Nasolabial folds are the indentation lines on either side of the mouth that extend from the edge of the nose to the mouth’s outer corners. They separate the cheeks from the upper lip. They are commonly known as “smile lines” or “laugh lines.
More About Folds
These folds also tend to deepen with age. Some people develop wrinkles next to the nasolabial folds, which may be more visible during smiling.
These folds, which are made of dense bundles of fibrous tissue and muscles, tend to become more prominent with age. As the skin becomes saggy and thinner, many people find that their nasolabial folds become more noticeable.
Causes of Nasolabial Folds
Nasolabial folds become more noticeable due to a variety of factors, including:
• Sun exposure, which damages the skin, causing wrinkles and changes in texture
• Loss of collagen with age, making the skin look weak and thin
• Loss of fat, which can make the cheeks and nearby regions appear saggy

Wonderful first time experience with Botox, and the best results I could have hoped for!! I’m absolutely thrilled with my results and I wish I hadn’t waited so long.
I use to commute downtown Vancouver for all of my skincare and beauty needs until I discovered Skin Secrets. I’ve become a regular client and have since referred my friends/family too. It’s the best kept secret in Fort Langley!
