For a name so joyful, laugh lines aren’t as great as they sound. Nasolabial folds, also known as laugh lines, are the lines around the mouth that are accentuated when we smile or laugh. With strategically placed filler, these pesky folds can be smoothed away.

Nasolabial folds, also known as laugh lines, become more prominent as we age.


Laugh lines are the folds or wrinkles that run from the outer corners of the nose the corners of the mouths. They are also called nasolabial folds. The formation of laugh lines is due to the natural processes of aging.


Although the formation of laugh lines occurs partially due to aging of the skin causing creases, aging in the cheeks also affects the severity of nasolabial folds. As we age, the fat pads in the cheeks lose volume and support. The cheek fat pads descend downwards and deepens the folds around the cheeks. Some of the risk factors for premature worsening of nasolabial folds are smoking, sun exposure, weight fluctuations, and sleeping on your side.

The gradual appearance of laugh lines occurs because of the natural process of aging.


Dermal fillers injected into the nasolabial region gently lift up the laugh lines and soften the appearance of the fold. Dermal fillers are soft gels that are injected into the face to sculpt the face and remove lines and folds. Nasolabial fillers can be performed in a clinic with almost no downtime. The results of nasolabial filler can be appreciated immediately.

As mentioned earlier, the sagging of the fat pads in the cheek contributes to the worsening appearance of the nasolabial folds as we age. One way to address the root cause of laugh lines is to lift the cheeks with cheek filler. Cheek fillers can lift the face so laugh lines and dark eye circles are corrected simultaneously.
