Marionette lines are facial wrinkles that occur with natural aging. The lines run vertically between the mouth and chin, which can also create sagging in the lower half of your face.
As early as your 20s, your skin starts losing elasticity as well as hydration, which increases your risk for fine lines and wrinkles. Long-term sun exposure, stress, and poor nutrition may also contribute to facial wrinkles by prematurely breaking down collagen and elastin.
Dermal fillers are injectables that can help treat marionette lines in their earlier stages. Fillers help plump your skin with hyaluronic acid. This is designed to mimic the effects of collagen and elastin to help smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
Hyaluronic acid dermal filler results in an immediate change, while poly-L-lactic takes several months to see results, as it’s a stimulatory filler that stimulates the production of collagen over time. See Sculptra for poly-L-lactic.
