Let us help you get rid of your marionette lines!

Do you look in the mirror and think to yourself, “why do the corners of my mouth make me look sad?”.

Age is the not the only factor that may cause you to have marionette lines, as smoking, genetics and sun damage also contribute to this.

There are a few preventative measures that can be taken to delay or even stop the developing the marionette lines.

The first of these measures is applying sun screen, and we recommend anything SPF 30 or higher. Furthermore, you can cosmeceuticals with clinically proven ingredients that stimulate the production of collagen and fight wrinkles such as Obagi.

Another non-invasive procedure to remove or even prevent the marionette lines would be dermal fillers and threads.

Let’s find out which is best for you!

Stay tuned to this month’s edition of the Dr Fern Mag, find out solutions available to target marionette lines and book your consultation to get rid of your sad look !

WHAT ARE MARIONETTE LINES ?

Marrionette lines run from the corners of the mouth, in most cases making the person look sad. So, why are they called ‘marionette’ lines? This is because they look like the lines that run along the face of a marionette. Symptoms of marionette line are dryness of the skin, loss in elasticity and firmness of the skin.

WHAT BEST FOR MARIONETTE LINES ? BOTOX OR FILLERS ? 

Once marionette lines begin to deepen, your face begins to appear heavier, with a saddened expression. The cause of marionette lines is the loss of soft tissue and structural support beneath the skin.

Whilst they have the tendency to make the skin sag, a solution to this problem can easily be applied! Since it is merely a problem regarding a loss of volume, the recommended treatment is dermal fillers, such as Juvederm and Teosyal.

Alongside dermal fillers, I often recommend Botox into the muscles that are pulling down the corner of the mouth. Although Botox will not do the job on its own, it is able to help the corners of the mouth take a more horizontal position.

WHERE TO INJECT  FILLERS TO SOLVE MARIONETTES LINES  ?

My approach for marionette lines differs according to the ageing stage involved.

My preference is to use fillers first: Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that restore lost volume in the face, stimulate collagen production, and attract moisture to the treatment area. This fills in the wrinkles and folds while improving skin texture and flexibility. They work by stiffening the upper part of the lip and adding bulk to the bottom corner to turn it upside down.

They are temporary but usually last around 6-9 months in that area, sometimes longer.

When a patient is young and their chin is fresh, I inject the filler using the MD codes Lp6 to inject deeply on the corner of the mouth to turn it from a downwards position to up.

It can be consolidated, if necessary, with an injection of Botox on the DAO (depressor anguli oris muscle). This is because when this muscle is strong, it has the tendency to bring the mouth down.

The risk of this method is that it can affect the smile in some people.  This is temporary and would require re-injection about every 3 months.

When the patient is a little older and starts to show signs of skin laxity and loss in definition of the lower Jaw, working on the cheeks first will uplift both the corner of the mouth as well as contribute to eliminate the sagging cheek.

This will bring a more natural result than just injecting in the corner of the mouth.

For much older patients with real sagging cheeks, threads combined with fillers is the best option. We need to be cautious not to overfill the cheeks with fillers. We want to achieve elegance. If we inflate the cheeks too much, the face will look too heavy!

There is not one way to consider solving marionette lines, it is the reason why a careful analysis of the face is necessary prior to inject to make sure the treatment plan decided is appropriate, to maintain a perfect balance for the entire face.

If you are wondering what would be the best option for you, what are you waiting for? Please call the practice. My assistants will be more than happy to help you book an appointment with me!

PDO THREADS FOR MARIONETTES LINES

Thread lifts are perfect alternatives for surgical face lifts. They are practically non-invasive and cheaper. Thread lifts for marionette lines are perfect and specifically target the jaw area.

The dissolvable sutures are injected under the skin, and once they dissolve they allow collagen to grow in their place, allowing you to see long lasting effects.

Dermica threads polydioxanone (PDO) are made from the same material as dissolvable stitches.

The threads are injected under the skin and give a structural template for the collagen to grow, helping to reduce the effects of lines and wrinkles on the face.

The threads should not be visible through the skin and is used in lower areas of the face for problems such as marionette lines, nasolabial folds and laugh lines.

So, if you are wondering if this is the right treatment for you, what are you waiting for? Please call the practice. My assistants will be more than happy to help you book an appointment with me!

PROFHILO – THE 16TH AESTHETIC & ANTI-AGING MEDICINE WORLD CONGRESS FEEDBACK

One if the newest types of facial fillers is Profhilo, used to tighten the skin and help re-model the tissue.

Profhilo is a complex hybrid consisting of hyaluronic acid (HA) of a high and low molecular weight. This anti-ageing treatment encourages the growth of collagen and skin elasticity, making it as unique as the bio-remodelling agent.

It has been clinically described to have a lifting and tightening effect on the skin.

Profhilo flows through the tissue activating a long lasting bio-remodelling procedure at an apparent level. This procedure can be used for tricky areas such as your neck and forehead. It excites me that I am able to help my clients with this massive advancement in the industry!

