Marionette Line Treatments

Marionette Lines refer to the lines that form from the corners of the mouth into the jowls. The often occur because of volume loss around the corners of the mouth combined with increased laxity of the skin from the cheeks that occurs with age. Together, this effect creates a deep fold either side of the mouth that can be quite off-putting and give the appearance of ageing or looking tired. Dermal fillers can be used effectively in this area to reduce the volume loss and restore a more youthful appearance and give you back the confidence you had previously. Dr Hayder Ria has successfully performed thousands of treatments with dermal fillers with impressive and natural looking results. Treatment results with dermal filler are even comparable with those of surgery, but at a fraction of the cost and risk involved.

Why consider Marionette Line treatment?

Marionette lines are often one of the notable areas of volume loss on the face. It’s also highly responsive to treatment so it makes total sense to lift the area out with dermal fillers to restore the volume lost over time. The results are designed to look completely natural and most people looking at you wouldn’t have a clue that you had any treatment done in the first place. It’s also a great treatment area to consider when trying to reduce or prevent the appearance of jowls, which often form as a result of skin laxity in the cheek in combination with volume loss in the marionette lines. It’s a win-win!

Dermal filler is effectively a gel made of hyaluronic acid (which is contained naturally within the skin itself) which can restore the lost volume around the corners of the mouth and the marionette lines. Because dermal fillers are found naturally in the skin, rejection is almost unheard of and the filler usually integrates really well into the tissues- so much so that most people, including yourself, won’t be able to tell that it’s there.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Are The Benefits of a Marionette Line Treatment?
  • Marionette Lines are often a tell-tale sign of ageing. This makes it a priority target for treatment with dermal fillers if you want to restore lost volume and to give the face a natural-looking lift
  • Marionette lines are often considered the gateway to jowls- softening them can have a preventative effect on future jowl formation
  • The results look completely natural and most people won’t look like they had treatment by the time the treatment settles
  • The treatment usually takes around 20 minutes so it’s easy to fit in between other commitments
  • There is usually minimal downtime and you can usually resume your normal routine immediately after treatment.
  • Treatment of marionette lines with dermal fillers eliminates the need to subject yourself to the pain, costs and risks of invasive surgery. It’s significantly cheaper and much, much less risky
  • Results usually last around 12 months, sometimes longer

There’s no long-term commitment- in the event that you feel the treatment is not for you, the treatment can be completely reversed with dissolving or left to break down slowly over time. This is unlike surgery where the results are irreversible.

How do I know if Marionette Line Treatment is right for me?

The answer to this is quite simple- if you’re looking to restore lost volume around your mouth or to give your face a subtle lift or refresh at an affordable price, with minimal downtime and without the hassle or expense of surgery, then marionette line treatment using dermal fillers could be the right solution for you.

Will the results look natural?

Absolutely. Dr Ria is one of the most respected and experienced practitioners for dermal fillers in London with over 20,000 treatments performed successfully over the last 9 years. His focus is on enhancing your appearance in a way that doesn’t draw the wrong type of attention to yourself but rather subtly enhances what you already have or restores what you might have lost in volume over the years.

Is Marionette Line treatment painful?

Weirdly, no! Most clinics use minimal anaesthetic but Dr Ria’s experience with the procedure has led him to invest in more effective anaesthetic techniques including anaesthetic injections to thoroughly numb the area before treatment. A topical anaesthetic will also be applied to help numb the target area. Dr Ria usually uses a combination of injection techniques which are often only mildly uncomfortable and most people tolerate the procedure without any issue and minimal pain.

What should I expect on the day?

Dr Ria would usually welcome you and start with a detailed consultation. This would include discussing any previous treatments you’ve had, what your understanding of the treatment is and exploring your goals and expectations. He will also discuss the nature of the injecting procedure and related risks. If you are agreeable, Dr Ria will then usually conduct the treatment by first taking a pre-treatment photo and then applying topical anaesthetic while you complete the necessary medical and consent forms. After the treatment is complete, the treatment area is massaged and cleaned and then a post-treatment photo is usually taken for comparison purposes. Dr Ria will then explain any relevant aftercare and offer you information on how to contact him for questions or any follow-up you might require. Dr Ria is always contactable directly by his clients for any clinical queries by email (***hyperlink this to open an email)***)

What should I expect afterwards?

There will usually be some redness and swelling in the injected areas. Usually this is mild/minimal but can vary from person to person and depending on the amount of work conducted during treatment. It’s usually easy to mask using cosmetics and often doesn’t last for more than a few days

Are there any precautions I should take beforehand or afterwards?

We usually advise that you refrain from drinking any alcohol for 48 hours before your treatment as this could increase your chances of bruising. Other than that, there’s not much you need to do in preparation for the treatment. We do not advise stopping any medication before your treatment.

Is there any follow-up after the procedure?

We don’t routinely follow up everyone after their treatment. However, in certain cases some people will need more treatment and they would usually be encouraged to come for a top-up or ‘second stage’ treatment (which comes with a charge). However, if you ever feel the need to be reviewed after your treatment for whatever reason then Dr Ria is always happy to offer this free of charge.
