Smile Lines / Nasolabial Folds / Laugh Lines

Have you noticed shadows cast down on your face create a deep triangle to the left and right of your nose to the corners of the mouth, leaving the appearance of a fold around your mouth? This can occur as early as the mid-20s, or even earlier for those with a predisposed facial structure.

What are Nasolabial Folds?

Nasolabial Folds are grooves or lines found on either side of the mouth. They often extend from the sides of the nose and curve around the mouth and become more conspicuous when a person smiles. These often leave us looking gaunt and creating a more hollow, aged appearance in the face.

Why Do I have Laugh Lines?

There are a variety of reasons that bring about nasolabial folds. That said, the primary cause of laugh lines is the natural process of the skin becoming saggier and thinner with age. As we get older, almost everyone will develop nasolabial folds to varying degrees of severity. Also, certain lifestyle factors can make smile lines worse. These include overexposure to sunlight, sudden weight loss and smoking.

How do I fix Smile Lines?

If you have deep nasolabial folds, restoring volume to the skin underneath with dermal filler is an excellent option. Fillers can smooth out the hollow and saggy appearance of nasolabial folds and create a plumper, more youthful look.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you get rid of Nasolabial Folds without surgery

You don’t have to turn to surgical procedures like mid-face lifts to rectify laugh lines. Dermal filler injections are an effective and non-surgical intervention that can target nasolabial folds. But there are many different types of dermal fillers. That’s why working with a skilled practitioner will ensure the correct type of filler is used depending on how deep your nasolabial folds are. If you want the best results, we can’t insist enough on the importance of finding a board-certified expert who understands the nuances of facial anatomy.

How do I know if I need treatment for my Laugh Lines?

While laugh lines often pose no health risk, many people don’t like their appearance. Mild nasolabial folds are noticeable under an overhead light, while severe cases will be noticeable even with front cast light. If you feel conscious about the appearance of your nasolabial folds, an assessment carried out by a skilled doctor can help determine the best treatment option. It’s also important to note that the fold itself can become a problem area with blocked pores where the skin hangs over.

How do Dermal Fillers soften the appearance of Nasolabial Folds?

Dermal filler can be used to subtly and naturally plump up the area below the nasolabial folds and fill in the missing volume in order to drastically decrease or completely erase the appearance of the nasolabial folds and lines. Especially fillers made with Hyaluronic Acid, which has the incredible ability to attract and store moisture in the skin, helping to make the skin look healthy, flexible and firm.
