Over time, deep wrinkles can form on either side of the chin extending vertically from the jawline up to the outer corners of the mouth. These have come to be known as ‘marionette lines’ due to their striking resemblance to the lines around the mouth of a marionette puppet, but they can leave you looking and feeling more like a dummy than a doll. They occur as a result of a combination of the natural ageing processes and the effects of constant muscle movement beneath the skin from years of laughter and smiles.
While these lines can represent a lifetime of happiness and memories for many people, others suffer a knock to their confidence as a result of this clear indication of premature ageing. At the Dr Rasha Clinic, Dr Rasha Rakhshani recommends hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers to volumise the skin from within for a more natural, youthful appearance.
