Hi Karien, thank you for the question.

I am not 100% sure where the lines are exactly so my suggestion is to repost a new question describing where the lines radiate from (such as the nose or from the side of the face) and where exactly they end (just above the lip line, into the lips, etc). Your other option is to consult a cosmetic dermatologist or an aesthetic medical practitioner who can examine the area of concern and advise you on the best treatment options.
Typically lines around the mouth area respond well to fillers (if done correctly) or to laser.
