Nasolabial fold filler Melbourne
Nasolabial fold filler is a treatment available in Melbourne that improves the appearance of the grooves that run down and outwards from the corners of your nose. By softening the nasolabial folds, the appearance of sagging is reduced, your smile can look more attractive, and you can look refreshed.
Dermal filler improves the appearance of nasolabial folds in Melbourne by supporting the skin. It is a popular treatment for people in Melbourne with naturally deep folds, and for nasolabial folds that evolve with age.
How it works
Are deep smile lines and sagging skin bothering you? Nasolabial folds are the creases extending from nose the mouth corners, and are a very common concern for people in Melbourne. Nasolabial folds give you an aged, saggy appearance. Dermal filler injections to the nasolabial folds are a quick, convenient and no downtime solution for both genetic and age-related nasolabial folds.
Dermal filler adds support to the overlying skin, reducing the appearance of your nasolabial folds. This gives you a refreshed, lifted look, and a softer, more attractive smile.
The medical professionals here at Cosmetic Connection Melbourne are trained to perform an in-depth assessment of your nasolabial folds. They will advise on your suitability for nasolabial fold filler, as well as on any other treatments that can complement your result.

- Reduces the appearance of smile lines, giving the face a more lifted appearance

Nasolabial folds, also known as smile lines, can be treated in a combination of ways.
Excluding surgery, the most effective way to improve nasolabial folds is with dermal filler or collagen stimulating injections. These restore volume to the mid face, supporting and directly camouflaging the nasolabial folds.
The areas that can be treated with cosmetic injectables to reduce nasolabial folds include:
- The cheeks with cheek filler to add projection and support the skin above the fold
- The pyriform fossa (a space beside the nostrils, just shallow to the upper jaw bone) to restore or enhance supportive volume on the upper jaw
- The skin of the nasolabial fold itself to soften their appearance
After cleaning, marking and numbing the skin of your nasolabial folds, tiny needles or blunt-tipped cannulae will be used to precisely place dermal filler beneath the skin.
The filler will then be moulded smooth, the skin cleaned again, and the treatment will be finished.
When performed correctly and with the appropriate use of anaesthetic, there is minimal discomfort when having nasolabial fold fillers.
At Cosmetic Connection Melbourne, your comfort is one of our highest priorities. We use tiny needles, strong numbing, and premium dermal fillers that are mixed with local anaesthetic. This ensures your nasolabial fold treatment has almost no discomfort.
The result from nasolabial fold dermal filler is seen immediately.
It is important to let treatment-related swelling to resolve, and to allow 2-4 weeks for the filler to settle before assessing the final result.
Dermal fillers usually last 12-24 months when used in the nasolabial folds. Some people may need more than one session to get the most stable result, and the result can last longer when you’ve had more than one treatment.
There are a few steps to take before having nasolabial fold fillers in Melbourne to optimise your result, and lower the risk of side effects. They include:
- Cease all anti-inflammatories, aspirin, herbal supplements, fish oil, krill oil, glucosamine and vitamin E 1 week before your treatment (unless you have been advised to take these by a medical practitioner)
- Avoid excessive alcohol for 24 hours before your treatment
- Attend your appointment without makeup
After having nasolabial fold fillers in Melbourne, you may notice slight redness, swelling and tenderness at the injected area. This is normal and will resolve quickly in a few days.
The filler will take 2-4 weeks to fully soften and settle, at which time you can assess the final result.
When performed correctly by an appropriately qualified medical professional nasolabial fold fillers are categorised as a low-risk treatment.
Visiting an experienced, doctor-led cosmetic clinic in Melbourne is the best way to ensure that your nasolabial fold fillers are performed as safely as possible.
How to treat nasolabial folds and smile lines with dermal filler injections
Nasolabial folds, sometimes called smile lines, are the grooves that extend down and out from the nostrils to the mouth corners. Nasolabial folds can be genetic, due to full cheeks or a small upper jaw, or related to ageing
There are two approaches to treating nasolabial folds with dermal filler injections. Firstly, dermal fillers can be placed in the deeper tissue layers beneath the nasolabial folds to add support to the upper jaw. Secondly, a conservative amount of dermal filler can be injected directly beneath the skin’s surface of the nasolabial fold.
The fillers can be placed into the nasolabial folds and deeper structures using either small needles, blunt-tipped cannulae, or a combination of both. The specific technique used will depend on the specific goal of the treatment and your unique anatomy.
The benefits of treating the nasolabial folds with dermal fillers in Melbourne include:
- Non-invasive, no downtime treatment with immediate result
- Convenient option taking only 10-20 minutes on average
- Achieves natural yet noticeable improvements in the appearance of nasolabial folds and sagging skin, helping you to look refreshed and contoured.
Nasolabial fold dermal filler is a great option for people in Melbourne who want a quick and convenient improvement in their appearance.
