Expert Nasolabial Filler Advice
Nasolabial folds are naturally occurring lines running from the bottom edge of each nostril to the corner of the mouth below. The folds are made up of bundles of fibrous tissue and muscle, as people age and the skin losses laxity and volume the underlying structure becomes more obvious.
Additional factors such as smoking, UV damage, rapid fluctuations in weight and the effects of laughing/teeth clenching over decades can make the nasolabial line more prominent. Dermal filler placement is a less drastic option than surgery. Dermal filler has minimal side effects and immediate results.
Dermal fillers are aesthetic gel-based treatment injected into the skin. They are specifically designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, contour the face and create volume – most popularly used for lip enhancement.
Benefits of using filler for
Dermatology experts typically recommend fillers for nasolabial folds over more invasive procedures, such as surgery. While individual results may vary, dermal fillers generally provide the following benefits:
• increased collagen in the skin, which helps to plump up the targeted area
• increased volume around the mouth area
• an overall “lift” of the skin
• the appearance of smoother and softer skin
• minimal side effects
• immediate results
What is involved
A skilled practitioner will inject Juvederm filler by Allergan into the creases which will plump and raise the area. The dermal filler itself is intensely hydrating which will further rejuvenate the skin increasing the youthful appearance. Cheek filler is an additional treatment to soften or lift nasolabial folds. By reintroducing support into the upper face it helps lift the lower face thereby reducing the sag which contributes to a more prominent nasolabial line
Alice uses only the most advanced range of Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers that are available in today’s market, which are specifically designed for nasolabial augmentation. These products also contain lidocaine, which means that the treated areas are numbed simultaneously during treatment, improving the overall treatment experience for the patient.

Nasolabial Filler at Harley Street Injectables
Our expert doctors and registered nurses inject the aesthetic gel-based treatment into the nasolabial lines, to give you a natural-looking result.
The aesthetic gel-based filler is based on a naturally occurring bodily substance, a sugar molecule. The function of this molecule is to bind water and act as a lubricant and shock absorbers in the parts of your body that are movable, as well as transporting nutrients and regulating your skin’s water balance. Dermal fillers revitalise and add volume to the treated area instantly by boosting this naturally occurring substance. One of our most popular treatments for nasolabial lines is injectable fillers (also known as dermal fillers). The longevity of your nasolabial filler will depend on the product selected and factors unique to the individual. The
procedure itself takes 30 minutes and can be carried out with numbing cream to reduce any discomfort.It is important to follow your doctor and nurse injectors pre and post preparation advice to get the best results out of your treatment. At your consultation, advise your injector if you are taking blood thinning medications. Immediately post-treatment, apply ice frequently (5-10 minutes every half hour) for up to 6 hours. LED Light Therapy may be used to help reduce any swelling or bruising.
Frequentley asked Questions
Dermal fillers work by imitating a naturally occurring substance within your body – a sugar molecule that exists naturally in almost all living organisms. Its normal function is to bind water so it acts as a lubricant and shock absorber in movable parts of the body, such as joints. It is also important for the transport of nutrients and in regulating water balance in skin. By boosting your skin with this naturally occurring substance, dermal fillers revitalise and add volume to the area instantly. This diminishes the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and giving a natural softer look. The gel we use is very tissue-friendly and closely resembles that which exists in the body.
Results from a single treatment can be seen instantly and can last for up to 6 months, depending on the thickness of the product and a number of biological factors of an individual client. We use dermal filler injections to give a natural looking result that does not affect facial expression. Our face changes as we age, so dermal fillers allow you to control your looks subtly over time.
One of the great advantages of dermal filler treatment is that the effects are long lasting but not permanent. Dermal filler products are biodegradable, which means they will naturally disappear in the body. The longevity of your filler can vary, depending on the brand, thickness and area treated. Duration also depends on many factors, such as the individual’s skin type, skin condition lifestyle and age. To ensure an optimal and long lasting result, a top-up treatment is recommended 6-12 months after your initial treatment. Our experienced doctors and registered nurse injectors will guide you on the appropriate time for your follow-up appointment.
This will really depend on the individual. The injections themselves feel like a slight pinch, and you may experience slight pressure or a ‘stinging’ sensation as the product is being injected. Depending on the area, your cosmetic injector may apply numbing cream to the area to be treated. Some of the fillers already contain local anaesthetic which also makes the treatment more tolerable.
You must be over 18 to receive a dermal filler treatment. Dermal fillers should not be used in or near areas where there is or has been skin disease, inflammation or skin related problems. Dermal fillers have not been tested in pregnant or breast-feeding women, individuals with medical conditions that lower the body’s immune response or individuals undergoing therapy that is immunosuppressive may be more prone to infection by a skin injection procedure. During your pre-treatment consultation, you should thoroughly discuss your medical history with your treating nurse or doctor.
At Harley Street Injectables we use JuvedermNasolabial Filler. We use only the best brands and we always have plenty stock as dermal fillers are very popular with our clients. Dermal filler products vary in thickness, anaesthetic content and longevity depending on the area of the face needing treatment.
The doctor or nurse will remove any makeup and wash the areas that you will have injected. You will then have a local anaesthetic cream applied to the nasolabial area so that you won’t feel any discomfort during the procedure. The doctor or nurse will then do a series of injections into the area using our bespoke technique which will keep the nasolabial area looking very natural. You will then be explained the aftercare.
Your nasolabial filler appointment will take about a 45 minutes from start to finish. As soon as the series of injections is completed, you can go back to your regular activities. Your practitioner will ask you to refrain from wearing makeup, drinking alcohol and exercise for 24 hours.
Your provider will numb the area with anaesthetic gel prior to injecting. The Juvedermnasolabial filler used will also contain lidocaine which will numb your lip simultaneously while being injected.
Side effects are minimal and typically relate to the local injection. Soreness, swelling or mild bruising, may occur on or around the injection site. In rare instances more serious complications may occur such as an occlusion which is why it is important to only see a trained medical professional who can dissolve the filler immediately.
You should start to see a visible improvement immediately. Minor swelling and bruising may take 1-2 weeks to completely resolve.
When administered with quality products such as Juvederm, the effects of your Dermal Filler treatment can last up to 24 months. If you do not continue treatments, your lips will go back to their original form and size.
