Nasolabial folds, also known as “smile lines” or “laugh lines,” are the lines that run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth. They are a natural part of the aging process and become more prominent as we get older due to the loss of skin elasticity, reduced collagen production, and the effects of facial muscle movements over time.
