The Power Of Dermal Filler For Jowls And Marionette Lines

By Dr. Raquel Amado on the 25th October 2023

As the years pass by, we may find ourselves struggling with the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and lax skin, wondering if there’s a way to restore a more youthful look. Many patients who come to Dr Raquel with these concerns are recommended filler for jowls and marionette lines, which are two of the most commonly problematic areas of an ageing face. Let’s take a closer look at what happens to these areas as we age and how this particular treatment can be used to combat these effects.


Understanding The Ageing Process

As we age, the collagen and elastin levels that provide the foundations of healthy, youthful skin begin to decline, and the underlying structures, such as bone and fat, gradually diminish. It’s this subtle transformation that can lead to jowling – slight sagging along the jawline. When administered with precision, filler for jowls and marionette lines can completely rejuvenate your profile. The result? A contoured and youthful appearance with long-term results that harmonise with your natural beauty.


Marionette lines, also known as ‘puppet lines,’ are those vertical creases that extend from the corners of the mouth down to the chin. These lines can contribute to a downturned or sad appearance, adding years to your look. Dermal fillers can be an effective solution to soften and lift these lines, restoring a more youthful and cheerful facial expression.


A Closer Look At Filler For Jowls And Marionette Lines

The treatment is minimally invasive and is well-tolerated by most patients and generally requires minimal downtime. 


For correcting jowls, the best approach involves replacing volume loss on the cheeks, the lateral side of the face, and then the jawline. This approach results in a full face rejuvenation.


To correct marionette lines there are two possible approaches, a full face rejuvenation, as above, and/or placing dermal fillers directly into the lines.


Many individuals return to their regular activities right after the treatment.


As they integrate with your skin, fillers add volume and definition to the areas around the lower face while also hydrating the skin from within and promoting the production of new collagen and elastin fibres. Dermal fillers aren’t just about improving fine lines and wrinkles. These treatments can also address sunken cheeks, nasolabial folds, and other facial areas longing for a touch of rejuvenation.


After filler for jowls and marionette lines, patients can expect to see a noticeable improvement in the appearance of their lower face. The target areas appear smoother and more lifted, resulting in a refreshed and youthful look. Significant change can be seen immediately although final results might take up to 6 weeks, providing a boost in self-confidence. While individual experiences may vary, many patients enjoy the benefits of their treatment for several months, up to a year for jowls and 6 months for marionette lines.


Note that if you lose weight after your treatment, results will fade faster as you lose volume.
