Nasolabial lines. Smoothing of nasolabial folds with hyaluronic acid fillers.
Nasolabial folds are called those lines that start from the wings of the nose and continue down to the corners of the lips. Also called lines of laughter. They deepen with age and give the face a tired look. They are often the reason for the first visit to the dermatologist's office.
It is worth noting that in most cases the deepening of the nasolabial folds is a consequence, not a root cause. Many people notice their progression after a sudden weight loss. They are most often formed during the reduction of fat deposits and relaxation of the ligament apparatus in middle facial floor, therefore in these cases their correction is carried out by restoring these lost volumes. Only then, if necessary, it is appropriate to inject the product into the fold itself. Strengthening the middle part of the face is crucial and is one of the most beneficial adjustments because it leads to significant improvement in the area of the mandible, nasolabial and marionette lines.
Rarely nasolabial lines are expressed genetically, by inheritance and are visible from an early age. The same goes for people with strong facial expressions - then they are known as "lines of laughter". In these cases, the injection of a product directly into nasolabial folds.

How the procedure for filling nasolabial folds is done
As already mentioned, direct injection of filler in the nasolabial lines is resorted to only if there is no loss of volume in the middle part of the face. The area is pre-anesthetized with lidocaine cream or infiltrative. A cannula is inserted through a small hole and filled with filler step by step from the top to the base. The procedure is painless, you can only feel the movement of the cannula and the penetration of the filler into the tissues. Then apply a moderate massage. The procedure takes about 20-30 minutes and the effect lasts about 8-12 months.
When using a cannula, the formation of bruises and hematomas is rare. There may be a slight swelling that will go away in 2-3 days. Anesthesia is not necessary. You can feel the filler within a week. Do not massage the treated area unless specifically instructed to do so. Stop visiting solariums, saunas, steam baths in the next few days. It is important to drink more water - about 1.5-2 liters to unleash the full potential of the filler.

Review of Dr. Stavrov, aesthetic dermatologist in Sofia
Filling nasolabial folds is one of the most desirable aesthetic procedures. I personally observe the best results when using hyaluronic acid fillers. And if in the past this was achieved by direct injection into the folds themselves, now, with increasing our knowledge of aging and facial anatomy, the preferred method is to restore the volume in the middle facial floor. I prefer to act in stages, leaving between the individual procedures a time of several weeks in which the applied filler binds water and swells. So we can use its full capacity and I often manage to save 1 ml to be used in another direction.Dr. Konstantin Stavrov, co-owner of the clinic Dr. Stavrov Aesthetics in Sofia
