Facial Wrinkles Defined: Nasolabial-Fold vs. Marionette Lines

Bookmark and Share Posted on 04/25/2012

Peter Thomas Roth Un-wrinkle Turbo Face SerumYou can’t stop the aging process, but you can slow it down. As you grow (ahem) wiser, some of the most common wrinkles that start to form are those known as “smile lines.”

The truth is that smiling doesn’t necessarily form wrinkles around your mouth – in fact, it can actually help prevent them. The lines that appear around the mouth might actually be “nasolabial-folds” or “marionette lines.” The reduction of elastin and collagen fibers in your face can make these lines more pronounced. A Peter Thomas Roth Labs consumer study found that the nourishing compounds in one of the skin care company’s products stimulates the production of collagen and reduces the appearance of these unwanted signs of a full life.

The Nasolabial-Fold

Nasolabial-folds are lines that form from the sides of your nose down to the sides of your mouth. These lines form because of sun damage, loss of muscle tone, smoking, gravity and loss of fat in this area of the face. Some cosmetic dermatologists may prescribe hyaluronic acid injections over a 9- to 12-month period to help diminish the appearance of these lines.

Marionette Lines

Marionette lines get their names from, yes, puppets because the wrinkles generally form from the corners of the mouth down to the corners of the chin. Muscle movements from frowning or pursing your lips (like when a person smokes) can cause the formation of these lines, along with sun damage, gravity, weight loss and a loss of volume in this area of the face. Doctors may also use hyaluronic acid injections to help smooth over these types of wrinkles.

A No-Needle Solution

Before your doctor reaches for a needle, give the Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle Turbo Face Serum a try. This anti-aging potion uses peptides and neuropeptides to help relax and reduce the depth of wrinkles and expression lines, as well as boost the body’s natural production of collagen.

Furthermore, the new Un-Wrinkle Turbo helps prevent the formation of wrinkles, helps plump and smooth your skin and softens and refines your skin’s tone and texture. In addition to helping eliminate the lines around your mouth, Un-WrinkleTurbo from Peter Thomas Roth Labs reduces the appearance of crow’s feet, lines around your nose, and forehead wrinkles.

In clinical studies, participants experienced a 72 percent reduction in the size of wrinkles in just 28 days. These results beat 9-12 months of injections any day.
