Treatment of nasogenian grooves

Nasogenian grooves are those fine, deep lines on both sides of the mouth that become prominent when we smile. Just as frequent frowning can cause lines near your eyebrows, the smile can make the nasolabial folds deeper. As the skin loses its elasticity and gets thinner, the nasolabial folds become visible.

Nasogenian grooves are a normal part of human anatomy and are not a medical condition or a sign of aging. With aging, some people develop lines along the nasogenian grooves, in other cases lines extending to the chin appear, called “marionette lines”.

Nasogenian grooves become visible due to a variety of factors, including:

  • Exposure to the sun is harmful to the skin, causing wrinkles and changes in the texture of the skin
  • Loss of collagen with age, resulting in loss of elasticity and skin thinning
  • Loss of fat, which can make the cheeks and surrounding areas to appear saggy
  • Smoking
  • Rapid weight loss or frequent weight fluctuations

The most commonly used method of correcting wrinkles around the mouth is hyaluronic acid

Juvederm Ultra 3 preserves the natural appearance of the smile, an effect that lasts between 6 and 12 months. Results may vary from patient to patient, depending on various factors such as smoking, stress, hydration, products used for skin care, etc.

Benefits of filling the nasogenian grooves with hyaluronic acid:

  • Increasing the synthesis of collagen in the skin, which helps to soften the already formed wrinkles
  • Restoring the volume in the perioral area
  • A general „lifting” look of the skin
  • A smoother aspect of the skin
  • Minimal adverse effects
  • Immediate results
  • The option to apply makeup immediately after treatment

The effect of filling the nazolabial folds will be evident immediately after the procedure is completed.

Adverse effects which may occur after the procedure: redness, inflammation, red spots and echimossis in the injected area. Inflammation disappears within 2-3 days, while the equimossis can last up to 8 days.

After filling the nasogenian grooves, a few indications must be followed:

  • Avoid intense exercise on the day of the procedure
  • Avoid using acid-containing care products 24 hours after the procedure
  • No spa, sauna, yoga for 1 week after the treatment
