Marionette and Perioral Lines
The most common wrinkles treated are the perioral area which are lipstick lines and marionette lines using dermal fillers to plump up the areas around the mouth. Often the lips are non – surgically enhanced at the same time to add plumpness to an area that has diminished over time.
Perioral lines are more prevalent on the upper lips. The lines are a result of a loss of volume that occurs with age, along with repetitive bunching of the tissue from muscular activity. These lines can contribute to lipstick bleeding, hence the name ‘lipstick lines. Using dermal fillers will help with the puckered look, as well as diminishing the furrowed lines.
Marionette Lines are the area at the corner of the mouth where the upper lip meets the lower lip These lines may extend downward from the corners of the mouth, giving an individual an unnatural puppet or marionette-type appearance.
I had lip fillers done by Dr Mittal. As I am older now and gravity has taken over, the sides of my mouth/lips were lined and the corners drooped down and where I used to smoke many years leaving me with lines around my lips. I’m pleased to say The lovely Dr Mittal has changed all that and gave me back my youthful lips. The procedure was professional from start to finish and she made me feel at ease all the way through.
I will definitely go back when I need to. Avril Richards
