At Pearl, we provide non-surgical treatment options, including marionette lines filler,  HIFU skin tightening, PDO threads and barbed thread lift for marionette lines. In addition, our Doctors offer a free assessment to discuss your marionette lines treatment options.

How do Marionette Lines Develop?

Marionette lines are also known as a ‘mouth frown’ because the edges of the mouth are flipped upside down, giving your face a sad or depressed appearance. So how do these form? The marionette line occurs from a cumulative effect of time on your face’s skin and soft tissue. The two factors responsible for marionette lines are increased skin laxity and redistribution of facial fat down the face under the influence of gravity. The facial fat pads fold at the marionette line because a connective tissue band attaches skin to bone at this point. To lessen the appearance of the jowl, we need to fill the area of the deficit and address tissue laxity and facial fat redistribution. A combination of modalities is complementary as each works differently.

Marionette Lines Treatment Modalities

  1. Replace the volume in the chin and under the lips to plump out the fold using marionette lines filler. Marionette line filler treatments not only replace lost volume but also serve to conceal flaws visually.
  2. Lifting techniques to reposition the fat pads and skin back from where they descended – PDO thread lift for marionette lines.
  3. Skin tightening to address skin laxity – such as RF skin tightening.
  4. SMAS tightening – using HIFU facial treatment or surgical lifting.
  5. Restoring the upwards flick of the lips is assisted with anti-wrinkle injections in the chin to relax the muscles pulling the sides of the mouth down.

Marionette Lines Filler

Dermal fillers may be all that is required in the early stages of marionette lines formation. The area immediately beneath the mouth and chin is treated to compensate for natural volume loss. A thick filler provides structural support, allowing the corners of the mouth to be flicked back up. Marionette lines filler is frequently used with anti-wrinkle injections, chin fillers, lip wrinkle, and jawline fillers. Ladies in good health with shallow marionette lines are the best candidates for marionette line filler. Alternatively, marionette lines filler is used as a complementary therapy for the treatment of deep marionette lines.

Marionette Lines Filler – Procedure

At the outset, we offer a free consultation with one of our doctors. During this consultation, they will determine the best treatment approach for you, go over your options, and decide whether or not you will need other therapies to supplement the marionette lines filler injections.

  • In the clinic, filler for marionette lines is performed in a quick half-hour procedure.
  • The filler contains local anaesthetic, and topical or local anaesthetic may be used to ensure comfort.

Marionette Lines Filler – Results and Recovery.

  • The results are immediate; however, the filler continues to settle up to 6 weeks.
  • There is no downtime, and you can immediately resume your normal activities.
  • Bruising, swelling, and redness are the most common side effects.
  • Depending on the marionette lines filler used, the results last up to 18 months.

Treatments to Compliment Marionette Lines Filler

    • Chin fillers are used to fill in dimples and chin creases.
    • Jawline fillers are used to lift the jowls and define the jawline.
    • Lip fillers are used to fill in wrinkles on the lips or plump lips.
    • Fillers in the cheeks to lift the midface.

Alternates to Marionette Lines Filler

Marionette lines filler is not the only treatment option. Skin tightening, PDO mono or barbed threads, and facelifting are alternative marionette line treatments. Lastly, all marionette lines treatment can be combined with laser skin tightening to completely rejuvenate the lower face and neck area. When would these be preferable to marionette lines filler? What are the distinctions between the treatments?

Treatment for Deep Marionette Lines Deep marionette lines necessitate more advanced lifting or tightening techniques. A surgical facelift or a marionette line thread lift are two options.

Thread Lift for Marionette Lines

There are two types of thread lift procedures for marionette lines. The first is PDO threads, and the second is lifting threads such as barbed PDO threads.

PDO Threads for Marionette Lines.

Mono PDO threads are the most recent aesthetic service, involving the placement of multiple (60-100) tiny (3-5 cm long) threads in the lower face to rejuvenate it. PDO threads are best used for skin laxity and as a skin tightening treatment.  PDO Threads for marionette lines stimulates collagen, tighten the skin and provide a modest volume replacement, and any lifting effect you get from PDO threads is a bonus.

Barbed Thread Lift for Marionette Lines

A barbed thread lift for marionette lines, on the other hand, employs long (15cm) threads placed in vectors to lift and reposition tissue. Depending on the thread used, a barbed thread lift can be used for mild to moderate marionette line laxity and can provide 1- 2 years of improvement. A MINT thread lift is a non-surgical approach to treat the marionette lines by pulling the fat and lax skin back into position.  Once again, even thread lifts for marionette lines are often combined with chin filler.

Surgery for Marionette Lines

Deep marionette lines necessitate surgical intervention to restore the contour of the lower face and neck. This can be combined with other therapeutic procedures such as a facelift or neck lift to improve the appearance of marionette lines. Once the laxity of the face has progressed, surgical marionette lines treatment is recommended. Jowls, cheek sagging, loss of jawline definition, and marionette lines will be present in these cases. 

 Marionette Lines Treatment with Skin Tightening

Skin tightening with HIFU, laser, or RF skin tightening lifts the lower face. The tightening effect reduces the visibility of marionette lines, jowls, and cheek lines. Skin tightening also works well with marionette fillers and PDO threads for marionette lines.

Let's Sum It Up Marionette Lines Treatment Options

At Pearl, we provide a few non-surgical treatment options, including filler,  HIFU skin tightening PDO threads and barbed thread lift for marionette lines.

  • In the clinic, filler for marionette lines is performed in a quick half-hour procedure.
  • Marionette lines filler plumps under the mouth to restore a younger appearance.
  • Mono PDO threads or barbed PDO threads can be used for thread lifts on marionette lines.
  • Treat moderate laxity with thread lifts.
  • Treat Advanced laxity with a facelift.  Surgery produces the most dramatic results. However, potential surgical outcomes are weighed against the associated downtime and risk.
  • Another non-surgical option for early marionette lines is non-surgical skin tightening. Ultherapy, laser, and radiofrequency devices are among the skin tightening treatments available.
  • Skin tightening can be used in conjunction with fillers to achieve the best results.
