Smile Lines

Marionette, or smoker's lines come about as a result of years of normal facial movements. Of course for smokers, they use the lip pucker muscles more often, so they may be more prone to the development of these lines. The other conditions are a result of normal years of facial movements and normal volume loss due to aging.
 
There are several treatments available to minimize and correct these conditions. Treatments include Botox to relax the involved muscles, fillers, and Fraxel. With Botox a person can expect 3-6 months of improved appearance. The use of fillers should result in anywhere form 6 to fifteen months of improvement, depending on the filler used, and the severity of initial condition. Fraxel will provide the most long lasting improvement.
