Nasolabial Fold Filler
Nasolabial Fold Filler
The nasolabial fold is one of the first telltale signs of ageing. It appears as a deep line between the upper lip and cheek when someone smiles. As we age and we lose the fat on our faces, lines may appear. The more fat we lose the deeper the lines become and in worse cases they can appear as folds. But there are treatments to make it go away like nasolabial fold filler.
How can nasolabial fold filler help?
Nasolabial fold filler is a great way to reduce the appearance of these lines, creating a smoother and younger look. The dermal fillers work by introducing hyaluronic acid under the skin at the dermis level, plumping up this area, and making it appear tighter, fuller and smoother for longer periods of time.
What is the best filler for nasolabial folds?
Dermal fillers are specifically designed for each of the areas treated. Nasolabial fold filler treats an area that moves as we smile and eat. Therefore, it needs to be soft enough to not affect our expression but strong enough not to break down so quickly. Our doctors recommend medium-thickness dermal fillers for the nasolabial folds. Depending on the dermal filler used, the results can last anywhere from twelve to eighteen months.

Frequently asked questions
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectable treatments used to add volume to the lips. The most common type of filler is made from hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in the human body that helps keep skin hydrated and plump. When HA is injected it adds volume and definition to give them a youthful look.
How painful are dermal fillers?
The pain level will vary depending on the type of dermal filler being used and the area being treated, but dermal fillers generally cause some minor discomfort. Most patients describe dermal fillers as just uncomfortable, with a burning or biting sensation when the filler is injected into the tissue. Fortunately, we offer numbing creams or local anesthetics, which can help minimize any discomfort experienced during dermal fillers.
Are there any risks involved?
Like any medical procedure, there are some risks associated with dermal filler injections—namely bruising, swelling, redness and pain at the injection site. However, these side effects should subside within a few days after treatment. Lastly, it's essential that you find a reputable cosmetic doctor who has experience administering dermal fillers so that you get optimal results with minimal risk involved.

What to avoid after dermal fillers?
After dermal fillers treatment, it is important to follow the aftercare instructions provided by your doctor. Generally, it is best to AVOID:
- Touching the area or applying any make up for at least 3 hours
- Hot drinks or enviroments such as baths, steam or sauna for at least a day
- Drinking alcohol or strenuous exercise for the first day
- direct sun exposure for the following week
- Additionally, it is advised not to massage or apply pressure to the injection site in order to give the filler enough time to settle and achieve desired effects.
How can you make the reults last?
Dermal fillers are a great way to look energetic and refreshed, but many people want to make their dermal fillers last as long as possible. One of the best things you can do to extend the life of dermal fillers is to take preventative measures, such as:
- staying hydrated
- wearing sunscreen
- avoiding cigarettes and excessive alcohol.
You should also visit your doctor for regular follow-up appointments. This will help them monitor the dermal filler’s progress and provide assistance if there are any issues. Additionally, it is important to set realistic expectations about results and timelines as it does take time for dermal fillers to fully set in. Taking all these steps will enable dermal fillers to last longer than originally anticipated.
