The nasolabial folds are caused by sagging of the upper face when the cheek muscles relax, lose elasticity, and push on the lower front. The power around the mouth is a foundation for connecting all other forces. Due to gravity, aging, and muscle inactivity, the heavier cheek muscles fall through the muscle around the mouth, creating folds and lines.

Filler material – hyaluronic acid is applied to a selected part of the nose-mouth area, which removes unwanted folds and wrinkles. The result of the treatment comes immediately.

Duration of effect: approximately one year

For whom the procedure is intended: for clients with significant nasolabial folds who need to be removed.

Adverse effects: a slight swelling and a small bruise may occur after the injection, which will disappear within a few days.

Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid has become a viral filler component in aesthetic medicine. It has replaced the less ideal and synthetic filler materials used. Aesthetic medicine clients especially expect the naturalness and reversibility of treatments.

Therefore, hyaluronic acid belongs to current trends and forms part of filling materials, and it is of non-animal origin. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the human body and is an integral part of the skin – it ensures its elasticity and captures free radicals. Therefore, the current trend is absorbable filler materials based on hyaluronic acid of non-animal origin.

Hyaluronic acid is a natural part of the human body and an essential part of the skin (responsible for its tension and absorbs free oxygen radicals). It gives the skin elasticity, a youthful appearance and contributes to hydration and repair processes.

During aging, hyaluronic acid production decreases, worsening the skin’s condition. The result is less elastic skin, sagging, and increased wrinkles.

Filling wrinkles with hyaluronic acid is one of the most effective and safest approaches nowadays because the body accepts this component well. Moreover, applying hyaluronic acid is almost painless and safe compared to plastic surgery and its interventions. Another advantage is the instant result.

Course of treatment

Application is performed with local anesthesia application of creams containing a local anesthetic. The application site is disinfected, and the filling material is applied in the necessary amount under the doctor’s control to fill the wrinkles.

The harsh treatment takes approximately 15 minutes and does not require sick leave. The place is red for some time after the procedure, and swelling or bruises may appear. Within three days, all possible inconveniences will disappear.

After application, the effect lasts six months to a year, sometimes even longer. It depends on the quality of the applied preparation, the place of application, individual facial expressions, and other factors.

Preparations applied to the grooves near the nose and mouth tend to last longer than application to the lips, as there is a faster natural breakdown of the practice.

The material breaks down faster for clients with lively facial expressions, those who smoke, who have a habit of chewing gum, etc. When the material is gradually removed, the process can be repeated and replenished.
