Lip injections with hyaluronic acid

Lip Goals Unlocked - For a natural touch of glamor without exaggeration

It is essential to understand that each lip has an individual configuration. Each curve, the amount of visible lip red and any asymmetries contribute to personal uniqueness. With this treatment, it is important to have realistic expectations as lips can be enlarged, widened or given a slightly rounder or more pointed shape. This can give each lip a unique touch, making it appear more sensual and attractive. We ask for your understanding that we only carry out treatments that we consider to be medically appropriate and justifiable. Our aim is to have only happy and satisfied patients who are happy to come back to us again and again. We want to protect you from possible disappointment. In an individual consultation, our patients' wishes are weighed up seriously and professionally against the realistic options that treatment can offer.

FAQs

Hyaluron (filler) - What is it?

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that occurs in our body and plays an important role in regulating the skin's moisture and elasticity. It is a component of connective tissue and ensures that the skin looks plump and firm.

In the field of aesthetic medicine, hyaluronic acid is often used for wrinkle treatment and lip augmentation. Due to its unique properties, it can bind moisture and increase the volume of the treated areas. It fills in wrinkles and lines and gives the skin a smoother and more youthful appearance.

The effect of hyaluronic acid treatment is immediately visible and usually lasts for several months. As hyaluronic acid is a natural component of the body, it is broken down by the body over time and therefore needs to be replenished regularly to maintain the desired results.

Treatment with hyaluronic acid is generally well tolerated as it is a substance that is already present in our body. Nevertheless, possible risks and side effects should be discussed with an experienced doctor before treatment.

 

Treatment procedure

Hyaluronic acid lip injections use special products that have a gentle and well-tolerated effect and allow lips to feel natural when kissing, eating and speaking. However, it is important to have realistic expectations of this treatment.

The lip injection procedure begins with a detailed consultation in which the effects and possible side effects are discussed. Realistic goals are set together with the patient.

After the area to be treated has been cleaned and disinfected, injection points are defined according to individual wishes and facial anatomy. The hyaluronic acid is carefully and specifically injected into the lips at these points. The treatment usually only takes a few minutes.

After the treatment, the treated area can be cooled with a soothing aloe vera cloth to reduce possible swelling and redness. It is important to follow the recommended aftercare instructions to achieve optimal results.

It should be noted that the effect of hyaluronic acid is not permanent and gradually wears off over time. Depending on the individual's metabolism and lifestyle, it may be necessary to repeat the treatment after a few months.

Lip injections with hyaluronic acid are a proven method of adding volume and definition to the lips. Careful selection of the products and individual adaptation to the facial anatomy can achieve natural and aesthetically pleasing results.

 

Can only the upper or lower lip be injected?

Yes, it is possible to inject either just the upper lip or just the lower lip with hyaluronic acid. The decision depends on the individual wishes and needs of the patient. Some people prefer to emphasize the upper lip to achieve more volume and definition, while others prefer to focus on the lower lip to create a harmonious overall look. We offer a detailed consultation and work with you to determine the best approach to achieve the desired results.

 

Durability

The shelf life of hyaluronic acid varies depending on the product used and the treatment region. For example, it depends on whether the product is applied to an area with good circulation. The shelf life varies from 6-18 months. We will be happy to clarify any questions regarding shelf life in a personal consultation. In the area of the lips where there is a lot of movement, the shelf life after the first treatment is 3-6 months and increases with the number of treatments (up to 1-2 years). This is due to the fact that individual "cavities" in the lip mucosa must first be filled like a foundation.

 

When will the result be visible?

Results can be seen immediately after the procedure and improve over the following 12 weeks.

Is lip injections painful?

Lip injections with hyaluronic acid can be associated with some discomfort, but most people find the treatment well tolerated. A topical anaesthetic cream or local anaesthetic injection can be used before the injection to minimize possible pain. We only use hyaluronic acid products that already contain an anesthetic to increase comfort during treatment.

There may be a slight feeling of pressure or stinging during the injection, but most patients report that this is well tolerated. Some also experience a slight burning or tingling sensation, but this quickly subsides.

After the treatment, the lips may be slightly swollen and sensitive for a few hours or days. This is usually temporary and will subside on its own. It is recommended to apply cooling compresses or ice packs to the treated areas to reduce swelling and possible discomfort.

 

Rules of conduct after treatment with fillers

Rules of conduct after treatment with hyaluronic acid

  • Do not smoke for at least 4 hours after treatment
  • Make-up only from the following day
  • No intensive competitive sport, sun, sauna or solarium for at least 24 hours

Particular attention should be paid to lip injections:

  • Avoid wearing lipstick or other cosmetic products on the treated lips on the day of treatment.
  • Avoid hot drinks or food for at least 4 hours after treatment.
  • If you experience pain or unusual symptoms, please contact us at any time.
Possible risks

Highly effective innovative hyaluronic acids currently represent by far the safest and most effective treatment option in the filler area of aesthetics. Although hyaluronic acid is in principle a substance produced naturally in the body, side effects can nevertheless rarely occur:

  • Redness, swelling, bruising
  • Irritation in the treated area
  • Inflammation / Infection
  • Nodule
  • In extremely rare cases, hyaluronic acid can also clog vessels and lead to tissue loss. In this case, the hyaluronic acid must be dissolved again with an antidote known as hylase.

Treatments with hyaluronic acid as a so-called filler therefore belong in the hands of certified experts in this field.

Make an appointment and let us advise you. We look forward to your visit.

Which combination treatments are possible?

There are various possible combinations of lip treatments to achieve the desired result. Here are some options:

  • Improve lip volume and contour: Hyaluronic acid can be used to inject both the upper and lower lip to give them more volume. Botox can be used at the same time to relax the muscles around the mouth and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. (e.g. Nasolabial fold with hyaluronic acid, Remove marionette lines)
  • Lip augmentation: If the main goal is to enlarge the lips, hyaluronic acid can be used to specifically inject the upper or lower lip. Botox is not normally used in this case.
  • Improve lip contour: Hyaluronic acid can be used to define the lip contour and improve lip shape. Botox can be used to relax the muscles around the mouth and optimize the result.
  • "V-Shaping": V-Shaping is an aesthetic concept that aims to contour and shape the face to achieve a V-shaped facial structure. There are various treatments that can be combined for V-shaping. Here are some options:
    1. Filler: Hyaluronic acid fillers can be used to increase volume in certain areas of the face and achieve the desired contour. This can be achieved, for example, by injecting the cheekbones or chin. (e.g. Facelift with hyaluron)
    2. Botox: Botox can be used to relax the muscles and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It can also be used to improve the contour of the face by relaxing the muscles around the jawline, creating a slimmer facial shape.
    3. Thread lift: In a thread lift, special threads are inserted into the skin to tighten and lift the skin. This can help to achieve the desired V-shape of the face.
    4. Microneedling with chemical peel: Microneedling in combination with a chemical peel can be used to stimulate collagen production and improve skin tightening. This can help to improve the contour of the face and achieve a V-shaped facial structure.

To discuss individual needs and wishes and to find the best combination of treatments for the desired results, please make an appointment with Dr. Conrad. Because every case is unique and requires a customized treatment.

Thank you for a unique, absolutely natural result.

Dr. Conrad was recommended to me by my best friend because I have been suffering from acne scars on my cheeks for a long time. He took his time and screened my skin. Together we decided to use professional microneedling together with a skin booster to correct the scars and the result is simply brilliant! Thank you so much again!
