Nasiolabial folds area a normal part of human anatomy ( the line that runs from nose to mouth). As people age however these folds can become deeper and may also sag. If this is to happen and the fold becomes too deep it can give your face a tired expression.
We offer some cosmetic procedures that can reduce the appearance of the nasiolabial folds or eliminate them. Treatment options include:
Dermal Filler – Placed just under the skin , filler can plump up the skin reducing the appearance of the folds.
After an in depth consultation with one of our specialised practitioners you will be advised if dermal filler placed in either the nasiolabial fold area directly or the upper cheek area ( to give the cheeks a lift, thus making the nasiolabial folds less noticeable) will be best to achieve your desired result.
