Are there any other solutions for a deep marionette line?

I am 45 and have a deep marionette line on one side of my mouth that is about ½ inch in length. I had Sculptra injected and while it did soften the line it is still very noticable. Is there anything else I can have done that will help improve this?

Usually I tell my patients that with Sculptra, they will need 2-3 injections about 2-3 months apart.  I couldn’t tell from you question whether or not the Sculptra was done in a series???  If you just had one treatment, I’m not surprised that it wasn’t enough.   After the initial series of injections, usually one treatment once a year is enough to maintain it.   Write back if I’m not understanding the situation correctly!   Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
