What Are Marionette Lines?

Marionette lines are the pronounced crease that runs from the corners of the mouth to down along the chin. It can also refer to nasolabial folds occurring around the top of the mouth.

What Causes Marionette Lines?

As collagen in the face decreases with age, skin tends to crease and fold around the mouth. While not everyone experiences marionette lines, they can be quite bothersome for those who do, as they can give the face an unhappy expression.

How to Prevent Marionette Lines

It is believed that genetics play a large role in whether or not you develop marionette lines. But there are certain things that can serve to exacerbate the issue, like too much sun exposure, smoking and poor diet.

Effective Ingredients to Combat Marionette Lines

As there is no certain way to prevent marionette lines, the best defense is to take good care of skin and protect it from excessive sun exposure.

However, when it comes to rebuilding lost collagen and elastin, effective ingredients include copper peptides, Syn-Coll, Matrixyl, Syn-tacks, Tripeptide 1 and vitamin C.

Solutions for Marionette Lines

The marionette lines are a common location for filler injections. However, there are ways to improve the appearance of these lines without resorting to needles. Consistent LED treatment is the most effective way to plump the area, reducing the appearance of creasing. However, there are also topical solutions that can provide help with long-term use.
