Smiling and laughing are a reflection of a happy, healthy life. However, these expressions can create permanent unwanted smile lines. If these wrinkles, lines and folds are beginning to bother you, Rainbird House has a non-surgical treatment to correct deep naso-labial folds and marionette lines.
Difference between Deep and Typical Naso-Labial Lines or Marionette Lines
Deep Naso-Labial Lines or Marionette Lines are due to a large amount of soft tissue lost directly in the area of the smile line. In such cases, deep smile lines can be treated with dermal fillers. Typical Naso-Labial Lines or Marionette Lines are not as deep and defined as Deep Naso-labial Lines are, but can still affect people’s confidence.
Solutions for Naso-labial Folds and Marionette Lines
Before we discuss treatments, let’s go over what deep naso-labial folds and marionette lines are and how they develop.
Naso-labial folds are deep lines that extend from the outer corners of the nose down to the outer corners of the mouth. Marionette lines are vertical lines that extend from the outer corners of the mouth down to the jawline on either side of the chin. Both are produced by:
• Repeated facial expressions
• Reduced production of collagen and elastin
• Age-related fat reduction in the face
With the right professional treatments, we can restore lost facial volume, improve youthfulness and skin health, and reduce the appearance of deep naso-labial folds and marionette lines.
For lines around the mouth, we use dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that restore lost volume in the face, stimulate collagen production, and draw moisture to the treatment area. This fills in the wrinkles and folds whilst enhancing skin texture and flexibility.
