Nasolabial folds are usual lines that form alongside your inner cheeks. They extend from the base of your nose to the corners of your mouth. Everyone has these wrinkles to some extent; nevertheless, they usually tend to get deeper with age, along with other factors. While there are many types of wrinkle treatment available, nasolabial fold fillers tend to be the first line of treatment recommended by dermatologists. Other treatments may be used rather, depending on the intensity of the folds as well as other concerns, like sagging skin.
What Causes Nasolabial Folds?
Everybody has folds but they can become more prominent as you get old because of natural collagen decrease. Age, smoking, and sun damage are the biggest reasons for deepening and thickening nasolabial folds. The sun’s ultraviolet ‘UV’ rays break down the collagen and protein fibers in your skin that keep and maintain it smooth and supported. Smoking also falls apart these fibers. As you get old, cumulative skin damage can make your nasolabial folds more noticeable.
General aging can also play a role, even without sun damage or smoking. As you get old, the form and shape of your cheekbones flatten out. This can cause the skin of your cheeks to sag or curve downwards. Furthermore, years of gravity pulling your skin and the natural reduction in collagen and elastin, and you have a great recipe for wrinkles, loose skin, and nasolabial folds.
When your collagens decrease, your skin can become less hard and supple, thereby deepening these types of wrinkles. One more reason nasolabial folds become more notable with age is because of the tendency of cheeks to flatten out. As this happens, your skin sags downward, deepening the folds around your cheeks.
There are other elements that you may be able to control. Constant sun exposure has been found the trusted source to boost skin aging ‘photoaging’ by destroying protein and collagen in the skin. At the same time, this can also make skin wrinkles more prominent. Wearing sunscreen daily is a must to avoid cancers and photoaging.
Other factors of risk include:
- Weight variations
- Sleeping on your side
Giving up smoking may be hard, but a doctor can help create a suspension plan that works for you.
