What Are Nasolabial Lines?

As we age, we could start to see parts of our faces that we are not as happy with. One such issue is nasolabial folds, also known as smile lines or laugh lines, which are creases in the skin extending from both sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth. These creases can become more prominent and permanent as we age, especially if genetics and lifestyle factors like smoking are involved. Even a broad smile can speed up the onset of these lines, causing prominent nasolabial folds. However, we don’t have to accept these wrinkles as a natural part of aging. Dermal filler treatment provides a remedy that can also aid in the reduction of wrinkles and the restoration of the skin’s lifted, moisturised, and youthful appearance.

Are Nasolabial lines the same as smile lines?

Nasolabial folds are natural lines on either side of the mouth that can become more prominent with age and sun damage, among other factors. They may be increased when smiling and are therefore often called smile lines. They are considered a cosmetic issue and do not require treatment. However, some individuals may choose to reduce their appearance through non-surgical or surgical procedures, such as dermal fillers.

How can I treat Nasolabial Folds?

Dermal fillers are a popular choice for treating nasolabial folds. These fillers are injected into the crease itself to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. The effects can last anywhere from 9 months or longer, depending on the type of filler used and the individual’s skin. Other treatments available for nasolabial folds cheeks filler, which may take the weight out of the fold. Retinoids and other highly active creams may work well in tandem with hyaluronic acid filler treatment.

How can I Prevent Nasolabial Folds

Prevention is always better than treatment. To prevent nasolabial folds, it is recommended to eat a healthy diet, avoid tanning beds and reduce sun exposure as well as wearing SPF 30 or more. These steps can help protect the skin from further damage and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Are Dermal filler treatments good for nasolabial lies or smile lines?

Nasolabial folds are a natural part of aging, but they don’t have to be permanent. Dermal fillers and other treatments can reduce their visibility, while facial exercises and prevention measures can help keep them at bay. If you are considering a dermal filler treatment, contact us now for a consultation with our highly experienced Consultants, Dr Humble and Dr Basi. Remember, prevention is always better than treatment. Protect your skin from sun damage and maintain a healthy lifestyle to keep your skin looking youthful and radiant for years to come.

What Causes Nasolabial Folds?

What Causes Nasolabial Folds?
Although the majority of patients think that these folds indicate ageing, they do not. Everyone has nasolabial folds, which are a typical component of human anatomy. However, as they become older, many people start to notice them more. They could sag as well as deepen over time. Some people may have fine wrinkles as they age. Others, though, may experience lines that go all the way to their chin. These are what are referred to as marionette lines.

There are many reasons why these folds grow more obvious. The following is a list of the factors.

  • Decrease in collagen – Our skin’s collagen production declines as we get older. As a result, the skin surrounding the mouth and eyes appears weaker and thinner than usual.
  • Losing weight – We also lose some of the cheek fat that is often retained as we get older. Parts of the face could appear sagging as a result of this loss.
  • Solar exposure – Skin damage can develop over time as a result of frequent and prolonged sun exposure. This could alter the texture of the skin on the face and lead to wrinkles
