When we look at our faces in the mirror to assess what changes might bring us a more youthful look, we see lines. Often the vertical lines are the most aging, particularly the lines from the nostrils down to the corner of the mouth. These are called, nasolabial folds. They make us look drawn, older and tired, which is a shame considering many of us still feel 30!
Often the cause is the fat pads on the cheeks sliding down or fat loss in the cheeks which creates heaviness and sometimes a complete fold on either side of the mouth. If you put your fingers on your cheeks and lift them up slightly, you will notice that your nasolabial folds decrease. Enquiry Now
A non invasive treatment option dermal fillers are the ideal treatment option. Dermal fillers, allow us to sculpt a patient’s face by adding volume to facial features that have become sunken in or hollowed out. The hyaluronic acid-based gel fillers offered at our practice are also particularly effective in filling in deep creases, in order to soften the appearance of lines such as nasolabial folds. While dermal fillers do not permanently correct the appearance of nasolabial folds, results do last for roughly six months, and treatment can be repeated as necessary.
