Nasolabial Folds

Nasolabial folds are the lines which run from your nose to your mouth.

As we age, we will almost all begin to notice the appearance of nasolabial lines, but thankfully through skilful use of dermal fillers we are able to plump the skin around this area to help lessen this tell tale sign of ageing. 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.

At VIVA Skin Clinics, we are proud to use Juvederm Fillers, one of the safest and most renowned brands.

The application of dermal fillers to treat nasolabial folds is administered through a series of small injections. These are typically quite comfortable, although some people may experience mild levels of discomfort if they do not take well to injections. This treatment is rarely described as painful, and is usually perfectly tolerable. In the instance where a patient is particularly sensitive, we would use a cream to numb the area before treatment.

As with any injectable treatment, there is a possibility of some minor side effects. Most commonly, these may include: bruising, swelling, redness, tenderness, itching and sensitivity at the point of application. Dr. Rupert will carry out a full consultation prior to treatment at which time he will assess your suitability and discuss any potential side effects

We will discuss your desired outcomes at your pre-treatment consultation. The aim of treating nasolabial folds is to plump and fill the area, whilst lifting and tightening the skin to reduce any hollows that have appeared as a result of ageing. As nasolabial folds are a common sign of ageing, you will notice immediately post treatment that you appear refreshed and more youthful, although the result will be subtle and natural – leaving people thinking you just look naturally great!

Dr. Rupert is a highly skilled injector as well as having advanced facial anatomical knowledge and a creative eye. Your safety is of primary concern at VIVA Skin Clinics, and we work to ensure that you are safe and comfortable throughout your treatment and beyond. We only use the most effective and safest FDA approved products at VIVA Skin Clinics. To find out more about the Juvederm range, please click here
