While you likely haven’t heard of nasolabial folds, you may have heard of laugh lines. They are deep lines that extend from either side of your nose down toward the corners of your mouth. Since they are most prominent when you’re smiling or laughing, nasolabial folds are often called laugh lines or smile lines.
As we get older, these lines become more and more visible. This is thanks to skin thinning out and sagging. Having nasolabial folds is by no means harmful to your health, but it can affect your confidence and your mental wellbeing.
Our team at Valley Laser and Skin offers a variety of nasolabial fold treatments, including fillers. This is a minimally invasive procedure that involves injections of dermal filler around your smile to give you the best results possible.
Filler For Nasolabial Folds
If you’re willing to consider nasolabial fold filler to take back your confidence and have smooth skin around your face, we’d love to help. Dermal fillers are injectable compounds used in the treatment of facial wrinkles. They work by “plumping” the area of skin so that fine lines and deep wrinkles appear smoother.
This filler stimulates collagen, which provides a plump and youthful look. Our filler contains hyaluronic acid, which helps to firm and hydrate the skin. Your body will eventually dissolve these fillers. Overall, the injectables last between six and 18 months.
Advantages of Using Filler
One of the biggest benefits of using filler to banish these unattractive lines is that it’s almost painless. It plumps the targeted area using collagen and can increase the volume around your mouth. You’ll get a “lift” of the skin where the laugh lines once were, resulting in smoother, softer, younger-looking skin.
There are very few side effects with filler. There may be slight swelling or discomfort for up to 48 hours. There’s no downtime, and results are almost immediate. You can even wear makeup right after your treatment!
