AKA - NASOLABIAL FOLDS
WHAT CAUSES NASOLABIAL FOLDS?
Nasolabial folds are lines or 'folds' which form alongside the bottom edges of the nose and extend downwards towards the corners of the mouth. Whilst we all have some form of nasolabial folds, in the more youthful face they remain 'high' and 'short', however, as we get older they begin to crease, deepen, and extend downwards. They are often the first noticeable sign of ageing.
The cause of nasolabial folds is multi-factoral, and involves atrophic changes in the skin, soft tissue, skeletal muscle, and ligaments which, alongside gravity, result in a deepened and 'sad', 'droopy' appearance to the face.
Younger faces typically have well defined cheeks composed of fat pads that sit in specific compartments. However, as we age, the ligaments supporting these fat pockets 'weaken', causing the volume of the cheek to shift downwards. This redistribution of existing fat, coupled with loss of volume due to the ageing process, results in flatter contours - a less well defined cheek, the deepening of the nasolabial folds, and eventually turning the youthful, 'triangular shaped' face into one of a more upside down triangle.
Restoring this volume whilst improving the nasolabial folds themselves can literally knock ten years off the face.
HOW CAN NASOLABIAL FOLDS BE TREATED?
HYALURONIC ACID DERMAL FILLERS are a very effective treatment for the appearance of nasolabial folds. The results are instant and last 6 - 9 months.
SCULPTRA is also very effective for reducing the appearance of nasolabial folds, and is an option for those who want a longer result. the results of SCULPTRA, once achieved, lasts between 2 - 3 years. However, the effect is progressive and can take several weeks.
A great option for those who want an INSTANT result whilst also receiving the benefit of a longer lasting, progressive improvement for 12 - 18 months is RADIESSE. RADIESSE works instantly like dermal fillers, but also lasts longer just like Sculptra.
