Nasolabial folds, commonly referred to as smile lines, are creases on the sides of the nose that extend to the corners of the mouth creating an undesired “parentheses” appearance. Many individuals experience this as they age and their skin looses collagen which leads to loss of elasticity. Nasolabial folds often deepen over time, leaving one’s appearance as tired or aged.
Dr. Darvish can reduce or eliminate these undesirable nasolabial folds non-surgically with dermal fillers. Juvederm, Restylane and Perlane are temporary dermal fillers that can last up to 12 months. These fillers are comprised of hyaluronic acids, a substance found naturally in the human body, so there is no possibility of an allergic reaction.
For those seeking a longer lasting dermal filler, Radiesse can last up to 18 months. This calcium-based filler is safely reabsorbed by your body over time.
