The Fountain of Youth: Exploring Marionette Lines Fillers

Marionette Lines Fillers

Collagen and elastin are the two essential proteins for skin volume, elasticity, and smoothness – but their production declines with age, resulting in visible signs such as fine lines and wrinkles.

Marionette lines, which are creases beneath the corners of the mouth extending to the jawline, usually caused by natural aging but can be accelerated by sun exposure and smoking. While these lines deepen with age and are irreversible, cosmetic treatments like dermal fillers offer effective solutions against them.

The leading aesthetician at Syra Aesthetics – Dr. Syra Hanif, specializes in non-invasive treatments, including dermal fillers that stimulates collagen production for long-lasting rejuvenation.

What are Marionette Lines?

Marionette lines, also called melomental folds, are the lines that appear from the corners of your mouth, all the way down to your chin. They are named after string puppets, since they look similar to the lines on puppet faces. These wrinkled lines on the surface of our skins can appear mild, moderate, or severe.

Difference Between Marionette Lines and Nasolabial Folds?

Marionette lines and nasolabial folds are in different spots on your face. Nasolabial folds are called smile lines and go from your nose to your mouth – whereas the marionette lines are formed below the smile lines.

Who Gets Marionette Lines?

As people get older, most of them will notice marionette lines appearing on their face. But some people might see these lines earlier or have them look more noticeable and deeper. For instance, people who smoke and don’t protect their skin from the sun could get marionette lines earlier or have them show up more prominently.

What Causes Marionette Lines?

The primary causes of marionette lines include:

  • Aging
  • Sun exposure
  • Facial expressions
  • Genetics
  • Smoking
  • Poor skincare habits

Marionette Line Filler?

Dermal fillers, like the ones made from hyaluronic acid, are often used to fix marionette lines. These are the lines from the mouth corners to the chin. By administering fillers into these lines, it makes the skin plumper and reduces the wrinkles.

This helps fill the sunken areas and make the skin smoother, making marionette lines less noticeable, along with making the face look younger and fresher. Some fillers also help the skin produce more collagen over time, which makes the skin more elastic and makes the results last longer.


Marionette lines are inevitable and we have to deal with them – however, now we have some very effective non-invasive treatments that can minimize or completely diminish the visibility of these lines. Consult with Dr. Syra Hanif for more details, at our premier med spa in NYC.
