what are nasolabial and marionette lines?
As our face age, the tissues below the cheeks begin to droop and sag, leading to predictable lines and shadows. Common areas of concern are the nasolabial and marionette lines. When we treat facial volume loss, we usually start with cheek fillers to provide support to the sagging areas beneath. Once this has been treated, we can further soften those lines using dermal fillers. (The ultimate way of improving sagging and volume loss is Dr Jake's Liquid Face Lift)
Nasolabial lines treated on their own as an isolated treatment is an outdated technique and can sometimes make the face look strangely 'flat'. This is why we usually start at the cheeks. In the same way, marionette lines are always treated in combination with chin and jaw fillers because they are the result of volume and bone loss of the chin and jaw unit.
