At Feel Beautiful Plastic Surgery San Diego, Dr. Laverson incorporates several effective techniques to smooth “Nasal-Labial Folds,” also known as “smile lines,” or “parentheses lines.” These are furrows and/or creases in the skin that pass from the sides of your lower nose down to the corners of your lips. Their depth and apprearance depend on many factors, but everyone has them with a smile, and they generally deepen with age. If they are disproportionately deep, men and women may want them filled as early as age 25 to 35. Most people start to notice them deepening in their 40’s.
Smile Lines Treatment San Diego
Popular office treatments include gel fillers and hydroxylapatite. These instantly fill and smooth the nasolabial folds. The best product and the volume to be used depends on your complexion, your preferences, character of the creases, and other features. Brands we carry include Juvederm, Radiesse , Belotero , Sculptra, Perlane, and Restylane. Duration of effect is 6-12 months and even longer! Dr. Laverson completely anesthetizes the area before the ten minute treatment. He instills the product under surgical magnification for precision. There are alternatives for longer lasting resolution of these folds, but temporary filler is often recommended first to be sure you like the result!
