Nasolabial Fold Treatment in Newcastle
Nasolabial folds or nose to mouth lines are the lines that run from the side of our nose to the side of our mouth. Although they can be present from birth they often become more pronounced as we age as fat pads in the midface start to descend.
Will this area be treated directly?
This can be discussed at consultation however Dr.Kane will assess what will achieve optimum results for your face. Your mid face will be initially assessed and if there is deemed to be significant volume loss in this area then Dr.Kane may suggest treating this area first to achieve a more natural lift before treating the nasolabial folds directly.
Does it hurt to treat the nose to mouth lines?
This area is not usually sensitive. In addition Dr Kane has developed a number of methods to make the procedure as comfortable as possible. Numbing cream Is used as well as potentially injecting a small amount of numbing agent into the area to make the procedure as comfortable as possible.
Treatment for these nose to mouth lines often initially involves achieving a lift from the midface using filler to rejuvenate the undereye as well as providing subtle lift to the rest of the face. If this has already been achieved or the skin is deemed too lax then filler can be placed directly into this area to soften these lines. I use a 3D approach with a needle and cannula to achieve optimal, natural results.
The filler that we use is then eventually naturally broken down by the body over the course of approximately to 12 months
What is the downtime to the procedure?
There is no specific downtime to the procedure itself. Rarely there can be a small amount of swelling for the first day or two but not to the extent were it would prohibit daily activities
How long will the treatment of the nose to mouth lines last?
The results will last approximately 9-12 months
Will a cannula or needle be used?
To optimise clinical outcomes and safety a 3D approach involving a needle and cannula is used to achieve optimal results.
