Nasolabial Fold Dermal Fillers in Melbourne

Nasolabial folds are the lines from the nose to the corner of the mouth. As we age, we lose volume in the cheeks and this allows the cheeks to sag and emphasise the appearance of the nasolabial folds. To find out more about treatment for nasolabial folds in Melbourne, read the information below.

How Are Nasolabial Folds Treated?

There are two main ways in which nasolabial folds can be treated. If nasolabial folds have formed due to sagging of the cheeks then adding volume to the cheek area with dermal filler can lift the cheeks and soften the nasolabial folds. This is normally a better option in patients aged 40 and over. Have a look yourself in the mirror – do your nasolabial folds reduce in appearance by lifting the cheeks? If so, then cheek filler may be a good option.

The second way we treat nasolabial folds in Melbourne is to place small amounts of dermal filler directly into the fold. This is often a better option in patients under 40 where loss of cheek volume is less of a problem. This technique has been used in the patient below who is in his mid-30s.

How much dermal filler do I need to treat nasolabial folds?

When we treat nasolabial folds in Melbourne, we generally use 1.0ml of dermal filler. If we are treating nasolabial folds by replacing cheek volume, then we may use 1.0ml – 2.0ml + to treat cheek volume to provide the lift needed to reduce the lines.

How Much Does It Cost To Treat Nasolabial Folds in Melbourne?

Nasolabial fold treatment with dermal filler starts at $700. Have a read of our cost page to find out more about all treatment prices.

Dr Brown discussing the cost of nasolabial fold filler treatment

We’ve had an inquiry on the website from Leanne saying, “I’m in my sixty’s and would like to start slowly. How much will it cost to improve my marionette lines and nasolabial fold.”

First of all, let’s go over anatomy. The marionette lines are the lines from the corners of the mouth downwards, and we see those developing pretty much from our forties onwards. And the nasolabial fold is the fold from the nose corner down to the mouth there. So, if somebody’s in their sixty’s then there’s been some volume loss over time, and we use dermal filler to replace this volume loss.

As a general rule, when we’re treating marionette lines, most people in their sixties to treat that area will probably need around about two mils of dermal filler. It can vary from person to person. Some might need one just to touch up the area. Some people might need, you know, two or three even. So, you’re probably looking around about the two mil amount to really treat the area well and the supporting areas nearby. When we’re treating nasolabial folds, again it depends how deep the folds are. If they’re really quite, you know, superficial lines there, then you can get away with a tiny amount in there. But often, the nasolabial fold develops as we age because the volume is lost in the cheeks and the cheek starts to come downwards, and it rears up into a fold.

Often, we treat nasolabial folds by treating the cheek volume and try and get things to lift up. So, in younger patients that just got a tiny thin nasolabial fold or shallow nasolabial fold, you can just put filler directly into there. Very small amounts. But as we age, we tend to need support nearby to actually lift up the area there. So, if you’re treating cheeks to cause that effect and to lift it up, you may need, you know two, three mils potentially in total in these areas in total to lift the area up. So, the way we described it is if you’re looking at, you know a full facial rejuvenation we look at decade dosing. So, three mils at 30, four at 40, five at 50, six at 60. So, that’s kind of a rough estimate to treat a whole face and rejuvenate. So, if you go on to the website and go to cost you can look at our break down of cost for each mil of filler. It does vary depending on location also the product that we use. So, a rough ball park figure, you’re probably looking at using a couple of mils, if you’re in your sixties to treat marionette and the area nearby. And maybe two to three mils to treat the nasolabial fold by treating the cheeks above. So, I hope that answers your question and if you have any more questions, please get in contact.

As a general rule, there is minimal bruising risk when treating nasolabial folds. You could have the treatment and easily go to work the next day. Higher bruising risk areas are lipstear trough and marionette lines.

We can use numbing gel prior to treatment, but as a general rule, nasolabial fold dermal filler is one of the least painful areas to have treated. We use very small needles to inject the area.
