As we age, the buccal fat pad, located underneath the cheeks, loses its volume. This occurs all over the face, leading to a hollower, older looking appearance. Some describe it as ‘gaunt’. This is a natural part of ageing, however external factors such as UV exposure, excess smoking and drinking and dehydration can exacerbate this process. In order to counter this natural decline in volume, dermal filler treatments can help to fill wrinkles and restore skin to a smoother, youthful state.
Between the nose and the outer corners of the mouth are the nasolabial folds. They are commonly known as laugh lines or smile lines. These are directly supported by the buccal fat pad, so as it diminishes, these wrinkles become more pronounced.

HOW DOES THE TREATMENT WORK?
During your one on one consultation, your doctor will assess the depth of the wrinkle and how much dermal filler to use during the treatment. They will then inject the dermal filler with thin needles; this, coupled with the included anesthetic in the filler makes the procedure minimally painful.
You will notice the effects of your treatment immediately, however the full effect will become apparent after 2 to 3 days. Please follow all after care instructions provided by your medical practitioner to ensure the best results.
Your dermal filler treatment for nasolabial folds will last for up to 4 to 9 months. After this time, we recommend a follow up with your M1 doctor.
