I recently developed nasolabial folds. Does anyone know how to prevent them from developing further?

I'm also using retin-a. Does anyone know what cream I should use with it? (During the day)

Answered in the Retin-A thread. (This is me keeping things neat. ;))

Nasolabial folds are usually of genetic consequence :( It is also greatly influenced by gravity. What you can do beside using Retin-A and a sunscreen daily, is to have collagen/ hylauronic acid injected into them. They`ll make them less visible, smoother and the face more lifted. They can last up to a 1 year. It should be administered by a practiced dermatologist!

Would it by any chance have anything to do with the structural integrity of facial bones? Supplementing with D3 for bone health could perhaps help prevent such folds?

Not really :( It is mostly genetically determinded. Even if you have good cheek-bones you can still have these folds:( The syringes of hylauronic acid is the best alternative today (see Allergans home page).

I searched and found this:

They say that you can use "pearl cream" and face exercises. Has anyone tried this?

You need a dermal filler like Restylane (hylauronic acid)... not a topical cream.
