Marionette Lines Treatment

Gravity, your muscles and loss of skin and fat volume as you age, are all working against you to create the lines that extend from the corners of your mouth down to your jawline. These lines are commonly called marionette lines. Over time, gravity takes its toll on all areas of your body, including your face. The depressor muscles in the lower part of your face cause the corners of your mouth to turn down. As we age, skin gets thinner and loses volume as collagen breaks down, and bone and muscle also lose volume, making wrinkles and skin folds more prominent.

Dermal fillers have traditionally been used to reverse these signs of aging as the appropriate application of filler will plump up the area where marionette lines are visible and smooth them out, eliminating or minimizing the folds. Fillers can be a cost-effective alternative to getting a face lift to solve the problem but at Creative Facial Aesthetics we also treat marionette lines with Nova Threads as Nova Threads present a better alternative to fillers for many patients.

Eliminate Marionette Lines With Nova Threads

Getting a facelift will definitely remove your marionette lines but a facelift is an expensive procedure that requires a fair amount of time for recovery and healing. Since a facelift is not for everyone and fillers may not be your best treatment option, treating your marionette lines with Nova Threads may produce the best cosmetic result for you as Nova Threads offer patients longer lasting results than fillers and the procedure is very straightforward.

With Nova Threads the corner of the mouth can be lifted and the marionette region softened which will add youthfulness to the mouth region. This procedure is quick and can diminish the dreaded “puppet” lines that come with age. We will discuss whether or not Nova Threads are your best treatment option during your consultation.

At Creative Facial Aesthetics, Michele Rivard, PA and Dr. Khosh have the knowledge and experience to provide you with options for eliminating or minimizing your marionette lines. Contact our office today to schedule a consultation appointment.

I've been to Michele for a numbers of years for various procedures and she's fantastic, a true artist. Michele never pushes procedures, always takes her time and the final results are superb. I'm in the entertainment industry and need to look my best. I'm thrilled that she's now moved offices and I was able to track her down, I wouldn't trust my face to anyone else. My advice, put yourself in her hands and trust and you'll be amazed at the results: not only is her work exceptional but very natural.

I have gone to Michele for more than 10 years, following her to her new location. It's so long ago but I think I heard of her expertise in a magazine article or blog. I trust Michele completely and have done botox and filler on many occasions during this time, The results are always perfect, so natural.

As someone who was very hesitant to try Botox, as I am a performer/dancer and expression is a huge part of my career, I could not be happier with the treatments I have received from Michele! I have gotten so many "You look so young!" and "You skin looks incredible!". Michele took her time to explain to me the benefits of different treatments and was very responsive to my concerns. I have recommended friends to her who are so grateful to me! As a person who came to aesthetic medicine through an incredible journey of her own, Michele is unparalleled in her compassion, skill and knowledge. Go see her! You will be in the BEST hands!

Michele Rivard is the best I have had for my injections of botox and fillers. She is meticulous, exact and knows what needs to be done to make my face be the best it can be. I highly recommend her for whatever you want done and you will be happy with the results.

Meredith G.

Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!

Jackie C.

Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

Kaitlin M.

Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Leah G.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
