How To Diminish Nasolabial Folds

Different from crow’s feet or forehead wrinkles which you pay more attention to, the nasolabial folds tend to be ignored until they really start to “show up.” Yes, they “show up” rather suddenly and you might wonder why saying “how did I get them so long and deep!?” Well, that was my case anyway.

Nasolabial folds start from the side of your nostrils and as we age they get longer and eventually can reach to the bottom of your face. The most common treatment is fillers. Fillers are an alternative to cosmetic surgery or the insertion of implants under the skin. The cost is significantly less but results are temporary.

Here is one pose you can do everyday. I say “everyday” since it does not take long. You can do it when you wash your face or when you apply moisturizer or make up. Most of us wash our face, right? So no more excuses not to do this pose. This pose not only reduces the nasolabial folds but also tones the lower part of the face, which also shows the age. I want to hear from you. Please add your questions and comments below so everyone can benefit.

  1. thank you Fumiko – it was my concern about my nasal labial folds that I discovered your website and I am grateful for all your advice and knowledge – thank you! from avs

  2. My folds seem worst after I do the puffer fish like exercise and the one sticking out your tongue on each side of your check. Is this normal? Will it get better with time?

    1. I decided to stop following the puffer fish exercise cause I feel like it just does not work. What I do instead is I put fingers on the side of my nose and gently move them outwards (of course I have lotion on so my fingers glide across my face… Don’t do massage unless your face is moisturized. It’ll actually make your skin worse). I don’t know if you have heard of a small book called: The Japanese Skincare Revolution, but it’s great. I had terrible acne a couple years ago, but I managed to control it with the tips this book has. It also has techniques for reversing sagging, wrinkles, lines – just stuff on how to look the best you can at every age. That’s also where I got the massage I just told you about. You can get it for not too much money on like eBay. I really recommend it.

    In noticing other comments I can’t help but wonder how doing the movements correctly might make the lines appear worse?!!?
    For me I can feel the muscles in my face the same as any other muscle being used in a workout.
    I am looking forward to seeing results to ANY degree over the next 2-6 weeks!
    Thank you so much for sharing as much as you do!!!!
