the attractive face, the science of beauty, understood at last

Nasolabial Folds

A lifetime of smiling and laughing will eventually etch a set of "parentheses" lines that run from the outer nostrils to the corners of the mouth. They detract from the smooth skin that we associate with youth, and can make you look like you're frowning even when you're not. Dr. Mabrie offers the latest in fillers and injection techniques to erase these and other lines quickly and painlessly.

Nasolabial Folds
& The Attractive Face

Something to Smile About

Research shows that we find smooth, unwrinkled skin to be more youthful and attractive. So for many women and men, "smile lines" are nothing to smile about. They can make the face look drawn, tugging at the corners of the mouth and creating an unattractive scowl. Even women and men in their 20s and 30s may have deep nasolabial folds, which can make them look much older than they feel. The primary cause for heavy nasolabial folds is sagging of the cheeks due to volume loss. Often it is important to address the primary problem, cheek volume loss. By augmenting the cheek bones and supporting/ lifting the cheek skin, the nasolabial folds are naturally reduced.

Dr. Mabrie can correct nasolabial folds with facial fillers such as Restylane®, Restylane® Lyft, RADIESSE® and JUVÉDERM® in San Francisco. These remarkable products lift and fill lines such as nasolabial folds from underneath, with results that can last from 6 months to over a year. Many patients who seek to correct nasolabial folds are surprised to learn that by using fillers under the eyes or in the cheeks, Dr. Mabrie can create a more significant improvement in the overall attractiveness of the face.
