Nasolabial Fold Fillers Boston
For many women and men, nasolabial folds can be one of the more prominent aesthetic facial flaws that gives their faces an aged appearance. Also referred to as smile lines or laugh lines, nasolabial folds are a common facial concern whose appearance can range from mild to severe. Thankfully, our team at The Spiegel Center can easily reduce their appearance and rejuvenate the beauty of your face using nasolabial folds fillers.
What are Nasolabial Folds?
Nasolabial folds, also known as smile lines or laugh lines, are the large folds that form from the bottom of the nose to the corners of the mouth. Nasolabial folds are actually a natural aspect of the face. You can notice them form when you smile and laugh, but once the facial muscles relax, they soften. However, some individuals have deep and more prominent nasolabial folds or notice that their smile lines have become more noticeable as they age.
What Causes Nasolabial Folds?
Nasolabial folds can develop and become more severe over time due to a variety of reasons. They tend to form as a result of lost of temple and cheek volume. As your body ages, small amounts of fat in the cheeks are lost. Over time, this loss of fat can cause the cheeks and temple to sag leading to more noticeable smile lines. Other contributing factors include decreased collagen production in the skin and things like sun exposure, changes in weight, and smoking.
Nasolabial Fold Filler Before & After
Rejuvenate Your Face with Nasolabial Fold Fillers
An excellent non-surgical option for reducing the appearance of nasolabial folds (NLF) are dermal fillers injections. Hyaluronic fillers like Juvederm®, Revance® RHA, and Versa® or Ca++ based Restylane®, are perfect for treating nasolabial folds as they can both add instant volume to the face and stimulate the production of collagen in the skin. This provides noticeable results right away as well as long-lasting benefits. The injections are made around each cheek. However, sometimes we suggest injecting fillers in the temple area or under the eyes in the Tear trough area to decrease the fold. And other times you may need a bit of both, filler in the temples and in the NLF.
Recovery and Results
The injection process is a non-surgical in-office procedure. Some dermal fillers contain lidocaine and a topical numbing solution can be applied to make the process as comfortable as possible. There is no lengthy recovery period following the injection process. There may be some slight bruising, redness, and swelling around the injection sites.
Nasolabial fold filler injections can last for around six months to two years based on factors like the type of dermal filler used for the treatment. Once the results of the treatment begin to fade, additional follow-up treatment can be performed to maintain your results.

The cost of your nasolabial fold filler treatment in Boston will be based on the type of dermal filler used, the amount needed to properly treat the area, and other factors.
