Taking Care Of Your Nasolabial Folds: All You Need To Know
As we age, our skin loses collagen and elasticity, which can cause the formation of wrinkles and lines. One of the most common areas for these to appear is around the mouth, in what is known as nasolabial folds.
Seasonal changes can also impact the nasolabial folds in a number of ways. For example, colder temperatures can cause the skin to dry out, making wrinkles and lines more pronounced. In addition, wind and sun exposure can also lead to premature aging of the skin in this area.
Nasolabial fold filler is a cosmetic treatment that can help to temporarily reduce the appearance of these lines. This type of filler is made from hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body. In this blog post, we will discuss everything you need to know about nasolabial folds filler, including how it works, its benefits, and how we can help you look young and fresh-faced all year round!
What is nasolabial folds filler?
Nasolabial fold filler is a type of dermal filler that is used to fill in these wrinkles and give the skin a smoother, more youthful appearance. There are many different types of dermal fillers on the market today, so it’s important to choose one that is right for your specific needs. Your doctor can help you determine which type of nasolabial fold filler is best for you.
The most common type of nasolabial fold filler is made from hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps to keep skin hydrated and plump. This makes it an ideal choice for filling in wrinkles and fine lines.
Other types of nasolabial fold fillers include those made from collagen, fat, or synthetic materials. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages, so again, it’s important to consult with your doctor to determine which one works for you.
Many people are scared of experiencing pain or discomfort when injecting the nasolabial folds filler, but the procedure is almost painless. Nasolabial fillers treatment is a simple and straightforward process, taking less than your lunch time.
What are the benefits of nasolabial folds filler?
The main benefit of nasolabial fold filler is that it can help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth and nose area. Without having to undergo any invasive surgery, you can experience an overall ‘lift’ of the skin. And since it’s a non-surgical method, there’s almost no recovery time so you can have time for other activities. It can also help to add volume to the lips and cheeks, giving you a more youthful appearance.
How does the nasolabial folds filler work?
Prior to beginning your procedure, we will discuss your end goals and answer any questions you may have about nasolabial folds filler.
In the nasolabial areas of your face, an expert aesthetician will inject a dermal filler containing hyaluronic acid once you are comfortable and ready. Numbing cream might not be needed since the nasolabial fold area has less sensitivity. We will inject at different points based on the symmetry and anatomy of your face.
For example, if you want more volume in the lower half of your cheeks, we will inject it in that specific area to ensure a positive outcome.
The procedure can take between 30 minutes and an hour, and results usually last between six and twelve months.
Best fillers for nasolabial folds/laugh lines
There are many different types of fillers available, and each has its own advantages and disadvantages. The best filler for you will depend on your individual needs and goals. Some of the most popular fillers for nasolabial folds include
Hyaluronic acid fillers: Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps to keep skin hydrated and plump. Fillers made from hyaluronic acid are very popular because they are effective at filling in wrinkles and creases, and they are safe for most people.

Alternative ways to improve nasolabial folds or laugh lines
We understand that not everyone is suited for derma fillers. If you are seeking for a non-invasive treatment but still yield desirable results for your laugh lines, consider having these:
- Sculptra® treatment: Biodegradable and biocompatible, this treatment gradually replaces lost collagen to correct skin creases, wrinkles, folds and scars, and to slow down the aging of the skin.
- Laser treatment: Not only does laser treatment improve the texture of the skin, it also stimulates collagen production which helps in tightening and providing skin with structure.
- Microneedling: This is a cosmetic procedure where dermatologists use the body’s natural healing response to encourage collagen production with a sterilized needle.
