Nasolabial lines, often called smile lines or laugh lines, are creases or wrinkles that appear around the sides of the mouth and extend to the nose. These lines become more prominent as we age due to reduced skin elasticity and collagen. Our expert cosmetic dermatologists at Novomed Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Al Ain offer advanced and personalized treatments to address nasolabial lines effectively and help you achieve a more youthful and rejuvenated facial appearance.
What are Nasolabial Lines?
Nasolabial folds or lines are the creases extending from the nose’s sides to the mouth’s corners. They are also called smile lines or laugh lines. The lines are primarily caused by factors such as natural ageing, sun exposure, facial expressions, and genetic predisposition.
- Aging: As we age, the skin loses collagen and elastin, reducing skin elasticity and volume. This results in the formation of wrinkles and folds, including nasolabial lines.
- Sun Exposure: The breakdown of collagen in the skin results in premature ageing and emergence of smile lines, which can be expedited by extended sun exposure.
- Facial Expressions: Repeated facial movements, such as smiling and laughing, can contribute to forming these lines over time.
- Smoking: Smoking destroys the naturally produced collagen and elastin, leading to the skin losing its essential supple-boosting components.
- Weight loss or gain: Losing a substantial amount of weight can lead to excess, lax skin, while weight gain can result in fuller cheeks. In both scenarios, nasolabial folds can become more prominent and noticeable.
Nasolabial Lines Treatment at Novomed
Novomed offers a range of advanced treatments to address nasolabial lines effectively. Our treatments are tailored to each patient’s unique needs and desired outcomes. Here’s an overview of the treatments available at our dermatology clinics:
- Dermal Fillers: Novomed uses FDA-approved dermal fillers like hyaluronic acid-based products to fill in and smooth out nasolabial lines. By adding volume and moisture to the skin, these fillers rejuvenate its appearance, diminish wrinkles, and restore a more youthful contour. Popular fillers include hyaluronic acid, polylactic acid, calcium hydroxyapatite and polymethyl-methacrylate microspheres (PMMA).
- Botox and Dysport: To address dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle movement, our dermatologists provide treatments like Botox and Dysport. These neuromodulators relax the facial muscles responsible for forming smile lines, resulting in a smoother appearance.
- Laser Resurfacing: Novomed utilizes state-of-the-art laser technology to stimulate collagen production and improve skin texture. Laser resurfacing can help reduce the depth of nasolabial lines and enhance overall skin quality.
- PRP Therapy: Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy involves using the patient’s own blood components to stimulate collagen production and rejuvenate the skin. It can be used in combination with other treatments for optimal results.
- Thread Lifts: Novomed offers thread lift procedures that involve the placement of dissolvable threads under the skin to lift and tighten sagging tissues. This can help reduce the prominence of smile lines.
- Retinoids: To diminish smile lines over time, consider the application of retinoids, a chemical variant of vitamin C. This can stimulate collagen production when applied to your skin.
- Surgery: Cosmetic surgery offers effective solutions for repositioning and reshaping your skin and the underlying tissues to reduce the prominence of nasolabial folds. Procedures such as a cheek lift or facelift are viable options to consider.
By offering a range of advanced and personalized treatments, Novomed helps individuals rejuvenate their smiles and regain their confidence. Whether you’re concerned about smile lines due to ageing or want to address them for aesthetic reasons, Novomed’s team of experts are ready to assist you in achieving your desired results.
