Nasolabial Folds

The nasolabial folds, commonly known as "smile lines" or "laugh lines are the two skin folds that run from each side of the nose to the corners of the mouth.

Volume loss in the middle third of the face leads to lack of support for the lower face and the formation of nasolabial folds. Nasolabial folds contribute to a tired or aged look and are often one of the first things people will identify as a cause of concern in the lower face.

Solution

Dermal fillers can be used to restore volume in the ageing face. Traditionally a medium thickness dermal filler was injected directly into the nasolabial fold to help correct it. However, the current trend is to correct the nasolabial fold by replacing lost volume in the cheek. This approach is generally preferred for a number of reasons:

  • The cause of the problem is mid face volume loss removing support for the lower face so it is logical to treat the cause rather than the symptom.
  • Overfilling the nasolabial fold can lead to an unnatural appearance where the lower face appears protruded too far forward (the “Homer Simpson look”).
  • Injecting the nasolabial fold carries the risk of inadvertent filler injection into an artery which can cause serious complications including skin ulceration and even blindness. Sometimes it is necessary to inject dermal filler into the cheek area and nasolabial fold to provide optimum results.

Longevity / Treatment Regime

If the nasolabial folds are injected rather than the cheeks then generally 1 to 2ml of medium thickness dermal filler is required. Review and possible further treatment is recommended after six month. Results will generally last around 12 months once optimum correction is achieved.
