Turn that frown upside down
Marionette lines, also known as oral commissure lines, are the vertical lines or folds that form from the corners of the mouth to the chin. They are named after the marionette puppets that have similar lines running from the corners of the mouth to the chin.
Marionette lines can be caused by a combination of factors, including aging, genetics, and sun damage. As we age, the skin loses elasticity and volume, leading to the formation of wrinkles and folds. Additionally, repeated facial expressions such as frowning or smiling can contribute to the development of marionette lines over time.
Marionette lines can make the face appear sad or downturned, and they can be a source of self-consciousness for some people. Fortunately, with dermal fillers, these lines can be softened to achieve a more youthful appearance and boost self confidence.
How much does marionette line filler cost?
The cost of marionette line filler can depend on several factors depending on the desired result and how deep the lines are. Typically our injectors would start with a half syringe per side which ranges from $500-600. A conservative approach is best when using dermal fillers as more can be added later if desired.
Is nasolabial fold filler painful?
Marionette filler is an extremely tolerable procedure for most patients because of the use of a strong topical numbing cream and cannula. One single injection is made on each side and a cannula is used to gently fill the area. Most patients will experience slight pressure during the treatment.
After the procedure, it is common to experience some mild swelling, bruising, or tenderness in the treated area. This can typically be managed with over-the-counter pain medications and should resolve within a few days.
What is the downtime for marionette filler?
The downtime for marionette filler treatment is minimal, and most people can resume their normal activities immediately after the procedure. Patients may experience some swelling, bruising, and tenderness in the treated area for a few days after the procedure but for most, it is very tolerable.
Applying ice packs to the treated area and keeping your head elevated can help reduce swelling and discomfort. You may also use an over the counter pain medication if necessary.
It's also important to avoid strenuous physical activity and exposure to direct sunlight or heat for at least 24-48 hours after the procedure. As with any injection treatments, avoid the use of a sauna or steam room for at least 72 hours after the procedure.
