Nasolabial Folds uses Versa injected into the smile lines that begin on either side of the nasal base, and run along either side of the mouth. Minor swelling may occur, and should subside with 6 weeks of treatment. Naso labial folds utilizes filler to fill in the volume lost over time.
Nasolabial Fold. There's two different ways to correct this. I like to correct it in two segments. One, doing a cheek augmentation to lift this area up, and the other doing filler between the outer corner of the nose down to the lip, trying to fill in that line that is created over time by volume loss in the midface.
