Frequently asked questions

How to get rid of nose to mouth lines? Plus Icon

Nose to mouth lines are a natural part of the ageing process, but some people may choose to get rid of them for cosmetic reasons. There are a number of treatments available to address nasolabial folds, including surgical and non-surgical solutions.

Surgery for nose to mouth lines Plus Icon

Surgical treatments for nose to mouth lines include facelift, cheek lift, or a mid-face lift (a facelift administered to the lower eyelids and cheeks.) These procedures involve a surgeon lifting loose skin upward in order to smooth out folds and lines caused by sagging.

Can Botox® injections be used for nose to mouth lines? Plus Icon

In general, BOTOX® injections are not usually used around the nasolabial folds or nose to mouth lines. This is because relaxing the muscles in the lower half of your face is a complex process and can affect how you smile. In some cases, a low dose of BOTOX® might be suitable for nasolabial folds. The doctor administering your treatment will be able to advise you about this.

What are marionette lines? Plus Icon

Marionette lines are deep-set wrinkles which appear at the corner of the mouth and run downwards onto the chin. They are similar to nasolabial folds and are usually treated in the same way.

How to get rid of nose to mouth lines naturally?

Wrinkles occur due to a depletion of collagen and elastin in the skin caused by age or sun damage. The effects of this change in the skin’s texture and conditions can be improved by following a strict skincare regime which incorporates a moisturiser containing peptides and vitamin A, plus a good exfoliator. This won’t remove the lines but might help soften their appearance.

Some suggest that facial exercises such as face yoga and facial massage can help reduce lines around the nose and mouth.
