WHAT PEAU CAN DO FOR NASOLABIAL FOLDS
Dermal Fillers for Nasolabial Folds (Smile Lines)
The nasolabial folds, also known as smile lines, are the creases that run from the outer edges of the nose down to the outer edges of the mouth. These lines are often the first signs of aging resulting from a loss of or decrease in collagen, loss of fat, and a loss of elasticity and sunken skin.
The appearance of these lines can be reduced with hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers; a non-surgical approach to facial rejuvenation which requires very little downtime and causes very little discomfort.
The HA filler is injected just beneath the skin’s surface to create volume and a softer looking face; facial contours become smoother thus giving a more youthful look.
The success of this facial enhancement procedure depends on the injection technique, which varies with each type of filler, as it is both an art and a science. The physician must have a thorough understanding of HA fillers’ capabilities and limitations.
