Nasolabial folds, known as “smile lines”, form at the bottom of the nose to the corners of the mouth.
Over time as we age, these lines deepen as the top lip contracts upwards. This facial movement creates an appearance of heavy cheeks and a more pronounced smile. Typically, with the movement of the levator muscles in over contraction, the lips invert and show the gums. Julie treats this area with HA filler if a client has concerns of an over egaggerated or “gummy” smile. Treating the nasolabial folds will also make the nose appear smaller. It inhibits pronounced nasal flaring and turns the tip of the nose upwards. The procedure is only done with a cannula for safety purposes. There is minimal downtime or bruising with this procedure. Results typically last from 2-5 years post procedure.
