What are nasolabial folds?
Nasolabial folds, also referred to as “smile lines,” “parentheses lines,” or “laugh lines,” are the deep wrinkles or lines that extend from both sides of the nose down to the corners of the mouth.
When a person smiles, nasolabial folds become more pronounced. The depth of nasolabial folds varies among individuals; however, as people age, the more pronounced and thicker the nasolabial folds become. In comparison, nasolabial folds are not present in newborns. This is due to the fact that the quantity of hyaluronic acid, a substance that gives skin its firmness and elasticity, decreases as people age. As the skin loses its firmness and elasticity, nasolabial folds become more prominent.
