What the treatment can do

Sagging skin and deep smile lines a reminder of ageing? Nasolabial folds are a very common concern we see daily in our clinic. Deep nasolabial folds make you look older and saggy, and take away your youthful facial contours. We use dermal fillers to treat nasolabial folds, with immediate results.

Nasolabial fold fillers restore volume and support you skin. This softens your folds, and gives a lifted look. After nasolabial fold fillers, you’ll look refreshed, and most importantly, natural. We often combine nasolabial fold treatment with cheek fillers, for a balanced facial rejuvenation.

The team at Cosmetic Connection are here to help treat your smile lines. With precision and expertise, we use nasolabial fold fillers to help you look naturally refreshed. Get in touch for advice, and trust us to design a personalised treatment plan to treat your nasolabial folds effectively.

    Nasolabial folds are the deep lines that extend from beside your nostrils towards your mouth corners.

    They are sometimes called smile lines because they are more pronounced when smiling.

    We can treat nasolabial folds by restoring volume and smoothing the fold with dermal fillers. The general approach to treating nasolabial folds with fillers is to focus on the:

    • Cheeks with cheek filler to add projection and support above the fold
    • The pyriform fossa (a space beside the nostrils) to support the fold
    • The nasolabial fold itself

    Nasolabial fold filler adds support to the fold. This adds projection, reducing the depth of the nasolabial folds.

    Nasolabial folds are caused by:

    • Very full cheeks
    • A small upper jaw bone
    • Sagging skin
    • Facial volume loss

    Nasolabial folds become more pronounced with age as the facial tissues sag and become hollow.

    You can consider getting nasolabial fold filler whenever you see the lines begin to develop.

    Most commonly, people start to develop nasolabial folds in their early 30’s as their face begins to lose volume with age.

    People in their 20’s may also consider nasolabial fold filler if they have the lines due to genetics or significant weight loss.

    After your consultation, we clean, mark, and numb the skin around your nasolabial folds.

    Once numb, we use tiny needles or a blunt-tipped cannula to carefully place nasolabial fold filler.

    After injection, we mould the filler smooth.

    Nasolabial fold fillers take 10-20 minutes to perform.

    When performed carefully with strong numbing and premium fillers that contain local anaesthetic, nasolabial fold fillers have minimal discomfort.

    Most people need 1-2mls of dermal filler to treat their nasolabial folds.

    You will see an immediate result from nasolabial fold filler. Allow 1-2 days for swelling to subside, and 1-2 weeks for the filler to settle.

    Nasolabial fold fillers last 12-24 months on average.

    You can increase the longevity by having regular maintenance treatments.

    Prepare for nasolabial fold fillers with these steps:

    • Cease all supplements 1 week before your treatment (unless taking for medical reasons)
    • Avoid excessive alcohol for 24 hours before your treatment
    • Attend your appointment without makeup

    After nasolabial fold fillers, you’ll see an immediate improvement in your nasolabial folds. There may be slight redness and swelling, which resolve in 1-2 days.

    You can do light exercise immediately after nasolabial fold fillers. Wait 24 hours before intense exercise to minimise swelling.

    When performed by a qualified medical professional, nasolabial fold fillers are categorised as a low-risk treatment.

    The most common side effects from nasolabial fold fillers are mild redness and swelling that resolve in 1-2 days.

    Very rare risks of nasolabial fold filler include infection and skin injury.

    The following groups are not suitable for nasolabial fold fillers:

    • Aged under 18
    • Currently pregnant or breastfeeding
    • Those with severe sagging of the nasolabial folds
    • People with unrealistic expectations about what can be achieved with nasolabial fold fillers
