3 Things you must know about Nasolabial Fold Softening
At what age do nasolabial folds appear?
At 25-35 years old, fine lines around the eyes, crow’s feet, expression lines, and nasolabial folds start to appear. As you age, skin loses its elasticity and soft tissue weighs it down resulting in wrinkles, folds and sagging.
What causes Nasolabial Folds?
Age, sun damage, and smoking are the biggest culprits of deepening nasolabial folds. The sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays break down the collagen and elastin fibres in your skin that keep it smooth and supported. Smoking also breaks down these fibres. As you age, cumulative skin damage can make your nasolabial folds more prominent.
Does losing weight reduce nasolabial folds?
Significant weight gain or loss can also contribute to nasolabial folds. Weight loss can lead to looser skin, especially in the face and neck. Weight gain can make the cheeks plumper and accentuate nasolabial folds.
