Nasolabial folds are a common skin condition affecting everyone as they age. Whether you’re male or female, the body’s natural decrease in collagen and elastin makes everyone vulnerable to these creases. Becoming deeper and more pronounced over time, it gives the face a hollow or droopy appearance. On the bright side, we have a range of wrinkle-busting cosmetic treatments that will allow you to get tighter skin and soften your nasolabial folds.
What are Nasolabial Folds?
Nasolabial folds are also known as smile lines or laugh lines because they usually appear when we smile or laugh. They are found on both sides of the nose extending to the corners of the mouth. During our younger years, these lines are less visible or only appear when we engage the muscles in that area. If left untreated, these creases will deepen and become permanent wrinkles.
What causes Nasolabial Folds?
Nasolabial folds occur when the skin’s production of collagen and elastin decreases with age. With this loss comes the weakening of the facial muscles making them less able to hold their original shape, succumbing to forces like gravity. This decrease in volume can result in cheeks that sag and visibly prominent nasolabial creases. What’s more, factors like smoking, environmental pollution, or excessive sun damage can accelerate the formation of these smile lines.
How to get rid of Nasolabial Folds?
At Cardiff Cosmetic Clinic, our team of aesthetic experts are skilled at treating patients with nasolabial folds. Our range of treatments can be used individually or combined for a holistic, customised solution. Some of our advanced procedures include smile line fillers, also known as nasolabial fold fillers, Neogen plasma, Morpheus8, PDO threads, and much more. Dermal fillers or microneedling treatments like Morpheus 8 can stimulate collagen and elastin production, adding strength and volume to your face. If needles are not your thing, try out Neogen, which uses nitrogen plasma energy and heat to stimulate collagen production deep in the dermis. Plus, there’s thread lifting that helps to clip back sagging skin for the ultimate skin-tightening effect.
