The nasolabial folds, more commonly referred to as smile lines, are the noticeable skin folds that extend from around the bottom of the nose to the corners of the mouth. The nasolabial folds can occur naturally in some people due to the underlying structural elements of their face.
As we age, our skin slowly loses its strength and elasticity due to our bodies’ decreased amount of essential structural proteins like collagen and elastin. This causes the skin to sag, which makes the nasolabial folds form and can exaggerate their appearance.
Facial plastic and reconstructive plastic surgeon Dr. Jeff Jumaily can reduce the appearance of the nasolabial folds using facial fillers like Juvederm. If your beauty is being disturbed by unsightly nasolabial folds, contact us to schedule a consultation.
