Nasolabial Folds

To create a smooth profile, dermal filler can be used to reduce the lines or creases that run between the sides of the nose and the corners of the mouth.


These are the lines that form between the sides of the nose and corners of the mouth. As we age, the fat present in the cheek drops due to gravity and structural changes occur causing the lines to become more obvious. You may notice that makeup collects here when it never used to.

Part of what gives these lines or folds their prominence is the fact that, as the cheek tissue drops, a shadow is created in the fold making it look more exaggerated. Dermal filler can be injected into the region of the fold to flatten the area a little, reducing the depth of the fold and the shadowing. The end result is a smoother and more youthful appearance.

How is the treatment applied?

Following a consultation, I will apply some topical anaesthetic to the areas and allow this to work for 15-20 minutes. A few small injections of filler are then placed to soften the folds. The filler also contains a local anaesthetic, ensuring the treatment is comfortable for you.

Once the product has been placed, I will massage the areas to ensure an even result on both sides. Results are noticeable instantly but there will be a small amount of redness and swelling following the treatment. The full effects of the treatment are therefore usually appreciated after 24-48 hours.
