NOSE-TO-MOUTH LINES

AKA - NASOLABIAL FOLDS

WHAT CAUSES NASOLABIAL FOLDS?

NASOLABIAL FOLDS ARE LINES OR 'FOLDS' WHICH FORM ALONGSIDE THE NOSE AND CONTINUE DOWNWARDS TOWARDS THE CORNERS OF THE MOUTH. OFTEN THE FIRST NOTABLE SIGN OF AGEING, THEY START AS A LIGHT CREASE & OVER TIME PROGRESS TO DEEPER WRINKLES & WELL-DEFINED FOLDS.

THE CAUSE OF NASO-LABIAL FOLDS IS MULTI-FACTORAL, INVOLVING ATROPHIC CHANGES IN THE SKIN & SOFT TISSUE, SKELETAL, LIGAMENTS, & GRAVITY THAT OCCUR WITH AGE.

YOUNGER FACES TYPICALLY HAVE WELL-DEFINED CHEEKS COMPOSED OF FAT WITH SPECIFIC COMPARTMENTS. AS WE AGE, THE LIGAMENTS SUPPORTING EACH POCKET OF FAT WEAKEN, CAUSING THE VOLUME OF THE CHEEKS TO MOVE DOWNWARDS. THIS REDISTRIBUTION, COUPLED WITH LOSS OF FAT, RESULTS IN FLATTER CONTOURS, TRANSITIONING THE TRIANGULAR, YOUTHFUL-SHAPED FACE TO ONE OF A MORE UPSIDE-DOWN TRIANGLE.

THIS TENDS TO OCCUR WHEN AN INDIVIDUAL HITS THEIR LATE 40'S & IS A CLASSICAL HALLMARK OF THE AGEING FACE.

HOW CAN NASOLABIAL FOLDS BE TREATED?

DERMAL FILLERS ARE AN EFFECTIVE TREATMENT FOR THE APPEARANCE OF NASO-LABIAL FOLDS. HYALURONIC ACID (HA) FILLERS PROVIDE AN IMMEDIATE EFFCT & LAST 9-12 MONTHS.

 

SCULPTRA - POLY-L-LACTIC ACID (PLLA) - IS ALSO VERY EFFECTIVE FOR THE TREATMENT OF NASO-LABIAL FOLDS. EFFECTS TAKE A LITTLE LONGER TO BE SEEN BUT LAST 2-3 YEARS.

 

RADIESSE OFFERS THE BENEFITS OF BOTH DERMAL FILLERS & SCULPTRA, BY PROVIDING BOTH AN IMMEDIATE EFFECT WHILST ALSO IMPROVING THE APPEARANCE OVER TIME.

PROFHILO IS ANOTHER OPTION FOR THE TREATMENT OF NOSE-TO-MOUTH LINES (NASOLABIAL FOLDS). ALTHOUGH PROFHILO CONTAINS HYALURONIC ACID SIMILAR TO A DERMAL FILLER, PROFHILO IS NOT A 'FILLER' AND HAS BEEN DESCRIBED AS A 'CURE' FOR WRINKLES RATHER THAN 'FILLING' THEM.

CONTRARY TO POPULAR BELIEF - AND OFTEN WHAT THE PATIENTS ASKS FOR! - NASO-LABIAL FOLDS ARE RARELY CORRECTED BY DERMAL FILLER PLACEMENT WITHIN THE FOLDS THEMSELVES. THIS OFTEN RESULTS IN AN UNNATURAL 'CONVEX' APPEARANCE IN THE MOUTH AREA, ESPECIALLY IF THE CLIENT HAS AN OVERALL LOSS OF VOLUME 

RATHER, DERMAL FILLER (HA) IS PLACED INTO THE FACE WHERE THE VOLUME HAS BEEN LOST - MOST OFTEN, THE CHEEKS. PLUMPING & AUGMENTING THE CHEEKS RETURNS THE FACE TO ITS NATURALLY YOUTHFUL SHAPE, THEREBY 'LIFTING' THE NASO-LABIAL FOLDS & IMPROVING THEIR APPEARANCE.

HOWEVER, THE CHOICE OF  DERMAL FILLER  IS HIGHLY INDIVIDUAL, & FOLLOWING CONSULTATION OUR MEDICAL AESTHETIC PROFESSIONALS WILL DISCUSS WHAT IS BEST FOR YOU.

TYPICALLY, NASOLABIAL CORRECTION REQUIRES AT LEAST 1.0ML OF DERMAL FILLER (HA) FOR ANY NOTICEABLE DIFFERENCE. 

RADIESSE COMES IN EITHER 0.75ML OR 1.5ML.

IN THE CASE OF SCULPTRA, A COURSE OF 3 SESSIONS ARE RECOMMENDED. NOTE THAT SCULPTRA IS NOT SUITABLE FOR PEOPLE WITH AUTO IMMUNE DISORDERS.

IN ALL CASES, A FULL CONSULTATION WILL BE CARRIED OUT WHICH INVOLVES ADDRESSING THE MAIN AREA(S) OF CONCERN & HOW THEY CAN BE IMPROVED IN ORDER TO FIND THE BEST TREATMENT FOR YOU.
