Amsterdam Skin Clinic is a cosmetic clinic in Amsterdam, where treatments with fillers for the nasolabial folds, among other procedures, are offered. As we age, the elasticity of the skin decreases, leading to deeper wrinkles and lines. The nasolabial fold, which runs from under the nose to the corners of the mouth, is a sign of aging and can give a tired appearance. By using fillers in the nasolabial fold, these wrinkles can be reduced or even completely removed, resulting in a more youthful appearance. This treatment is often combined with Botox to address sagging corners of the mouth.
Our fillers are formulated based on hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that naturally occurs in our body. Hyaluronic acid is known for its excellent safety profile, as it is naturally broken down by the body and does not cause any harm. It is an exceptionally versatile ingredient in cosmetic treatments and has been used successfully for many years.
At Amsterdam Skin Clinic, our doctors undergo thorough training to apply hyaluronic acid products in an optimal and personalized manner. They understand the nuances of each product and know how to apply it to achieve the best results. We prioritize your health and safety, and that’s why we ensure that we only use high-quality fillers approved by the FDA.
An additional benefit of hyaluronic acid is that it has the property of attracting moisture This means that the skin is not only plumped but also better hydrated, which can contribute to a more youthful and fresher appearance. Hydration is essential for healthy skin, and hyaluronic acid contributes to maintaining that vital moisture balance.
Furthermore, each filler we use contains Lidocaine, a local anesthetic. This ensures the most comfortable and painless experience possible during the treatment. We understand that comfort is an important aspect, and we do everything to ensure that you feel relaxed and confident during your time at Amsterdam Skin Clinic.
Your treatment begins with a consultation during which you discuss your desires with the doctor. The doctor will then provide honest advice and explain the expected results. If you decide to proceed with the treatment, the doctor will use a cannula (blunt needle) or a fine needle to place the filler in the nasolabial fold. This can temporarily lead to slight swelling, which is a normal reaction and usually subsides within a few days. After the treatment, the filler will be carefully massaged to achieve even distribution, resulting in a natural-looking appearance.
What to do after the treatment?
To achieve the best results after your treatment, we recommend that you follow the following advice:
- Do not lie flat for the first 2 hours after the treatment.
- Remember not to smoke, exercise, or consume alcohol for 24 hours following the treatment.
- Avoid sun exposure and tanning beds for 2 weeks.
- During these 2 weeks, we recommend avoiding saunas, spas, or hammams.
- Avoid exposing yourself to facials, laser treatments, or peels during this period as well.
