I am not sure what procedure was performed but there are several procedures which can be used to permanently soften the nasolabial folds.

If you recently had the procedure performed, the scars may still be healing and could fade. Other procedures are available to help hide scars which you could talk with your doctor about including dermabrasion or dermasanding.
