When looking for signs of aging—one of the areas we notice most are the lines that develop between the nose and the corners of the mouth—the nasolabial folds. We know that these lines are often directly related to the loss of volume in the cheeks. When that volume is replaced, a youthful look results and the nasolabial folds are greatly reduced giving a very natural look. Correct placement of volume in the mid face (cheeks) is one of the most important keys to aging successfully.
