Nasolabial Folds: Correction of the folds without fillers and scalpel

Nasolabial folds are best described as the two skin folds on the side of the nose and corner of the mouth. It is said that as a person ages, the fold becomes more pronounced, but not always. Nasolabial folds can also form in young people due to genetic predisposition or excessive facial expressions, weight loss and bad habits. As a result, problem appears and hardly is hidden by makeup.



To get rid of wrinkles with the help of massage is unlikely to succeed; moreover, an unprofessional procedure can worsen the situation by stretching new folds. Don’t risk, it is better to ask professionals for help. They can offer a more delicate and effective solution.


 Lots of people use HA fillers to correct the wrinkles on the face but this method can in some cases only worsen the situation, making the face "heavy." Besides, fillers sometimes are not enough and to improve results it is better to combine them with threads.
