Nasobial fold filler is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses injectable dermal fillers to add volume and definition to the nasolabial folds, also known as the “smile lines” or “laugh lines” that run from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth. The procedure is performed by a trained medical professional, such as a cosmetic doctor or plastic surgeon, in a clinic setting. It’s a quick procedure that typically takes one visit.
The injectable filler used in the procedure is typically made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that helps to hydrate and plump the skin. The procedure is usually performed by injecting the filler into the nasolabial folds using a fine needle. The medical professional will carefully inject the filler into the desired areas to add volume and smooth out wrinkles and fine lines.
The results of the nasolabial fold filler procedure are not permanent and typically last for about 6-12 months. Repeat treatments may be necessary to maintain the desired results. The procedure is considered to be safe with minimal side effects such as redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection site. However, as with any medical procedure, there are risks and it’s important to consult with a medical professional in Sydney to determine if this procedure is appropriate for you.

All you need to know about Nasobial Fold Filler
Nasolabial folds are deep creases that appear on your facial skin when there is a loss in skin volume due to several factors.
The nasolabial fold area starts from the lower nose corner and continues down up to the corner of the mouth.
Nasolabial folds can appear on your face with age. It may be more prominent in some people than in others. While your expressions are the main cause of nasolabial folds, age also causes much volume loss on your face. Your cheek area appears droopy after the lost volume and this makes the nasolabial fold appear like deep creases which may seem unsightly on your face.
Another factor that causes nasolabial folds to appear on your face can be too much sun exposure. Genetic predisposition can also be the cause for the appearance of prominent nasolabial folds on your face.
If you are getting bothered by the nasolabial lines and a significant volume loss on your face and want to get treatment to improve your look and physiological balance, then you should start thinking about getting dermal fillers.
You can also get dermal fillers for nasolabial folds if you have gotten a previous further treatment like cheeks filler, lip filler or tear troughs.
If you want your nasolabial folds to be treated by non-surgical treatment, the first treatment you should consider is getting dermal fillers on your nasolabial lines.
A small injection solution of dermal filler can go a long way to reduce your ageing signs and increase collagen production.
Dermal fillers can give a much fresher look by stimulating collagen production and tightening your skin again in a short time. The fillers will add volume to the soft tissues to get rid (results may vary for every person and its not guarenteed) of any creases and frown lines. The desired outcome will show some subtle enhancement, curing any deep lines and providing natural beauty to your nose, cheeks and mouth area.
The dermal filler injections consist of Hyaluronic acid, which has proven itself to be both safer and more effective than surgery. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body and can be broken down by your body as well.
The most effective filler for nasolabial folds or marionette lines is definitely American dermal fillers Vollure XC. This filler is thin and it smooths out wrinkles and fine lines around your cheeks and mouth and produces natural results.
At least 2 weeks before getting treated, you should stop taking several pain relief medications like aspirin, ibuprofen and also oils or creams containing vitamin E. Fish oil supplements can increase your chances of bleeding and bruising. You should also not be taking any weight loss supplements.
You should also stop consuming any type of alcoholic drink at least 48 hours before the treatment. Any kind of cosmetic treatment is ideal for people who are non-smokers. If you smoke, you should stop it at least 2 weeks before getting the fillers.
Nasolabial folds or smile lines appear around the area of your mouth. There is soft tissue present and volume loss occurs on the cheeks. This is the injection site for getting dermal fillers for nasolabial folds.
At first, the doctor will strategically determine the injection sites for the fillers.
The doctor will prepare the skin of your face around your nose with a numbing cream. Then dermal filler injections will be carefully injected into the injection sites by using a very fine needle with a small hole. A fine needle makes any discomfort you could be feeling to a minimal level and this process also eliminates the need to undergo surgery.
The final result will be smooth and fresh-looking skin.
As opposed to surgical facelift procedures, which would have taken much longer, non-surgical nasolabial fold fillers will only take about 30 minutes for each session.
Depending on your aesthetic goals, the brand and type of nasolabial filler you are getting, and your body and facial skin and structure, your doctor will determine the number of sessions you will be needing. Typically people need anywhere between 3 – 6 sessions to show complete results.
There is no mandatory recovery period associated with getting any kind of dermal filler treatment. This is also the case with nasolabial fold filler since this is a very low-risk treatment.
You will not be provided with any local anaesthetic for such a treatment, hence recovering from anaesthetic effects will not be required.
One of the biggest perks of a dermal filler treatment is that there is minimal downtime. You can go back to your regular routine in just a few hours after the treatment if you feel comfortable with it.
