It has also been preferred because it can correct wrinkles on the lip. The lines on and around the lip that have emerged over time are more common especially in people with white skin. Lip botox is performed with the aim of correcting the wrinkles on the lips that appear with the movements of the mimic muscles. This procedure is applied to the lips due to two complaints. One of them is that when the upper lip is pulled up while smiling, the gums are seen more than they should be.
Lip botox can be applied in some cases to have an aesthetic smile. The appearance of the gums more than 1-2 mm affects the appearance of our smile badly. For this reason, an aesthetic appearance is obtained with the application made by the specialist. It does not increase the volume of the lips, it only corrects the aging lines. If the patient wants fullness in the lips, then lip augmentation is applied.
Botox injection is made 3-5 mm from the lateral border of the nose wings. Before the injection, the skin should be cleaned to ensure that there is no make-up residue. After the numbing cream is applied to the areas to be injected, the injection process is performed for 5 minutes. Ice can be kept before and after the procedure. You can return to work and daily life immediately after the procedure.
The results of this procedure, which does not cause swelling and bruising when applied correctly, begin within 2-3 days. Within 2 weeks, you can observe that your smile is more aesthetic. To ensure the permanence of this method, it should be repeated every 4-6 months.
It is applied to people who are uncomfortable with their gums rising too high while smiling and to people who have vertical lines in the upper lip cavity caused by smoking or facial expressions. It is possible to remove these lines with lip botox injection. This application can be applied to patients who are afraid of surgical procedures, who do not have a neurological disease, who are not pregnant or breastfeeding.
