Do you plan to erase so-called “barcode” wrinkles?
The treatment of perioral wrinkles by Dr Christophe Desouches, Plastic surgeon in Marseille.
The lips reflect a lot of things and especially our emotions, they are one of the major axes of the face, they allow us to communicate, but also to smile. To keep their identity, harmony must be preserved, they must especially not be too injected so as not to appear vulgar ...
The lips are made up of 3 anatomical units: the white lip (which starts from the base of the nostrils), the red lip (the vermilion) on the mucous side and the contour of the lip (the hem). Over time, changes take place: thinner, less plump, drier lips, with fine vertical lines called "barcode wrinkles".
The daily approach
The lips are surrounded by a sensitive layer of skin, which is similar to that around the eyes.
For this reason, it is common for wrinkles or expression lines to appear in this area of the face.
Why do the so-called “barcode” wrinkles appear?
- A diet with few vitamins and minerals
- Deficient consumption of antioxidant foods
- Excessive exposure to the sun, cold, or wind without protection
- Lack of exercise in the labial muscles
- Problems with the circulation of blood in this area
- Drinking through a straw or smoking (frowning of the lips)
The medical approach
The injection treatment is done with a needle or cannula to fill every visible wrinkle. Not too fluid hyaluronic acid is used to obtain the desired filling.
The injection is done both in the wrinkle and around it by a squared series of micro injections. It should be noted that these injections do not change the shape and volume of the upper lip. The result is perfectly natural and lasts from 6 months to 1 year.
