Treating Marionette Lines is Easier Than You Think

Marionette lines—those noticeable creases that extend from the corners of the mouth to the chin—are one of the most common signs of aging and can easily contribute to RBF. 

Although not specifically associated with aging, marionette lines can also appear as a result of excess facial skin after losing weight. (When that weight was lost using semaglutide treatments, this is referred to as “Ozempic Face.”)

At Boho Chic Clinique, we have curated a selection of safe, advanced options to treat marionette lines, frown lines, smile lines, smoker’s lines, and more. Patients travel from across Illinois and even from Indiana and Missouri to visit our experienced providers!

Building a Treatment Plan

First and foremost, there are a few main factors we will help you consider as we build your treatment plan:

    1. Your schedule.
      How much time can you take off of work? Are you looking for a treatment that can be done over a lunch break or would you be able to take an extended break from social situations? While all of our treatments are minimally invasive, different marionette line treatments may require more downtime than others.
    2. Your budget.
      How often would you like to come back for maintenance treatments? How much money would you like to invest overall/annually in aesthetic treatments?
    3. The severity of your marionette lines.
      We will never recommend a treatment that won’t be effective for your unique needs. Depending on how advanced your concerns are, we will be honest with you about which techniques will work okay, better, or best.

Treatment Options for Marionette Lines

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are an excellent non-surgical treatment for marionette lines. These injectable gels, commonly derived from hyaluronic acid, provide immediate volume. 

By carefully injecting dermal fillers into the marionette lines, we can soften and reduce the creases in your skin and help restore a more youthful appearance.

Laser Resurfacing

Another effective treatment for marionette lines is laser resurfacing. These summer safe laser treatments use heat from targeted laser energy to remove the top layers of skin and to stimulate collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin. A few of our favorite laser treatments for marionette lines include:

Muscle Toning

Using Emface, we can gently heat the underlying skin and stimulate the small muscles of the face to help correct lines from the inside out.

A Combination Approach

In some cases, the best way to approach the treatment of marionette lines is to use a combination of the above techniques. 

By utilizing dermal fillers to restore volume, lasers to improve skin texture, and Emface to stimulate collagen and elastin production, we can provide significant reduction in the appearance of marionette lines!
