Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that can give you fuller lips. Natural looking volume lip fixes are mainly done with injectable dermal fillers.

It is important that the materials used in the lips are chosen correctly when there are many different categories of fillers with different purposes. For the lips it is usually better to use a softer filler in some areas of the lips as that forms itself naturally.

As important is the proper injection techniques as the volume, contours and bulge “lip roll” can be adjusted. One usual treatment is to enlarge the lip body, which gives more volume in a natural way to the red part of your lips, another treatment is to fill the top border of the lip if it has dipped as a cause of ageing.

These folds that might become more visible when you smile are not luckily based from only the result of too much smiling. Usually there are two main reasons for these wrinkles. They develop when volume loss and change in the cheeks and the tear trough settles down around the mouth. This can also lead to sad corners of the mouth and so called “hamster bags”

Botox is also used in other medical treatments and here are some of which we also provide:

Excessive sweating
Heavy sweating known as  hyperhidrosis is a very real and embarrassing problem, but there are some effective ways to treat it. A treatment option for heavy sweating is injections of botulinum toxin A (Botox), the same medicine used for wrinkles. Botox is approved for treating excessive sweating of the underarms, but some doctors may also use it on the palms of the hands and soles of the feet.

Teeth grinding
Teeth grinding while sleeping is a problem which may give a series of complaints. Obviously it increases the wear of the teeth (especially the enamel), but also pain at the height of the TMJ and headaches due to excessive tension of the muscles of mastication are common. With the aid of the Botox muscle tension can be reduced, which allows a reduction of the symptoms can be achieved.

Chronic migraine
Many people suffer from tension headaches or migraines. The cause of most types of headaches is unknown, but there are indications that there is, among other things, an increased tension in certain muscles. Botox is a means which in recent years has shown a positive effect in all kinds of conditions where there is an increased muscle tone. The mechanism is still the subject of several studies, but experience shows that about 70% of migraine (and other hoofdpijn-) patients benefit from the use of Botox. In these patients, there is a marked relief of the symptoms. In general, a treatment of the corrugator sufficient to bring about a clear improvement of the symptoms. Sometimes, pain also guided by the rear side of the head to be treated. In practice, there take the patient to keep a diary in order to “score” the effect of Botox on the headache.

When we are tired the muscles around our eyes relax and makes the skin loose. This is why it is almost always easy to tell that people are tired from the appearance of the eyes. Though it is not only the facial muscles that contribute to this symptom. Besides dropping eyelids dark shadows and a tired appearance is often caused by loss of fullness in the skin near the eyes and the cheeks. Many times the blood vessels are also exposed after volume loss which gives a dark contrast under the eyes and increases the appearance. This is a natural effect of the ageing process that can many times be effectively treated.

There are a couple of different techniques to proceed with, depending on where and how the skin has lost volume and how much injectables are needed.

The deep vertical lines above the upper lip are one of the first signs of skin aging and are usually referred to as “Smoker’s lines”. Even tough they may not be because of smoking we recommend to stop smoking, if you are. Due to smoking and sun damage, these lines become more prominent by with time. Treatments in combination with Botox and superficial fillers, can effectively fight stubborn creases around the mouth. Many times some amount of lip fillers also gives more foundation for a better result.
