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 many 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 preserve its identity, the harmony must be preserved, they must especially not be too injected so as not to appear vulgar?
The lips are composed 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 occur: thinner lips, less fleshy, drier, 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 lines of expression to appear in this area of the face.
Why do so-called “barcode” wrinkles appear?
- A diet low in vitamins and minerals
- Deficient consumption of antioxidant foods
- Excessive exposure to sun, cold, or wind without protection
- Lack of exercise in the labial muscles
- Blood circulation problems in this area
- Drinking through a straw or smoking (frowning)
The medical approach
The treatment by injection is done with a needle or a cannula to fill in each visible wrinkle. We use hyaluronic acid that is not too fluid 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 modify the shape and volume of the upper lip. The result is perfectly natural and lasts approximately 6 months to 1 year.
