Laugh & Marionette Lines

“Beauty Through Mastery” Serving Miami, Boca Raton, Florida and surrounding areas

Look years younger by correcting wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth.

Marionette lines are deep wrinkles that tend to stretch from the corners of the mouth down to the bottom of the chin and contribute to an aging appearance of the lower face. These laugh lines or nasolabial folds or marionette lines often give the appearance that we are older than we really are.
Because facial skin is able to stretch, loss of facial volume (primarily caused by loss of facial fat) is inevitable for men and women. Other factors that affects facial wrinkles includes:

  • Heredity
  • Sun
  • Environmental exposure
  • Lifestyle

Facial injectable fillers are an excellent non-surgical option to temporarily decrease the appearance of marionette lines.

WHAT TYPES OF FILLERS ARE RECOMMENDED AND HOW DO THEY WORK?

There are a variety of fillers used by The Institute of Aesthetic Medicine’s facial rejuvenation specialist. The type of filler recommended is dependent upon your age, the depth of the fold or wrinkle (medium to deep), and your aesthetic rejuvenation goal. These fillers are FDA-approved and are used to fill moderate to deep (severe) wrinkles. Dermal filler products are made from a smooth gel of hyaluronic acid (HA). This acid is a natural occurring substance in your body that delivers nutrients to your skin, which helps retain your skin’s moisture and adds volume.

Below is a summary of the injectable facial fillers that are available to temporarily rejuvenate your face without surgery. The appropriate filler for your facial renewal goals will be recommended.