If you want to know more about it, call the practice. My assistants will be more than happy to help you book an appointment with me to find out if it is a procedure suitable for you!

Dr ARTHUR SWIFT – THE 16TH AESTHETIC & ANTI-AGING MEDICINE WORLD CONGRESS FEEDBACK

It has been a real pleasure to see Dr Mauricio de Maio again, the real star of this congress, with his MD codes analysis. He has now introduced 75 facial codes, which take into consideration key subunits within our facial units (such as the temples, forehead, eyes, cheeks, lips, chin and jawline).

By taking a more anatomical approach, as well as identifying the patients’ ageing concerns during the consultation process, the MD Codes enable a more analytical, strategic and uniform delivery of advanced injectable skills to help treat the causes of facial ageing.

The desired result is a healthy and refreshed look! Effects are similar to a good night’s sleep or holiday, and it’s not too dramatic of a change.

I was also very impressed by Dr Arthur Swift and his ageing curve concept which allows to solve sagging cheeks without injecting and inflating too much the cheeks of a patient, with an elegant and subtle result!

REAL BEAUTY COMES FROM THE INSIDE OUT

It is nice to take care of our skin, getting the last tips for a perfect make up but the most attractive person, sometime are not the most beautiful one !

They have this “ je ne sais quoi “ , an inner beauty and appear attractive in unique ways.Not by what they’re doing to take care of their appearance but by the radiant energy they give out.When beauty comes as much from within as without, it in turn magnifies their outer beauty.

let’s get inspired with some poems and take care of our soul !

Have you heard about Haikus ? I’m passionate about it !

Haiku is a form of poetry, first made popular in Japan, which has become appreciated

around the world. In Japan these poems are valued for their simplicity, openness, depth and lightness.

with only 3 sentences, haikus are incredibly modern. They embrace  perfectly our modernity with a  fast and short communication style while on the same time it invites us practicing to pause in the moment and cultivate a sense of awareness, compassion and peace.

Haikus are an instant photography of a moment or an emotion.

Let’s celebrate spring coming with an Haiku from Issa and an haiku from my personal creation:

REAL BEAUTY COMES FROM THE INSIDE OUT

“Blooming mountain

come out and play

Devil in me !”

Issa

REAL BEAUTY COMES FROM THE INSIDE OUT

“Un champ d’oliviers

Que peuvent-ils se raconter

à la tombée de la nuit

TEAR TROUGH : CANNULA VERSUS NEEDLE TO INJECT THIS AREA

The tear trough is usually referred as the dark shadow that lays beneath your eyes. An increasingly popular area that is treated with anti-ageing treatments, patients usually worry that injecting will cause pain and bruising.

However, here at TheLondonFacialCare, I use a cannula to inject the eye area rather than a needle. Cannula’s are not sharp like needles, making it the perfect tool to inject this sensitive area of the skin.

By using the cannula, bruising is kept to a minimum, which makes it more convenient, as several of my patients want to resume their work activities and other schedules straight afterwards.

It causes less pain than needles and requires less entry points than needles because they are longer. This provides a safer procedure as there is less risk of perforating a blood vessel.

Furthermore, I use the cannula to inject the tear trough as it is the safest method for injection, minimising your recovery time. However, I also use needles on certain filler treatments in there areas as they could provide better results in certain cases.

If you wish to find out more about the tear trough procedure, please call the practice. My assistants will be more than happy to help you book an appointment with me!

TEAR TROUGH, HOW TO TREAT THEM CORRECTLY ?

Tear trough, how to treat them correctly ?

When patients come to my practice wanting a solution regarding their tear trough, they usually expect to be injected straight in that area.

However, it is often the case that you can fix the tear trough by focusing on other aspects of the face. This is why we need to understand why the tear trough develops in the first place!

Tear troughs usually develop with ageing. As we get older, we lose facial volume in the surrounding area, and dark circles under the eyes are deepened because of the skin laxity. It can also occur due to our lifestyle, where excessive exposure to the sun and smoking causes the skin to lax prematurely.

As a result, our cheeks drift downwards and this accentuates our naso-labial folds. By focusing on fixing these areas affected by the sagging tendency of our skin, the tear trough can be better addressed by treating these areas.

Further treatments to support the periorbital area, the crows feet area or the submalar area should be considered first, in order to ensure a more natural and sustained look!

Here at TheLondonFacialCare, I make sure that my patients undergo a full facial assessment with pictures before they decide to inject or opt for treatment. This way, they can fully understand how to achieve a beautiful and natural result.

By working on the foundations of the face first, we can then proceed by contouring the face and make it more refined. And this is why it is the best way to treat the tear trough!

Don’t wait to find out how this technique could be beneficial to you. Call the practice, my assistant will be delighted to answer to the questions you may have and to book an appointment with me!

OBAGI TO GET RID OF TIRED LOOKING EYES AND DARK CIRCLES

Having dark circles and wrinkles really affects your overall look. These small setbacks are not signs of sicknesses, however when people see this they assume you are tired.
