How Much Does Smoothing out Nasolabial Folds Cost?

There are a variety of fillers available to you in Canada It is a buyers market but beware of inexperienced providers. The cheapest is not always the best. One to two syringes of say Juvederm should be sufficient.
Laugh lines can be smoothed with fillers
It sounds like you are a candidate for a filler such as Restylane or Juvederm. The cost will depend on where in the US or Canada you get the injection. The cost of the syringes will vary significantly from region to region. Your best bet is to go to a local plastic surgeon for a consultation.
No Idea of Canadian Prices
Without seeing a photograph, it is impossible to gauge how much filler you would require.
In the United States expect to pay between 300-600 per syringe for Juvederm or Restylane. Presently, Restylane is running a special: so the cost would be $600 for a two cc syringe.
I would think in Canada it would be even less expensive. Many of us physicians are deulged with faxes from Canada enticing us to buy directly from Canadsian pharmacies and save 100's.

Costs average about $500-700 per vial. Surgical alternatives include fat grafting and/or midface lifts. Other options do exist.
