What are nasolabial folds?

Nasolabial lines (also known as laugh lines) are the C-shaped creases around the edge of your mouth. They run from your nostrils to the edge of your chin, typically appearing when you laugh or smile broadly. 

The shape and prominence of nasolabial folds differ from person to person. We can tailor our nasolabial fold treatment to suit your unique features.

  • Fine nasolabial folds typically appear on those in their 20s and 30s. They tend to appear during exaggerated facial expressions and disappear when the face is static.
  • Deep nasolabial folds appear as we age and our skin loses its supple elasticity. These laugh lines can stay etched in the face even when it’s static.
  • Asymmetrical nasolabial folds occur on only one side of the mouth. A fold like this is typically the result of an asymmetrical smile. 

At your consultation, your dedicated doctor will assess the severity and cause of your smile lines and recommend the best course of treatment.

What We Treat

Preparing for your laugh line injectables

Our injectable procedures are minimally invasive and require equally minimal preparation. At your consultation, we’ll give you a few easy-to-follow instructions you’ll need to follow for the week before your appointment. These instructions will include:

  • Avoid skin treatments, such as laser treatments or chemical peels. Having clear, clean skin will help mitigate the risk of adverse reactions.
  • Avoid activities or substances that thin your blood or significantly increase your heart rate. These include exercise, alcohol and certain medications. This will prevent excess bleeding and bruising from the injections.

Your nasolabial fold injections will be done in an hour or so

Prioritising safety doesn’t mean we lose sight of efficiency. Depending on your treatment plan, you can expect your session to run for approximately an hour and a half — possibly less. You likely won’t require any rest time following the procedure, so you should be able to return to work or any other commitments following your procedure.

Here’s how the day will run:

  • Your doctor will review the session agenda with you. They’ll explain the injection process and address any concerns you may have.
  • We will cleanse your face of the day’s sweat and grime, and apply a numbing cream to minimise your discomfort.
  • We’ll complete the procedure.
  • Afterwards, we’ll ask you to wait for a brief monitoring period to ensure you don’t have any adverse reactions. Then, you’ll be free to leave.
On The Day

How to ensure your injections heal properly

Our highly tolerable and skin-safe serums should settle into your skin quickly and easily. However, you will likely experience mild itchiness and redness around the injection points — this is to be expected and should alleviate within 3-4 days.

  • Keep your skin clean for 3-4 days. Use plenty of sunscreen and moisturiser. We recommend using Hydra-vital light moisturising gel cream
  • Avoid putting too much pressure on your face. Do not sleep on your face.
  • Continue to avoid alcohol, exercise and blood-thinning medication for at least four days.

Anti-wrinkle injections

For deeply etched or prominent nasolabial folds, we typically recommend our paralytic anti-wrinkle serum. This non-toxic, medical-grade serum relaxes the muscles around the mouth and cheek. Our gentle serum can dramatically reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds while leaving your face expressive and natural-looking.

Dermal filler injections

We can also treat nasolabial folds using pure hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers. These fillers plumpen and smooth out your laugh lines while moisturising your skin. Not only do our fillers soften nasolabial folds and fine lines, but they also keep your skin supple and youthful. We typically recommend fillers for younger clients with dynamic laugh lines.

In our experience, even a subtle adjustment to your facial features can be enough to dramatically improve your self-confidence. We’ve seen it countless times.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does retinol help reduce nasolabial folds?

Yes, retinol is an excellent solution for reducing the appearance of laugh lines. Its collagen-stimulating properties help prevent age or lifestyle factors from making your nasolabial folds deeper.

  • Activ Retinol 0.5 is an excellent serum for all skin types. We typically recommend it to younger clients with fine lines and dynamic wrinkles seeking to reduce signs of premature ageing.
  • Activ Retinol 1.0 is a more potent serum better suited to mature skin. It helps relieve lines and wrinkles while keeping the skin bright and well-moisturised.

Will my nasolabial fold filler treatment be painful?

Our clients do not report any significant pain or discomfort from either our dermal filler or anti-wrinkle treatments. However, there are some minor effects you should be aware of:

  • You will likely experience mild itching and redness around the injection points for a few days after your session. This is normal and simply part of your body’s healing process. 
  • If you’ve had anti-wrinkle injections, your skin may feel slightly numb or tight. This feeling will alleviate as you get used to the effects of the serum.
  • If you’ve had dermal fillers, your skin may feel plump and tight. You may even feel small bumps in the filler beneath your skin. This is normal, as the filler is still settling. You can help it by gently massaging it with a cold press.

Contact us for advice if you have any concerns or lasting discomfort.

How long will the effects of the laugh line treatment last?

You should expect your treatments to last for six months to a year. The serum and injectables we use are easily metabolised by your body (which is part of what makes them so safe). The more movement the treated area is exposed to, the quicker the metabolism will happen. Your face, being so expressive, will quickly metabolise the treatment. 

Once you notice your smile lines are starting to return or regain their prominence, get in touch, and we’ll schedule another round of treatment.
