The marionette lines are treated with ha dermal filler injections during an office visit lasting under an hour. Several types of injectable filler products are commonly used for marionette lines. By far, the most common is non-permanent because its effects are temporary and can be easily reversed.
Your practitioner will recommend the type and brand of filler that’s best for you.
First, a topical anaesthetic cream may be applied, or it may be included with the filler material when injected. Then, multiple small injections are delivered through a thin needle. These injections are placed at sites in and surrounding the crease of the marionette lines on either side of your mouth.
Immediately after this injection process, patients can leave the office and return to work. There is no required recovery period, and no bandages need to be worn. These factors have made marionette line treatment a popular “lunchtime” treatment for those looking for a fast treatment with immediately visible results.
The effects of marionette line injections remain visible for 6-12 months. Eventually, the body absorbs the injected dermal filler, and the lines will reappear. Many patients opt to undergo regular injections to maintain their smooth appearance.
