The nasolabial filler is a filler treatment applied to eliminate the lines descending from the nose wings to the edge of the mouth. These lines, which deepen over time due to aging, genetic and environmental factors, cause changes in facial expression; an unhappy and sad expression may occur on the face. People who complain about this situation can get rid of these negative effects by choosing the nasolabial filler procedure. Nasolabial filler recovers the fat loss that causes the formation of a deep line extending from the nose wings to the edge of the mouth and eliminates the deepening lines in this area by providing the required volume. The nasolabial filler is the most painless, practical, and successful method for removing deep lines.
What to Consider When Having Nasolabial Filler? What Kind of Filling Should Be Preferred?
The nasolabial region is one of the areas that are the most likely to sag on the face. For this reason, it is of great importance to intervene in the nasolabial area at an early age. In order to achieve this, lifting interventions that will tighten the skin and giving the necessary volume to the cheekbones are the primary steps before the nasolabial filler procedure.
The most suitable and healthy filler for nasolabial filler application is the fillers containing hyaluronic acid. Since hyaluronic acid is one of the basic substances in the body, it does not cause a problem and offers a more natural and healthy result. Fillers containing hyaluronic acid do not cause allergic reactions and easily adapt to the body and do not damage tissues. For this reason, prefer to use a filler type containing hyaluronic acid while having nasolabial fillers.
Who Can Have Nasolabial Fillers?
The nasolabial filler can be applied to people who have deep wrinkles, lines, and collapses in the nasolabial area that extends from the nose wings to the mouth. The collapse of the cheeks reveals more wrinkles and deepening lines in the nasolabial area. The nasolabial filler is especially recommended for people with these two complaints. Nasolabial filler can be applied to anyone regardless of young and old, as long as they have no risky disease.
How is Nasolabial Filler Treatment Done?
Depending on the problem or problems of the patient who wants to have nasolabial filler, the application method and the dose to be applied are decided. Before the treatment, the area is sterilized and anesthetic cream or optional local anesthesia can be used, even rarely. Thus, the patient does not feel any pain during the procedure.
The nasolabial filler is injected into the lines with a fine needle or cannula. Unlike other filler treatments, it is not preferred to give maximum fillers at once in the nasolabial filler. Less voluminous treatment is made to obtain the most natural and healthy result. It is observed whether there is any change in the patient’s smile and gestures. Patients should not worry if the collapse in the nasolabial region cannot be corrected completely and they should be informed that better results will be taken in the next session. Making the procedure in two sessions is to achieve a more proportional, healthy and aesthetic appearance.

People who are uncomfortable with their appearance can use cream to heal redness and bruises faster.
How Long Is Nasolabial Filler Permanent?

What Should Be Considered After Nasolabial Filler?

What Should Be Done If Asymmetry Occurs After Nasolabial Filler?
If the patient thinks that there is asymmetry after nasolabial filler, she should wait until the control appointment and should not hurry. This is because nasolabial filler can give misleading results for a while. Adding more fillers without waiting for the required time after the application can make the asymmetry look much worse instead of correcting it. Therefore, the best time will be the control examination that your doctor invites you. If you inform your doctor in the control examination that you see an asymmetry and if he finds it necessary, additional filler injection can be made and asymmetrical appearance can be corrected.
