Frequently asked questions

Can marionette lines be prevented? Plus Icon

While it is not possible to completely prevent the formation of marionette lines, there are certain measures you can take to minimise their development or delay their appearance. Here are some tips that may help:

  • UV and HEVL protection: Protecting your skin from excessive UV (ultraviolet) and HEVL (high energy visible light) exposure is important in preventing premature aging and the formation of wrinkles, including marionette lines. Both UV and HEVL can be found in the sun’s rays, and HEVL is also emitted from your devices such as mobile phones. Use broad-spectrum sunscreen with an appropriate SPF of 30 or higher such as Heliocare, seek shade when the sun is strongest, and wear protective clothing and accessories. It’s also a good reason to take a break from screens.
  • A good skincare routine: Keeping your skin well-hydrated and plump can help maintain its elasticity and minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Early intervention: As sugar, smoking and alcohol can damage the skin and cause premature ageing, it’s worth thinking about cutting back or stopping

Can exercises or facial yoga reduce marionette lines? Plus Icon

There is a lack of rigorous scientific studies specifically examining the impact of facial exercises or facial yoga on marionette lines.

That said, facial exercises or facial yoga may have some potential benefits for facial muscle tone and overall facial appearance. Engaging in facial exercises or yoga can help increase blood circulation, promote relaxation, and potentially enhance muscle strength and tone. This may contribute to a more lifted and toned appearance of the face, which could potentially impact the appearance of marionette lines.
