Nasolabial folds permanent fix?

Be Careful with Nasolabial folds
A few words of caution:
1. The nasolabial folds are one of the most over-injected and unnecessary areas for injections. Especially for people in their 20's who usually do not have problems with their nasolabial folds. Your situation might be different if you have maxillary bone problems. People with maxillary bone retrustion might actually look worse by treating the nasolabial folds. Most likely you will need treatment for your midface region on top of your maxilla.
2. Be careful with any permanent implants in your face. Our faces are not permanent structures and are supposed to naturally change over time. Other than perhaps a chin implant or reconstructive implants for correction of facial bone deformity, permanent material in the facial tissue rarely look natural long-term. You should see a board-certified surgeon who can evaluate if you need any permanent correction for your maxillary bone retrusion before any injections.
3. Fat grafting is a very safe procedure; but the long term results are not entirely reliable. In my experience, this is not a good option for nasolabial folds.
4. Ultherapy is usually not an appropriate treatment in a young person since it may damage your underlying normal fat and volume in your face.

Short of surgery, there are no permanent options.
At age 22, I would not recommend surgical options for this.
Find someone who can make them 'softer' with facial fillers or fat grafting or opt for something like Ultherapy in combination with fillers in the nasolabial folds.
