When you look into the mirror, does your face still reflect who you are? We can all remember the days when our fresh young faces just lit up the room with their glowing complexions. But once we start moving past a certain age, that light can turn into lines that pull the mouth into a frown and leave us looking a bit old and cranky. It’s not generally a popular look. What brings those deep lines around your mouth? Can they be eliminated?
Some Lines May Be Inevitable
As we age, we lose the fat beneath our skin and unfortunately, that means more than just weight loss. We also lose the elasticity in our skin, so the skin is not as resilient. The lines and wrinkles start to show, adding years to the face. Those deep lines that form at the corners of your mouth and run down into the chin area are known as “marionette lines.” And yes, they could be inevitable. But the answer is closer than you think.
Are you ready to rewind the clock, so your resting face looks young and peaceful like you remember? The good news is, marionette lines can be significantly reduced and possibly eliminated with the hand of a skilled, qualified facial plastic surgeon.
How Can Marionette Lines Be Removed?
There are a few different options that can relieve those lines and take away those false years. Dermal fillers can be an excellent option when the lines first appear. Fillers are a short-term fix, but it is a simple procedure with no surgery.
Another non-surgical option for filling the marionette lines are injectable solutions. These injections offer another non-invasive, temporary solution to these lines with no downtime. You have a fast, easy fix and feel younger in minutes.
If you’ve decided it’s time for a little more permanent fix, then a mini facelift, right around the mouth and nose, could be the right answer for you. Dr. Khosh is a highly credentialed plastic surgeon who specializes in faces. He provides each patient with the sensitive, individual care you need with a plan of action that’s perfect for you.
