If you feel that you have particularly prominent nasolabial folds then you might want to consider having the area treated with dermal filler. Filler for nasolabial folds is an effective way to soften the appearance of this crease that can be found running from the nose to the mouth. These nasolabial folds tend to become more noticeable with age. They can be caused by a combination of smiling as well as fat deposits altering. As you get older, these are the lines that change the most, becoming increasingly visible as the collagen and elastin fibres in your skin break down.
Benefits of having filler for your nasolabial folds
There are a number of benefits of filler for nasolabial folds. Not only do they help to soften the appearance of the fold but this treatment can make you look more youthful. Although the results make a dramatic improvement, when done correctly by an experienced and knowledgeable practitioner, it should look completely natural.
What you need to consider
When having this area of your face filled it can seem like a dramatic change, so when thinking about having this area filled you need to consider how deep your line is. As you age this line becomes prominent, this is due to the breakdown of elastin fibres causing the skin to sag, stretch, and lose its ability to snap back. Dr Hennessy will consider how many mls of filler is needed based on your skin type, your age, and how dense your lines are.
