Nasolabial Fold Correction

The lines that run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth are known as nasolabial folds, and at Facethetics Skin Clinic, we know that they can give the illusion of being older or exhausted. In order to revitalize the midface area, smooth out wrinkles, and restore volume—all of which contribute to a more youthful and refreshed appearance—we provide nasolabial fold correction treatments. Whether you’re looking for modest enhancements or have mild to moderate nasolabial folds bothering you, our expert practitioners can create a customized treatment plan to meet your individual needs.

What are Nasolabial Folds?

The lines that run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth are called nasolabial folds, sometimes referred to as laugh lines or smile lines. Age, sun exposure, heredity, and facial expressions are some of the causes that cause these creases to deepen and become more noticeable with time. Although nasolabial folds are a normal aspect of aging, they can make a person appear older and less vibrant, which is why many people seek treatments to make them less noticeable.

Procedure

Our nasolabial fold correction procedure at Facethetics Skin Clinic is performed by experienced practitioners trained in advanced injectable techniques. Here’s what you can expect during your treatment:

1. Consultation: You will speak with one of our practitioners about your expectations, worries, and aesthetic goals prior to the procedure. To choose the best course of action for you, we’ll evaluate your skin quality, facial architecture, and nasolabial folds.

2. Preparation:To help with pain management, the treatment region will be cleaned, and a topical numbing lotion may be administered. Our practitioner will also mark particular injection locations along the nasolabial folds to help with dermal filler placement.

3. Injection of Dermal Fillers:To add volume, smooth out wrinkles, and enhance facial contour, our practitioner will inject dermal fillers into the nasolabial folds using a small needle or cannula. The fillers are positioned carefully to replace lost volume and give the face a more youthful, revitalized appearance.

4. Sculpting and Molding:Following the filler injections, our practitioner will massage and shape the gel to blend in with surrounding tissues and improve facial harmony. This will produce results that are natural-looking and guarantee ideal symmetry and proportion.

5. Assessment and Touch-Ups: Following the completion of the initial injections, our practitioner will evaluate the outcome and do any touch-ups or adjustments that are required to further refine the appearance of the nasolabial folds. To get the desired result, this can involve adding more filler or reshaping existing filler.

6. Aftercare: It is typical to have mild swelling, bruising, or pain in the treated area after the treatment; these side effects normally go away in a few days. You will receive aftercare instructions from our practitioner to help minimize discomfort and encourage the best possible healing outcome.

Benefits

  • Smoothing of Wrinkles: Nasolabial fold correction treatments smooth out wrinkles and fine lines, restoring a more youthful and refreshed appearance to the midface area.
  • Restoration of Volume: By adding volume to the nasolabial folds, dermal fillers help to restore lost volume and improve facial contour, resulting in a fuller and more rejuvenated appearance.
  • Enhanced Facial Harmony: By addressing nasolabial folds, these treatments enhance facial harmony and balance, creating a more symmetrical and proportionate facial profile.
  • Natural-Looking Results: When performed by skilled practitioners, nasolabial fold correction treatments produce natural-looking results that enhance your features without looking overdone or artificial.

Side Effects

While nasolabial fold correction treatments are generally safe, some potential side effects may occur, including:

  • Temporary Swelling and Bruising: Mild swelling and bruising may occur at the injection sites, but these side effects typically subside within a few days.
  • Discomfort: Some individuals may experience mild discomfort or tenderness in the treated area following the procedure, which can be alleviated with over-the-counter pain medication and cold compresses.

Aftercare

To promote optimal healing and maximize the longevity of your results, it’s essential to follow these aftercare guidelines:

  • Avoid Pressure: Avoid applying pressure to the treated area and refrain from touching or massaging the nasolabial folds for at least 24 to 48 hours following the procedure to allow the fillers to settle properly.
  • Limit Alcohol and Exercise: Avoid consuming alcohol and strenuous exercise for at least 24 hours after the procedure to minimize the risk of swelling and bruising.
  • Follow-Up Appointment: Schedule a follow-up appointment with our practitioner to assess your results and address any concerns or touch-up needs.
