Marionette Lines and Nasolabial Fold Filler treatments are an effective technique to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and creases in the area around the mouth. Most susceptible to a loss of fullness and structure as we age, these lines present due to the endless movement and facial expressions over time. Teamed with the natural ageing process as well as environmental and lifestyle factors, overall volume is gradually lost throughout the mid and upper part of the face.

Nasolabial Folds are defined as the expressional area where lines form when we laugh and smile running from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth. Marionette Lines run beneath – they are the vertical creases that form at the corners of the mouth down towards the chin.

Using a hyaluronic acid dermal filler, we can carefully augment displaced areas of volume to smooth out the skin’s surface and build a more taut and firm appearance. Precision injections via an ultra-fine needle administered by your SAS Aesthetics doctor will create lift and suppleness to the middle of the face for a healthy and youthful look.

Following an in-depth assessment, you will understand your suitability and expected results of the treatment and your SAS Aesthetics doctor will put together a thorough treatment plan in order to address your concerns. In some cases, PDO Thread Lift techniques are a preferred method to reduce the appearance of Nasolabial Folds and Marionette Lines, more of which you can read about here.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid. This is a natural substance which is normally found in the skin and other parts of the body such as the eyes. Hyaluronic acid is a gel substance that absorbs water very strongly and can therefore be injected into the skin to add volume and smooth out deeper lines.

How long does it take to work?

The results appear immediately after Nasolabial Fold Filler however due to the initial swelling the true result will show fully 2 weeks after the initial injection.

Are there different types of Dermal Fillers?

Yes, there are different types of thickness of dermal fillers. Each one is used in a different way and targets a different part of the face. We use a medium thickness filler for lips and under eye to create a smooth result whilst avoiding the formation of lumps and bumps. In parts of the face requiring more structure a thicker dermal filler is used.

How long do fillers last?

The longevity of dermal fillers depends on the area injected and the type of filler used. A rough estimate for lips is 3-6 months although it lasts longer up to 18 months in those who have had multiple treatments. In the face, dermal fillers often last between 9-12 months initially and up to 2 years after multiple treatments.

Is the treatment painful?

All dermal filler treatments are done after the application of local anaesthetic cream which remains in place for 10-20 minutes depending on your pain tolerance. This will result in a relatively painless procedure.

What are common side effects?

Dermal fillers / hyaluronic acid injections are a natural occurring substance and are therefore one of the safest injections with minor side effects such as swelling and bruising. However more serious complications such as blockage of veins/ arteries can arise if the injector is poorly qualified. This is why it’s important to choose your aesthetics doctor with care.

What should I avoid before and after the treatment?

We often discourage consumption of alcohol 12 hours before and after your treatment. Smoking should be avoided 6 hours before and after your treatment. Both these factors affect the likelihood of you bruising. Other things to avoid are hot showers, saunas as well as exercise. for 24 hours and avoid sunbathing or sunbeds for up to 7 days.

Does my skin become saggy after the filler is absorbed?

No, over time as the dermal filler is absorbed by the body, your skin will naturally lay down collagen through the healing process which will make your skin stronger and less prone to sagging and wrinkles.

Are there any contra-indications?

Yes, the absolute contra-indications are pregnancy, breast feeding. Relative contra-indications are the use of blood thinning medications (please discuss this with your doctor during your consultation).

What is the minimum age for dermal fillers?

18 years old.

I came to this clinic and had fox eyes and lip filler done. 3 months later i came back because i loved my results so much the first time i wanted a touch up while keeping things looking as natural as possible.. Dr. Mahsa is an artist. I asked for natural Lips and although we used enough filler, they look so amazing. I couldnt be happier! As for the fox eyes I dont think there is a more experienced doctor performing these treatments. Could'nt recommend enough! Thank you for giving me such a confidence boost SAS. See you again next year ;)
