Deep nasolabial folds, the lines that run from the sides of your nose to the corners of your mouth, can make you appear more tired, older, or stern than you are. As you age, these lines become more pronounced, but they can be effectively treated with hyaluronic acid fillers.
Fillers are used to fill in the lines, softening or even eliminating the folds. At Ageworth, we are here to help you eliminate a tired appearance by addressing the nasolabial folds according to a personalized treatment plan. This ensures a natural result that suits you.
At Ageworth, a filler treatment for the nasolabial folds always begins with a personalized consultation. One of our physicians will discuss your goals, desires, and needs before the treatment. Is it specifically the nasolabial folds that bother you, or are there other lines in your face, such as marionette lines, that make you appear older and less fresh? During a filler treatment for the nasolabial folds, our cosmetic physicians always consider you as an individual. The amount of fillers and the desired results are tailored to factors such as your age and appearance, allowing us to reveal the best version of yourself with fillers. If you agree with the treatment plan, the procedure can be scheduled, potentially immediately after the consultation.
Every injectable treatment starts with thorough cleansing and disinfection of the skin. The cosmetic physician then marks the injection points based on the treatment plan. The filler is injected using a needle or a blunt cannula, depending on the treatment area and your skin type. After injecting the fillers, the area is gently massaged to ensure proper distribution. After the treatment, you will receive comprehensive aftercare instructions to maximize the benefits of the treatment. A filler treatment for nasolabial folds typically takes 45 minutes (including consultation).
There is no recovery time required after a filler treatment. You can resume your daily activities immediately. However, your skin may appear slightly red and sensitive due to the injections. In some cases, small bruises may occur after a filler treatment, which typically fade within a few days. Avoid visiting the gym, tanning beds, or saunas during the first week after the treatment. Wait at least two weeks before visiting a beautician. UV radiation can accelerate skin damage in the treated area, so it is essential to minimize sun exposure and always apply a sunscreen with a minimum SPF 30. Applying a nourishing (scar) cream can speed up the skin’s recovery after an injectable treatment.
How Long Does the Result Last?
The results of a filler treatment are typically visible for six to twelve months. The body naturally breaks down the fillers over time. The duration of the effect varies per individual and depends on factors such as your skin type and lifestyle. If desired, a follow-up treatment can be arranged.
