Marionette & Smile Lines

Skin surrounding the mouth area creases to accommodate the mouth’s recurrent movements and over time, these lines become permanent. Lines that extend from the nose to each corner of the mouth and even towards the chin are caused by years of laughing, smiling. Fine grooves can appear along the upper lip due to pursing the lips or smoking.

Fillers are a popular option for reducing creases around the mouth.
