Nose to Mouth Lines
What is it and what is the cause?
Nose to mouth lines are normal and an inevitable sign of ageing, but they can cause the face to look tired and sagging, adding years to your appearance. They are caused by volume loss in the cheeks together with skin laxity and can be mild to start with but become deeper and more pronounced over time.
If loss of volume and skin laxity is the cause then clearly adding volume back to the mid face and/or skin tightening is the solution. Simply returning the face back to how it used to look. Consultations are free of charge to see which would be the right treatment for you.
