Nasolabial lines, also known as smile lines, laugh lines, or parentheses lines, are facial wrinkles or folds that extend from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth. These lines become more noticeable as people age and are a natural part of the aging process. They are often caused by a combination of factors, including the loss of skin elasticity, a decrease in collagen and elastin production, and repetitive facial movements such as smiling and laughing.

While nasolabial lines are a normal and common part of aging, they can be more pronounced in some individuals. Various factors can contribute to the development of nasolabial lines, including genetics, sun exposure, smoking, and overall skin care habits.

How does dermal filler works for nasolabial folds:

Hyaluronic Acid Composition: Most dermal fillers used for nasolabial folds are composed of hyaluronic acid (HA). Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body that contributes to skin hydration and volume.

Injection into Tissue: The filler is injected into the specific areas of the nasolabial folds using a fine needle or cannula. The injection is strategically placed to add volume and fill in the creases.

Binding with Water Molecules: Hyaluronic acid has a unique ability to attract and retain water molecules. Once injected into the skin, the hyaluronic acid in the filler binds with water, creating a gel-like matrix.

Volume Enhancement: As the hyaluronic acid gel attracts water, it expands, providing an immediate volumizing effect. This expansion helps plump up the skin, reducing the depth of nasolabial folds and smoothing out wrinkles.

Stimulation of Collagen Production: In addition to its immediate filling effect, hyaluronic acid may also stimulate the production of collagen, a protein that provides structural support to the skin. This can contribute to longer-term improvements in skin texture and elasticity.

Natural Integration with Surrounding Tissues: Hyaluronic acid fillers have a natural feel and integrate seamlessly with the surrounding tissues. This helps create a natural-looking result, avoiding an overly "filled" or artificial appearance.

Longevity: The duration of their effects typically lasts up to 6-12 months, depending on the types of filler used and ones lifestyles.

Minimal Pain: Our hyaluronic acid fillers contain lidocaine, a local anesthetic, which contributes to the overall comfort of the treatment. Most individuals report only mild, temporary discomfort, such as a pinching or stinging sensation, during the procedure.

Touch-Up Treatments: Touch-up treatments may be required to maintain or enhance the results as the filler gradually dissipates. These touch-up sessions can help sustain the desired aesthetic outcome over time.
