The naso-labial folds are the lines from the nose to the corner of the mouth. Some people have deeper folds either because they have lost weight or because as they get older, the skin starts to become less firm and therefore the cheeks are not holding up any more.
A proper diagnosis is carried out in order to determine the correct treatment. Usually the folds can be treated with an injection of fillers directly into the fold area but sometimes and injection of fillers into the cheek area above can be beneficial.
Photos are taken prior to the treatment and various options and desired effects are discussed at the pre-treatment consultation. On the day of treatment a strong numbing cream is applied and then the filler is injected. A dental block can be performed if desired. The filler injection takes about five minutes.
Naso-labial folds are usually the easiest and least painful dermal filler treatment to have. Bruising is minimal, if any at all. The treatment result is immediate and you are good to go straight away.
