Some of the initial signs of aging are the nose to mouth lines. They are called nasal labial folds and usually begin in one’s late thirties or forties. As one progresses in age, the skin which loses collagen, causes the skin to drape over the area resulting in a fold and giving the appearance of an aged and tired face. This is something that a young face never has to deal with because of its plumpness. A line is completely natural for when one smiles, a line is created from the nose to the mouth, however, with age and facial expressions such as smiling, this nasal labial line deepens.

The malar fat pad is connected to the cheekbone giving the cheek its plump appearance, but with age, it relaxes and begins to sag in a downward direction causing the folds or lines from the nose to the mouth. There are ways to improve nose to mouth lines, both surgically and non-surgically.
Correction of nose to mouth lines or folds surgically is typically the result of a facelift: be it total facelift, cheek, or midface. In this type of procedure, sagging skin along with the malar fat pad are pulled in an upward direction and placed strategically higher over the cheekbone to give the appearance of a more youthful, plumper face.
Non-surgically, there are several options as well. With the help of soft tissue fillers such as Restalyn, and others, you can achieve plumpness all the while concealing the line and fold. These soft tissue fillers are injected at the area meant to be treated, in this case the nasal labial fold. For more of a plump, you should opt for the liquid facelift. This procedure uses fillers as well, but instead are used to add volume to the cheek area. At the same time, it lifts the sagging skin and pulls the nasal labial up.
Some other nonsurgical techniques in dealing with nasal labial folds are achieved with laser and/or light therapies. The lasers are used to tighten skin. Another noninvasive or minimally invasive procedure is a threadlift. It is safe, and leaves you with natural looking results, much like that of a facelift. Tiny sutures lift sagging areas and are inserted with a long needle and cannot be felt, nor seen.
Whichever procedure you choose to treat your nose to mouth lines, it is recommended that you research and find the right one that is within your budget and finding the right doctor by way of referrals.
