Lips and mouth enable us to express ourselves verbally but also non-verbally, notably through smiling and many other expressions. As the lips are used daily to speak and eat, their contour is easily marked, giving a severe, sad and bitter look to the face.
Lips are also seen as an element of seduction, especially when they are fleshy. However, the volume of the lips changes with time and skin aging. Moreover, not everyone is equal in this respect, since some people have naturally thin lips that can unbalance the harmony of the facial features.
To remedy this, the Global Medical Institute in Lausanne offers lip reshaping with hyaluronic acid injections to rejuvenate and beautify the mouth and smile.
Who is concerned by lip injections?
Hyaluronic acid injections for lips can be used for many indications:
- Smoker’s wrinkles, fine vertical wrinkles of the white lip also called “bar code” wrinkles.
- The philtrum, which is the small dimple in the center of the white lip.
- The lip contour is blurred, with little or no definition.
- The cupid’s bow, little or not drawn, it is the contour of the upper red lip taking the shape of a bow.
- Lips that are naturally thin or thinned out by skin aging, giving a pinched look to the mouth and leading to a deterioration of the smile.
- Dehydrated, crumpled, dried out lips.
- Loss of fullness of the lips.
- Sagging of the corners of the mouth due to the relaxation of the skin and muscles, giving a bitter and severe look and contributing to the formation of bitterness folds.
- The gingival smile, when the gums of the upper jaw are excessively visible at the time of the smile.
How does the session take place?
After careful analysis of the mouth and face, Drs. Pietramaggiori and Scherer will be able to determine the precise needs of the area and the type of injection to be performed to meet them.
Different types of hyaluronic acid will be used depending on the area and the indications.
For example, a fluid, not very cross-linked, hyaluronic acid is used as a topping or in superficial injections to smooth the fine vertical lines of the white lipwithout modifying volumes.
This type of hyaluronic acid also provides deep hydration to red lips, reducing the crumpled effect and providing a glossy, brilliant effect for plumped-up red lips.
A denser hyaluronic acid helps to redefine the hemline (the contour of the lips).
A cross-linked hyaluronic acid is also used to increase the volume of the lips. This augmentation is done in a moderate manner so as not to obtain an exaggerated and unnatural result. The clinic's doctors use their expertise to determine the ideal volume, in accordance with the proportions between the lower and upper lip, and with the rest of the face for a harmonious result.
The volume increase of the upper lip will also help to limit the gummy smile.
Injections in the labial commissures will raise the edge of the lips and provide support to prevent them from sagging.
At the end of the session, ice packs are applied for a few minutes to limit swelling.
What are the after effects of lip injections?
As after any injection, slight swelling, redness and bruising at the injection sites may be temporarily visible.
An outbreak of herpes labialis may also occur. If there is a history of this, Drs. Pietramaggiori and Scherer will prescribe an antibiotic beforehand to limit the risk.
Other than that, the risk of complications is rare and minimized by the expertise and experience of the doctors.
In order to obtain good results, do not touch the injected area, avoid violent sports and sources of heat (sun, hammam, sauna) for the first few days.
What results can I expect?
The first effects are visible immediately and stabilize after a few days.
Lips are rejuvenated and beautified, your smile is more radiant.
The results last an average of 6 to 12 months.
