Nasolabial lines are those which extend from the nose to the mouth and they can occur in the early 20’s. They turn into deeper lines and folds as the face ages. They can be eliminated or their appearance can be softened, by painless injection of dermal filler, which plumps them back out and increases the collagen production beneath them.
Marionette folds appear as unwanted shadows and can extend from the corner of the mouth to the jaw line, often joining up with the nasolabial lines. They often start to appear in the mid 40’s and they make a face look older and heavier around the mouth. Jowls appear. The corners of the mouth often get dragged down too, causing the appearance of ‘sad mouth’. Painless dermal filler injections can be used to eliminate or soften their appearance, and push the corners of the mouth back up.
