Dermal Fillers for Nasolabial Folds

j1Nasolabial folds are the lines that run vertically from the sides of the nose to the corners of the upper lip, they are sometimes referred to as smile lines. Dermal fillers can be used to soften the appearance of these folds.

Nasolabial lines are the two skin folds that normally run from each side of the nose to the corners of the mouth, they separate the cheeks from the upper lip and are commonly referred to as nasolabial folds. Nasolabial lines can appear at an early age and can make us look older than we really are. In the mid twenties they may just appear as minor depressed lines and are in fact quite difficult to see unless someone is looking for them, however as the years pass their visibility increases and they become associated with an ageing face.

Treatment

The dermal fillers we use to treat some wrinkles and deep lines are bio-stimulants of the body’s own collagen, these dermal fillers consist of hyaluronic acid (non-animal based) which is a substance naturally present in living cells. Filler is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle and can have a lasting result of up to 9-12 months dependant on the individual.  Hyaluronic acid can be used as a wrinkle filler, fold filler, cheek filler or for even lip augmentation.  It supersedes in safety the older collagen (animal in origin) and silicon fillers now used less often.

What To Expect

jevedermResults can be seen immediately and treatment with fillers is safe, fast and leaves no permanent scars or other traces on the face. Fillers add natural volume in your skin to lift and produce new firmness resulting in a healthy & vital appearance. After the procedure has been carried out the treated area may be slightly red and/or slightly swollen, however you can resume normal activities, immediately.
The results typically last 9-12 months although the exact length of time will depend on the structure of your skin and other factors such as lifestyle and age. Additional touch up treatments can be performed at any time after the initial treatment.

“Helena I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the dermal filler. I feel it has really softened the lines on my face and I don’t know how I’ve managed to live without it so far!
Thanks again”, Mrs E, Edinburgh.
