Downturned Mouth

Light Touch Clinic specialises in the safe and effective treatment of marionette lines. Our skin experts offer the latest treatments to boost dermal volume around the mouth.

About Downturned Mouth

Marionette lines are aptly named due to their appearance being similar to that of a marionette puppet, and its characteristically ‘split jaw’. These lines run from the outer corners of the mouth, downwards towards the chin and are a common symptom of ageing – usually developing during middle age.

The development of marionette lines can often give the mouth a downturned appearance, giving a sad expression. A loss in facial volume usually occurs as the skin becomes aged, this is due to a weakened structure as fat, soft tissues, and levels of collagen & elastin decrease. With a loss in volume, the face begins to be more suspectable to gravity, making for the downward effect.

As with other ageing-related concerns, lifestyle choices such as smoking, poor diet, alcohol consumption and overexposure to the sun, can have a negative impact on the ageing process and speed up its progression.
