Natural fullness and youthful contours are coveted features for attractive lips. But not everyone is naturally blessed with full lips, and as you age, your lips can lose volume and definition.
LipLase® from Fotona is one possible solution. The innovative method for lip rejuvenation and contouring does not require fillers or surgical procedures. Special laser pulses stimulate the body’s own collagen production in the lips to achieve natural volume and a smoother lip surface. This non-invasive treatment is suitable for patients who want fuller lips but are looking for a natural alternative to fillers.
A detailed consultation before the treatment is essential. It will allow you to clarify all your questions and provide you with information about the procedure, as well as the expected result and costs. During this consultation, you can also discuss potential risks and the individualised procedure so that the treatment can be perfectly tailored to your needs. We recommend that you do not sunbathe for around ten days before the procedure to avoid pigmentation disorders. Moreover, blood thinners and alcohol should be avoided for at least 24 hours before the treatment to minimise the risk of bleeding and bruising.
The first step of LipLase involves thorough cleansing of the lip area. Although most patients describe the procedure as hardly painful, an anaesthetic cream is available upon request. Next, the Fotona laser is gently guided over the lips. The light pulses penetrate deep into the tissue and stimulate the collagen fibres with the aim of boosting collagen production. The session lasts around 15 to 20 minutes and is performed on an outpatient basis. This means that you can leave the clinic right after the treatment and go home.
To achieve perfect results and promote healing after LipLase treatment, it is important to keep the lips moisturised and avoid direct sunlight. Applying high-quality lip balm can help the lips stay supple and boost collagen formation. Separate aftercare is usually not necessary, as the LipLase treatment is very gentle and generally does not require extensive aftercare. Irritating lip products should also be avoided in the first few days after the treatment to ensure the rapid healing and best results. With good aftercare, you can help your lips heal faster and the results of the treatment last longer.
The risks associated with LipLase treatment are minimal. In rare cases, there may be slight redness or swelling, but this is temporary and will subside after a short time. These side effects can usually be prevented with occasional cooling. For patients with frequently recurring cold sores, we recommend taking herpes pills as a preventative measure.
Give your body some time to form new collagen. Generally, the final result of LipLase (visibly fuller upper and lower lips) is visible after a few days to weeks. However, sometimes initial results can already be seen immediately after the treatment.
The cost of Fotona LipLase depends on the complexity of the treatment, the number of sessions required and the individual wishes of each patient. We will gladly make you an offer in a personal consultation.
The treatment uses pulses of laser light to stimulate collagen production in the lips and thus achieve natural volume and improved lip contour.
A lip augmentation session usually takes about 15 to 20 minutes.
Most patients find the treatment quite painless, which is why no anaesthetic is required. However, we will gladly apply a light anaesthetic cream upon request.
Initial results can often be visible immediately after treatment. The final result appears after a few days to weeks, as the body first has to produce new collagen.
LipLase is a non-invasive method that does not require incisions, fillers or injections and delivers natural, long-lasting results.
