Nasolabial folds are the lines on either side of the mouth that extend from the edge of the nose to the mouth’s outer corners. They become more prominent when people smile.
These folds also tend to deepen with age. Some people develop wrinkles next to the nasolabial folds, which may be more visible during smiling. These sometimes are called smile lines or laugh lines. Excessive sun exposure, loss of collagen and fat through the ageing process , exposure to environmental pollutants and rapid weight loss can make the nasolabial folds more noticeable.
Very often the folds are quite deep due to loss of volume in the cheek area. A doctor can apply dermal fillers just under the skin in the nasolabial fold area or the upper cheek area to give the cheeks a lift, making the nasolabial folds less noticeable.
