With age, but also as a consequence of severe nicotine addiction, the elasticity of the skin in the upper lip area will decrease. The results are small lines in the upper and lower lip, which many patients find very distressing.
Already after one procedure, Dr. Colette Carmen Camenisch will skillfully conjure up a beautiful smile on your face. Symmetry and elegance are the goals of her treatment. Our experienced specialist will gladly offer you her advice on how your lips may be treated to fit your features and the lip lines reduced.
By injecting a special lip filler (a particular kind of hyaluronic acid) the shape of the lips will be optimized and the contours defined, at the same time the lip lines will be reduced. The hyaluronic acid is injected in the lips lines, with an extremely fine needle, and this way the lip lines are smoothed out.
Upon request, we may also compensate the lost lip volume at the same time. The dry and chapped lips may be hydrated with the Skinbooster therapy (a particularly fluid hyaluronic acid) and the lip vermillion rejuvenated.
Through the contouring of the lips with hyaluronic acid (filler treatment) and the careful filling of the upper lip lines, the perioral area will be shaped harmoniously and the lip will look natural and beautiful.
Depending on the condition of the lip vermilion, a Skinbooster injection can rejuvenate the sensitive skin of the lips. With this procedure, the filler is injected in the upper and lower lips using a very fine needle.
This treatment may be combined very effectively with a hydration therapy of the face with Skinbooster. The results will be even more convincing.
To achieve the optimal result, Dr. Colette C. Camenisch will have to reevaluate the perioral wrinkles 2 weeks after the treatment, to correct eventual imperfections.
The effect will last for 6 to 12 months, depending on the age and lifestyle habits of the patient; in fact, through dry air, working outdoors under intensive UV exposure, and severe nicotine addiction the hyaluronic acid will decay more quickly and the lip lines will be visible again.
The procedure lasts approximately 20 minutes
Dr. Colette Carmen Camenisch controls the treated area 10 to 14 days after the procedure.
We recommend that for 24 hours after the injection to the upper lip lines you avoid practicing sports, going to the sauna or solarium, because these activities may impact negatively the insurgence of swellings.
A treatment of the lip lines with hyaluronic acid may cause small hematomas, local swellings (for 1 to 3 days), and, very rarely, feelings of tightness and pressure.
The costs will be agreed upon in advance and depend on the extent of the procedure and the necessary materials.
