your skin are shed under the effect of chemical peel, your skin will be stimulated to create much more collagen and tighten, flattening all wrinkles on your skin. To achieve lifting effect and reduce marionette lines, it has to be a deep peel, requiring 10-14 days of downtime. The advantages are that the whole face skin become tighter and more radiant.
