Nasolabial Fold: Fix nasolabial folds and wrinkles with fillers
If you’ve spent years smiling and laughing – good for you! We love to see self confidence and the ability to enjoy life at any age. If you’re looking to find that youthful look once again, you may want to consider a nasolabial fold treatment with fillers.
How do I get rid of marionette lines?
Nasolabial folds, or marionette lines as they are often called, are the lines that extend from the outer corners of the nose down to the outer corners of the mouth. These are caused by:
- Repeated facial expressions
- Decreased skin collagen
- Age related fat reduction in the face
Although marionette lines aren’t something you can simply “get rid of,” an injectable treatment can always soften your facial features so the appearance of lines are less visible.
Nasolabial fold fillers
Fillers are used in the nasolabial folds to smooth and soften the appearance of wrinkles. Used in conjunction with skin care protocols, we can restore lost facial volume, improve skin health and youthfulness, and reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds and wrinkles.
Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid and is primarily indicated for the treatment of mild-to-moderate lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic Acid or HA is produced naturally by the body and binds with water to create a plump, youthful look. As we age, HA production slows. By reintroducing HA, in the form of Juvederm, into the area, we see immediate results with long-term benefits.
The process of injecting fillers
During your injectable treatment, your aesthetic provider will apply a numbing cream to increase patient comfort, followed by an injection from a small needle or cannula. Patients experience very little discomfort during this procedure.
A consultation with our provider is a great opportunity to have your questions answered, discuss your concerns as well as the products that may be used to achieve your desired results. The treatment may take around 30 minutes to allow the numbing cream to take effect. Just as there are no two faces that are the same, there are no treatments that are exactly the same. Most patients say the result of their filler treatment remains visible for 9 to 18 months.
