WHAT ARE NASOLABIAL FOLDS?
As you get older you may begin to notice lines and wrinkles. These can be in the form of nose to mouth lines, or folds. There might also be lines from the edge of your mouth to your chin, which are called marionette lines. If you are a smoker you may also have lines around your top lip. These lines and many others like it can be treated with non-surgical procedures using dermal filler.
HOW DO YOU TREAT THE LINES?
By using dermal fillers and botulinum toxin. Dermal fillers do exactly that, give your face a fuller appearance and smooth away the lines. We use botulinum toxin around the lip area if you have lines caused by smoking or your mouth is drooping downwards.
HOW LONG DO THE FILLERS LAST?
It will normally last between 6-12 months. Although each person is different, some will find it doesn't last the full 6 months. This can be caused by smoking, fast metabolism, regular exercise or kissing.
CAN ANYONE HAVE THE TREATMENT?
You shouldn’t use dermal fillers when you are pregnant, or breastfeeding. Although the dermal fillers we use don’t migrate through the body, there are no studies to show the effects on an unborn or feeding child. Medically it is recommended that cosmetic procedures aren’t carried out at this time. You will be asked to complete a medical questionnaire and inform the practitioner of any medical history.
