Filler for NLF
I think you are an excellent candidate for fillers. For patients of mine with similar patterns of volume loss, I like to use a thicker, more volumizing hyaluronic acid filler such as Voluma in the cheeks. This tends to soften some of the lines lower on your face. You'd also likely benefit from some Juvederm or Restylane injected directly into your nasolabial folds (i.e., "smile lines"), and possibly your marionette lines as well. However, I'd caution against the temptation to have only these lines filled, as you are noticing them mainly as a result of global volume loss, which happens to all of us as we age. To maximize the likelihood of a favorable outcome, I recommend that you only get treated by a well-trained and experienced dermatologist or plastic surgeon. Regardless of what you have done, you will likely need more than 1 syringe.
Hope this opinion is helpful to you. Best of luck, Dr. Frucht.

Juvederm is a great product but to correct these deep folds it will take a minimum of two syringes. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
