Erase Laugh Lines with Dermal Fillers - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Facial expressions are a huge part of our life, and the more mobile the expressions we use when we talk, smile or laugh, the greater chance that deep laugh lines will develop at a younger age. People often feel that laugh lines will make their face look fatigued or drawn, but it's when these lines become more pronounced, that they become a problem.

Nasolabial folds are the two folds of skin that run from each side of the nose to the corners of the mouth. They are natural facial contours which are commonly known as smile lines or laughter lines. Nasolabial folds can appear on the face of people as early as their 20's and they can be relatively fine, maybe just a fine wrinkle or become a deep fold, to the point that the skin above seems to hang over it.

There are several ways of reducing nasolabial folds, from topical treatments, to more invasive courses of action.
  • Creams and Serums - Using topical creams and serums may only be a short-term solution. Most of these creams contain ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid which improves the way the skin retains moisture, tretinoin which slows the breakdown of collagen, and exfoliants which help remove dead skin cells.
  • Cosmetic Surgery - Surgery is an expensive but long-term solution for reducing nasolabial folds, but it's an invasive surgical procedure and it's not a decision to take lightly. A facelift can reduce laugh lines, as the tightening of the skin makes the folds more shallow and less noticeable.
  • Dermal Fillers - Fillers offer the most effective non-surgical method for treating these lines. Non-permanent dermal fillers present a non-invasive and cost-effective means of treatment.
These facial lines are part of our normal anatomy and they can develop at any age and in fact, many of us grow up with a slight hint of laugh lines, but with time as we grow older, the fold can seem deeper as our skin loses volume. As we age we lose the elasticity in the skin, and our facial muscles weaken, making this area one of the first places to sag.

Dermal filler treatment usually takes 30-45 minutes and a local anaesthetic injection is usually given to minimise any potential discomfort. Correction or softening of these folds gives you a youthful fresher look and the results achieved by using dermal fillers for treating the nasolabial folds are stunning and natural looking.
