Aging is inevitable and happens to everyone. But, some manage to age more gracefully than others. Before you assume that it’s all genetic, we’re here to tell you that “looking good” for your age often involves a secret weapon: a good aesthetic practitioner.
If you asked around, you’d be surprised at just how many people are using Botox and dermal filler treatments to look younger and feel better about the way they look. A good cosmetic practitioner has a “playbook” of minimally invasive techniques that yield big results with little to no downtime. Dermal filler injections are one of them.
An example of an area that responds phenomenally to filler injection is the nasal alar area. This is the area of the inner cheek, just beside the outer edge of your nostril. It is the very top end of your nasolabial fold or “laugh line”. As we age, this fold or crease becomes more noticeable due to structural changes and volume changes in the cheek itself. Combined with years and years of smiling and laughing (which is good!), this crease indents even further—which is bad! It can lead to a “heavy” look or like your cheek is folding in on itself.
Just a drop or two of a dermal filler product in the area next to the nose can make a big difference. Even if you aren’t bothered by too much “heaviness” in the nasolabial fold, treating this area with dermal filler can help improve your overall look by changing the topography. Without filler, it’s convex (like a bowl) which means that you’ll see a shadow in that area. Once filled, it becomes smooth which takes away the shadow effect and creates the visual effect of smoothness and fullness.
At Celibre, we like to use either Restylane or Juvederm for this area. It’s a small injection that can yield big-time results. And it’s just one of many little “tricks of the trade” that Celibre’s skilled injectors use to help you look your very best.
