Over time, marionette lines start to become more defined in our profiles. These lines will continue to become more visible and established the older we age due to a progressive loss of facial volume. Marionette lines are vertical lines that form on either side of the chin and extend towards the mouth. These marks can make a person appear older than they actually are or even angry or upset. Gertsberg Aesthetics in Brooklyn can help erase marionette lines using Botox to restore a younger-looking appearance.
What Causes Marionette Lines
Natural aging along with sun exposure, environmental exposure, and genetics all contribute to the formation of marionette lines. As we age, the skin loses moisture and elasticity, which causes lines to form and become more noticeable. Being in the habit of pursing your lips can also result in more defined marionette lines.
How We Address Marionette Lines
One of the most renowned names in aesthetic medicine, Botox is a highly effective means of softening the appearance of marionette lines. This non-invasive and safe treatment is trusted by medical professionals across the globe and helps millions of people achieve younger-looking skin annually. During a Botox treatment session, a member of our team will administer the Botox formula through a very fine needle into the muscles around the mouth and chin. Over the following few days, muscle activity in the treated area is reducing, causing the skin to gradually smoothen.
Results from Botox
Many people have seen amazing results within several days of their appointment that have lasted up to 4 months. Our team can customize a Botox treatment plan to best accommodate your distinctive aesthetic goals.
