About the Treatment Marionette Lines Filler with Contour Clinics

Dermal filler is an effective treatment option for smoothing out deep-set creases and wrinkles.

Marionette lines are the creases running from the corner of the mouth to the chin, and are usually formed by gradual sagging of the skin in the lower face region. 

Filler can be expertly placed in this area to plump out the skin and therefore soften the severity of the lines, but it can also act to create tension in the skin and thereby provide a lifting effect. 

The goal is to create a softer, more youthfully plump look to the skin, and reduce the appearance of creasing and jowls caused by sagging skin in the lower face. 

Your dermal filler for marionette lines treatment can be performed by expert clinicians at any of our beautiful Contour Clinics locations across Sydney and Brisbane. 

An initial consultation is complimentary and we will use this appointment to provide a full facial assessment and determine how much filler will be required to achieve the effect you desire.

How Are Marionette Lines Treated?

If you’re noticing the formation of creasing and lines in the lower-face region or around the chin and mouth, you will likely benefit from injectables for marionette lines. 

The placement of dermal filler in this area is usually performed to noticeably alleviate the appearance of jowls, sagging skin and deep-set lines or folds caused by ageing. 

Why does this happen to our skin when we age?

Over time, collagen and elastin become depleted naturally, and we are therefore left with less of the stuff needed to make our skin soft, bouncy, plush and stretchy. 

When this happens, we experience skin laxity as a result, meaning that our skin won’t bounce back the way it used to, or defy the effects of gravity. Sagging of the skin is a natural occurrence but we can delay it happening further, as well as correct the existing effects. 

Sagging of facial skin can present an issue for people of all ages and genders, and can depend greatly on factors such as genetics and health/lifestyle. We see patients of all ages for this treatment, with many people finding these facial lines make them look older than they actually are.

By targeting and treating this area of concern, we can achieve a refreshed, more youthful effect to the overall facial aesthetic.

The Benefits of Marionette Lines Filler

There are multiple benefits of treating marionette lines with filler: 

  • Hyaluronic acid (HA) in dermal filler draws water to the treated area, resulting in a boost of hydration to the skin 
  • Hydrated skin is better armed to defend new wrinkles from forming 
  • Increased collagen in the skin which helps to add volume to the targeted area 
  • Overall lift of marionette lines in the most natural way possible 
  • Deep creases and permanent lines are ‘pushed’ out by the filler beneath, so their appearance is softened or even removed 
  • Skin looks smoother and tauter 
  • Restoring lost volume can provide a subtle lifting effect to the surrounding skin, which assists in avoiding the formation of marionette lines caused by drooping skin 
  • Minimal discomfort, downtime and side effects 
  • Non-invasive 
  • Immediate results 
  • Overall facial aesthetic looks younger and fresher

What to expect in your treatment: 

Your clinician will use numbing cream on the treatment area to ensure your ultimate comfort.

The filler is expertly and precisely placed in the exact points required to achieve the look you desire, with attention to creating a natural result.

Your clinician will use the correct quantity for softening the lines and restoring some tension to the skin for a lifting effect, without overfilling or causing an overdone effect. 

How Do Injectables for Marionette Lines Work?

Marionette lines appear due to loss of underlying facial fat and sagging of the mid facial tissues. 

Injectable filler for marionette lines works by replacing lost volume to the area so that sagging skin and deep lines appear naturally lifted and therefore smoother. 

Dermal fillers are made up of a sugar naturally present in your skin called hyaluronic acid. 

When hyaluronic acid dermal filler is placed in the marionette lines, the area is volumised and subtly lifted, which results in deep creases being naturally smoothed. 

The result is a refreshed youthful appearance to the cheek-and-chin region where marionette lines form.

Frequently Asked Questions

When will I see results of filler for marionette lines?

Results of dermal filler treatments are seen instantly.

However, the optimal and most natural-looking results will be seen within about two weeks.

This is when any potential swelling will have completely subsided, and the filler will have fully integrated in the surrounding tissues and settled perfectly into place.

How long does marionette filler last?

Depending on the type/consistency of product used, and the area being treated, dermal filler can last anywhere between six months to a year.

What are the risks of dermal fillers?

Dermal filler is made of hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that’s already naturally present in the skin. It is FDA and TGA approved and has been extensively studied with an excellent safety profile.

That said, dermal fillers are prescription-only products. Side effects are uncommon but can include temporary redness, mild itching and swelling. These issues usually resolve within 1-4 days.

As with any injectable treatment, very mild bruising can occur but often subsides quickly.

There are no data supporting the safety of dermal fillers during breastfeeding or pregnancy. Hence, we recommend not undergoing cosmetic injectable treatments while pregnant or breastfeeding.

Do marionette lines filler injections hurt?

At Contour Clinics, we pride ourselves on being the cosmetic injectable experts. Using the latest in injecting technique, filler injections performed by our practitioners are minimally uncomfortable.

Importantly, Contour Clinics only uses fillers with a built-in local anaesthetic, and we always use topical anaesthetic (numbing cream) on the area to be treated.

All patients are offered the option of happy gas (Entonox).

This all makes filler treatments at Contour Clinics some of the most comfortable available.
