Naturally enhance & restore features


Marionette lines are long vertical lines that commonly develop on each side of the chin as a result of the ageing process and other lifestyle factors. The skin around your mouth is thinner compared with the rest of your face, so it is particularly prone to wrinkling. Marionette lines are caused by a combination of collagen breakdown and loss of elastin that leads to the loosening of skin in the cheeks and lower part of the face.

People typically begin developing marionette lines in their late 30s or early 40s. In the early stages, marionette lines are barely visible, but as time goes by these creases can become very deep and noticeable. Once they have appeared, the only way to fix marionette lines is to get to the source of the problem.


  • Aging and naturally losing collagen in your skin.

  • Having parents or grandparents with marionette lines.

  • Not wearing sunscreen on your face.

  • Pursing your lips frequently.

  • Severe stress.

  • Smoking.

  • Sun exposure, which can lead to sun damage.


Dermal filler is a term used to describe a substance that is injected into the dermis of the skin in order to plump and lift the tissue. Hyaluronic acid dermal filler can be injected into the cheeks to lift the skin, the jawline to pull back on sagging skin or can be injected directly into the marionette lines to plump the hollows. Dermal filler injection is an effective and long-lasting treatment option, with no down-time.


Results are instant and can last anything from 12 to 18 months, but the exact duration varies from person to person based on various factors, such as the individual’s metabolism and lifestyle.

How long do the results last for? Made from hyaluronic acid, which breaks down, fillers will eventually be absorbed into the skin after around 6-18 months time. Depending on the area being injected and the amount of filler used.

I’m pregnant, can I have dermal fillers? Currently, no thorough research has been undertaken to conclude the side effect of dermal fillers in pregnant women. For this reason, we do not advise dermal filler procedures during pregnancy.

What’s the difference between Dermal Fillers and Botox? Botulinum toxin relaxes muscle movement that results in wrinkles, whilst dermal fillers smooth out wrinkles. They can be combined to achieve more effective results.

What is the difference between marionette lines vs. nasolabial folds? Marionette lines and nasolabial folds are in different locations on your face. Nasolabial folds are known as smile lines and extend from the nose to the mouth. Marionette lines appear below nasolabial folds.

How soon will I notice results? After procedure, you can notice the difference immediately and your skin will look revitalised naturally. Although, the full effect of the fillers won't be visible until 2-4 weeks after. ​

Are dermal fillers reversible? Yes- we can reverse any Hyaluronic acid based filler with an enzyme called hyalase. This takes 24-48 hours to take effect. The filler is dissolved and area returns to its original state.

Does it hurt and is it safe? Most dermal fillers contain a local anaesthetic, meaning people generally find the procedure more comfortable than expected. This procedure is completely safe and you'll be in the professional hands.

Who is a good candidate for injection of dermal fillers? A good candidate for dermal fillers is one who is physically healthy, a non-smoker, and has realistic goals about improvement of appearance.

How is the dermal filler injection performed? A local anesthetic cream may be offered for comfort before the dermal filler procedure. Using several small injections, the dermal filler is placed at the desired locations for maximum aesthetic effect.

How will the area look immediately after the dermal filler injection? Immediately after the dermal filler injection the treated area may appear overfilled with mild bruising or swelling. There may also be some transient redness and numbness. These symptoms may be alleviated within a couple of hours or a few days using topical ice application. ​


What are the precautions to be taken after treatment ? You are advised to avoid alcohol, coffee, or direct sunlight exposure for 24 hours after the injection.

What are the associated risks with dermal fillers ? There is a small risk of developing a rash, swelling, bruising, infection, and formation of lumps under the skin.

What is the recovery time after undergoing treatment with dermal fillers ? There is zero downtime after undergoing a dermal filler injection. In most cases, you should be able to return to your activities of daily living right away.

What are dermal fillers? Dermal fillers are substances that have been developed and tested for injections into certain areas of skin and tissues for the purpose of cosmetic improvement. They are compatible with the body and can be classified as temporary. The compound is called hyaluronic acid and mimics the same compound in our body. They are used to uplift the mid face, cheek augmentation, lips augmentation, improve the shape of the nose, etc.
