When it comes to getting rid of wrinkles, most of us think of crows feet, lines under the eyes, frown lines or forehead wrinkles.  But laugh lines around the sides of the nose and mouth can also make the face look older and sadder. They also indicate the early onset of jowls.

The experience of this Los Angeles patient shows what a difference the treatment of these lines can make in regaining a more youthful appearance.

Radiesse -An Ideal Treatment Option For Filling Nasolabial Folds

Dr. Umar decided to use Radiesse as a laugh line filler.  The injection is made of calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres that were produced in a lab, as opposed to being animal derived.  This compound is naturally present in our bodies.  The calcium hydroxyapatite forms a supportive scaffold that not only adds volume and support to the surrounding tissue area. Over time it helps new collagen fibers to develop as part of this structure.

This type of support provided by Radiesse was an ideal choice for lifting the nasolabial folds and correcting the patient’s laugh lines.  As you can see from the before and after pictures, these lines were prominent when she smiled and when her face was at rest.  And the injection of Radiesse made a positive difference in the patient’s appearance by  restoring the fullness in her lower face.
