Nasolabial folds are creases that are formed from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth. These are more prominent among people who are aging or those who have a lot of sun exposure. Certain lifestyle choices like smoking also lead to the appearance of nasolabial folds.
NASOLABIAL FOLDS FILLERS MELBOURNE
HOW ARE NASOLABIAL FOLDS CAUSED?
Nasolabial folds are the result of aging. The bone mass in the face is lost as we age, which leads to fat cells dropping down. Additionally, the lack of elastin and collagen production causes further loss of volume to the face, causing nasolabial folds.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR A NASOLABIAL FOLD FILLER?
Anyone who has visible lines or creases around the mouth and nose can get a nasolabial fold filler to reduce the signs of aging. Generally, people above the age of 40, irrespective of gender, opt for the procedure. However, people above the age of 30 have also realized the benefits of using fillers to slow down the signs of aging significantly.
Those who have visible nasolabial folds due to excessive sun exposure or smoking can also opt for the filler procedure.
If you’re unsure, getting a consultation can help you understand whether you are an eligible candidate for nasolabial filler treatment.
A nasolabial fold filler treatment is often recommended by aestheticians over other procedures. Some of the reasons why fillers are more sought after include:
Boosted collagen production: A nasolabial filler will help boost the production of collagen in and around the treated area, leading to rejuvenated skin that looks younger. Collagen boost also helps improve the texture of the skin.
Non-invasive treatment: With filler treatments being non-invasive, there is no downtime to make the procedure a stressful affair. The risks are also greatly minimised as compared to that of surgical procedures offering similar results.
Quick results: Filler procedures take hardly any time and offer instantaneous results wherein one can see the complete improvements within 48 hours after the procedure.
Nasolabial folds are generally treated by administering fillers into the fold to smoothen out the creases and give them a youthful appearance.
There is another way that aestheticians recommend for people older than 40 with deeper lines. With the skin sagging as we age, aestheticians lift up the cheeks along with injecting the nasolabial folds by using fillers to add volume to the cheeks. This not only reduces signs of wrinkles around the nose and mouth but also makes the entire face appear brighter and rejuvenated.
After a nasolabial procedure, it is normal for the treated area to have some redness, swelling, and tenderness. All of these effects subside over the next 48 hours after treatment. Bruises may also occur in some cases and will subside on their own. It is essential that you avoid vigorously rubbing your face at the treated area so that the filler does lump up under the skin.
The results of a nasolabial filler will last about 6-8 months. However, people who have had multiple sessions may see the results lasting longer. Getting follow-up procedures will also lengthen this duration.
A single session is ideal for people to see visible effects. However, in cases where the folds are deeper, additional sessions may be required. The consecutive sessions are spaced out to give the treated area time to heal. For a more effective outcome, aestheticians also recommend getting a follow-up treatment in six months following the first procedure.
