Nasolabial folds, or “smile lines” are creases that form in the skin extending from both sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth. They become more prominent as we age, due to a loss of bone, muscle and fat mass in the face and decreasing collagen and elastin in the skin. Using dermal filler, we can replace volume lost with ageing in this area, to create a more refreshed and youthful appearance.
How much product is needed?
This depends entirely upon the depth of the lines which you are seeking to disguise. A client with deeper lines would require 1-2ml per side, while someone with faint lines may only require 0.5ml each side. We can recommend the appropriate amount for your nose filler during the consultation stage of your appointment.
What products are used?
At Second Look Aesthetics, we use Revolax Deep for nasolabial folds treatments in the East Midlands.
How long does the treatment of the nasolabial folds take?
This nose filler treatment takes around 20 minutes to complete. This includes a consultation so that we can gain a better understanding of any areas of concern and establish an effective treatment plan. Following this, we will recommend the appropriate amount depending on the depth of the lines, numb the area and administer the treatment.
How long do results last?
Your results will last 9-12 months. This will vary depending on the individual client, as someone with a fast metabolism will find they do not last as long, while someone with a slower metabolism will find they last longer. The more treatments that you have, the longer your results will last as you achieve a build-up of product.
Are there any side effects?
The most common side effects of nose filler are very minimal. You may notice minimal bruising, swelling, tenderness and redness in the days following your treatment. Most clients experience no downtime and any symptoms can be easily managed with over-the-counter medication. Full healing will take 1-2 weeks at which point you should have no remaining side effects. We will provide full aftercare instructions following your treatment and our team is on hand to assist at any point should you have any discomfort or concerns.
Is the treatment painful?
This nasolabial folds treatment in Nottingham will cause no to mild discomfort. We use clinical grade numbing cream to ensure your comfort during treatment and there is Lidocaine in the dermal filler to further numb the area as the product is being injected.
