What are nasolabial folds?

Nasolabial folds are the deep lines and wrinkles that you may notice that form at the bottom of the nose and go to the corners of the mouth. Nasolabial folds are quite common as we continue to age; however, the severity of nasolabial folds will vary from each individual.

Often when an individual smiles, they become more noticeable than when your face is at rest. Almost everyone has nasolabial folds on their face, with the exception of newborns or any individual who may be paralyzed in the face due to a medical condition.

These folds are dense bundles of fibrous tissue and muscle, and as we age, sagging becomes inevitable, and the nasolabial folds become more noticeable.

How are nasolabial folds treated?

Nasolabial folds are often treated as a cosmetic matter but not as a high-risk factor or for a health condition, as when it comes down to it, it does not necessarily require treatment.

Many individuals who find that their nasolabial folds are especially evident may wish to diminish them. There are a few cosmetic treatments available to help reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds, the treatment option we offer at Northern California Wellness is the Restylane dermal filler.

Restylane dermal filler is considered an implant that is placed under the skin and can plump the treated area of the skin while also reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

Our doctor will apply the Restylane dermal filler under the skin in the area of the nasolabial folds, or in the upper cheek area to provide life and have the nasolabial fold look less noticeable.

What causes nasolabial folds?

Nasolabial folds are a natural part of the human anatomy, it is not due to aging but can become more noticeable with aging. As well, with age, individuals may begin to develop lines next to their nasolabial folds, while others may have these lines extend down to their chin, this is known as the marionette lines.

Nasolabial folds not only become more prominent with age but with other factors as well, including:

• Sun exposure, will damage the skin and cause fine lines, wrinkles, and changes in the texture of the skin over time
• Loss of collagen due to age will begin to make the skin look thin and weak
• Loss of fat will make the cheeks and any nearby areas appear saggy

As we age, so does our skin, and our facial expressions will start to cause deeper wrinkles which begin to become more noticeable over time. Just as scowling can cause lines to appear near the eyebrows, smiling can cause the nasolabial folds to become deeper.

A few other factors that should be considered when it comes to the aging of the skin:

• Smoking
• Exposure to pollutants found in the surrounding environment
• Rapid weight loss
• Fluctuations in weight

How long does Restylane last in nasolabial folds?

Depending on the amount of volume of the Restylane dermal filler you need, Restylane treatment normally lasts on average an hour, and patients begin to notice the difference almost immediately with the added volume and the way the dermal filler is able to smooth away any wrinkles. Restylane products are created with a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid, it acts exactly like your body’s own hyaluronic acid that is naturally made, and destroyed, as the body will eventually begin to break it down naturally like it does its own hyaluronic acid.
