Wrinkles can show up in the nasolabial folds sooner than you might expect. Why? Because this area of the face experiences a great amount of motion as you laugh, smile, or make almost any facial expression. Since these actions are repeated multiple times every day, the skin can quickly form wrinkles and begin to appear aged. To restore this area, we provide our patients with options for nasolabial fillers to create a rejuvenated and younger look.
At Simi Doctors, we pride ourselves on providing our patients with a range of non-surgical treatment options to enhance their appearance. We avoid the risks and inconvenience of surgical methods, instead using safer yet effective ways to help you look and feel younger. Call us today to learn more about nasolabial fillers and our suite of non-surgical treatments.
What Are Nasolabial Fillers?
Nasolabial fillers aim to rejuvenate the nasolabial fold area. This area is along the inner cheeks and encompasses the skin along your nose and down to your mouth. Wrinkles are notorious for forming here even from a young age, especially if you have an expressive face. For this reason, these wrinkles are also called laugh lines. As we age, the wrinkles in this area can deepen, becoming visible even when our faces are entirely at rest.
While surgical methods do exist, we prefer to take the non-surgical approach. That is why we use nasolabial fillers to deliver rejuvenating results without the need for a single incision. Using dermal fillers, we can smooth out this area, decreasing wrinkles and fine lines. By restoring this lost volume and increase the volume of the nasolabial folds, your overall appearance should look younger and more lively.
What Is the Treatment Like?
Getting nasolabial fillers is fast, comfortable, and effective. We focus on making the entire process as straightforward as possible from start to finish. Ideally, your entire treatment session should last under half an hour. Most patients then return to their daily lives right away.
When you come in, we mark the areas for injection and apply a topical anesthetic to reduce any discomfort. Since we don’t use general anesthesia, your body has far less strain. We then inject a targeted amount of filler into the specified areas to create your desired result. After that, you can go back home or even back to work for some patients.
Health is a precious gift and prevention is the best medicine

Recovery & Results
Since the entire treatment is non-surgical, you do not have to worry about spending significant amounts of time recovering. However, fillers can result in some swelling, redness, and mild soreness around the injection site. But this quickly fades, often within a single day. Still, if you have any concerns or questions, do not hesitate to call us. We will gladly answer any questions and provide help.
After your treatment session, you should see significant improvements in your wrinkles right away. If you have swelling, you can expect to see your final results in a day or two once it subsides. The duration of your results depends on several factors, including:
- Your age
- Your activity levels
- What type of filler used
- Amount of filler used
Patients with high-activity lifestyles may see shorter results than patients who engage in milder levels of activity. The filler you choose is important too, as some last for several months while others can last for a year or even two years. The choice depends on your goals and what you want to achieve.
