Condition

Downturned Mouth

Marionette lines are aptly named due to their appearance being similar to that of a marionette puppet, and its characteristically ‘split jaw’. These lines run from the outer corners of the mouth, downwards towards the chin and are a common symptom of ageing. Many people who develop marionette lines will find they appear during middle-age, although the internal processes that lead to this condition will have usually begun quite some time before.

When this concern becomes noticeable, a person may often feel that their mouth also looks downturned and gives off a sad appearance - a look which doesn’t reflect their usual happy self.

Facial volume loss and changes in the overall texture and tone of the skin changes as a person gets older. This results in skin that becomes weakened in structure as fat, soft tissues and levels of collagen and elastin decrease. The effects of gravity have a central role in the development of marionette lines and a downturned mouth. A complexion that was once smooth and taut starts to experience sagging skin as gravity continues to pull.
As with other ageing related concerns, lifestyle choices such as: smoking, poor diet, alcohol consumption and overexposure to the sun, can have a negative impact on the ageing process and speed up its progression.

Light Touch Clinic can help to reduce the appearance of marionette lines and a downturned mouth through the application of treatments, including: facial fillers and wrinkle relaxing injections, filling the creases and lifting the corners of the mouth. A variety of skin tightening procedures are also available, as well as advanced skin care products and other therapies. Improving the quality of the skin can restore a youthful structure that not only makes you look happier, but feel happier too.
