Marionette lines Filler
Marionette lines filler is offered by our aesthetic and skin clinic in London because as we age, folds develop in our face including the nasolabial folds and the marionettes – they normally occur together. The lines by the mouth are called marionette lines and alongside a downturned lip can give the appearance of someone looking sad and tired.
Filler in this area can smooth out the crease and is often used to help to correct a down turned lip. It is often used as a package with either nasolabial folds fillers or correction of chin creases.

Marionette Lines Fillers, London – Crystal Palace
Marionette lines, also known as puppet lines, are fine wrinkles or lines that run from the corners of the mouth down to the chin. These lines are a natural sign of ageing, and they can make people look older and tired.
To address these concerns, our aesthetic clinic in London’s Crystal Palace offers marionette line filler injections, which can provide patients with a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance.
What are Marionette Lines?
Marionette lines are the lines that run from the corners of the mouth down to the chin. They are caused by a loss of collagen and volume in the cheeks, which can lead to sagging and a lack of support for the skin in this area. Genetics, weight loss, smoking, and the natural ageing process can all contribute to the development of marionette lines. We unfortunately have bone loss around the oral area as we age, which contribute to this.
What is a Marionette Lines Filler Treatment?
Marionette lines filler treatment is a non-surgical procedure that involves the injection of dermal fillers, such as Juvederm, Restylane, or Teoxane, into the affected areas to plump up the skin and add volume.
The fillers used in our London clinic are made of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body. Hyaluronic acid attracts water and is made of gel, and therefore provides structure as well as plumping the area.
The treatment can help clients to reduce the appearance of marionette lines and provide a more youthful, refreshed look without surgery.
How does the Procedure Work?
The procedure involves the injection of the dermal filler into the affected areas around the mouth and chin, using a fine needle or a cannula. The practitioner may use an anaesthetic cream or injection to reduce any pain or discomfort during the procedure.
The procedure takes around 30 minutes to complete and does not require any downtime.
What are the Results of the Treatment?
Patients can expect to see a reduction in the appearance of marionette lines, as well as an overall improvement in the skin’s volume and texture. The treatment can also help to address other signs of ageing, such as wrinkles around the mouth, nasolabial folds, tear troughs, and smile lines.
The results of the treatment can last up to 18 months, depending on the type of filler used and the patient’s individual response.
What are the Possible Side Effects?
The most common side effects of the treatment are redness, swelling, and bruising in the treated area. These side effects usually subside within a few days. In rare cases, patients may experience scarring or infection, but these risks can be reduced by choosing an experienced practitioner for the procedure. It is also important to follow the after care. Do not touch the area for 6-12 hours or wear make up. Most of your makeup will have some bacteria in it, and therefore you risk infection if you use it whilst the needle marks are still open.
Downtime and Aftercare
Marionette filler treatments typically have minimal downtime, with patients able to return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure. It is important however to avoid wearing cosmetic products like makeup for at least 6–12 hours after the injections. Do not touch the area, especially if you haven’t washed your hands – we carry a lot of germs on our hands.
No heat should be used for 48 hours and that includes drinking hot drinks as well as going into steam rooms or saunas. Heat can make the filler more malleable, and it can then move to places we don’t wish it to go. High intensity exercise should be avoided for the first 48 hours, and alcohol should also be avoided for 24 hours too, as these increase the risk of bruising and of course increases heat. It is important not to massage the area. If there are any small lumps at 2 weeks, please come back to clinic so that we can assess them. Massaging the area can move the filler to places we don’t want it to go. Always use sunscreen after having filler treatment and avoid UV light for 48 hours after treatment. Avoid unnecessary pressure over the area treated especially in the first 24 hours.
