Nasolabial Folds Before and After Gallery

What Results Can I Expect?

Open before and after gallery

The nasolabial fold is the crease that starts from the corner of the nose and runs diagonally down the the corner of the mouth. With age, the fold becomes deeper and forms a shadow that can make the face look tired. Nasolabial folds can be treated using dermal filler or threads to smooth the fold and reduce the shadow. When using dermal fillers, we have two key approaches to treating the nasolabial folds. The first approach is to lift dropping cheeks by injecting filler along the cheekbone; this helps to lift the heavy skin that forms the nasolabial fold. The second approach is to inject dermal filler directly into the nasolabial fold; this helps to reduce the depth of the fold and give an instantly smoother appearance to the area.

At the Dr Tatiana Clinic, we ensure that only highly trained doctors or surgeons carry out dermal filler treatments, so you can be sure that you are getting the highest possible standard of care. When considering a dermal filler treatment, we recommend that you start by booking in a consultation with the doctor. During the consultation we will assess the area of concern, answer any of your questions, show you examples of our work and develop an effective treatment plan for you.

On the day of treatment your doctor will confirm the treatment plan, take you through the consent process and take some pre-treatment photographs. The skin will be cleaned and numbing cream or anaesthetic injections will be applied. Once the skin is numb, the doctor will start the treatment. The process of injection is normally no longer than 10 minutes. After treatment, the doctor will apply aftercare cream, massage the filler and show you the results. We will also discuss how best to look after the area that has been treated. The receptionist will then offer you a review appointment and send you an email confirming the aftercare instructions.

Dermal filler treatments are suitable for restoring lost volume and enhancing features. If this is a treatment that you are considering, we advise that you speak to one of our experienced doctors for advice. Fillers are suitable for any skin type.

There are several circumstances in which fillers would not be advised: pregnancy, breastfeeding, certain health problems, active acne or infection in the area of treatment, history of allergy to dermal fillers or other products used in the treatment. The suitability of treatment will be discussed during your consultation.

Dermal fillers do not require a patch-test.

Optimal results can often be achieved in one to two session. If you require further treatment, then this is normally done after 2 weeks to allow any swelling or bruising to dissipate.

The longevity of results will often depend on the area treated, product used and individual metabolism. On average, most patients will only need to repeat treatment once every 9-12 months.

The injections themselves are not painful. We provide numbing cream, numbing injections and skin cooling to minimise any discomfort. Most of our dermal fillers also have anaesthetic mixed in with the filler in order to provide further pain relief.

As with any injection, it is possible that you may experience some redness, swelling, tenderness and bruising. These may take a 2-3 days to resolve and bruises sometimes longer. We advise that you don’t plan treatments around important commitments and allow at least 2 weeks between treatment and an important social or work event.

Our injectable treatments are performed by fully trained and experienced doctors and surgeons. You can rest assured that you are getting the highest standard of care by every member of our team.

Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Teosyal, Restylane and Belotero can be dissolved. Dissolving involves and injection of water that contains Hyaluronidase enzyme. This enzyme disintegrates filler quickly and painlessly, to return your skin to normal.

We recommend that you avoid taking blood thinning tablets such as aspirin or ibuprofen (unless prescribed by your doctor) for 3 days prior to treatment. We also advise avoiding alcohol intake for 24 hours prior to treatment. It is also important that you are available for follow-up after treatment, so we recommend not to book injectable treatment if you are travelling in the next two weeks.

Our dermal filler prices start from £380.
