Achieving a fresh, relaxed appearance is the primary goal of Smoothline wrinkle treatment. Smoothline develops an individual treatment plan together with each client to ensure that all their needs are met as fully as possible.

How do nasolabial folds develop?

Nasolabial folds, also known as laughter lines, are wrinkles that typically develop in old age between the sides of the nose and the corners of the mouth. The main cause of nasolabial folds is sagging in the central part of the face and the cumulative muscle activity generated by movements due to eating, drinking, and laughing.

How can nasolabial folds be treated?

Nasolabial folds are treated with fillers injected under the skin by a doctor using very fine needles. Treatment usually focuses on the sagging central part of the face, which makes the nasolabial folds disappear.

Initial results can usually be seen after two or three days. The maximum effect develops five to six weeks after the injection.

How soon after treatment can I resume my everyday activities?

The treatment lasts 30 minutes in total (consultation, information, preparation and administration of treatment) and you can then resume your usual activities with no restrictions on your social life. Any needle-entry points that remain visible for a short time can easily be hidden with make-up.

What do I need to be aware of after treatment with fillers?

The treatment is generally well tolerated. The doctor discusses possible side effects individually with the client before every treatment. They are generally mild and do not last long. Possible side effects include small, temporary bruises and brief redness or swelling at the injection site. Blood-thinning medicines such as aspirin should not be taken during the week before treatment as this may increase the risk of bruising. We also advise against treatment during pregnancy.

Tatjana’s treatment outcome

By treating Tatjana’s face as a whole, it was possible to improve her jaw line and the circles under her eyes by contouring her cheekbones and reducing the nasolabial fold. Once these changes, which were due to the natural process of aging, had been rectified, the excess skin and the tear trough under her eyes were better defined and could be treated specifically. The circles under her eyes are now not only greatly reduced – Tatjana’s face looks fresher overall and her skin quality has substantially improved as a result of the treatments with hyaluronic acid products.

Tatjana's Customer Journey

Tatjana looks younger than her years. But she is bothered by the dark rings under her eyes and would like to do something about them. Read Tatjana’s Customer Journey to see how we managed this.

What fillers are

Fillers are materials that are injected into the tissue to compensate for material loss associated with the natural aging process. Fillers are mostly used to "fill in" wrinkles. The fillers that we use at Smoothline are based exclusively on fully degradable, natural hyaluronic acid.
