How Long Do Marionette Fillers Last?

The marionette lines are vertical lines that run between the corners of the mouth and the lower face. They typically occur due to age-related volume loss and skin sagging. Therefore, injectables such as Botox will not prevent these wrinkles from forming. Dermal fillers can help disguise the marionette lines for a younger appearance. But, how long do marionette fillers last? The exact length of time patients can enjoy their marionette filler results will depend on biological factors as well as the filler used. First, a patient’s metabolism helps determine how quickly the body breaks down the filler. Thus, people with faster metabolisms may not see filler last as long in their bodies. The type of filler used also matters. Most of the fillers used for marionette lines are hyaluronic acid based. Thus, they last anywhere from about six to twelve months on average. For more severe lines, patients may undergo Sculptra injections for the marionette lines which will result in longer lasting results. Sculptra also stimulates a collagen response which can help provide some permanent results. On average, Sculptra lasts around two years.  To learn more and schedule a consultation, call us at 425-775-3561. You can also reach out online via chat, contact us form, or Price Simulator.
