Nasolabial Folds


Nasolabial folds

They are sometimes referred to as smile lines, because they look deeper when you are smiling, but smiling is not the real cause of the problem. Dermatologists and Medical Aesthetic Practitioners refer to them as “nasolabial folds”, which simply means folds that run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth or lips.
These deep lines can be a dead give away of your age but now can be eradicated  in an instant. The procedure uses dermal fillers to fill in the crease and plump the skin to give it a youthful glow. This is an affordable treatment that doesn’t take long to administer and the effects are immediately visible.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does the procedure involve?

Our Doctors will apply a topical anaesthetic cream prior to injecting the Hyaluronic Acid to ensure treatment is without discomfort. The procedure involves injecting filler into the lines that run from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth.

When will I see results?

The results are evident almost immediately. There may be slight swelling over the next 24 – 48 hours which will then settle. Over the following weeks, your own body lays down collagen around the Hyaluronic Acid filler and provides further subtle enhancement.

How long will the effects last?

Dermal fillers typically last between 6 – 9 months.

What are the side effects?

You may notice slight redness and tenderness after the procedure but this is usually transient. Our doctors will apply a pre/post repair cream to the treated area and will advise you to continue with this cream for several days after treatment.
