why would burning fat give you nasolabial folds? should be the opposite right

also I've been using retin A on my cheeks and it hasnt changed my fat pads at all (unfortunately)

For the same reason people inject fillers to get rid of nasolabial folds, same reason bloated people don't have nasolabial folds very often. The fat fills the laughline

Proof retin is bad for nasolabial folds? I see all kinds of website recommending retin to cure/prevent nasolabial folds as it helps with collagen.

See: https://www.revivalabs.com/can-you-...ptive Retin-A or over,fix, night-out solution.
Topical solutions (for nasolabial folds)
Retinoids, peptides, and silicones have all proven effective to varying degrees. Prescriptive Retin-A or over-the-counter retinoids can help to prevent the loss of collagen over time.
Ofcourse fillers are recommend for deep folds, but retin is supposed to reduce fine lines.

Any proof that retin fat loss is in any way significant and causes nas folds?

Burning fat in nasolabial folds make the folds less prominent if anything lol

>nasolabial folds are solved by fat graft, fillers and bloating.
Maybe taking out fat will cause it? But I'm gonna do an experiment, I'm gonna use retin a on only one side of my laugh lines. 3 months later we will see, this is going to be interesting

Looking back at some research on tretin:

After 84 days of treatment with tretinoin 0.025%, a statistically significant improvement was observed for nasolabial fold (2.4 ± 0.9 vs . 2.8 ± 0.7), supralabial wrinkles (1.1 ± 0.8 vs . 1.5 ± 0.9), pores (2.0 ± 1.6 vs . 3.2 ± 1.7), and pigmentation (1.6 ± 1.0 vs . 2.3 ± 1.2) (all P ≤ 0.05).
Idk im gonna keep using it in any case for now.

that's counter intuitive tbqh, and right now it's giving me nasolabial folds. I'm gonna use in just one side and see what happens

Retin=More collagen=less folds. It's not counter-intuitive.

Idk about the fat loss part though, but I find it hard to find any studies on it

its counter intuitive to me because people inject fat to get rid of it, I don't know any studies but it's well known that it get rids of hooded eyes which are caused by fat deposits

Retin A burns fat is a cope. The extent to which it does is do minimal, it’s hardly noticable. That said, I don’t run the risk and avoid putting it near my eyes

you know it ‘leaks’ a few inches so that even if you are putting away from your eyes it will still reach it

i would just put it under eyes and take the temporary thinning side effect, over time the skin with thicken and the area will improve in looks. retin a doesn’t burn fat like retards on this forum claim
