Nose to Mouth / Nasolabial Lines


Nasolabial folds are common wrinkles that form alongside your inner cheeks. They stretch from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth.

Everyone has these wrinkles to some degree, but they tend to get deeper with age, along with other factors.

While there are numerous types of wrinkle therapies available, dermal fillers tend to be the first line of treatment recommended by dermatologists.

Other treatments may be used instead, depending on the severity of the folds as well as other concerns, such as sagging skin.


We recommend fillers for nasolabial folds over more invasive procedures, such as surgery. While individual results may vary, dermal fillers generally provide the following benefits:

  • increased collagen in the skin, which helps to plump up the targeted area

  • increased volume around the mouth area

  • an overall “lift” of the skin

  • the appearance of smoother and softer skin

  • minimal side effects

  • immediate results

  • the option to wear makeup after your treatment, if desired

What Causes Nasolabial Lines to worsen?

Everyone has nasolabial folds, but they can become more noticeable as you age because of natural collagen losses. When you lose collagen, your skin can become less firm and supple, thereby deepening these types of wrinkles.

Another reason nasolabial folds become more prominent with age is because of the tendency of cheeks to flatten out. As this occurs, your skin droops downward, deepening the folds around your cheeks.

There are other factors that you may be able to control. Chronic sun exposure has been found to contribute to skin aging (photoaging) by destroying elastin and collagen in the skin.

In turn, this can also make skin wrinkles like nasolabial folds more noticeable. Wearing sunscreen every day is a must to prevent cancers and photoaging.

Other risk factors for nasolabial folds include:

  • weight fluctuations

  • sleeping on your side

  • smoking

Quitting smoking can be difficult, but a doctor can help create a cessation plan that works for you.

How much does the treatment cost?

Prices start from £240 and varies on how much haluronic acid filler is required to achieve the desired result. This will all be discussed prior to the treatment.
