    Marionette folds, also called marionette lines, are the folds of skin that extend from your mouth corners to your jawline.

    They are caused by a combination of volume loss in the chin and lower face, and sagging of the overlying skin and facial fat.

    While the most effective treatment option for marionette folds is surgery, dermal filler can also improve them.

    Marionette fold fillers reduce their severity, and is a great option for people who want to look fresh, without surgery.

    For a more pronounced improvement, we can combine marionette fold fillers to downturned mouth injections.

    Most people need 1-2ml of dermal filler to treat their marionette lines.

    For deeper folds, more dermal filler may be needed.

    After your comprehensive consultation, we clean, mark, and numb your marionette folds.

    Using tiny needles, or a blunt cannula, we carefully place dermal filler beneath the skin of your marionette folds. We then mould the filler to ensure a smooth result.

    Marionette fold fillers take 10-20 minutes.

    With a gentle approach and strong numbing, marionette fold filler has minimal discomfort.

    At Cosmetic Connection, we use premium products that contain local anaesthetic, tiny needles, and strong numbing so that your treatment is comfortable.

    Marionette fold fillers give an immediate result. Allow 1-2 days for the swelling to subside, and 1-2 weeks for the filler to settle.
