Home » Marionette Lines

Marionette lines are a common concern for many people as they age. These lines run from the corners of the mouth down to the chin, resembling the lines on a marionette puppet, hence the name. They can make a person look sad or tired, even when they are not. Our Marionette lines treatment can help restore a more youthful and pleasant appearance, boosting confidence and self-esteem.

What Causes of Marionette Lines

What Are Marionette Lines?

Marionette lines are vertical wrinkles that appear at the corners of the mouth and extend downwards towards the chin.

These lines are a natural part of the aging process and are caused by a combination of factors, including the loss of skin elasticity and collagen, repeated facial expressions, and gravity.

While they are a normal sign of aging, many people seek treatments to reduce their appearance and achieve a more youthful look.

What Causes of Marionette Lines?

As we age, facial fat pads start to deflate and shift downward. Volume loss in the cheeks allows the nasolabial folds and marionette lines to deepen, as support structures weaken. The mouth corners also turn down unattractively.

Not only do these etched lines convey an unhappy or disapproving expression even when the face is at rest, but they also make one appear older than their actual age.



As we age, our skin loses collagen and elastin, two proteins that keep the skin firm and elastic. This loss leads to sagging skin and the formation of wrinkles.

The chemicals in cigarette smoke can damage collagen and elastin, leading to premature skin aging and the formation of wrinkles.


Sun Exposure

Ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun can break down collagen and elastin fibers in the skin, accelerating the aging process and contributing to the development of wrinkles.

Repetitive Facial Expressions

Over time, repeated movements and expressions can cause lines and wrinkles to form. Smiling, frowning, and other facial movements also contribute.



Your genetic makeup can influence how your skin ages and where wrinkles are likely to form.
