The wrinkles which go down the lip ends are called mentolabial or marionette wrinkles, but they are also known as „Merkel“ wrinkles.
With the injection of hyaluronic acid, the mentolabial wrinkles will be stabilized statically.
Injection of hyaluronic acid always stimulates re-emergence of collagen fibers, so that a unique treatment can achieve a much longer success.
Injections can cause extensive hematoma at the puncture. The dimension of the hematoma depends on treatment and the patient’s coagulation parameter. Therefore at least 2 days before such a treatment, blood-thinner (e.g. Aspirin) should not be taken. Furthermore in the first 4 days unevennesse’s and swellings can occur, which will disappear with massaging and spreading.
