Certainly the lips are a very important part of the face for beauty and youth especially for women. Areas of concern for the lips can be the volume, the shape or both.
We at Aestheticon can offer every available and proven technique to enhance the appearance of the mouth and lips or correct possible defects or shortcomings.
For restoring or increasing the volume of the lips we routinely use specific fillers made for this purpose. The advantage is they are readily available and safe to use. The disadvantage is the effect lasts for 4 to 6 month and then the procedure has to be repeated.
A longer lasting filling can be achieved with bodies own fat as a lipofilling procedure. A certain amount of the injected fat will settle in the tissue and stay alive, providing a more permanent effect.
In some cases, the shape of the lips needs to be improved or the red part of the lip needs to be enlarged. In these cases, a surgical enlargement of the red lip portion can be performed at our clinic. The scars heal usually very well leaving almost no marks behind.
All these above mentioned procedure are performed at our clinic in local anesthesia within 10 to 30 minutes.
This treatment helps those patients who suffer from an excessive show of their gums when smiling or laughing. It can lead to great distress and insecurity and prevent some of those patients from engaging in social activities.
The treatment involves Botulinumtoxin injections into the muscle responsible for elevating the upper lip. It is done in a way, that smiling is still possible but the lip elevation is reduced to an extend that the gums will not show more than normal. The effect stays for up to 6 months and the treatment can be repeated indefinitely.
