Commonly known as smile lines or laugh lines, nasolabial folds are deep creases that form from the nose to the corners of our mouths. These can be corrected using dermal fillers, which restore volume and help achieve a youthful, balanced appearance.
Nasolabial Folds are deep creases that form from the nose to the corners of our mouths. These wrinkles form as collagen production reduces with age, and repeated movement of facial expressions takes a toll on the skin. The appearance of Nasolabial Folds can easily be reduced with dermal filler. Our cosmetic Injectors use premium dermal fillers to inject the area around the cheeks and lips where volume loss has occurred, smoothening the deep folds adding volume and reducing the appearance of Nasolabial Folds marionette lines to achieve a refreshed and youthful appearance.
Before any treatment, a comprehensive complimentary consultation is required with a Skin Rejuvenate Cosmetic Injector to discuss your concerns, goals and expectations. With this information, a personalised treatment plan.
Dermal filler treatments can involve some discomfort. To reduce this, a prescription numbing cream is provided for certain treatment areas. The treatment involves the injection of the gel-like fluid through small needles or cannulas into areas of concern, using different techniques to disperse the filler in a smooth and uniform way. The effect is immediate, but swelling may occur for 24 to 48 hours, so the full results might not be noticeable until then. It may take 3 to 4 weeks for the dermal filler to stabilise and fully settle into the skin.
A follow-up consultation at this time is recommended to assess the results and review your treatment plan. Like any medical procedure, there are risks involved. Your Skin Rejuvenate Cosmetic Injector will discuss all risks and contraindications prior to performing any treatment.
Avoid vigorous physical activity or any large intakes of alcohol for 24 hours as this increases the risk of bruising. Ibuprofen, Aspirin and Vitamin E should not be taken one week before the treatment.
After booking and confirming your treatment, please make sure to complete the requested forms. On the day of your treatment, arrive with clean, makeup-free skin. Please be on time, or even a bit early, if you want to really impress us.
Normal activities can be resumed following treatment with dermal fillers. Full aftercare instructions will be provided by your Skin Rejuvenate Cosmetic Injector. To reduce the risks of side effects and obtain the best possible results, adhere to these precautions.

The most common side effects occur within 24 hours or immediately post-treatment. These include swelling, bruising, redness, and tenderness.
