Nasolabial Folds

Nasolabial folds can make up part of the facial features and are the folds of skin that run from the edges of the nose to the outer corners of the mouth. The appearance of this feature can often act to separate the cheeks from the upper lip, with the internal structure of the face working to control how well they are defined. Many people have noticeable nasolabial folds that can become more pronounced over time, as genetics and the ageing process lead to changes in the structure and appearance of the skin.

The skin naturally loses collagen and elastin as the body gets older. This causes the skin to lose volume, hydration and its youthful stretchy properties. From this process the skin can develop lines and wrinkles, accentuating the nasolabial folds that make up part of a set of facial wrinkles, known affectionately as laughter lines. Facial volume loss and sagging skin can also contribute to the nasolabial folds becoming more prominent. The cheeks can also flatten out as part of the ageing process, resulting in a sagging of the skin that pulls down towards the mouth. The ageing process can be affected by other lifestyle factors, including: sun exposure, alcohol consumption, poor diet and smoking. The rate at which collagen and elastin fibres breakdown within the skin’s structure can be more rapid under the influence of these contributors, bringing forward the visible effects of ageing.

Applying a suitable SPF on a daily basis and maintaining a regular skin care regime can help to keep the skin in good condition and support pausing the signs of ageing. However, if prominent nasolabial folds are causing you concern, Light Touch Clinic can help overcome this through a number of options. Facial fillers can plump out areas where volume loss has occurred, softening lines and creases. They can also help to lift skin that has started to sag. Creating a lifted effect can also be achieved through skin tightening techniques such as ULTRAcel, INTRAcel and Tixel. Rejuvenating and resurfacing the skin through Profhilo, facials and IPL can restore healthy skin cells, encourage the production of collagen for improved skin quality.
