Nose to mouth lines are the lines or folds that run from both sides of your nose down to the corners of your mouth they are also known as laughter lines and nasolabial folds.
The area around your mouth and nose is delicate and as it ages fine lines, wrinkles and permanent creases begin to appear which can cause you to look older and unhappy which is often referred to as the marionette look with the downturned appearance of the mouth.
The main causes of these lines are unfortunately just a pure act of ageing with your skin losing elasticity and losing fat. The natural movement of the muscles in your lips and around your mouth when you smile, talk or kiss for example can cause creases which over a period of time can become permanent. Other factors that can affect these lines include smoking and sun exposure.

The most common treatment for nose to mouth lines is dermal filler. Dermal filler contains hyaluronic acid which is found naturally in the body resulting in virtually no side effects or downtime.
Dermal Filler can be injected into the nose to mouth lines which then works by hydrating and increasing volume to the skin correcting the lines and creases giving a smoother and lifted appearance.
Pixel is a laser treatment that works to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as other skin conditions. For nose to mouth lines we would recommend 3-5 treatments spaced a month apart. The treatment works by causing a small area of injury which encourages your skin to produce new collagen and smooths and tightens the nose to mouth lines.
Profhilo can be used to treat nose to mouth lines, it is similar to dermal fillers in that it contains hyaluronic acid, but unlike dermal fillers it does not add volume to the skin. Profhilo is an injectable treatment that works over time to restore the body’s natural level of hyaluronic acid resulting in tighter skin with a rejuvenated appearance. Profhilo works to cure wrinkles rather than fill them resulting in a more natural level of rejuvenation.
Profhilo treatment for nose to mouth lines is available at London Harley Street, Northampton and Princes Risborough (Buckinghamshire) which is close to Aylesbury, Oxford, High Wycombe and Beaconsfield.
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Therapy is a natural skin rejuvenation and restoration treatment that works by using a concentrated dose of your own blood plasma to stimulate your skin to repair itself.
Also known as the vampire face lift, the treatment takes around an hour to perform and involves taking a sample of your own blood and then injecting the plasma back into your face to promote increased collagen production resulting in an improved appearance to nose to mouth lines as well as an improvement in your skin’s texture and tone.
