There are many types of wrinkles that appear on a person’s face. Wrinkles between the eyebrows, the smile, crow’s feet and neck wrinkles are very famous. But a little less familiar partner of theirs is the marionette line. We must fear this type of wrinkle as it appears on our face.

There are many reasons for marionette lines. The first is genetics. Due to genetics you can have certain type of facial appearance which can give rise to marionette lines.
