Marionette lines, also known as ‘’Ageing Sad Mouth’’, are lines that run from the corners of your mouth down to your chin, and can make you look sad, even when you’re happy and smiling. Sad mouth lines can develop due to genes, ageing and smoking, and it’s these creases that also give the mouth a downward appearance, giving the impression that we are always tired and grumpy. Especially as we age, our skin produces considerably less collagen, reducing skin elasticity which causes our face (as well as other body parts) to sag. We also lose facial fat as we age, and it’s this loss of volume that further ages our face. This deepens marionette lines, while also forming nasolabial folds (lines that run from the nose to the mouth).

At Doctor Nyla, we understand the impact this can have on your self-confidence and the importance that your face plays in this. Luckily, we offer a range of treatments to improve your marionette lines, which include anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers and our silhouette soft thread lift. Our treatments not only improve your skin’s tone and laxity but provide you with natural-looking results. You should always be happy with the way that you look, and we think your mouth should be able to show it.

Top Treatments For Ageing Sad Mouth 

Skin Tightening Treatments For Ageing Sad Mouth

At Doctor Nyla, we offer a range of skin tightening treatments sure to improve the appearance of your ageing sad mouth, which include:

Ultracel: Combines ultrasound, radiofrequency and microneedling to target all layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production which lifts and tightens the skin.

Ultraformer: Uses high intensity focused (HIFU) ultrasound to target sagging skin to improve its appearance, texture and tone.

Take a look at some of the incredible before and afters of our clients as a result of skin tightening treatments like Ultracel and Ultraformer with Dr Nyla:

Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers are gel-like substances that restore lost volume in the face, stimulate collagen production and keep the treatment area hydrated. They fill in wrinkles, lines and folds while instantly improving skin texture and elasticity. They can also be used to plump up the skin, reducing the sag.

We offer a range of dermal fillers here at Doctor Nyla, and the one we choose is dependent on the depth of your marionette lines, as well as your medical history and desired results:

Juvederm: Also great for the lips and cheeks, Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus can target mild-to-moderate lines and wrinkles, as well as deeper wrinkles and folds. Both of these fillers contain hyaluronic acid (HA) to hydrate the skin and create that plump, youthful appearance.

Restylane: Two other hyaluronic acid-based fillers we offer here at Doctor Nyla are Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne. Used more for active marionette lines, they reduce their appearance in no time at all.

If you would also like to plump up your thinning lips, then our lip fillers can help you do just that!


Typically used in combination with dermal fillers, Botox works by blocking the nerve signals in muscles that cause marionette lines to form. This freezes the muscles, ensuring muscle movement is minimised and softens the appearance of current lines and wrinkles. Clients can benefit from Doctor Nyla’s specially-developed technique to the Botox treatment, which ensures a controlled amount is injected into the treatment area, based on our recommendations and the results you would like to see.

Typically lasting 15 minutes, the treatment is quick and effective, with results lasting up to 6 months. During your consultation we’ll conduct a thorough assessment of your medical history, and therefore suitability for Botox, and ensure you’re aware of the benefits it can provide you.

Silhouette Soft Thread Lifting

Also known as the ‘natural thread facelift’, Silhouette Soft is the only absorbable, non-permanent thread lift proven to produce collagen and not scar the underlying skin tissue. Superb for an ageing sad mouth, this treatment involves inserting a suture under the skin 3-5mm deep. The suture is then held in place with an absorbable cone which can be moved in all directions. We will then reshape your marionette lines, and lift the treated area for anti-ageing effects.

Along with targeting marionette lines, Silhouette Soft can also be used to contour the lower jaw, cheeks and cheekbones for that fuller appearance.
