However, simple manipulations do not have the proper effect on the skin, and surgical intervention is not shown to everyone. An effective and affordable method comes to the rescue - contour plastic nasolabial folds. It should be noted that sagging of the skin is not a separate cause, the appearance of wrinkles is the general condition of the skin and the body as a whole. Therefore, in addition to injections of beauty, a doctor can offer a comprehensive face care program and even a diet. Such measures help to save the result of contour plastics much longer, moreover, restore the face oval, elasticity and skin turgor

Before the procedure, the doctor studies the skin features and the degree of expression of physiological, age-related changes. There is a classification of the types of skin aging, its "sagging" in the area of nasolabial folds:

  • Fine wrinkles (fine wrinkled skin).
  • Combined type.
  • "Tired" face (pasty type).

How is the contour plastic of nasolabial folds carried out?

Contour plastic nasolabial area - is the introduction directly under the skin of special preparations - fillers. The result, as they say, is obvious - folds are gradually smoothed out, the contour of the face is tightened, even the shape of the lips changes. The choice of the introduced filler depends on the age of the client, the type of skin and the type of its aging according to the generally accepted classification.

The older the woman, the more saturated hyaluronic acid should be the drug. Young ladies have enough easy correction of creases, which are located from the wings of the nose, for this purpose a "lightweight" filler is selected. The procedure is performed in a minimally invasive way by linear retrograde technique or by the "sandwich" method. Often the drug is not injected into the crease itself, but the cheek is lifted (the cheekbone), so the skin is pulled up, wrinkles and folds are stretched and smoothed.

All drugs that are used in contour plastic nasolabial folds are created on the basis of substances very similar to natural hyaluronic acid, produced by the skin. This makes it possible to almost completely eliminate the risk of complications, because the skin covers perceive the filler as "native." The procedure lasts no more than 30-40 minutes, is practically painless, in addition, unpleasant sensations are removed before injections by applying a local anesthetic (gel).

The effect of the contour plasty procedure of nasolabial folds is visually noticeable in the first few minutes, the duration depends on the type of skin, but most often a guarantee is given for up to 10 months. It should be noted that after injections, small, transient edemas and skin hyperemia may develop, but these temporary complications disappear within 3-5 hours. In a day, a woman can enjoy her rejuvenated face not only in mirroring the mirror, but also in the eyes of admiring friends, acquaintances.
