How can you prevent nasolabial folds?

Asked by Michelle

How can you prevent nasolabial folds? I am in my early 20’s and can see them forming.

    Nasolabial folds are caused by the gradual loss of fat, collagen and elastic tissue in the skin that occurs with normal ageing and is accelerated by unprotected sun exposure. So believe it or not, the only thing that can help prevent them is the regular and effective use of sunscreen. The good news is that when they bother you enough they can be temporarily helped with filler treatments. Thanks for your question.
