What Is The Best Way To Treat Nasolabial folds?

Find out how to get rid of nasolabial folds and marionette lines with dermal filler treatment. Discover what causes those pesky smile lines and how you can prevent them.

What are nasolabial folds?


Nasolabial folds are the indentation lines on either side of the mouth that extend from the edge of the nose to the mouth’s outer corners. They become more prominent and deepen as we age and may also sag. Some people develop wrinkles next to the nasolabial folds, which may be more visible during smiling. These are often referred to as smile lines.

Nasolabial folds, which are made of dense bundles of fibrous tissue and muscle, are a natural result of ageing, however they may become more noticeable due to a variety of factors, including:

  • Sun exposure, which damages the skin, thus causing wrinkles and thinning the skin
  • Loss of collagen with age, making the skin look weak and thin
  • Loss of fat, which can make the cheeks and nearby regions appear saggy
  • Frequent smiling

Other factors that play a role in nasolabial folds worsening are:

  • Smoking and an unhealthy lifestyle
  • Frequent exposure to environmental pollutants
  • Rapid weight loss or frequent fluctuations in weight


Dermal Filler for Nasolabial Folds


Dermal fillers are implants made of hyaluronic acid that are placed just under the skin. 

By adding volume and plumping out either the fold itself, or the area above the fold to lift the skin, we can smooth out the cavity and restore lost volume, leaving you looking incredible with a subtle, naturally refreshed appearance. 

Dermal fillers cannot make nasolabial folds completely disappear, but they can make them less visible. They can also be used to help nearby skin look fuller and more youthful, for example if the lower face could do with some lifting, this is the perfect treatment for that.
