Natural smiling mouth
The corner of the lips which droops and joins the bitterness lines descending towards the chin gives a pouting expression, even if everything is fine…
Treating this area immediately restores positive emotions, provided that treatment is not exaggerated: corners of the mouth which are too high, in a permanent smile, or bitterness lines which are too filled and weigh down the lower face.
“To avoid these pitfalls, we use hyaluronic acid fillers in a strategic way”, explains Dr Nelly Gauthier. “The idea is not to fill the depressions, but to subtly work on the area to give the face back its beauty. It is possible to combine this treatment with a drop of botulinum toxin at the corner of the lips to reduce the depressor anguli oris (DAO) muscle. Of course, in the case of marked nasolabial folds, the principle is the same: it would be a mistake to completely fill them, as you risk ending up with an unnatural-looking face.”
“In France, it’s more of a matter of character and personality than of beauty, even among celebrities”, recognises Dr Nelly Gauthier. “You want be the best version of yourself. The French favour a made-to-measure approach to erase the signs of ageing whilst making the face as lovely and as beautiful as possible, but without changing it.” On top of this, it brings back freshness, naturalness and positive emotions to our features.
