Why Aftercare for Nasolabial Fold Treatment Is So Important

Nasolabial folds, also known as smile lines, are deep wrinkles at the bottom of the nose and mouth. The condition is commonly found in people older than 25, when the skin stops producing collagen. These lines become more visible with age and can contribute towards a less youthful appearance. There are numerous procedures available to reduce the look of nasolabial folds. However, aftercare is essential for prolonging the positive effects of the treatments.

Why Is Aftercare Important?

Treatments available for nasolabial folds are non-invasive, meaning that other than a slight swelling, there should be no side effects. However, while these procedures should have little impact on your everyday life, it is still critical to take particular care of your skin afterwards.


Effective aftercare ensures that your treatment works to its full potential, allowing the results to last for extended periods. The filler treatments we offer at The Aesthetics Doctor usually last for around 6-12 months and up to 5 years for Ellanse treatments.


Aftercare Advice


In the 24 hours following your visit to the clinic, we advise staying away from alcohol, strenuous exercise and wearing makeup on or around the affected area. It is also crucial to avoid any direct sunlight.


We recommend avoiding heat-related environments such as saunas and steam rooms, as excessive heat can degrade the products used during your treatment and reduce the intended effects.
