Laugh Lines

Notice your laugh lines (nose to mouth lines) are becoming deeper? The lines that frequently appear between the corners of the mouth and the nose are called nasolabial folds, also referred to as laugh lines or smile lines, and they are caused by collagen production that is declining and volume loss.

This is due to changes in facial volume and fat distribution. As we age the fat pads on the cheeks lessen and lose support.

They descend downwards and deepen the folds around the cheeks.

The most common treatment for nasolabial folds is with dermal fillers. Dermal Filler is injected into the nasolabial fold region gently lifting up and softening the appearance of the fold. The procedure itself takes around 20 minutes. Injectable fillers are generally not painful. Results of dermal filler injections can be appreciated immediately and can last for up to 6 months before the product is absorbed by the body.

Smile lines are often treated alongside other areas, please get in touch today for further information.
