What treatments are the best for my Naso-Labial Fold Concerns? Aesthetic Lane, Black Rock, VIC.
At Aesthetic Lane there are several treatments that we can recommend for reduction of Naso-Labial Folds. Some of these treatments can involve cosmetic treatments such as Dermal Fillers and skin treatments like Advanced Skin Needling.
Dermal fillers can reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds by restoring volume to the area. Nasolabial folds, also known as smile lines, are the lines that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth. They become more pronounced as we age, due to the loss of volume in the cheeks and the natural breakdown of collagen and elastin in the skin.
During a dermal filler treatment for nasolabial folds, a small amount of filler material is injected beneath the skin in the area around the fold. The filler plumps up the skin, reducing the depth of the fold and smoothing out the skin in the area. The filler can be strategically placed to restore volume to other areas of the face, such as the cheeks or the chin, to further enhance the overall appearance of the face.
The type and amount of filler used for nasolabial folds will depend on the individual’s facial structure and the severity of the folds. The effects of dermal fillers typically last up to 9 to 18 months, depending on the type of filler used and the individual’s metabolism.
Skin needling is another treatment we recommend for nasolabial folds that involves using a small device with tiny needles to create controlled micro-channels in the skin. The purpose of skin needling is to stimulate collagen and elastin production, which can improve the overall texture and appearance of the skin, including reducing the appearance of nasolabial folds.
When the needles are rolled over the skin, they create small channels in the skin’s surface. This triggers the body’s natural healing response, causing the production of new collagen and elastin. As a result, the skin becomes firmer, more elastic, and smoother, which can help reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds.
At Aesthetic Lane, our team recommends this treatment in combination with dermal filler as it is not as effective on its own especially if you have very deep folds. In such cases, a combination of dermal fillers and skin needling are a very effective way help reduce naso-labial folds.
