Everyones nasolabial folds are different and therefore some may need one syringe, some may need two, some may need three to get the improvement that they desire. An exam is key.

It is almost impossible to determine your specific needs for that area, without seeing you in person and having a thorough assessment. Be sure to meet with a well-trained and experienced provider to better decide what is going to suit you and meet your expectations.

It is impossible to answer this questions without a proper evalulation.  Everyone is different and will need a different amount injected.  I encourage you to go to a skilled provider and see what they recommend. 

Good luck.

Perlane for nasolabial folds

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Perlane is a hyaluronic acid filler that is used to replace volume and correct folds and hollows. How many syringes are needed depends on each individual patient. Often, nasolabial folds result from loss of fat in the cheek area. Usually, filling these areas with filler results in a much more natural and pleasing look than just filling nasolabial folds. An experienced injector recommend a great treatment plan for you.

Number of syringes of Perlane.

Everyone is different and some nasolabial folds are very superficial and others deep.  Some patients  need less than a syringe of Perlane, others need 2, 3 or more to achieve a full correction.  This can be done in 1 session or sometimes is done over several sessions.

Number of syringes depends on the depth of the nasolabial folds.

Your doctor will be able to discuss the number of syringes you require, after grading the depth of your nasolabial folds using a scale like the Wrinkle Severity Rating Scale. The number of syringes depends on the depth of the fold.
