Facial contour

As we age, our faces show the most obvious signs of ageing. The naso-labial fold, the corners of the mouth and the lower jaw line (the jowls) deepen. The result is a sad, heavy and tired appearance of the lower face. With the help of natural hyaluronic acid and the filler, it is possible to reshape the contours of the face in a natural way and without surgery and restore the lost volume. Depending on the quality of skin, your consultant may recommend a series of facial skin peels or other skin rejuvenating treatments such as microneedling alongside your treatment plan.

General information

Due to the natural aging process, the lower contours of the face, the nasolabial fold, the corner of the mouth and the lower jaw line also change. Without surgery, facial volumes can be restored using a filler also called natural hyaluronic acid. The fillers used at the Clinique Bellefontaine are exclusively based on natural hyaluronic acid and are completely resorbable. For your comfort, very fine cannulas with rounded ends can be used instead of needles.

Treatment procedure
At the Bellefontaine Clinic

Before the procedure

Before each hyaluronic acid injection, please let us know if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, have used other fillers, and if you are taking any medications such as anticoagulants. We also ask that you come without make-up.

During the procedure

For your comfort, you receive an anaesthetic cream in the area to be injected. Filler filler is often combined with lidocaine (an anaesthetic) to provide a gentle injection. The filler injection is performed in a room suitable for this treatment, where cleanliness and aseptic conditions are required. The injection points are drawn on the cleaned and disinfected skin. Only approved and recognized products are used at the Bellefontaine Clinic. Injections are performed with very fine, short needles or small cannulas. Small pink and swollen areas appear at the injection sites and disappear after 15 minutes.

After the procedure

The effect is immediately visible as soon as the skin irritations caused by the injections have disappeared. Avoid rubbing or massaging the treated areas after treatment. You can then return to your activities immediately after the injection. For the first 24 hours after treatment, you should refrain from sports, sauna or steam bath. The treatment usually lasts 12 to 24 months, depending on the region and the product used.

Risks and side effects

The treatment is generally well tolerated. Possible side effects are small temporary bruising and temporary redness or swelling at the injection site. Asymmetries are rare.
