LIP AUGMENTATION

The body reabsorbs hyaluronic acid within 6-9 months, depending on the age of the patient, their metabolism, the amount of exercise they do, the blood flow and whether they smoke.

For example, younger patients have a faster metabolism, therefore hyaluronic acid lip fillers can be resorbed more quicky. Also, the desired result will not be achieved through a single treatment session, hyaluronic acid must be stabilized, and the procedure must be done slowly, at different time intervals: 3-6 weeks.

The procedure causes minimal discomfort, but no pain. The anesthetic cream I use has a high concentration of anesthetic, and hyaluronic acid also contains lidocaine.

Pain threshold varies from person to person, and women, before and during their period, being more sensitive, may feel more discomfort.

The products I use are tested, approved, sterile, and have no history of reactions. Hyaluronic acid is a polysaccharide also called hyaluronan or hyaluronate, which is naturally present in the human body, in our skin, joints, eyes, connective tissue, muscles, cartilage. Virtually every cell contains hyaluronic acid naturally, which is produced by the human body. Therefore, side effects and allergies are very, very rare.

I do not use or recommend permanent products.

You may experience bruising after the procedure, as lips are very vascular.

Most patients report that bruises disappear after 48 hours, but it all depends on the body.

If the procedure has been done correctly and the hyaluronic acid was injected into the vermilion, when it is resorbed, the lips will return to their original shape.

If the augmentation was done correctly and the tissue is soft, yes, you can have a top-up.

Hyaluronic acid can be dissolved using an enzyme that we all have in our bodies. After dissolution, you can have your lips filled again, but not earlier than 1/2 month.

For a natural look, the injection technique comes before the amount injected.

Many patients come to me and ask for only 0.5 ml, for a natural look.

For the first injection, usually 0.5 ml will not be noticed, the amount is too small to add volume and will reabsorb too quickly, making you come back very soon. I never use more than 1 ml per session, in order not to "expand" the tissue. 1 ml is not a large amount. At the same time, the injections are done gradually, over several sessions, in order to achieve the perfect look.

NASAL RESHAPING

Hyaluronic acid is injected into the nose area to lift and straighten it – thus creating the optical illusion that it is smaller, never larger.

Nasal reshaping takes 15-30 minutes, it has immediate effect, and it lasts for 8-12 months, but it depends on each body.

The procedure is completely different from rhinoplasty. Immediately after the treatment your nose may look red, but you can put on make-up one hour after the procedure.

Bruising is rare, but if it does occur, it will resolve in 2-7 days (depending on each body). You may experience some discomfort of the nose within one week after the procedure, it may hurt a little when you touch it.

Yes, you can undergo a non-surgical rhinoplasty, but the procedure will not solve the medical problem, only the aesthetic one.

All patients say that the procedure causes little discomfort, but no pain. It is a strange sensation. The hyaluronic acid I use incorporates lidocaine.

BOTOX

Cosmetic Botox – botulinum toxin type A – is a protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It is purified and moderated so that it can be used safely in beauty procedures.

Botulinum toxin type A has been used for therapeutic purposes for over 20 years, for the treatment of strabismus, torticollis, facial spasm and blepharospasm.

Subsequently, botulinum toxin came to be used in the cosmetic treatment of expression wrinkles, under the name of Botox.

When injected into a specific area, Botox blocks the transmission of nerve impulses from the nerves to the facial muscles responsible for expression wrinkles. Thus, the affected muscle no longer contracts and relaxes, causing the skin to stretch.

The substance can be used:

  • for forehead wrinkles;
  • for frown lines between the eyebrows;
  • for crow's feet;
  • to correct excessive elevation of the upper lip (gummy smile);
  • for bunny lines (the lines that form on the sides and along the bridge of the nose);
  • for the chin, to prevent dimpling;
  • to block the masseter muscles and slim the face;
  • to block excessive sweating of the palms, soles, armpits.

It takes 3-14 days for Botox to settle in, the effects are not immediate. I prefer Baby Botox, which allows facial movement, but does not allow wrinkles to form. It lasts 3-6 months.
An important factor in the duration of treatment effect is the number of times you have had it before.

If you have had deep wrinkles before Botox treatment, it is normal for them not to disappear, the skin has lost its elasticity. Botox will only inhibit muscle movement, but it can take months for the skin to relax and wrinkles to be "stretched".
