Nasolabial Folds

The nasolabial fold is the deep crease running from either side of the nose down to-wards the corners of the mouth. Also known as a “smile line,” this crease is created by repeated movement of the mouth. While it is attractive to have a little fold here, a deep fold can make you look older than you truly are.
This crease becomes more noticeable as part of the natural ageing process. Fat is lost from the cheeks, reducing skin volume and making this fold appear deeper. Repeated smiling or having a “big smile” may result in permanent, deep creases in this area. Even after you're no longer smiling, the line remains. Deep nasolabial folds can be corrected through injections of dermal filler into the surrounding area, restor-ing the lost volume and softening the appearance of these creases. The goal of nasola-bial fold injections is to even out the skin volume, leaving your skin feeling smoother.

Who is suitable to have this treatment?

If you are concerned about the appearance of your smile lines, this treatment may be right for you. People who are more mature or who are slim tend to have more pro-nounced nasolabial folds. Genetics also plays a role in the appearance of this area of your face. A nasolabial fold treatment can be performed on most adults, men or women, who are in good general health.

What to expect.

The nasolabial folds can be treated with injections of dermal filler, which fill in the skin from the inside. This in-office treatment takes less than an hour to perform. First, a topical anaesthetic cream may be applied or it may be included with the filler mate-rial when injected. Then, injections of dermal filler are delivered through a thin nee-dle into specified areas in the cheeks and mid-face. These injections increase the vol-ume of the skin, reducing the appearance of the nasolabial fold lines.
Patients can leave the office immediately after receiving the injections. There are no bandages needed, and patients can return to work immediately, making this a popular "lunchtime" rejuvenation treatment. The results are visible immediately, with addi-tional improvements in skin volume becoming noticeable in the week following the injections.

Am I a suitable candidate?

Most are suitable for this treatment. Medical history will be discussed during the initial consultation.

 

The effects of this treatment generally last 6-8 months.

Over time, the body gradually absorbs the injected material, causing the nasolabial folds to deepen again. Many patients undergo regular injections to maintain their re-juvenated appearance.

Cheek enhancement

As we age facial fat is lost and starts to migrate downwards on the face. This deepens the nasolabial folds. Dermal fillers can be used to restore plumpness to the cheeks creating a youthful appearance through facial contouring. This also lessens the appearance of nasolabial folds. Dermal fillers in the cheeks can also reduce cheek wrinkles.

What does the procedure involve?

Prior the treatment : Prescription anaesthetic numbing cream will be applied for 15-20 minutes prior the treatment to make the area numb for less discomfort.

The procedure : Dermal filler is injected at precise locations into your skin or lip. Dr. Emma will then massage to smooth and even out the product. You will be given a mirror to hold to enable you to see the results as the doctor completes the treatment.

 

Post treatment :  We advise to avoid touching or applying make up on the treated area for 6 hours in order to prevent infection. Specific post treatment instructions will be given to you on the day of your treatment.

The results are immediate and last from 6-12 months.  We provide  a complementary 1 week follow up review to ensure you are happy with your results. As the results are temporary, adjustments can be made as your face changes over time and you will always retain a beautiful natural look

 

Is the procedure painful?

The lips are undoubtedly a sensitive area. Our prescription numbing cream ensures minimal discomfort. In addition, we use the products which contain anaesthetic, therefore the treatment is relatively comfortable. Dr. Emma is highly experienced in this procedure and will ensure to make the treatment as comfortable as possible for you.

Will I see the results immediately?

After the procedure, the lips often become a little swollen. This means that the result immediately after the treatment may not be the final result. The swelling usually resolves all at once within a couple of days. To achieve the result you want, it is recommended to have a touch-up treatment 1 - 2 weeks after the initial session. This will also add to the duration of the treatment effect

How long will the results last?

The result last on average from 6 to 12 months. The lasting time of these products is variable and as we all have different metabolism rates and the product is broken down differently for everyone. A plan for regular follow-up treatments to maintain the initial result can be created for you. Our treatment provides a long-lasting but not permanent result leaving you the option of refining your treatment in accordance with what you desire at a particular point in time.

