How to Get Rid of Nasolabial Folds Non-Surgically

Smile lines, also known as nasolabial folds, begin to appear during your 20s and are relatively typical by the time you hit your late 30s or early 40s. Their formation is largely due to genetics, sun exposure, and facial volume loss. Although smile lines, as their name implies, are a result of frequent expressions of glee or joy, their appearance can actually make you look older than your true age.

At Northcoast Laser Cosmetics, clients ask us about non-surgical options for reducing the appearance of smile lines. Nasolabial Folds Non-Surgically The following treatment options have been shown to work extremely well in reducing the creases and folds that run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth:

Facial fillers

Fillers containing hyaluronic acid such as Juvederm and Restylane significantly reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds. Generally, fillers work by pushing the folds outward for a smoother, more youthful looking appearance. Sculptra is another filler that not only replaces volume but also stimulates the body to produce new collagen.

Laser treatments

Moderate to deep wrinkles around the mouth can also be reduced through laser treatments. Like fillers, multiple treatments may be required to achieve long-lasting results. At our practice, we primarily use ClearLift™, a non-ablative laser skin resurfacing technology that is preferable to ablative types because it doesn’t harm the surrounding skin structure.
