Downturned mouth

Marionette lines – or ‘melomental folds’ – appear at downturned mouth corners and run down towards your chin. They tend to deepen as you age, and can create a sad look. This is why reducing them with filler is a popular treatment that can produce significant improvement.

Our Expertise

At STORY we identify and treat the underlying cause of the cosmetic concern which ensures that we achieve long-lasting and natural-looking results.

The natural ageing process can produce these marionette lines due to loss of volume and deflation in the cheeks, jawline and mouth. Therefore, the best approach for minimising such lines is to reduce facial sagging with a Liquid Facelift, a signature treatment from STORY. This will not only improve the ‘sad mouth’ appearance but also the definition and shape of the face, creating the appearance of facial slimming and preventing the lines from deepening over time.

Minor lines that create a small downturn at the corners of the mouth can also be tackled directly with marionette line reduction treatment. This involves your STORY doctor carefully applying filler to smooth and soften these lines.

STORY clinics takes an holistic approach to treating your concerns, looking at the wider reasons why and how your facial features work in harmony for guaranteed results.
