Lines and Folds
Facial Lines and Folds are common concerns treated every day at The Face Clinic. Not to be confused with wrinkles, facial lines and folds are signs of the ageing process affecting structural areas of the face.
Some of the most common concerns include nasolabial folds (the fold between the corner of the nose and the corner of the mouth) and marionette lines (from the corner of the mouth to the jawline). Jowls also fall into the category of facial lines and folds and are an extension of the Marionette lines.
Primarily we use dermal fillers to soften and fill facial lines and folds, however sometimes alternative treatments may be required. Many people who are concerned about their facial lines and folds mistakenly believe that the only option available to them is surgery. However, dermal fillers and other modern treatments have replaced the need for surgery in most cases.
It’s always best to make an appointment to discuss your concerns with Dr Wilkinson to work out what treatments are relevant and what the likely results will be. Dermal fillers last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years depending on the product used.
