Nasolabial Folds

Nasolabial 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 nasolabial 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 nasolabial fold area directly or the upper cheek area ( to give the cheeks a lift, thus making the nasolabial folds less noticeable) will be best to achieve your desired result.

Good to note: Fillers will not make the folds disappear, but they can make them less pronounced. They can also be used to help nearby skin look fuller and more youthful.
