How to treat nasolabial folds?
Nasolabial folds are the lines that extend from the outer corners of the nose down to the outer corners of the mouth. Marionette lines are vertical lines that extend from the outer corners of the mouth down to the jawline on either side of the chin. Both of these lines are caused by repeated facial expressions, reduced production of collagen and age-related fat reduction in the face. Although, age, sun damage, and smoking are the most common causes of deepening nasolabial folds.
The dermal filler is injected under the skin in the nasolabial fold area or the upper cheek area to give the cheeks a lift, making the nasolabial folds less noticeable. Aesthetic professionals and Doctors inject fillers into the skin around the cheek area. This adds volume to the area and lifts the skin. What type of filler is used and how much is used depends on the severity of the fold lines. The most common fillers are made from hyaluronic acid. Once the filler is evenly distributed to the area it will promote a softer and more natural look to the face. The procedure is non invasive and can be over in 5-20 minutes. Dermal fillers cannot make nasolabial folds disappear, they can only make them less pronounced. The cost of the treatment depends on the type of filler that is used. Although, on average the cost can vary between $495-$895.
