A sign that women are getting older is the appearance of various lines on the face, including marionette lines, lines of the wrinkles and crow’s feet. Many people do not know what marionette lines are, and here we will tell you the causes and prevention methods of marionette lines.
What are marionette lines?
Marionette lines are wrinkles that grow on both sides of the corners of the mouth, showing deep curved depressions on the outside or below the corners of the mouth. Girls with exaggerated expressions or who love to smile are more likely to have marionette lines, and as they get older, they look tired when they smile.
Like other wrinkles, marionette lines look like two lines around a puppet’s mouth and are caused by protein loss, soft tissue volume shrinkage, loss of support, and loss of dermal elasticity.
Why do marionette lines appear?
Rich facial expression
The tension formed by the muscles around the corners of the mouth and cheekbones will tighten the lines of marionette lines, so people who usually love to laugh, purse their lips, chew things on one side, and smoke will aggravate the lines of marionette lines on the face. The most important thing is to pay more attention to the expressions and relax the apple muscle to prevent the marionette lines.
After being storm thin
Being extremely thin is not a healthy thinness, it means losing a lot of weight in a short period of time. This not only causes the whole person to look unhealthy, but also makes the skin loose as well. Women lose collagen faster after the age of 20, and if they diet excessively to lose weight, their skin will gradually lose its elasticity without support.
Born with marionette lines
There are also some people who are born with a face that is prone to show marionette lines, such as people with high cheekbones, a sharp chin or people whose facial muscles are not full enough and so on. At this time, the only way to give the skin enough elasticity to restore the lines is to ensure that it has enough moisture and nutrients.
How to get rid of marionette lines?
The main reason for marionette lines is because of the atrophy of soft tissues and loss of support, resulting in a decrease in dermal elasticity, so once the lines are formed, it is difficult to improve them. You can get rid of marionette lines through medical beauty.

So we must correct the hunchback posture and control the time we spend playing with the phone.
- Unloading lip makeup to be gentle, many girls in the unloading lip makeup directly with a cotton pad vigorously wipe, which can easily lead to the generation of the corner of the mouth lines. Never use a haphazard wiping method to remove makeup, but use a compress to stay on the lips for a few moments before gently wiping.
- Because when the lips are dry they will first absorb moisture from the skin around the lips, resulting in partial loss of moisture around the lips and making it easier for marionette lines to appear, it is also important to apply the cream around the lips during skincare.
- Use a simple action to lighten the marionette lines: do a gargle-like puffing of the cheeks, move your tongue in your mouth and push against the cheeks. Inhale vigorously to fill your mouth with air, and purse your mouth tightly to move from side to side. Do each movement five times in a row, four times a day.
