Botulinum Lip Treatment

Botulinum therapy for lips Botulinum toxin type "A" in Ukraine has long been used not only in medicine, but also in cosmetology. This substance has shown itself to be the best in the treatment of hyperhidrosis, and botulinum therapy of certain areas of the face has become an effective method for correcting age-related skin changes.

The essence of botulinum therapy lies in the active substance. The purified botulinum toxin has a local nerve effect, relaxing the muscles in the injection zone for a while. This allows you to relieve excess muscle tension, eliminate their asymmetry and correct the shape of the selected area.

Lip botulinum therapy allows you to get rid of drooping corners of the mouth, “gummy smile”, and also helps in lip augmentation. Also, botulinum toxin preparations do a good job of correcting the shape, making the lower or upper lip fuller. Positive feedback on the result of this procedure speaks of its effectiveness.

Indications and contraindications for botulinum lip therapy

This procedure has cosmetic and palliative significance. Botulinum toxin injections will help if you want to:

  • get rid of the “gummy smile” - exposure of the gums during a smile;
  • pump one or both lips;
  • reduce the distance from the lips to the nose;
  • get rid of wrinkles in the mouth area associated with increased mobility of facial expressions.

Also, an injection of Dysport or another botulinum toxin preparation helps to correct the shape of the lips and will be a good addition to the injected filler based on hyaluronic acid.

This is a painless and quick procedure with an almost instant effect, but there are a number of contraindications to it:

  • history of allergic reactions to botulinum toxin;
  • the presence of inflammatory reactions on the face;
  • diseases associated with weakness or atrophy of muscle tissue;
  • neurological diseases affecting muscle function;
  • pregnancy and breastfeeding period;
  • diseases that affect blood clotting and medication intake, which also affect this property;

Before deciding to make an appointment and find out how much it costs to administer Dysport and other preparations containing botulinum toxin, make sure that you do not have the above conditions. If there is at least one contraindication, it is impossible to safely pump the lips with a botulinum toxin preparation.

How is the procedure for lip correction with botulinum toxin?

After the appointment and detailed consultation with a cosmetologist, as well as your consent to the provision of such a service, preparation for the procedure begins.

The preparatory stage includes:

  • removal of residues of cosmetics from the intervention area;
  • treatment of the selected area with an antiseptic;
  • marking of the intervention area and marking of injection sites;
  • anesthesia.

Botulinum therapy for lips After the anesthetic begins to act, the botulinum toxin preparation is gradually and evenly injected along the marked points. This happens subcutaneously or intramuscularly, depending on the desired effect and the technique chosen by the doctor. After each injection, the area is treated with an antiseptic.

At the end of the intervention, the recovery period begins, which takes seven to ten days. At this stage, it is important not to neglect special precautions, because the cost of not observing them is a bad result and even the appearance of complications.

During the rehabilitation period, it is prohibited:

  • have any mechanical effect on the lips, including sleeping face down;
  • expose lips to high humidity, high temperature and ultraviolet radiation;
  • take alcohol and spicy foods, as well as antibiotics.

Without taking these precautions, instead of lip augmentation or correction, you can get an unsatisfactory result and cause unpleasant side reactions. Among them - nausea, inflammation, dizziness.

When will the result of botulinum therapy be visible?

In some cases, the first effect can be noticed within half an hour after the procedure, but most often it appears after a few days. The final result is visible in the second week after the injection, and it can last up to one year.

To achieve a more lasting result, it is recommended to take a course of several correction services throughout the year.
