1- don’t forget about the anatomical changes.
A patient with a prominent Nasolabial fold (NLF) will often also experience a reasonable reduction in midface volume and anatomical changes due to aging in this area. Address these issues first to ensure the best overall aesthetic outcome and to maintain a well-proportioned face.
2- Use a cannula
. Using a 25G catheter when treating Nasolabial fold (NLF) can significantly reduce risk profile.
3- The patient should be upright whilst marking
Here, you want to identify the area of increase in volume due to hypertrophy. We only wanted to add an intermediate volume to this area to avoid exacerbating patient complaints.
4- A combination technique brings the best nasolabial fold results
The combination of Fanning + retrograde linear threads medial to Nasolabial fold (NLF) in Layer 2 will produce good results in this area.
5- Inject slowly at low pressure
Do not use force to push through the structure. Inject slowly at low pressure. Move your catheter slowly and continuously while injecting the product.
