As we age, we may notice the appearance of wrinkles and lines on our faces that can make us look older and more tired. Two such lines that commonly appear are laugh lines and marionette lines.

Laugh lines, also known as nasolabial lines, are creases that extend from the sides of the nose down to the corners of the mouth. They are called laugh lines because they often become more pronounced when we smile or laugh.

Marionette lines, on the other hand, are wrinkles that form from the corners of the mouth downwards towards the chin, causing a downturned appearance and an overall melancholic look. These lines get their name from the similarity to the lines that appear on a marionette puppet’s face.

Age is a common factor in the emergence of both laugh and marionette lines. As we get older, our skin naturally loses elasticity and volume, making it more prone to wrinkles and lines. Additionally, the repetitive facial movements we make, such as smiling, frowning, and squinting, can also contribute to the formation of these lines over time.

In some cases, the appearance of laugh and marionette lines can also be a result of volume loss in the midface and cheeks. This can cause the face to sag downwards, leading to the formation of these lines.

Fortunately, there are a variety of treatments available to help reduce the appearance of laugh and marionette lines. One popular option is the use of dermal fillers, which can help to restore lost volume in the face and create a more youthful appearance.

During the consultation, our pharmacist will evaluate your face and suggest the most suitable approach tailored to your individual needs. For cases where volume loss is minimal, injectable fillers can be directly administered into the folds to reduce the depth of the nasolabial and marionette lines, resulting in a smoother, more youthful appearance.

As with any medical procedure, there are potential side effects to be aware of when treating laugh and marionette lines with dermal fillers. These can include redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection site. However, these side effects are usually temporary and should subside within a few days.

It’s important to choose a qualified and experienced practitioner to administer your dermal fillers to reduce the risk of complications. Our pharmacist at DermaPharm Aesthetics is highly trained and has years of experience helping patients achieve their desired results safely and effectively.
