Dermal Fillers- Nasolabia
Dermal filler can be used to lift and treat the nasolabial folds, which occur with ageing and volume loss in the cheek area. Injections will make the area look smoother and younger, with less of a demarcation between the cheeks and the lower face.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a pain relief during treatment?
A numbing cream (eg EMLA or LMX ) may be applied to the area prior to the treatment. Glad wrap may be used over the numbing cream to increase its effect.
There is local anaesthetic in the dermal filler
What happens during the injectables treatment itself?
The area will be cleaned with alcohol, then Jade with use a needle with syringe to implant tiny droplets of filler in the desired areas. Ice packs may be applied to keep the area cool. The whole injection process takes about 15 minutes.
How will I look after dermal filler in the Nasolacia?
This is different for everyone, some client may look a tiny bit red where as others you cannot even tell.
Are there any side effects /risks with dermal fillers in the nasolabia?
Bruising: occurs in few number of cases.
Swelling: in the injection area may occur. This will last for approx 48 hours
Tyndall Effect:Blue appearance of the dermal filler under the skin
Lumps:Our implantation and massage technique means this is unlikely
Asymmetry: Sometimes one side is better treated than the other, this is usually because the patient is asymmetrical to start with. Nasolabia folds are notoriously asymmetrical. Most patients will have different doses to each side of the nasolabial folds
Infection: is a very rare complication, but always a possibility when the needle goes into the skin.
Necrosis: (blood vessel being blocked, interfering with blood supply to the skin) is very rare. This could lead to scarring.
Need for further treatment: It may take several syringes of product to get to where the patient wants to be.
Instructions for care afterward?
- No makeup for 6 hours
- No heavy exercise that day
- No acid face products for 24 hours
- No spas no saunas, no hot yoga for 2-3 days post treatment
What to expect after the nasolabial fold dermal filler treatment?
The effect of the dermal filler will be obvious immediately
Most of the swelling from the dermal filler will have resolved by 2-3 days after the procedure. There may be a small amount of swelling for even 2-4 weeks after the procedure.
Bruising will last 7-8 days
What if I get asymmetry at some time before the 2 week point? Do I call Jade?
No. No need to call Jade. Sometimes asymmetry will occur because one side is more swollen or bruised. Usually it will right itself by the time of the review appointment. If it doesn’t, then it can be examined at the review appointment. There is no point in coming in early for treatment of asymmetry as there is often swelling associated and so the final result cannot be seen until at least 2 weeks. Treating asymmetry too early could lead to further asymmetry
How long will the treatment last?
The answer to this is very individual and depends on the patient’s anatomy, metabolism, the dose, the placement, the product etc.
Dermal filler can be used to lift and treat the nasolabial folds, which occur with ageing and volume loss in the cheek area.
Injections will make the area look smoother and younger, with less of a demarcation between the cheeks and the lower face. Nasolabial folds are the lines from the lower nose corner to the corner of the mouth.
Many patients are concerned about the appearance of their nasolabial folds, even from a very early age, and this concern intensifies over time. They can be concerned about the fold, or the wrinkle or both. Dermal filler can be used to address these issues.
TREATMENT OF NASOLABIAL FOLDS WITH DERMAL FILLERS
Choosing the type of dermal filler for the nasolabial fold
We use several different types of dermal fillers in the hands.
Dose of dermal fillers
The dose required for nasolabial filling is variable, it depends on the patient’s anatomy, and where the patient wants to get to in terms of results.
Jade will assess the nasolabial folds and decide on the best dose after taking a history and examining the client. If a client has a history of complications with dermal fillers, or if their budget is small or if they want a more subtle result, then a smaller amount might be chosen to start with.
