Hyaluronic acid (AH) is a complex sugar naturally present in our body. About 6g-8g per day are naturally produced. Hyaluronic acid is present in your joints, cartilage, dermis and in your eye. In combination with water, hyaluronic acid will act like a sponge and give the hydration, the shine to the skin and the desired volume to the lips. Using biotechnological processes, hyaluronic acid is recreated synthetically identically to that of our body. There are therefore no or very rare allergic reactions reported. After a while, hyaluronic acid is eliminated naturally by our kidneys and does not accumulate in our body.
We first proceed to the anesthesia of the lip with the aid of benzocaine, lidocaine, tetracaine (BLT) which is applied about fifteen minutes before a treatment. The injection of hyaluronic acid (Juvederm®, Restylane®) is done using ultra-thin and almost painless needles. We replenish the lip by moisturizing it, redrawing its contour, Cupid’s bow and bringing it the desired volume. The symmetry of the lip is ensured by a precise gesture.