We are very excited to introduce our new dermal filler treatment, the multipoint facelift.

 

What is Multipoint facelift?

The Multipoint facelift is a technique used to restore lift in 8 strategic areas, giving maximal lift and support using a relatively small amount of dermal filler. The results are instant, with minimal discomfort or downtime. 

The treatment uses dermal fillers to enhance and discreetly lift the face for a total rejuvenating effect and targets key areas of the mid-face to lift, contour and revitalise the whole mid-face and lower face.

What areas does it target?

This method works very nicely for most people because it addresses 2 key aspects of facial aging:

1. Midface volume loss – skin sagging or face ‘dropping’ and tired looking under eye area.

2. Creases and lines and shadows in the mid and lower face – jowls forming along the jawline. 

The Treatment

The Multipoint Lift combats the soft tissue loss associated with the ageing process and offers a more complete solution compared to individual dermal filler treatments.

The 8 strategic lifting points are a general guideline, which will be tailored to your needs. A personalised consultation is necessary to determine the best ‘total look’ for your face. The 8 key areas include:

  • 1&2: Cheek bone/structure: A small amount of volume in the area enhances the cheekbones and often helps to lift the nasolabial folds.
  • 3: Tear trough/midface: Reduces the appearance of tired hollows under the eyes. If you have significant hollows you may need additional product with a softer, more flexible dermal filler to help with this. Your injector will determine if this additional treatment is suitable for you.
  • 4: Nasolabial fold: This area often deepens with age, so adding volume here can help give a more youthful appearance.  
  • 5: Marionette Lines / Mouth corners: The down turning of the mouth with age gives a ‘down frown’. Using dermal filler in this area can lift the face. 
  • 6. Prejowl area: Loss of volume in the jaw, cheek and chin area can all contribute to jowl formation, so replacing volume in the hollow along the jawline, along with the other areas of the 8 Point Lift, can all help to reduce or improve jowls. 
  • 7. Jawline: As we age, we lose the angle of the jaw, which helps to lift and support the lower face, so the lower face starts to fall forward, contributing to jowls and sagging. A subtle enhancement of the angle of the jaw can help lift these areas. If you have significant loss of volume in this area you may require more product, and different techniques to get best results. 
  • 8. Lower cheek volume: Hollowing in the lower cheek area can make us look gaunt, while treating this area with filler can help with improve the natural curve and structure of the cheek. 

How long will the results last for? 

Results are instant and last for 12-18 months. There is no downtime associated with the procedure but the client may have some mild bruising at the injection site in the days following treatment. 

SKIN BOOSTERS

Look forward to a healthy glow and lasting deep skin hydration

Restylane Skinboosters treatments create luminous skin in a natural way by gently and naturally smoothening the skin from the inside. It works by increasing the hydration within the skin to provide lasting moisture and improve the skin’s surface.

Hydrating microinjections

Each treatment involves a series of hydrating microinjections of long-lasting hyaluronic acid, also called stabilised HA, a water-loving substance found naturally in the body that maintains hydration in the skin.
Stabilised HA is a soft, gel-like substance that absorbs water and brings deep skin hydration to the treated areas, giving it improved firmness, elasticity and smoothness. What you and everyone else will see is a wonderful and radiant skin.

Skin quality

Over time, the quality of your skin changes – collagen and elastic fibers disintegrate, and the spread and function of the body’s own hyaluronic acid change, making your skin drier, rougher and less elastic.

Treatment areas

Restylane Skinboosters treatments can be used to improve the general skin quality of your face but also to improve exposed and sensitive areas such as your neck, décolletage and hands as well as areas with acne-scarred skin.

Treatment program

A typical treatment program with Restylane Skinboosters is made up of three initial treatment sessions with 2 to 4 weeks apart. The initial 3-treatment program is done once and after that one treatment about every 6 months is recommended.
