Nasolabial folds are the lines that descend from the side of the nose down to the corner of the mouth. Sometimes referred to as smile lines or laugh lines, nasolabial folds can make individuals appear tired and older than their true age. These folds can help to separate the lip area from the cheek area, though they become more distinct as we age, creating a more obvious fold within the skin. Nasolabial folds are categorized as static wrinkles, meaning they are present in the skin even when the face is at rest and not making any facial expressions.
As nasolabial folds are caused primarily from underlying changes occurring in the skin that ultimately leads to shifting fatty tissue and resulting in volume loss, dermal fillers are a great option for treatment. In particular, hyaluronic acid-based fillers like Juvederm are a favorite of doctors and patients alike. Injection with Juvederm adds needed volume to the area, offering instant plumping effects in the area that supports the skin, decreasing the appearance of folds or deep lines. Juvederm Vollure XC and Juvederm XC are indicated for the treatment of moderate to severe wrinkles and folds, including nasolabial folds, for patients over the age of 21. With Juvederm, patients can look forward to instant, natural-looking results. Treatment is safe and effective, though finding an experienced medical practitioner is always essential, as results rely heavily on the skill of the practitioner and injection technique. Patients may experience mild temporary side effects, such as redness, swelling, pain, tenderness, bruising, and itching in the treatment area. Juvederm should not be used on patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
The longevity of results depends on many factors, including the age and lifestyle of the patient, the injection technique used, and the area of treatment and severity of correction required. However, on average, treatment with Juvederm XC has been proven to last for up to 12 months, and treatment with Juvederm Vollure XC can last up to 18 with optimal treatment. Results will vary by patient.
