Vitamin E will not reduce your nasolabial folds. The main treatment for this area is placement of a filler into the cheek and the nasolabial fold itself. This is a safe and very common office procedure.

Vitamin E does not reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds. It may help improve the outer surface layer of your skin.

But nasolabial folds are cause by muscles and tissues that are deeper within the skin.  With age, these tissues will start to change, causing the face to look droopy. Deep nasolabial folds are often the first signs of this process.

One of the best fillers to use for this area is Radiesse.  Radiesse does not just provide volume, it also offers structural support when needed. This is due to the calcium microspheres that make up the injection.

Here is a real example of an actual patient who benefited from this. Radiesse really helped her look much younger.

Vitamin E will unfortunately not reduce your nasolabial folds.  Best is to consider soft tissue filler, e.g. Restylane/Perlane, Juvederm or Radiesse.
