Lip Botox

Lip botox is a frequently preferred cosmetic procedure, especially in the treatment of perioral fine line problems such as lip lines and wrinkles. This procedure, performed using botulinum toxin type A (BTX-A), provides a temporary paralysis of muscle movements, reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. In addition, it can be used as an effective treatment method in cases such as oral health problems, teeth clenching, teeth grinding and temporomandibular joint disorders.

The lip botox procedure usually takes 10-15 minutes and is a procedure performed with local anesthetic cream. The pain of the procedure is minimal and the results are quite effective. Lip botox is used to reduce the effects of aging to provide a full and youthful lip appearance. However, it may not be suitable for pregnant or lactating women.

What is Lip Botox?

Lip botox is an aesthetic procedure performed with botulinum toxin type A (BTX-A) injected under the skin for the treatment of lines and wrinkles around the lips. BTX-A is also used to treat excessive teeth grinding, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder and spasms around the mouth.

Lip botox procedure, which usually takes 10-15 minutes, is performed with minimal pain. By temporarily paralyzing the muscles, BTX-A reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the lips and prevents the formation of new lines. A cream with an anesthetic effect is applied to the injection area, making the procedure more comfortable for people with pain sensitivity.

Before the lip botox procedure, which is an effective, safe and less invasive aesthetic procedure, factors such as the patient's medical history, allergic reactions and current drug use are taken into consideration. The person performing the lip botox application must be a specialist and licensed health professional.

How is Lip Botox Applied?

During the lip botox procedure, botulinum toxin is injected under the skin considering the structure and function of the orbicularis oris (muscle around the mouth). Injection is done with fine needles, which are usually applied using local anesthetics such as procaine.

In the lip botox aesthetic procedure, botulinum toxin prevents the nerves from sending signals to the muscles, causing temporary paralysis of the muscles. Therefore, botulinum toxin is injected into the muscles around the lips, helping to reduce fine lines (rhytides) and wrinkles. While the lip botox procedure usually takes 10-15 minutes, the pain is usually minimal.

Side effects of botulinum toxin should also be considered during the lip botox procedure. These effects may include pain (perception), swelling (edema), redness (erythema), headache (headache), and sometimes a temporary lower lip appearance (pseudo-ptosis) in the procedure area.

Lip botox can also be used for lip plumping and shaping purposes by being applied for aesthetic purposes.
