Naso Labial Folds

The best treatment for naso-labial folds is by the use of dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are injectable material made of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in our body. The function of hyaluronic acid naturally in the body is to maintain the skin’s volume and hydration. It is appropriate, therefore, that fillers made from such materials are the products used to plump up, or fill in hollows and creases in the skin in areas which lose fat or internal shape with normal ageing.

Naso Labial Folds Treatments.

Naso- labial folds are the lines that run from each side of the nose, down to the corners of the mouth. These naso -labial folds develop with age and exposure to the sun resulting in a loss of volume in the skin. They can have a dramatic impact on the way we look as their effect is both ageing and creates a downward turn appearance to the mouth area. Dermal fillers will plump up the furrow that is the hallmark of a naso-labial fold, and immediately rejuvenate the area.

  • How are dermal fillers administered to treat naso-labial folds?

    After assessment by one of our qualified practitioners, dermal fillers are administered by way of small injections through a fine needle, into and around the area of the naso-labial fold.

    This gives the doctor control over the volume of filler used, so as to create a natural – looking effect .

  • Is the process for Naso Labial Folds treatments painful?

    Some of the fillers used at the Clinic have inbuilt Lidocaine, an anaesthetic, to help numb the area treated so as to cause minimum discomfort.

    Other fillers do not, and so a topical anaesthetic is applied, which has the same effect. The process is comparatively quick, and the naso-labial folds are eradicated immediately.

  • How long does the effect of elimination of the naso-labial fold last, and are there any side effects?

    As these are non- permanent fillers, the effect typically should last between 6 – 12 months. Dependent on the type of filler used, some products last 12-18 months.

    Side effects are rare, given that hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring in humans, and over time, will be broken down and eliminated naturally through the body.

  • Who will perform the naso labial folds treatment?

    As with all Dermal Fillers treatments, Naso Labial Folds treatment for men and women is performed by a skin specialist who is also on hand to answer any queries you may have and supervised by Doctor Maria Gonzalez.
