Nasolabial folds are the lines that run from the outer corners of the nose to the edges of your mouth. Marionette lines extend vertically from the mouth corners down onto the chin area. If these areas bother you, dermal fillers can be used to fill in these lines and folds while also improving skin flexibility and texture.

Am I a good candidate for this treatment?

Lines around the nose and mouth are signs of aging that develop as you lose natural facial volume and skin elasticity. Deeper creases in these areas can make you look drawn and much older. You may be a good candidate for dermal filler injections if you want to smooth nasolabial folds and marionette lines to create a more youthful and attractive appearance without undergoing surgery.

What can I expect with nasolabial fold and marionette line filler injections?

Before your injections, a topical numbing cream will be applied to the treatment area. Dr. Mesa performs the injections according to your individually personalized treatment plan, using a very fine needle or cannula (thin hollow tube). Injectable fillers increase volume in the area, creating lift, filling in skin irregularities, and reducing the appearance of marionette lines and nasolabial folds.

Is there any recovery after nasolabial fold and marionette line filler injections?

You can resume your usual activities soon after your filler injections. You may experience some swelling and redness which should subside within two to three days. Results are visible immediately, although it may take a few days for the optimal result to become visible.

What types of fillers are used to treat marionette lines and nasolabial folds?

Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvéderm, Versa, and RHA are frequently used to smooth out smile lines. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that attracts moisture to the area and makes the skin appear fuller, plumper, and firmer. Hyaluronic acid diminishes as we age, causing the skin to lose volume and increasing wrinkles and folds.

How long do fillers last for nasolabial folds and marionette lines?

The type of filler that is used and other factors will determine how long your results will last. For example, Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC, a popular filler for treating nasolabial folds and marionette lines, can last for up to 12 months. RHA filler can last for up to 18 months.

How often will I need injections for nasolabial fold and marionette line fillers?

Maintenance treatments can help prolong your results with dermal fillers for marionette lines and nasolabial folds. Receiving follow-up treatments with smaller and more frequent injections can help ensure treatment areas maintain their volume over time and helps the skin maintain a consistent, natural appearance. The time between treatments varies from person to person and depends on the thickness of the filler used.
