LIP FILLERS BASEL
Full lips are widely desired & recognized as a symbol of beauty & youth.
As we all age, the natural connective tissues in our lips break down, leading to sagging at the corners of the lips and loss of the Cupid’s bow (the V-shape of the upper lip) over time.
To help combat this, Lip augmentation with fillers has become a popular treatment to restore your youthful lip appearance, or to give a small touch up as needed to match your desired look.
Dr. Wagner recommends Hyaluronic Acid as an effective and non permanent filler to meet these needsThis is both well tolerated and is an already naturally occurring compound in the body.
All treatments are administered by our In-house medically trained Specialist under Dr. Wagner’s expert supervision.

5So, what are fillers?
Hyaluronic Acid is also known as hyaluronan. It is a clear, gooey substance that is naturally produced by your body. The largest amounts of it are found in your skin & connective tissue. Free radicals caused by natural aging and UV exposure can break down the skins natural hyaluronan. This results in reduced elasticity, wrinkles and the classic signs of ageing. The fillers we use are hyaluronic-acid based fillers (Teoxane) that help to minimize lines, add volume, plumpness and, even provide lift. While filler injections are safe when given by an experienced therapist, side effects can occur — mainly mild bruising at the injection site.

A Numbing Cream is used at the injection site, so our patients feel extremely comfortable while receiving their injections. We are also very skilled at providing gentle injections.

Drinking any alcohol before getting filler injections can increase your tendency to bruise afterward, so I encourage all patients to wait until after their injections to enjoy a glass of wine.
