Marionette Lines: Hyaluronic Acid Filler

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in humans.  In its purified form (Juvéderm or Restylane) it can be injected just below the skin and act like fat or collagen creating lift and softening creases in the face.  

Hyaluronic acid filler is a type of injectable treatment commonly used to enhance facial aesthetics by adding volume, reducing wrinkles, and improving skin texture. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body, known for its ability to retain moisture and promote hydration, making it a popular choice for non-surgical facial rejuvenation.

The Basics

Filler is made of a gel-like substance that can be injected into specific areas of the face to restore lost volume, smooth out wrinkles, and improve contour. When injected, the hyaluronic acid in the filler binds with water molecules in the skin, providing immediate plumping and lifting effects. This makes fillers ideal for treating various facial concerns, including:

  • Lips: HA fillers can be used to enhance lip volume, define lip shape, and correct asymmetry.
  • Cheeks: Injecting HA filler into the cheeks can restore volume and create a youthful, lifted appearance.
  • Nasolabial Folds: HA fillers can smooth out deep lines between the nose and mouth.
  • Marionette Lines: These lines that run from the corners of the mouth to the chin can be softened with HA fillers.
  • Under-Eye Hollows: HA fillers can reduce the appearance of under-eye bags and dark circles.

Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid Filler

  • Natural Results: Because hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body, HA fillers often produce a more natural look and feel compared to other filler types.
  • Reversible: If necessary, HA fillers can be dissolved using an enzyme called hyaluronidase, allowing for adjustments or reversals if needed.
  • Minimal Downtime: The procedure is minimally invasive, typically requiring little to no downtime, allowing clients to resume their daily activities shortly after treatment.
  • Versatility: HA fillers are versatile and can be used in various areas of the face, offering a range of aesthetic solutions in one treatment.

Who is a good candidate?

Fillers are suitable for individuals seeking non-surgical options to address signs of aging, enhance facial contours, or add volume to specific areas. Ideal candidates:

  • Desire Subtle Enhancements: HA fillers are great for those who want noticeable but subtle improvements without undergoing surgery.
  • Are in Good Overall Health: Candidates should be in good health and not have any contraindications to injectable treatments.
  • Have Realistic Expectations: While HA fillers can create significant changes, they are not permanent solutions, and results can vary based on individual factors.
