What are Nasolabial Folds?

These are the creases that appear at both sides of your nose, and run down towards the corners of your mouth. As we age, this crease can get significantly deeper, and our skin will gradually start to lose its natural volume and plumpness in this area. 

The most common fillers are made from Hyaluronic Acid (HA)– which isn’t really an acid it’s more like a sugary jelly that occurs naturally in all of our bodies. Not all HA fillers are equal.  There are hundreds on the market ranging from £20 a tube to £200!!  Most are not medically licensed. Quality is in direct proportion to cost! 

At The Doctors Laser and Aesthetic  Clinic we have used for over 8 years the German Belotero range that we regard as the best on the market. 

With age, stress, weight loss, illness, the menopause and late pregnancy we lose supporting volume from our facial fat pads causing sagging and lining. Common that we solve a deep smile line, marionette or Jowell problem by restoring the cheek which lifts everything back up. 

It is important to assess, in person, exactly what has caused the change in your face so that an appropriate treatment can be done that will restore and respect your own facial ratios. Filler placed wrongly can make you look stupid.  Done correctly no-one should know that you have cheated the ravages of time! Less is more! 

The Belotero HA Fillers are wonderfully tolerated, last well and are completely reversible. Our emphasis is on comfort and safety so we use advanced cannula techniques that are far safer than needle injections. 

At your free of charge initial consultation we shall discuss your concerns, consider options, costs, take photos and plan a treatment regime. Old photos are always useful to see what has changed.

Causes of Prominent Nasolabial Folds

Nasolabial folds, commonly known as smile or laugh lines, are natural creases that become more pronounced with age. Several factors contribute to their prominence:

  • Ageing: Our skin loses elasticity and collagen as we age, leading to sagging and deepening these folds.
  • Facial Volume Loss: Reduced facial fat pads, often due to ageing, stress, weight loss, or illness, can cause the skin to droop, accentuating nasolabial folds.
  • Genetics: Your genetic makeup can determine how your skin ages and the extent to which nasolabial folds develop.
  • Lifestyle Factors: Sun exposure, smoking, and poor nutrition can accelerate skin ageing, making nasolabial folds more noticeable.
  • Facial Expressions: Repeated facial movements and expressions can deepen these folds over time.

Preparing for Your Treatment

Consultation and Assessment

Your journey to smoother skin begins with a comprehensive consultation. During this session, we will:

  • Discuss your aesthetic goals and concerns.
  • Assess the depth and nature of your nasolabial folds.
  • Review your medical history to ensure suitability for treatment.
  • Take photographs for a before-and-after comparison.
  • Develop a customised treatment plan, respecting your facial ratios and desired outcomes.
  • Bringing old photographs can be helpful to understand the changes in your facial structure over time.

Treatment Guidelines

To prepare for your nasolabial folds treatment, we recommend:

  • Avoiding blood-thinning medications and supplements like aspirin and fish oil a week before the procedure to reduce bruising.
  • Staying hydrated and maintaining a healthy diet.
  • Avoid excessive sun exposure to the treatment area.
  • Informing us of any skin infections or irritations near the treatment area.

Patient Feedback

I was nervous at first to switch from my previous Filler provider and go elsewhere however I had found my experience with Malcolm to be more gentle on my face. My treatment was made more comfortable by Malcolm’s assistant Helen who was present too and because of there extra care I have booked a further treatment in for next week to have my fillers!

Frequently Asked Questions

During your consultation with us, we’ll answer any questions or concerns you may have.

Different fillers work best in different areas. So, before treatment actually begins, you’re able to discuss your exact requirements with an experienced practitioner to ensure the best possible outcome is achieved. Due to the ultra-fine needle we use to inject, it’s unlikely you’ll feel much pain. But, if you’re worried, we’ll apply a local anaesthetic or numbing cream for maximum comfort.

Results will be visible almost immediately after treatment. During the first couple of days after the procedure you may experience minor bruising and swelling, especially if your lips are being treated due to the incredibly high blood supply in that area. However, any side-effects you experience will subside within a mere couple of days, resulting in your desired look with no harm or damage caused. Unfortunately, dermal fillers aren’t permanent as they’re biodegradable. This means that the body will slowly metabolise them, causing the treatment area to revert back to its original form. So, when results begin to fade, we suggest booking a top-up appointment as soon as possible to ensure you consistently maintain your desired look.
