Does Anything Work Well for Marionette Lines?

I have terrible marionette lines and was told by a plastic surgeon that marionette lines are "tough". But he had no recommendations. Any suggestions??

Without a photo or face to face examination it is impossible to say what would be best in your case. Mild marionette lines may be treated effectively with a filler injection. More severe lines especially if accompanied by jowling are best treated by a facelift.

My response to your question/post does not represent formal medical advice or constitute a doctor patient relationship. You need to consult with i.e. personally see a board certified plastic surgeon in order to receive a formal evaluation and develop a doctor patient relationship.

For superficial lines, we use Juvederm Ultra, and for deep lines, we use Juvederm Ultra Plus.  As with everything else, good technique is very important.
