Marionette lines are the vertical facial lines that extend downward from the corners of a person’s mouth. These age lines can make a person look sad and depressed, negatively affecting the appearance of their otherwise-beautiful smile. They can also make a person look much older.
These harsh wrinkles are formed as the facial volume begins to deplete. Some of the causes of marionette lines are genetics, losing moisture in the skin due to aging, and excessive exposure to sunlight. Stress is also said to play a major role in their appearance.
Happily, getting rid of marionette lines has become incredibly easy, all thanks to convenient and simple Juvederm treatments!
What Is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a popular injectable dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the human body, attracts and bonds with water molecules in the skin tissues to hydrate the tissues. This serves to add volume to the region, making it look overall healthier and smoother.
Hyaluronic acid is synthesized in the laboratory using a biosynthesis process in order to manufacture Juvederm. Because hyaluronic acid is a substance found in the body, it is biocompatible and has a very low risk of allergic reactions.
Usage of Juvederm
To begin, the area where the Juvederm will be injected is cleaned thoroughly. A certain volume of Juvederm is taken in an injection as per the requirements of the patient. It then has to be injected where the marionette lines are formed.
Juvederm will be injected either to the mid or deep dermis in order to correct moderate to severe marionette lines.* Other mild facial wrinkles and age lines can be addressed by injecting into the upper dermis.
When the product is injected into the soft tissue, the folds, lines, and wrinkles are treated as the gel fills the space beneath them.* This creates a smoother and younger-looking appearance for the skin.*
After the use of Juvederm, the patient is advised not to perform any strenuous physical tasks for a short time. Going out in the sun should be avoided for a few days. Women who are either pregnant or nursing are advised against the usage of Juvederm.
Advantages of Using Juvederm
Juvederm usage is a great way of getting rid of marionette lines and bringing back the beautiful smile that one previously had. It has many benefits:
• As Juvederm is a natural substance found in our body, there is no allergic reaction in most cases.*
• Juvederm is more effective than most other fillers.*
• Juvederm can be used to treat facial wrinkles and lines.*
