What are nasolabial folds?
Nasolabial folds, also known as laugh lines or smile lines, are the wrinkles that run from each side of our nose to the corners of our mouth. Although they're a natural part of aging, nasolabial folds can become more pronounced with time.
What causes nasolabial folds?
The main causes of nasolabial folds are:
- Aging: As we age, the collagen and elastin in our skin begins to break down, causing the skin to lose its elasticity. The loss of elasticity causes the skin to sag and fold in on itself, creating wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.
- Smoking: Smoking destroys collagen and elastin in our skin. The loss of collagen will cause nasolabial folds to be more pronounced.
- Sun damage: The UV rays also break down collagen and elastin.
- Weight loss or gain: When we lose a lot of weight, we may have extra and looser skin. If we gain a lot of weight, we might have bigger cheeks. Both situations can accentuate nasolabial folds.
Besides, nasolabial folds are more pronounced in some people than others due to a variety of factors, including genetics, lifestyle choices, and environmental conditions. However, there are some things that can be done to help prevent or reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds.
What are the nasolabial folds treatment options?
Nasolabial folds are wrinkles or creases that run from each side of the nose to the corners of the mouth. They can be caused by a number of factors, including age, sun damage, smoking, and weight loss.
There are a number of treatment options available for nasolabial folds, including:
1.Lifestyle changes: sun protection, sleeping positions and more
One of the best ways to prevent or reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds is to protect your skin from sun damage. Use sunscreen every day, even when it's cloudy outside. If you're going to be spending time in direct sunlight, make sure to wear protective clothing, such as a wide-brimmed hat.
It's also important to quit smoking if you want to reduce your risk of developing nasolabial folds. Smoking accelerates the breakdown of collagenand elastin in the skin, so quitting will help your skin stay healthier for longer.
2.Apply certain skincare products and treatments
For skincare products, retinoids can help stimulate collagen production, while hyaluronic acid can help plump.
