What are nasolabial folds, and what causes them to form?
Have you ever seen the reflection of your grandmother in the mirror? Chances are, it was just your nasolabial folds starting to show. What are nasolabial folds, you ask? They’re those pesky ones that mark the end of the cheeks, and they tend to show up as we get older. But what causes them to form in the first place? A combination of factors. As we age, the nasolabial fold gets deeper. This is due to the loss of collagen and elastin that causes our skin to become thinner and less able to bounce back after being stretched or pulled. So when we smile, laugh, or frown, the skin around our mouth starts to crease, eventually leading to those telltale nasolabial folds. There’s no way to completely prevent nasolabial folds from forming, but there are ways to minimize their appearance. So go ahead and smile – your grandmother will be proud.
What is the best filler to be used to correct nasolabial folds?
As we age, our skin ages as well, and collagen levels decrease, which can cause the formation of nasolabial folds. These folds can be deep and pronounced, leading to a tired or aged appearance. Fortunately, there are a number of different fillers that can be used to correct this problem. Hyaluronic acid fillers are widely used for nasolabial folds. They are effective at restoring volume and improving the contours of the face. Other types of fillers that can be used to correct nasolabial folds include collagen-based fillers and fat injections. Each type of filler is unique, and it is important to consult with us. With the help of today’s advanced medical technologies, you can say goodbye to your nasolabial folds and hello to a more youthful appearance.
How can PDO threads be used to correct nasolabial folds?
Nasolabial folds are a normal part of aging. As we age, the skin around our mouths and noses loses some elasticity, causing characteristic folds to form. While laugh lines can be a source of pride, indicating that we’ve lived a life full of laughter and happiness, many people treat them with dermal fillers or other cosmetic treatments.
One relatively new and promising treatment option is the use of PDO threads. PDO threads are made of polydioxanone, a material that is commonly used in surgical sutures. Once inserted into the skin, the threads help to lift and tighten the skin, reducing the appearance of nasolabial folds. The results are temporary, but they can last for several months before the threads need to be replaced. Additionally, PDO threads stimulate collagen production. If you’re interested in reducing the appearance of nasolabial folds, PDO threads may be worth considering.
The benefits of combining fillers and PDO threads to correct nasolabial folds
Nasolabial folds can be caused by several factors, including sun damage, weight loss, aging and repetitive facial expressions. Luckily, there are several ways to correct nasolabial folds, including fillers and PDO threads. Fillers help smooth out wrinkles, while PDO threads provide support and lift to sagging skin. Combining these two treatments makes it possible to achieve dramatic results that can last for months or even years. So if you wish to turn back the clock, remember to ask your doctor about fillers and PDO threads.
How long the results of a nasolabial fold correction will last
As anyone who has seen a “before” and “after” photo knows, the results of a nasolabial fold correction can be dramatic. But how long do these results last? The answer, as with so many things in life, is complicated. In general, the results of a nasolabial fold correction will last for several years. However, many factors can affect how long the results will last. For example, if the patient smokes, the results may last less long. In addition, the patient’s age and skin type can also play a role. Ultimately, however, the best way to ensure long-lasting results is to choose an experienced and qualified surgeon.
