Marionette lines are described as lines that run straight downward from the corners of the mouth that make you look unhappy.
Marionette lines form as facial volume begins to decrease and deeper creases begin to form below the mouth.
Depending on a person’s facial structure these lines can form with age or never become present. If you’re looking at lines just like these and want to address them then this Q and A from our Realself profile is just for you:
Improving Marionette lines with a lower facelift:
Marionette lines are the lines that extend from the corners of the mouth downward across the chin. A lower facelift is often the best option to improve this because it tightens the skin along the jawline which decreases the marionette lines, and often eliminates them. For some people, non-surgical anti aging options such as hyaluronic acid fillers may be able to improve marionette lines.
