So-called “laugh lines” may look cute in your 20s or even 30s, but once the marionette lines become deeper and more visible, we all begin to resent them. Aging processes can’t be stopped, but there are always options to consider to slow and correct the effects and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. False Creek Skin Solution Clinic offers a wide range of treatments that can help achieve a more youthful looking face.
WHAT CAUSES MARIONETTE LINES?
Just like any other folds and wrinkles, marionette lines are caused by the lack of collagen and elastin as well as the repeated motion of smiling and scowling. As we age and the collagen density decreases, the skin becomes thinner and it tends to crease. Since there is no certain way to prevent these types of wrinkles (genetics plays a huge part), the best way is to take good care of your skin and avoid sun exposure as much as possible.
MARIONETTE LINES TREATMENT OPTIONS.
Dermal fillers have the ability to instantly smooth facial folds and wrinkles. The fillers push up and support the folds that create deep lines. This type of treatments lasts between a year and 18 months. Combining this treatment with Botox will not only extend the results but help prevent the wrinkles from becoming more severe. Sometimes the folds become more visible because of the sagging skin from the cheek area. In that case, rejuvenating the cheeks with dermal fillers may give wonderful results and the uplifting effect.
PRF Bio Stimulators
An effective and natural looking results can be achieved with the use of PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrin), a substance that is taken from your own blood and injected into various areas of the face. PRF triggers growth factors which increase your collagen production from within. The treatment can be used alone or combined with dermal fillers to offer dramatic improvements in facial folds.
Instant Face Lift or Soft Lift
The “Soft Lift” is a non-surgical procedure that provides an “instant facelift” effect. The main goal of this procedure is to combine the benefits of both treatments, Botox, and Dermal Fillers like Juvederm, in order to restore natural and youthful appearance. Any area of the face can be treated: upper, mid or lower.
