The lines that run straight downwards from the corners of your mouth are called marionette lines. Looking in a mirror you may find these lines give your face an unhappy, severe and dissatisfied expression. They make you look much older than you feel. They are caused by a loss of firmness in the skin surrounding the corners of the mouth, giving free space to the forces of gravity.
The perfect way to smooth these lines is to use an appropriate dermal filler. Depending on the depth of the lines your physician will use a thin or slightly thicker gel. If your lines are relatively deep he may need to treat you more than once. During the actual treatment the gel is injected just under the skin, giving your face a smoother, friendlier expression. This will only take a few minutes, but the result will last for 12 to 18 months.
We often notice that the corners of the mouth are actually pulled down too. If this is the case, we recommend to lift them slightly and also lift the entire mouth as well as the surrounding area.
