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.
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 are 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
