Nasolabial folds are the deep crease which runs from either side of the nose down towards the corners of the mouth. These lines are formed as part of the natural aging process and become more noticeable as we loose volume from our mid-face and cheeks.
Deep nasolabial folds can be corrected with the use of dermal filler injected into the surrounding area by either sharp needle or cannula. This helps alleviate the hollowing in this area, restoring volume and softening the appearance of these creases.
Nasolabial filler is often used in conjunction with cheek filler in order to restore the lost mid-face volume and structure. By treating the main issue of volume depletion in the mid face with cheek filler, we ultimately lift the nasolabial folds, decreasing the heaviness in the lower face.
Of course, this option will not be applicable to everyone. In your consultation, your practitioner will discuss your concern and the best options available to create the desired outcome.
