Nasolabial pleats, or braces, are deep pleats that flow from the wings of the nose to the angle of the mouth. Nasolabial plaques are known as “smile lines” or “laugh lines”. These are the two nasolabial grooves of the skin that separate the upper lip cheeks. These folds grow as we grow older and we can be one of the first visible signs of aging the face. Therefore, nasal swabs are also one of the first areas of the face targeted by rejuvenation or anti-aging procedures of the face.
With aging, folds may become more pronounced. The most important factors contributing to the prominence of skin folds are relaxation and ptoza, excess of oral fat and perioral muscular ptoza.
The goal in any treatment of nasolabial canals with a decrease in STI depth makes the appearance more smooth and younger.
There are many choices if you are considering the nasolabial correction. These include injectable fillers, excision of nasolabial grooves and certain types of facial lifting.
Facelift can be helpful in lifting the cheeks back to their proper position. Filling agents are an excellent solution if you want to avoid or delay the operation.
Various fillers include hyaluronic acid agents (e.g., Restylane, Juvederm etc.), calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres (Radiesse) and polymethylmethacrylate microspheres (Artefill). Because hyaluronic fillings are injected into skin tissue layers containing numerous nerve endings. The bridge of these agents should contain lidocaine (local anesthetic) to reduce pain in the procedure.
