What is Nasolabial Fold Filler?
Nasolabial filler, the active ingredient of which, is hyaluronic acid is applied onto the smile or laugh lines. The miserable expression on either side of the mouth is erased and your smile and the area around your mouth look younger.
The active ingredient of these fillers is hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid’s primary function is to trap water inside tissue cells, making the tissues look fuller and brighter on the site where it is injected.
The filler is injected into different layers of the skin depending on the depth of nasolabial folds. Hyaluronic acid makes its site of injection fuller as it can trap water. The deep lines that occur due to loss of tissue in the nasolabial area is filled, skin gets rejuvenated, is lifted and looks plumper and brighter.

The entire face is evaluated in terms of aesthetic ratio before the nasolabial filler is injected. As such, we may decide to lift the face up slightly with cheek bone filler and reduce smile or laugh lines before the nasolabial filler. It enables us to reduce the amount of filler to be injected into nasolabial folds, which in turn, takes the load off of the skin and makes it look more natural.
Differently from other filler procedures of ours, in nasolabial filler, we do not aim to inject the maximum amount of filler at once. We add less volume so that it yields natural and healthy results. It is monitored whether there is any change in the patient’s smile and mimics. Patient should not worry about if the depth of nasolabial lines is not eliminated at once and should be informed that the result will be visible after the following session. The procedure is completed at two sessions so that the patient’s face has a healthy and aesthetic appearance.
Filler procedures enable us to create immediate effect. Immediately after smile or laugh lines are filled in, the deep wrinkles around the mouth become less visible but it takes a longer time for filler to take effect fully.
