ABOUT NASOLABIAL FOLDS
Nasolabial folds refer to the areas that extend from the corner of the nose vertically towards the corner of the mouth. Additional folds/creasing may also appear parallel to this. Individuals of all ages present at the clinic, concerned that these lines are ageing their appearance.
The cause of these lines, which will be investigated during your consultation, present themselves due to two main reasons. The first is facial descent/’drooping’, something that is caused over time by a loss of volume in the face (this typically stems from the cheek region so the cheeks typically will also require treatments).
The second type is referred as the “smile lines” and appears like wrinkles. These are caused by repetitive movements of the area due to smiling or laughing.
