What are Nasolabial Fillers?
The nasolabial folds are the creases running down from the sides of the nose towards the corners of the mouth. These creases can become deeper and more noticeable over time, as we lose fat and volume from the cheeks as part of the natural ageing process. Nasolabial fillers are specially designed to smoothen out these deep creases.
How can Nasolabial Fillers enhance my appearance?
By carefully injecting small amounts of nasolabial fillers into these deep creases, we can restore that lost volume whilst softening and smoothening the skin which results in an evened out, refreshed and more youthful appearance.
What to expect before, during and after your Nasolabial Filler treatment
Before your Nasolabial Filler treatment
During the initial consultation we will discuss the options and create a bespoke treatment plan, going over the benefits and possible side effects. We’ll take a few ‘before’ photos for you to compare the nasolabial filler before and after results once the treatment has finished.
During your Nasolabial Filler treatment
During the treatment itself we will apply a local anaesthetic lidocaine for a more comfortable treatment before we proceed to inject the nasolabial fillers. For the nasolabials, we use Restylane, a non-permanent filler containing Hyaluronic Acid (HA) and additional vitamins and amino acids to restore lost volume and to rejuvenate the skin. HA is a natural component and something that our body makes daily. It is found throughout our body; in our skin, bones, joints and eyes. It acts as a lubricant and moisturiser due to its ability to attract and store water. Unfortunately, as we age, we are not able to produce as much HA as we did in our youth.
After your Nasolabial Filler treatment
After the treatment, the positive effects of the treatment should be visible immediately, especially when compared to the ‘before’ photos. The effects of this treatment will last between 6 and 9 months. Most people can return to their normal daily life immediately after the treatment. Try to avoid touching the treated area and keep it clean. Also, try to sleep on your back facing up. You might experience slight side effect inconveniences in the treated area, such as swelling, mild bruising, itching or redness. These side effects typically only last between 1 and 3 days.
