There are deep lines coming down from my nose on each side of my face, down towards the corners of my mouth, and they are getting deeper and deeper.
These lines are called the nasolabial folds, and they tend to become more prominent with age. They occur because of loss of the underlying supporting structure of the facial bones and cheekbones and upper jaw, and also because of the loss of fat underneath the skin. This problem is very treatable with the injection of a filler. Radiofrequency treatment also is helpful here over the skin of the cheek and in front of the ear to tighten up the skin, and to draw the skin up from the fold.
