What are marionette lines?
Marionette lines (also called puppet lines or mentolabial folds) are among the facial wrinkles that form naturally with age. They run from the corners of the mouth towards the chin line.
Marionette lines or puppet lines owe their name precisely to this shape: they "separate" the chin area from the rest of the face, which is strongly reminiscent of the characteristic facial features of marionettes.
Marionette lines often appear together with nasolabial folds. These extend down from the wings of the nose to the corners of the mouth and, like marionette lines, belong to the smile or expression lines.
