Nasolabial fold excisions are performed when injectable fillers, laser resurfacing, or other procedures may not give the desired result. By removing a small portion of skin at the site of the fold, a skilled dermatologist can tighten the area, significantly reducing the appearance of “Parentheses lines”.
The procedure is done under local anesthesia, so there is very little discomfort. minimal scarring can occur, however it is usually imperceptible because it is hidden within the nasolabial folds. Any scaring that remains after healing can be treated with peels, dermabrasion or laser resurfacing.
For facelift-like results without having major surgery performed, consider Nasolabial fold excisions.
