Nasolabial Folds

Nasolabial folds or “Smile Lines” are a normal part of ageing and are very common among women and men. Due to lost fats and collagen on the face, folds can form and extend from the edge of the nose to the mouth’s outer corners. These can deepen, becoming more prominent when people smile or laugh.
Dermal filler. injections are the easiest, most effective way to get rid of deep nasolabial wrinkles. This non-invasive Hyaluronic acid-based filler gives your face a more youthful look by lifting and plumping the skin. This helps reduce the look of nasolabial folds or laughter lines, that run down from the side of the nose to the mouth.

What to Expect

About 15-20 minutes before the treatment takes place, a prescription anaesthetic cream is applied to the injection sites. Delivered by our highly qualified medical professional team after an initial consultation to discuss your needs, the filler is then injected at precise locations before the skin is massaged to smooth the material. The whole treatment takes around 30 minutes. Results can be seen immediately, and you will be given a mirror to see the difference as soon as the filler is injected.

Suitable For

Dermal fillers are suitable for most people, apart from those who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Nasolabial Folds

What are Nasolabial Folds?

Nasolabial folds (also known as smile lines or laugh lines) are creases in your skin extending from both sides of your nose to the corners of your mouth. As we age, the creases can become prominent and permanent especially if you smoke, or if you don’t wear SPF to protect your skin from the sun, and with weight loss or weight gain.
With ageing the amount of collagen and elastin in the skin reduces and our skin starts to sag causing wrinkles to form that run from the nose down to the mouth giving the face an ageing effect.
Dermal fillers can reduce their appearance by filling in these lines and plumping up the cheeks. This non-invasive treatment, which uses a natural substance made of Hyaluronic Acid, is quick and safe, and results can be seen immediately. Your face will instantly look fresher and younger.
If you suffer from cold sores, make sure that you have an oral prescription prior to your treatment as it may provoke an outbreak. Common injection related effects may include:
  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Pain
  • Itching
  • Discolouration
  • Tenderness
These symptoms should resolve in 2-7 days.
Do not take aspirin, ibuprofen or Advil for two days after treatment; also, avoid them for one week prior to treatment Do not use ice on swollen areas after treatment Avoid exercise, except for walking, for 24 hours after treatment.

Benefits of Nasolabial Fold Fillers

  1. Immediate Transformation: See a noticeable reduction in the appearance of nasolabial folds right after the procedure.
  2. Non-Invasive Solution: Achieve desired results without the need for surgical interventions, ensuring minimal downtime.
  3. Natural-Looking Outcome: Modern fillers blend seamlessly with the skin, offering a rejuvenated look that feels authentic.
  4. Safe and Proven: Administered by trained professionals, these fillers have a strong track record of safety and efficacy.
  5. Cost-Effective Rejuvenation: Compared to surgical alternatives, fillers provide an affordable pathway to facial revitalisation.

Depending on the areas treated, and the metabolism rate of the patient, nasolabial fold fillers can last from 6-12 months. The Hyaluronic Acid is broken down by the body so repeat treatments will be necessary if you wish to maintain a specific look.

Nasolabial Fold Filler FAQs

Nasolabial folds, also known as smile lines or laugh lines, are the lines that run from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth. These folds are a natural part of the aging process and can become more pronounced over time. Injecting dermal fillers can help plump up the skin and fill in the folds. This is a non-invasive procedure that can provide immediate results.

Nasolabial folds, also known as smile lines, can be influenced by both genetic and environmental factors.

While genetics may play a role in the formation of nasolabial folds, it is not the only factor. Other contributing factors include sun exposure, smoking, repetitive facial expressions, and natural aging processes.

Collagen, a protein that helps to keep skin firm and elastic, naturally decreases with age. As a result, skin can become thinner and less resilient, leading to the formation of wrinkles and folds, including nasolabial folds.

In some cases, individuals may be genetically predisposed to having more prominent nasolabial folds due to the structure of their facial bones and fat pads. However, the extent to which genetics play a role can vary widely from person to person.


The longevity of dermal fillers in the nasolabial folds can vary depending on several factors, including the type of filler used, the amount of filler injected, and an individual’s metabolism.

Generally, hyaluronic acid fillers last between 6-18 months.

It’s important to note that fillers are not permanent, and results will gradually fade over time. Maintenance treatments may be necessary to maintain the results. The exact frequency of maintenance treatments will depend on the individual and their response to the initial treatment.

The cost of dermal fillers for smile lines can vary depending on several factors, including the type of filler used and the amount of filler required.  Check out our price-list to find out more on the cost of our treatments.

Nasolabial folds, also known as smile lines or laugh lines, are natural wrinkles that appear on the face as a result of a combination of factors, including:

  1. Natural aging process: As we age, the skin loses its elasticity and the production of collagen and elastin decreases. This can cause the skin to become thinner and less plump, resulting in wrinkles and folds, including nasolabial folds.

  2. Repetitive facial expressions: Repeatedly smiling, laughing, or frowning can cause the skin to fold and crease over time, leading to the formation of nasolabial folds.

  3. Sun exposure: Ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun can cause damage to the skin, leading to premature aging, wrinkles, and folds.

  4. Genetics: The structure of the face, including the thickness of skin and underlying facial bones, can be determined by genetics, which may influence the development of nasolabial folds.

  5. Lifestyle factors: Smoking, alcohol consumption, and poor diet can also contribute to the development of wrinkles and folds, including nasolabial folds.

The amount of filler used for nasolabial folds depends on several factors, including the severity of the folds, the desired outcome, and the type of filler being used.

As a general guideline, the amount of filler used for nasolabial folds can range from 0.5ml to 1.5ml per side. However, this can vary depending on the individual and the injector’s technique.

Could not recommend Eden Medical, Dr Emma and Valerie enough and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to have treatments done. They are so welcoming and friendly, you are put at ease the minute you arrive at the clinic. I am over the moon with the results from my visit, better than I could have even expected!!! Dr Emma is so knowledgeable and gave me great advice on what treatments would suit me but with no pressure to have to have those treatments done if I did not want to myself. The treatment I had done was virtually pain free. I will 100% be back. 5 star clinic 💫💫💫💫💫

I have been to Dr.Emma in the cork clinic for lip fillers a few times now and I honestly wouldn’t go anywhere else. Anytime I go to my appointment she makes me feel at ease straight away she’s so professional and very gentle. In the past I’ve went to different clinics and the difference in results definitely shows in terms of her professionalism and knowledge, to hygiene and technique.

I went to Eden medical for my first ever treatment of anti wrinkle injections and I could not recommend them enough. They are so friendly and helpful. I was really nervous going in for the first time and they made me feel super comfortable. Dr.Cliona took the time to talk me through everything pre injection and post injection. My treatment was amazing. I was given a follow up check a few weeks later to see how I was getting on too. Their premises is also fab. I can’t wait to go back. 🙂
