Nasolabial Fold Treatment

Nasolabial folds, also known as smile lines or laugh lines, are the two skin folds that run from the corners of your nose and extend down to each side of your mouth. While these lines are natural facial features, they often become more pronounced with age and contribute to a tired or prematurely aged appearance. Palm Beach Gardens Dermal Filler Specialists at Lickstein Plastic Surgery offer the latest minimally invasive treatment options to reduce the appearance of these moderate to deep nasolabial folds.

What Causes Nasolabial Folds?

While most types of facial wrinkles and folds are caused from aging alone, nasolabial folds are a common facial feature in people of all ages and are defined by the underlying facial structures that support the buccal fat pad on either side of the face. However, the repetition of facial expressions over time can cause nasolabial folds to deepen dramatically. In addition, most people experience  reduced collagen production as they age, which can also cause the surrounding areas to sag or appear slack, adding to a prematurely aged effect. Other factors, such sun damage or loss of volume in the face due to weight loss can increase the appearance of creases. In fact, one of the first noticeable signs of aging in the face is often deepening nasolabial folds.

Smile Lines, Laugh Lines, Parentheses Lines, Marionette Lines. . .or Nasolabial Folds?

Which one is it? “Nasolabial folds” may not be a term that you hear often when talking about these facial folds. In fact, the colloquial term for this facial feature is smile or laugh lines. However, nasolabial folds can also be referred to as “parentheses lines”. Many people confuse marionette lines with nasolabial folds, and while they are closely related and often treated at the same time, they are slightly different as they refer to the long vertical wrinkles that form at each corner of the mouth and extend down to the bottom of the chin, lending to an unhappy look.