Your skin will be a bit sore, so you can take the day off as well. You will have no problem with your daily work provided you follow the doctor’s advice and take a few precautions.
After the procedure, you have to be careful not to expose your facial skin directly to the UV rays of the sun. You should use sunscreen of SPF 50++ at least on your face. You should try shielding yourself from direct sunlight. Use umbrellas if necessary.
You should also not get any facial treatment like chemical peels done to your nose area. The area of the dermal filler should also not be tampered with or scratched too much.
A nasolabial folds filler treatment will typically last anywhere around 12 – 18 months.
But the real longevity of the fillers depends on your lifestyle, the climate of your location and also your body’s metabolism. Depending on all these, your nasolabial filler may stay for a longer or a shorter duration.
Since this is a non-invasive procedure, no incision will be made on your skin. There is no chance of painful cuts. Not to mention that the doctor will also prepare the skin of your nose bridge with numbing cream if necessary. After that, getting the filler injections will be largely minimally painful.
Not to mention that getting nasolabial fold fillers will also be almost minimal discomfort and smooth compared to fully invasive surgery. You will mostly feel a very mild discomfort which will come from the fillers entering your blood vessels.
As with all cosmetic treatments, a very rare complication can occur with nasolabial fold injections as well. You can also get an involuntary allergic reaction to the dermal nasolabial fillers.
The doctor may accidentally inject the dermal filler in a fatal place, where your blood vessel will be blocked. This is called occlusion.
There is also the chance of the filler not spreading out and forming lumps under your skin, giving your nasolabial area an odd shape.
However, this is extremely rare and Skin Club Cosmetic Doctors have certified and experienced doctors who are experts in the procedure.
There is rarely any scarring from non-surgical dermal filler procedures. You will be left with a refreshed appearance and a naturally rejuvenated look after the treatment, without any kind of scars.
But if you see any scarring, it is temporary and will go away in a few days.
No local anaesthetic is needed during any type of dermal filler injectable treatment. The only invasion you will be feeling on your skin will be from the needles. If you have a fear of needle pricks, you can ask your doctor to apply a numbing cream on the nasolabial fold area and the surrounding area of your skin as well. This will help you not feel any sting from the needles.
One of ethical perks of getting a nasolabial filler procedure is that if you do not like the final look of your face and you feel like your previous look suited you better, this treatment is completely reversible.
A dermal filler contains Hyaluronic acid, which is a temporary compound that dissolves in your skin and is metabolised by your body with time.
If you are completely unhappy and want to get the effects reversed immediately, dermal filler can be dissolved with an enzyme called hyaluronidase. After the hyaluronidase is injected, the effects of the filler treatment will be reversed.
Getting nasolabial fold filler treatment is a very simple procedure, and if you want, ask your doctor about getting other cosmetic treatments along clubbed together with this one.
The most common cosmetic treatment many patients get along with this one is marionette lines filler. Other popular treatments clubbed together with nasolabial fillers include upper lip filler, filler to lift the cheek area, tear troughs, and fillers for other laugh lines.
Dermal fillers are one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments around the world. Dermal fillers can easily prevent several signs of ageing on your face.
Alternatively, if you do not want to repeat the dermal fillers again and want a more permanent option, you can opt for facelift surgery. This surgery will not only work to smooth your nasolabial folds but also lift other parts of your face like your upper eyes, your jaw and chin and especially your cheeks.
A PDO thread lift may also help in subtly lifting your facial features including your nasolabial folds.
Facelift surgery is surely a more permanent option. But it is you who has to decide if it is the right procedure for yourself.
Facelift surgery poses much more risks than non-surgical cosmetic treatments. Unlike non-surgical procedures, surgery involves making incisions and sutures on the area to be treated. People may not be comfortable getting knives that close to their faces.
The surgeon will also use general anaesthesia to numb your senses, which can be harmful to you. The surgery will also be much more painful than non-surgical procedures.
There is also much more downtime for recovery and you may have to stay in the medical clinic under observation for some time. Not to mention that the effects are irreversible and if you do not like the results, you will have to undergo another surgery to reverse the effects.
These are the top reasons most people nowadays opt for non-surgical cosmetic procedures rather than other surgical versions.
Since your nasolabial folds will be cured non-surgically, hence the treatment is considered outpatient therapy. You can get this done at Skin Club Cosmetic Doctors cosmetic clinic.
The cost of a dermal filler for the skin of your nasolabial folds depends on your location, the brand of the dermal filler, and also your clinic and the expertise of your doctor.
