Lines, Wrinkles & Folds


Once you start obsessing over them, you start to get well-acquainted with your wrinkles. It’s hard not to, after all, once you notice them, it’s almost all you can see in the mirror every single day. Most conditions seem to get less severe when you give it a name, which is why finding out what specific types of wrinkles you struggle with might just be the key to find the perfect treatment. Let’s do more than put a name to those frustrating lines, wrinkles, and folds—let’s find out which fillers are the perfect treatments for each.

Nasolabial Folds

Also known as “smile lines,” nasolabial folds are those deep creases that appear from the corners of the nose and go down to the corner of the mouth. They’re those deep folds that separate the cheeks from the area above the mouth, and they get deeper and longer as a person ages. They’re defined by the parts of our faces that surround the buccal fat pad, which is the deposit of fat in our faces that are responsible for fullness, so sagging cheeks will sometimes exacerbate the look of nasolabial folds. Dermal fillers like Juvéderm® and Restylane® are commonly used to smooth out nasolabial folds by adding necessary volume to the skin. Another dermal filler used is Radiesse®, which can actually stimulate collagen for a more long-term lift and rejuvenation.

Marionette Lines

Marionette lines are the deep lines that go from the nose to the corner of the mouth all the way down to the chin. They’re called marionette lines because they can often make someone look like a puppet, but they’re a dreaded sign of aging because they can make some look much more overweight and unhappy than they really are. Since marionette lines develop due to a loss of volume, dermal fillers like Radiesse®, which encourage long-term collagen production, are commonly used. Powerful dermal fillers with especially strong structures, like Restylane®, are also commonly used for lifting deep creases marionette lines.

Vertical Lip Lines

Also known as “smoker’s lines,” vertical lip lines are the numerous small lines that form above the lip. They develop because of repeated muscle movement in the mouth, like drinking from a bottle or a straw. Typically, soft and delicate dermal fillers like Belotero and Juvéderm® are used to smooth out the results in a way that looks natural.

Parentheses Lines

These lines are the curved lines that form around the corners around the mouth. Although relatively smaller than marionette lines and nasolabial folds, parentheses lines are still very much one of the most dreaded signs of aging. Softer, subtle dermal fillers like Juvéderm® are commonly used to smooth out parentheses lines with a delicate touch.
