As we get older, our facial appearance can begin to change. As the years pass by, the skin can lose its natural elasticity, due to a reduction in collagen production. This can mean that nasolabial folds become more prominent and skin can overlap and drop over these folds on our face.
The nasolabial folds are vertical lines that appear on both sides of the nose, continuing down to the corner of the mouth. As we age, the sagging of the skin can emphasise the appearance of nasolabial folds. This can make you appear tired and older than you years.
But, dermal fillers have become a popular treatment to remedy prominent nasolabial folds. This treatment plumps up the skin, softening the appearance of the lines and tightening the skin.
Before nasolabial folds treatment, patients will meet with a professional at nearest Esteem clinic to discuss what is involved in the procedure. You will also be able to talk about the expected results from dermal fillers for your nasolabial folds.
This is the best time to have any of your questions answered by a professional. They will be able to give you suitable answers that apply to your treatment. If you decide to go ahead with dermal fillers, you will be able to arrange a treatment date and time for your first session.
Treatment for nasolabial folds is a non-invasive procedure that does not require you to go under a general anaesthetic or surgery. Receiving dermal fillers is a simple procedure that can be completed in only 20 to 30 minutes.
It will involve a Gold Coast professional inserting dermal filler through a series of injections with a fine needle. Before you receive these injections, your skin will be numbed with an anaesthetic cream. This will make sure the treatment is free from pain, with minimal discomfort experienced by the patient.
There is little downtime associated with dermal fillers. While some slight reddening of the skin and swelling is common, this will usually decrease within 48 hours of treatment. There will be no scars left from the injections, with minor bruising possible, but not expected.
After received nasolabial folds treatment you will be able to go home immediately and return to your daily routine.
When you have received nasolabial folds treatment, you will be able to see the results immediately. Many people have achieved softer nasolabial lines, with a rejuvenated facial appearance after receiving dermal fillers. This has restored a youthful appearance for many patients.
Yet, it is important to remember that every patient is different and that results are individual. You will be able to find out more about your personalised, expected results during a consultation.
The results of nasolabial folds can last up to two years. But again, this will depend on the individual patient, taking in account their age and condition of their skin.
If you would like to find out more about the nasolabial folds treatment and what results you can expect from the procedure, you can speak to one of the Esteem specialists and make a consultation appointment.
