Naso-Labial Folds (Nose to Mouth lines)
At Face Hub our dedicated teams of highly trained facial aesthetic medical practitioners can beautifully enhance the shape of your face with dermal fillers. We can soften nose-to-mouth lines to give you a more youthful and fresher appearance using Juvederm dermal filler. Naso-Labial Folds are lines or wrinkles that appear on the inner cheek going from your nose to your mouth. Most people have these but they usually get deeper or more obvious as we age. Once collagen and elastin start to decrease in the body it makes the skin become saggy or loose. There are other factors that can make these folds more severe such as:
- Chronic sun exposure
- Fluctuation in weight
- Sleeping on your side
There are a number of treatments that can help reduce these lines but dermal filler is usually the first and most common option. Dermal filler are compounds that can be injected into certain areas of the body to make it look plumper and more youthful. It smooths the skin to reduce signs of ageing such as wrinkles. Here at Face Hub, we use the best dermal filler on the market known as Juvederm.
An anaesthetic cream can be applied to the injection site for 20 minutes. The filler is then injected into precise locations before being massaged to smoothen the dermal filler. You will have a mirror throughout the treatment to see the results immediately. Treatment to soften the naso-labial fold lines takes on average 30 minutes.
Once the treatment has been completed you will see the results instantly and once any swelling has gone down you will be able to see the final results. As this is not a permanent treatment your body will eventually dissolve the dermal fillers so the results usually last between 6 and 18 months before you need a top up again.
Dermal fillers are unsuitable for patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
