Accordion line filler
Smooth lower cheek lines and wrinkles around your mouth with accordion line filler. The vertical wrinkles that develop on your lower cheeks with age are known as accordion lines. A common concern, we can reduce these wrinkles with dermal fillers.
How it works
Are the wrinkles around your mouth and lower cheek a reminder of ageing? Known as accordion lines because of their resemblance to an accordion, these wrinkles are a common reason people get cosmetic injectables.
Accordion lines develop due to sagging skin and a loss of collagen. The skin becomes thin and slack, causing it to bunch and crease. Accordion line filler is used to support and hydrate the skin, filling out the wrinkles. The result is an improvement in your accordion lines when relaxed and when speaking and smiling. The added support also prevents these wrinkles from worsening.

Accordion lines are the vertical wrinkles on your lower cheeks on each side of your mouth. Also called peri-oral lines, they are a common sign of ageing.
Accordion lines develop as our skin becomes thinner and weaker. When making facial expressions the lower cheek skin bunches and creases. Over time these wrinkles become etched into the skin.
There are a number of treatments to improve accordion lines.
Dermal fillers can soften accordion lines. By supporting and hydrating the skin, fillers immediately reduce the appearance of accordion lines with results lasting 12-24 months.
Collagen stimulating injections reduce accordion lines by restoring structure to your skin and adding supportive volume.
PDO mono threads and radio frequency skin needling reduce accordion lines by restoring skin collagen, making it less prone to wrinkling.
A combination approach is usually the most effective solution for accordion lines.
The amount of filler required, and the experience of your injector determines the cost of your accordion line filler.
For our current pricing of accordion line dermal fillers, please review the ‘dermal filler’ section on our treatment pricing page.
Dermal fillers reduce accordion lines by supporting and hydrating the skin. This fills out the lines, reducing their severity, and making it less prone to wrinkling.
Accordion line filler has very little discomfort. We use premium fillers that contain local anaesthetic, and strong numbing to almost eliminate pain.
Accordion line fillers immediately improve your accordion lines.
Dermal fillers usually last 12-24 months when used to treat accordion lines.
Prepare for accordion line filler with these steps:
- Avoid alcohol and intense exercise within 24 hours of your treatment
- Remove all makeup before arriving for your appointment
After accordion line filler you should avoid makeup, intense exercise and alcohol for 24 hours. You can gently apply a wrapped ice pack intermittently to reduce swelling.
When performed by an appropriately qualified and experienced medical professional, injecting accordion line dermal fillers are safe.
What are peri-oral accordion lines?
Accordion lines, also known as as peri-oral lines or wrinkles, are the vertical creases found on your lower cheeks around the mouth. They may also be called smile lines, because they are more pronounced when smiling.
Accordion lines reflect damage to the skin that accumulates with age. They are one of the most common signs of ageing, and are frequent reason people choose to get dermal filler injections.
Why do we develop accordion lines?
Accordion lines develop due to damage to the skin that occurs from repeated skin bunching and folding when smiling. UV rays and smoking, as well as genetics also play a role in the development of accordion lines.
Sleeping on your side can also accelerate the development of accordion lines by bunching the skin.
Over time, the wrinkles that are normally only visible when smiling become visible at rest as the skin thins, weakens and ages.
How to treat accordion lines with dermal filler
Treating accordion lines can be achieved with dermal filler injections. Dermal fillers add support and hydration to the skin. This both fills out the wrinkles and provides more support to the skin when it bunches during facial expression.
Dermal fillers are a great first line option because they are quick, convenient and reversible. They can achieve significant improvements in the appearance of your accordion lines.
Importantly, you should also invest in treatments that improve skin collagen. This helps to further strengthen and reenforce the skin. It makes it more resilient, and less prone to wrinkling in your lower cheeks.
