Hyaluronic acid treatment
A full, lined and beautifully shaped lip is a must when it comes to having a feminine face. Slim lips make a face very serious, neutral and grey.
After a certain age, the lips lose their fullness and become thinner, while others’ lips are genetically thin independent of age. The volume of the lips and wrinkle augmentation are achieved by the most modern hyaluronic acid treatment.
The hyaluronic acid is a natural part of our body that enables the flexibility of our skin. However the concentration of the hyaluronic acid decreases with the number of years and therefore age begins to show by wrinkles appearing. This process also becomes visible on our lips, after some years wrinkles begin to appear not only around the mouth but also on the lips which can be perfectly removed by this procedure.
In case of lip augmentation the hyaluronic acid based filler is injected under the skin and is absorbed. Despite the treatment lasting only a few minutes, the results are sensual lips in only a matter of minutes. At our clinic we use Esthélis as the filler material, it is of natural origin, it breaks down and it is a very tissue friendly material. It is not only used for lip augmentation and enhancement but also in the field of wrinkle filling.
The injection treatment can be used in the following facial parts:
- The vertical creases between the eyebrows (glabellar lines)
- The horizontal wrinkles on the forehead
- Smile lines
- Wrinkles around the eyes, so-called ‘crow’s feet’
- Soft vertical age wrinkles around the upper and lower lips
- Scar corrections
- Nose corrections
- Lip enhancement
The above mentioned material is injected under the skin with a very fine needle in the area of the skin to be treated. The filler material is especially elastic therefore there is no risk of clotting. It is suitable for both the needs of male and female patients. In the days following the surgery swelling can be expected and will cease in 12-48 hours. The treated area should not be pressed in the following 2 days and refrain from a lot of speaking and laughing as well. As long as the swelling persist, the treated are should be kept from heat and sun rays (e.g. sun burn, solarium).
Due to the use of the filler material, there is a minimal risk of allergy and side effect. The chances of complication after the operation is also minimal, post-treatment is not necessary.
Side effects are extremely rare but can include:
The following are generally recommended after the operation:
