Today we are going to talk about how to get rid of Marionette lines – those creases in our faces that extend from the corners of the mouth, down towards the chin, and which are a natural consequence of the ageing process. Although everybody gets them at some point in their life, they can have the undesired effect of making us look older and more tired than we actually are when they become very noticeable or form prematurely. Fortunately, there are several ways that you can try to reduce the appearance of these wrinkles, as we discuss in today’s article.

5 Non-Surgical Ways to Get Rid of Marionette Lines

If you want to get rid of marionette lines as quickly as possible, you may like to consider the following options. Some of them are more effective than others and some involve spending a considerable sum of money whilst others are relatively inexpensive.

  1. Retinoid Creams – The least expensive and easiest option is to visit your local beauty shop and invest in a few retinoid creams – creams that contain synthetic vitamin A derivatives and are designed to be applied directly to the face as part of your regular skincare regimen.
  2. Anti-Ageing Serums – In addition to retinoid creams, you are also sure to find a number of anti-ageing serums in your local stores, which contain antioxidants such as vitamin C and E, among other ingredients. These products are also designed to be applied directly to your face and can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, including marionette lines.
  3. Cosmetics – The fastest (but also the least permanent) way to reduce the appearance of marionette lines is to apply foundation and concealer to your face, followed by a setting powder.
  4. Moisturisers – Quality moisturisers may help to delay or reduce the appearance of marionette lines, especially when used as part of a comprehensive skincare routine. However, for those with more noticeable lines, the effects may be somewhat underwhelming.
  5. Dermal Fillers – Dermal fillers are probably the most effective and most dramatic way you can reduce the appearance of marionette lines, without resorting to invasive surgery. Injections of naturally occurring hyaluronic acid in strategic locations are fast, inexpensive and very safe.
