Your Face Can Reflect The Age You Feel

For many people, the heavy lines between the nose and the mouth, commonly referred to as nasolabial folds, can be a prominent way aging manifests in the face. Also referred to as smile lines or laugh lines, nasolabial folds are a common concern that can range from mild to severe. Fortunately, the expert team at The Spiegel Center can easily reduce their appearance and rejuvenate the beauty of your face using dermal 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. They form when you smile and laugh, but once the facial muscles relax, they soften. However, some individuals have more prominent nasolabial folds, or notice that their smile lines have become much  more noticeable as they age.

What Causes Nasolabial Folds?

Nasolabial folds can develop and become more severe over time for a variety of reasons. They tend to form as a result of a loss 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.

Rejuvenate Your Face With Nasolabial Fold Fillers

Dermal fillers are an excellent non-surgical option for reducing the appearance of nasolabial folds. Hyaluronic fillers like Juvederm®, Revance® RHA, Rastylane®, and Prollenium 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 and 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. It is common for some patients to need a bit of filler in both the temples and in the nasolabial folds.

Recovery And Results

The injection process is an 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, though 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 your age and skin quality. Once the results of the treatment begin to fade, additional follow-up treatment can be performed to maintain your initial results.

Cost And Payment Options

The cost of your nasolabial fold filler treatment is based on the amount needed to properly treat the area, and a few other factors. During your consultation, our team can let you know what the cost of your treatment will be and go over payment options that may be available to you.
