Nasolabial folds are common and seen in everyone, the difference is how dominant they are in comparison to other individuals due to age and other factors. Contact us today to learn more about our nasolabial fold fillers.

Nasolabial folds are quite common wrinkles to see along the inner cheeks. They begin to stretch from the bottom of the nose to the corners of the mouth. Everyone has these wrinkles to some degree; however, as we age, they become more predominant and tend to become much deeper. There are many different types of wrinkle treatments available; however, dermal fillers seem to be the most recommended and used treatment due to their effectiveness and longevity of the treatment.

Do fillers work for nasolabial folds?


As stated previously dermal fillers work great as they are cosmetic injectables used to treat facial wrinkles. Dermal fillers work to plump the area of the skin that it is injected into, so the deep wrinkles and fine lines appear smoother, and less noticeable. While all types of dermal fillers help to stimulate collagen, there’s a skin-plumping protein that allows you to naturally lose with age. The most common dermal fillers that are used in nasolabial fold treatments contain hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a clear substance that is naturally produced within the skin and works by firming the skin and keeping it hydrated.

The following hyaluronic acid fillers are FDA approved for the treatment of nasolabial folds, and are offered at Illume Aesthetics in Ashland, OR:

• Belotero
• Juvéderm

Our specialist will recommend the best suited dermal filler for you for your nasolabial fold treatment during a consultation appointment.

What causes nasolabial folds?


Nasolabial folds are natural, and everyone has them, but they do become more noticeable with age, and this is mainly due to the loss of collagen production. When you begin to lose collagen, the skin will become less firm and supple than previously, therefore you will see a deepening of the nasolabial folds and wrinkles.

Another reason why nasolabial folds begin to be more noticeable with age is due to the tendency of the cheeks to flatten out over time. When this occurs, the skin will become droopy in a downwards motion, which will deepen the folds around the cheeks.

However, like everything else there are some factors that are out of your control, this may include sun exposure which has been profound and contributes to the aging of the skin, as the sun begins to destroy the elastin and collagen within the skin.

What are the benefits of using fillers for nasolabial folds?


One of our specialists will recommend a dermal filler for your nasolabial fold treatment, and they often will only recommend dermal fillers as they are less invasive than other options available, which include surgery. While each individual’s results will vary, dermal fillers will provide the general benefits:

• Increased collagen production in the skin, which will help to plump the targeted area
• Increased volume in and around the mouth area
• An entire lift of the skin
• Smoother and softer appearance to the skin
• Minimal side effects
• Immediate results
• You have the option to wear makeup after your treatment if you decide to

How to prepare for nasolabial folds fillers appointment?


When you go to book your appointment for nasolabial fold fillers, our professionals will remind you about how to prepare for your nasolabial fold treatment; however, to provide a more generalized approach to the matter, it is recommended you:

• Discontinue taking aspirin, ibuprofen, Motrin, fish oil, vitamin E, garlic, ginkgo Biloba, flaxseed oil, Omega 3, and niacin at least 7 to 10 days before treatment, as these can cause bruising
• We may recommend you take certain products days prior to the appointment to aid in decreasing any swelling and bruising

It should be mentioned that it is very normal for the injection site(s) to be bruised after and can take up to 7 to 10 days to completely fade. While the swelling and redness can take on average 1 to 3 days after the treatment to go down. Often, many patients will notice one side will be slightly fuller than the other side, and this is quite normal. You will be seen by one of our specialists for a follow-up to ensure the area is looking great.

We advise you to sleep on your back with your head elevated above your heart by using 2 pillows for at least 3 nights in a row to ensure the newly injected facial filler stays in place.
