One of the most dreaded signs of aging is the appearance of marionette lines. These lines refer to the creases which form near the corners of your lips, extending down to your chin, making you appear grim and scornful. Dr. Steven Wallach is a Manhattan board-certified plastic surgeon offering a wide array of Manhattan facial fillers to fight marionette lines.
How Marionette Lines Develop
The development of marionette lines is heavily attributed to the gradual loss of collagen brought about by aging. While some people do not develop such creases, majority of the population are genetically inclined to have marionette lines while they aged. Other factors which could contribute to its appearance include smoking, diet, overexposure to the sun, and environmental conditions.

Perlane, on the other hand, is often used to treat moderate to severe wrinkles situated between the nose and lips. For deeper folds and wrinkles, Juvederm is preferred. It is also used in adding volume to the upper face.
