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.
