Nasolabial folds & Marionette lines

Smiling and laughing is healthy for the heart and soul and reflects a life well-lived. Unfortunately, with age, these expressions create permanent unwanted smile lines.

If these wrinkles, and folds are beginning to bother you, Dr Mittal at the Hunar Clinic has plenty of experience in non-surgical treatments to correct them.

Nasolabial folds are the lines that go from the outer corners of the nose down to the outer corners of the mouth.

“Marionette lines” are those lines that start at the corners of the mouth and extend down to the chin. These creases get their name from puppets called marionettes and the lines that make the puppets’ mouths open and close. The appearance of marionette lines develop with age and depend on facial structure and anatomy and as such some people never get them.

The major difference between regular wrinkles and marionette lines is that marionette lines can change a person’s facial expression and sometimes make them look mad or unhappy when they’re not.

Nasolabial folds and marionette lines can be caused by:

  • repeated facial expressions
  • reduced production of collagen and elastin
  • age-related fat reduction in the face

With the the use of dermal fillers, Dr Mittal can reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds and marionette lines, restore lost facial volume, improve skin health giving a more youthful and fresher appearance.

Dr Mittal will choose the best filler or combination of fillers based on how deep your wrinkles are, your expected results, medical history, and other factors.
