Nasolabial Folds

You can prevent NASOLABIAL FOLDS with simple exercise

While genetics plays a key role in nasolabial fold development, the atmosphere and our actions also play a role in our appearance. Anything that supports collagen production can improve the appearance of laugh lines by thickening and strengthening skin, and minimizing wrinkles. We need to adapt is a healthy lifestyle, collagen rich food and also some facial exercise?

The skin resistant to nasolabial formation includes simple tips to follow:
• Use good moisturizing skincare products that stimulate collagen, such as hyaluronic acid.
• Selecting products that contain antioxidants and Vitamin C, which also boost collagen
• Adding retinoids to your skin care routine. You should mix retinol with good moisturizer and apply it on face.
• Avoid sun exposure
• Wash face in frequent intervals to provide hydration to the facial skin
Most effective technique is Facial Exercises
Exercise could logically improve the appearance of nasolabial folds by strengthening the muscles of the lower cheeks, mouth and chin. In the least, it won’t hurt to do the following once or twice daily:
• Seal your lips using your hands and puff up your cheeks
• Hold for 15 seconds while you transfer air from cheek to cheek. Do 2-3 sets.
• Pucker your lips in a kiss towards the ceiling
• Hold for 15 seconds. Do 4-5 sets.
• Slightly open your mouth, and pull back on the corners with clean fingers.
• Hold for 2-3 seconds. Do 10-20 sets.


Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers can lessen the appearance of nasolabial folds by plumping the upper cheek or the area just below your smile lines. Fillers are 100% non-surgical and provide results that are both dramatic and instant. There’s also no downtime, patients can return to their normal daily activities immediately following treatment.

Skin Resurfacing (laser treatments or chemical peels)

Laugh lines sometimes leave a permanent wrinkle that’s evident even when you’re not smiling. It can reduce the appearance of these wrinkles with skin resurfacing treatments such as chemical peels or laser resurfacing. When skin looks youthful, nasolabial folds are often less noticeable.


The microneedling process involves the creation of microscopic channels through the surface of the skin, which leads to the formation of new tissue and releases the skin’s natural growth factor, which promotes scar and hyperpigmentation repair and healing. The skin’s natural healing process starts the production of new collagen and elastin fibres, making the skin thicker, tighter, and more youthful in appearance.

Skin Tightening (Thermage or Ultherapy)

Skin tightening procedures such as Ultherapy or Thermage work in similar ways, by creating microscopic damage underneath the skin’s surface to stimulate the body’s healing process. This can soften deep laugh lines, but works primarily by making skin appear more youthful and smoother overall.

Surgical procedures:

Fat Transfer

Fat transfer (fat grafting) procedures for nasolabial folds are very similarly to dermal fillers, however, instead of filler, the patient’s own fat is used to plump the skin. Fat is taken out from an area of the body (typically the stomach or thighs), processed in a centrifuge to remove impurities, and re-injected into the upper cheek or just below the laugh line to reduce the appearance of the nasolabial fold.

Subcision surgery (nasolabial fold surgery)

Subcision surgery is ideal for addressing the most severe forms of nasolabial folds. The procedure entails using a needle to make tiny punctures in the surface of the skin. This releases the skin from underlying tissue and encourages collagen production as the skin heals. Subcision can reduce the depth of the deepest smile lines.
