Nasolabial lines or folds are deep creases running from both sides of the nose towards the sides of the mouth. The lines occur naturally but become deeper and more noticeable due to ageing and other factors like excessive smiling or having a big smile. Over time, the cheeks also lose fat, and this reduces its volume, resulting in deep folds.
Different kinds of therapies are available for nasolabial folds like the wrinkle therapy, but, most people consider using dermal fillers, and it is one of the first treatment options dermatologists recommend.
Nasolabial fold filler treatment involves a medical expert injecting dermal fillers to treat facial wrinkles by filling the deep folds on the sides of the nose to make the area look plump. Dermal fillers stimulate the synthesis of collagen, which is a vital protein with anti-ageing effects.
There are different types of fillers, but the most common ones for filling nasolabial folds contain hyaluronic acid, a gel-like substance produced naturally in the body. This substance helps in hydrating and firming the skin.
These fillers below contain hyaluronic acid and are FDA approved.
At our clinic, we usually use Juvederm fillers for nasolabial folds. Some other available fillers contain poly-L-lactic acid (Sculptra), or calcium hydroxylapatite instead of hyaluronic acid.
After your consultation, your clinician will inject the filler into the nasolabial folds to add volume to the area. The result will likely show immediately, and the effect of the filler may last for 6-18 months, depending on the type used.
Nasolabial fold fillers are less invasive compared to nasal surgery. The result of getting nasolabial fold fillers vary but generally, the fillers offer the following benefits.

Calcium hydroxylapatite and Poly-L-lactic acid fillers usually cost more. Ensure that you know the exact cost of getting nasolabial fillers before your treatment.
Dermal fillers for nasolabial folds are arguably the least invasive treatment option, but, if fillers do not give you your desired result or you do not want fillers, you may opt for any of these treatment options that help soften the folds.
Nasolabial folds occur naturally, and everyone has them, but some people's folds are obvious, especially as they age. The ageing process causes loss of collagen, and this reduces the firmness of the skin, making wrinkles and lines noticeable.
Ageing also makes nasolabial folds more noticeable because the cheeks lose fat and become flat. This makes the skin droopy, deepening the folds around the cheek.
Other factors like chronic exposure to the sun fasten the ageing process by destroying the collagen and elastin in the skin, and this causes the formation of wrinkles and makes nasolabial folds obvious. Dermatologists recommend sunscreens because they prevent cancer as well as photoaging.
Some other factors that make nasolabial folds more noticeable include:
