The nasolabial fold is the indent between your cheeks and nose that is enhanced when you smile, which is why they are called “smile lines.” When you are younger, the skin bounces back after each smile, and the nasolabial fold is smooth when the face is relaxed. As you get older and the skin loses elasticity, and the nasolabial fold becomes etched into the skin and face. Our aesthetic team at LM Medical NYC offers nasolabial folds treatment with facial filler injections at our clinics in Manhattan.

Smile lines, mouth parentheses, or nasolabial folds all are the same lines that appear around the nose and mouth as you get older. Collagen in the skin wanes beginning as early as the 20s, allowing the skin to lose elasticity. These lines are very common and often one of the first signs of aging on the face. Hyaluronic acid fillers offer a quick and effective treatment to smooth mild to severe nasolabial folds to rejuvenate the mouth and nose area.

Smile Line Treatment

The trick to smoothing smile lines with cosmetic injections is finding the right dermal filler. The formula should be dense and firm enough to add volume to fill the nasolabial fold while still allowing natural movement when you smile and talk. There are several different formulas that are used for smile lines. The best one depends on the severity of the lines and other factors. Results can last from several months to over a year, depending on the product used.

Dr. Morgan is a world-renowned cosmetic injection expert, and Dr. Lesley is one of the top facial plastic surgeons in NYC. Both can recommend and perform nasolabial fold treatment using the best facial filler to create natural, youthful results. If you have smile lines you want smoothed away, contact us at LM Medical NYC. We can schedule your nasolabial fold consultation or treatment at our clinics in Greenwich Village or the Upper East Side.
