Treating Marionette Lines

The Center for Cosmetic Surgery

marionette linesFor a relatively small area of the face, the chin can bear more than its share of the effects of the passing years. “Marionette lines” are one of those effects, one with a name that’s as unappealing as it is descriptive. Who wants to have deep vertical chin lines that make them look like a puppet? No thanks!

Marionette lines, like nasolabial folds, are one of the normal consequences of skin that eventually sags. As your skin ages, it naturally loses collagen and elastin. This process causes the tissues underlying surface skin to sink and show that hollowed out look. Surface skin, itself suffering environmental damage our area’s western climate, loses tone and elasticity and begins to slide downward, causing vertical and near vertical wrinkles. The lines that run from the corners of your mouth straight down have been aptly christened, “marionette lines.”

Keeping Your Chin Up

We can banish the puppet look and give you back a smooth, line-free chin using one of today’s safe and effective dermal fillers. In fact, our Denver facial rejuvenation specialists can take care of your wrinkles in one or just a few lunchtime appointments, returning you to your daily routine immediately.

Injectable fillers like JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, and Sculptra® have been created specifically to bolster the foundation tissues beneath your skin, letting your skin lie smooth and flat as it did a few years ago. These gel-like fillers are injected using tiny needles; most people report just a slight stinging sensation. The products are FDA-approved and contain no human or animal-derived substances. We offer several choices and we’ll determine which one will be best for you.

Another option for treating fine lines and wrinkles on the face is laser rejuvenation. This treatment uses a unique laser wavelength to treat both the outermost and deeper layers of the skin in just one or two treatment sessions.

Our aesthetic, nursing, and medical staff members at Rejuvenate! are directed by board-certified plastic surgeons. If you should discover you need a more lasting solution to your marionette lines, we’ll arrange a consultation with Dr. Wolfe or Dr. Vath so you can learn about today’s modern face lift and mini face lift procedures. If you’re not ready for surgery, we’ll be happy to get you started with dermal fillers. We strive for mutually rewarding, long-term relationships with our clients based on open communication and genuine respect; we have your best interests at heart.
