Nasolabial Folds

Nasolabial folds are the deep expression lines that form from the corners of your nose to the mouth. These creases become more prominent whenever you laugh or smile and become deeper as we age.

 

During the ageing process, our face experiences volume loss causing those folds to deepen and become more prominent even when the face is relaxed. Our Nasolabial Folds treatment uses dermal fillers to target these folds and creases, providing a refreshed and youthful image that looks both subtle and natural.

 

 

How are Nasolabial Folds treated?

At VIVA Skin Clinics, we tackle deep folds and hollows that appear in the lines between the nose and mouth with dermal fillers. Utilising a personalised treatment, we smooth out the cavity around the mouth by either plumping out the fold itself or lifting the skin above it with cheek fillers.

 

Both treatments will leave you with restored volume and a subtle, naturally refreshed appearance. With our Nasolabial Folds treatment, you can maintain a healthy and youthful appearance and get back to smiling naturally without worry.

 

We take a holistic approach to the treatment of the Nasolabial Folds and assess other areas commonly causing midface volume loss that contribute to deepening of these lines. During the consultation your practitioner will advise on other areas that may require treatment to ensure your best overall results.

Frequently Asked Questions

Nasolabial fold fillers are a well-known and extremely popular injectable treatment for tackling the signs of ageing appearing as deep nose to mouth lines. With filler we are able to subtly contour, volumise and smooth the skin in a natural way, restoring lost volume and youth to the face.

 

Dermal fillers are an injectable, hyaluronic acid substance that is administered under the skin. They can be used to restore volume-loss, create definition, enhance features and soften fine lines and wrinkles. There are a number of different filler products on the market but at VIVA Skin Clinics we choose to use FDA approved, premium products from the Juvéderm Vycross range. The Juvederm Vycross range is hyaluronic acid (HA) based and considered some of the safest products available. Juvederm fillers break down naturally over time and are non-permanent.

Dermal fillers are administered with a needle; therefore, this involves a degree of discomfort. However, we ensure this procedure is as pain-free as possible with topical anaesthetic, effective products with lidocaine and advanced injection techniques. 

 

With this area we often use a cannula to minimize patient discomfort.

Due to the nature of injectable treatments, there is a possibility of some minor side effects, most of which subside up two-four weeks after treatment. Common side effects include: 

  • Mild swelling and bumps.
  • Localised tenderness.
  • Skin blemish or bruising.
  • General sensitivity and redness.

 

Any potential side effects will be discussed during your consultation with a member of the VIVA team.   Having treated hundreds of thousands of patients in over ten years of opening our doors at VIVA, you can have peace of mind that your safety is our priority.

Initial results will be visible as soon as you leave the clinic, however, it will take two-four weeks for the filler to soften and settle under the skin for final results. The secondary effect of glowing skin will be apparent at this point as well.

Our aesthetic practitioners are medically trained and supervised by our medical director, Dr. Rupert, who has over 12 years of experience. Our clinically trained practitioners are trained regularly on the latest techniques to ensure that treatments are performed with your comfort and safety as a priority. 

 

We only use the most effective and safest FDA-approved products at VIVA Skin Clinics. Before any treatment we require a full medical consultation to understand your suitability. We would never recommend a treatment for you if we deemed it to be unsafe or dangerous, so we always keep your best interests in mind. 

Most hyaluronic acid dermal fillers tend to fall within the 6 to 18-month range, however, the expected longevity of your fillers will also vary from person to person. The general ‘rule of thumb’ when it comes to Nasolabial Folds filler longevity is 9-12 months. How much product is used will be determined on the depth of the laughter lines and severity of the case.

 

The exact longevity might change based on the volume of filler used, the precise areas being treated as well as the patient’s metabolism and lifestyle. However, our injectors will be happy to discuss specifics at your consultation.

Maintaining your dermal fillers and increasing the longevity of your results can be achieved in a few ways. To ensure that you get the most from your filler treatment we recommend a combination of the following:

  • Maintaining a healthy skincare routine, minimising exposure to UV radiation.
  • Eating a balanced diet and staying hydrated.
  • Avoiding stress, as this will accelerate the signs of ageing.
  • Follow the recommended aftercare provided by our practitioners.
  • Using medical grade skincare.
  • Attending recommended maintenance appointments. 

This is an increasingly popular and accessible treatment, ideal for patients looking to reduce laugh lines and treating ageing signs in a natural way. 

 

This treatment will be tailored to you to tackle nasolabial folds with efficiency and safety. This will provide softer and smoother skin, with increased volume around the mouth and wholly natural results.

With many different brands filling up the market, and our Clients as our top priority, we ensure to use only the safest, most premium products. This is why we at VIVA Skin Clinics are proud to use the FDA-approved JUVÉDERM® VYCROSS range, one of the most renowned brands on the market.

For Nasolabial Folds, we use JUVÉDERM VOLIFT. 

While dermal filler is a highly accessible treatment, we screen for suitability and only treat patients who are 21 years old and older. 

 

We specialise in full-face dermal fillers and have a proven method that carefully targets key anti-ageing zones, making each treatment as unique as the individual while ensuring natural looking results.
