What Causes Nasolabial Folds?
Alright, the class is in session.
Nasolabial folds are a completely normal part of human anatomy. Unless you’re a newborn or suffering from a condition that causes facial paralysis, you’ll have nasolabial folds.
This is important to clarify because the goal isn’t to remove these lines entirely but to minimize their appearance with plump cheeks, tighter skin, and toned facial muscles.
So, what causes nasolabial folds?
The aging process makes nasolabial folds more noticeable, with a range of environmental factors helping to speed up the process and exacerbate wrinkle growth, including:
- Excess exposure to the sun
- Lack of collagen due to aging
- Sudden weight loss leaving saggy cheeks
Keep in mind, it’s fine if you enjoy your days at the beach, or you’ve been looking to lose a little weight recently. These contributing factors can be mitigated with a natural, 100% safe, and effective method of reducing nasolabial folds.
