Smooth ageing laugh lines with minimal discomfort, no downtime and without looking artificial.
Nasolabial folds are the folds that form between your nose and your upper lip. These unwanted folds occur with ageing and volume loss in the cheek area. The folds appear as the lines from the lower nose corner to the corner of the mouth which make the face appear much less youthful.
As we age, we may notice areas of our face that we are not so happy with. Creases can appear around the mouth where previously the skin was smooth and can be more noticeable than others at our age, particularly when genetics and lifestyle factors such as smoking, and sun exposure come into play.
Age, sun damage, weight loss and smoking are the major causes of nasolabial folds. UV rays from the sun break down the collagen and elastin fibres in your skin that keep it smooth and supported. Smoking and alcohol can also accelerate the break down these fibres. As you age, the structure of your cheek bones flatten, causing the skin on your cheeks to droop downwards.
Many patients are concerned about the appearance of their nasolabial folds.
Dermal filler can be used to treat these unwanted folds making the area look smoother and younger. It is a safe and effective treatment for refreshing tired appearances with firmness, volume and hydration.
