It is very difficult to answer your question without seeing your pictures – you should consider posting images showing your areas of concern.  In general it is easier to enhance the columns than it is to remove them

Restylane/juvederm can accentuate or blunt the philtral columns or cupid's bow easily.

Temporary fillers such as restylane/juvederm can help change the shape of the philtral columns or cupid's bow easily and last about 6 months and is done under local anesthesia.  Sincerely,
