What is a Nasolabial Fold?
Nasolabial folds are the indentation lines on either side of the mouth that extend from the edge of the nose to the mouth’s outer corners. They are a normal part of our body, but they become deeper as people age.
A nasolabial fold can become saggy, thinner and wrinkles can develop next to the folds. People sometimes call these laugh lines or smile lines and they make many people self conscious. But now they can be less noticeable with convenient nasolabial fold fillers.
Nasolabial Fold Filler
A doctor can inject dermal fillers that are made of gel-like substances just under the skin in the nasolabial fold area or the upper cheek area. This gives the cheeks a lift, making the nasolabial folds less noticeable.
Even though a nasolabial fold filler can’t make the folds completely disappear, they can help them become less visible by making the surrounding skin fuller and more youthful. We often use Juvederm and Restylanenasolabial fold fillers for our clients.
JuvedermNasolabial Folds Treatment
Juvedermnasolabialfolds treatment integrates technology that provides a long-lasting option to smooth moderate to severe nasolabial folds. This fold filler takes less than 20 minutes and the results last for up to 18 months. It is made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance in our body that helps keep the skin plump and hydrated.
Are Nasolabial Fold Fillers Painful?
We use a topical skin anesthetic that sits on your skin for 30 to 40 minutes to make you comfortable during your nasolabial fold injections. The cream not only makes you more comfortable, it also decreases the chance of bruising.
How Long Do Nasolabial Fold Injections Take to Work?
You will notice a difference immediately after your treatment, but it can take a few days to see the full results. Depending on your skin, these nasolabial fold fillers will last from 4 to 6 months. To sustain the results, our doctor will recommend a schedule for maintenance injections.
What Causes a Nasolabial Fold?
A nasolabial fold can develop as a result of natural factors and our behaviours as well. It can become more noticeable because of the decline of collagen as we get older and repeated facial expressions. Collagen is a key protein that keeps our skin firm and smooth.
Sun exposure also makes nasolabial folds more noticeable because the sun can damage the skin, cause wrinkles and lead to changes in texture. Smoking, rapid weight loss and frequent fluctuations in weight can also make your skin age faster and cause folds.

RestylaneNasolabial Fold Treatment
Restylane helps correct moderate to severe nasolabial folds. You will get a younger appearance while maintaining your natural look. Keep expressing yourself as you hang out with your friends, family and colleagues without worrying about deepening facial folds.
Because the hyaluronic acid decomposes over time, the results fade. That’s why it is ideal to get maintenance treatments instead of waiting until all of the effects of the nasolabial fold injections go away completely.
