What can I do with lines around the sides of my nose? Fillers or Botox?

Dr. Dean Kane Q & A shutterstock_85596703 Q. What can I do with lines around the sides of my nose? Fillers or Botox? A. As the skin descends with aging, sun-damage and other factors, a fold develops along the nose. This is called the nasolabial fold. With weakening of the dermal skin, a line is further etched which responds best with fillers and retinoids to fill in. ​ ​Botox is not used here for this problem as it affects the muscles of the upper lip when injected in this area and will descend, lengthen and weaken the upper lip lifting action. ​ ​Find a well experienced, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, ENT Facial Surgeon or Dermatologist injector for evaluation and his / her recommendations. ​ ​All the best!
