What Are Nasolabial Folds?
Nasolabial folds are sometimes called laugh lines or smile lines. They are deep folds of skin that run from the lower side of your nose to each side of your mouth. Nasolabial folds occur naturally on everyone’s face and help distinguish the cheek and upper lip. As you grow older, these folds become deeper and more distinct. This can negatively impact your overall appearance.
What Causes Nasolabial Folds?
A number of different factors cause the nasolabial lines on people’s faces to deepen. The primary causes of distinct nasolabial folds include:
- Sun damage
- Use of other tobacco products
Tobacco in particular causes the skin on your face to age. As you smoke or chew tobacco, you contribute to the premature aging of your face and the appearance of deep lines like the nasolabial folds.
