Smile Lines / Nasolabial Folds

For most of us, smile lines — also known as nasolabial folds — are nothing to smile about. These lines and creases run from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth, and are the result of the loss of facial volume and skin elasticity as we age. These nasolabial folds can make you look older, tired or unhappy—even though you feel youthful on the inside.

More Info

By far, the most common treatment for nasolabial folds is a hyaluronic acid filler.  There are 3 main classes:

  • Permanent fillers, such as Bellafill, have the advantage of being, well, permanent. In addition, Bellafill in particular has been FDA approved for use in the nasolabial folds.
  • Temporary hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Restylane, and Juvéderm Family are typically injected into the mid-to-deep layers of the skin to plump up nasolabial folds. Results typically last 9-12 months.
  • Collagen stimulators, such as Radiesse and Sculptra Aesthetic, are for patients with less severe nasolabial folds. Think of Radiesse and Sculptra as best for gently rounding out an aging face that has been gradually losing volume for years. Results will last 6-12 months.
