Dermal Fillers For Nasolabial Folds

 

The appearance of folds when we smile, also known as nasolabial folds or smile lines, are a normal part of the anatomy of the face.

Nasolabial folds become problematic, however, when they remain when we have a relaxed, non-smiling face or when they become deep and defined due to the sagging of ageing skin.

With these cases, treating nasolabial folds with dermal filler can have dramatic results. This non-permanent, non-invasive approach will plump out the lines and provide a smoother, more youthful appearance.

What Are Nasolabial Folds?

The nasolabial folds are lines that start from the nose and extend down to the left and right of the mouth. Whilst they originate as expressive lines that only appear with emotions such as smiling, as we age the lines become more permanent and deeper. Advanced nasolabial folds can meet other folds of the mouth area and extend down to the chin. This can make the entire area of the mouth appear drooping with a constant unhappy or grumpy look.

How Can Dermal Fillers Be Used To Treat Nasolabial Lines?

When treating nasolabial folds, dermal filler can be injected directly into the folds. This can plump out the creases and remove shadows around the area. However, for nasolabial folds to be eliminated successfully, it is a better approach to treat the cause of the folds, namely facial deflation of the cheeks.

With ageing, bone resorption and redistribution of facial fat can cause the skin of the cheeks to sag and enhance the nasolabial folds. Targeting cheek filler for nasolabial folds can lift the sagging skin of the midline of the face and provide relief from creases and heavy shadowing.

When Will I See Results From Nasolabial Fold Filler?

With dermal fillers an immediate volumising effect can been seen directly after treatment. However, there will also be a small amount of swelling which will take 7-10 days to go down.

In addition, dermal fillers are hydrating agents that also stimulate collagen production and remodelling of the deep tissue layers of the skin. This has the additional benefit of producing a progressive volumising effect continuing for approximately 2-4 weeks after the first treatment. Dermal fillers are however not permanent. The body will break down the filler over the course of 1-2 years, after which additional top-up treatments are recommended.

Do Nasolabial Fillers Hurt?

When receiving injections directly into the nasolabial folds, patients may find this area more sensitive than other regions treated with dermal filler. However, this is still only a very mild level of pain or discomfort. Local anaesthetic or numbing cream can be applied if required. A small level of bleeding during treatment and possible bruising, tenderness and swelling is also to be expected. This should typically go down in the first few days after treatment.

Are Nasolabial Dermal Fillers Safe?

Dermal fillers that are applied to the nasolabial folds have a high and well-established safety profile for aesthetic uses. A hyaluronic acid-based filler, such as Juvederm or Restylane is typically used to produce rejuvenating effects. All patients will go through an in-depth consultation before each treatment to ensure you fully understand the process, the results and the products that will be used.
