Smile enhancement


Eye rejuvenation

The look is a very vast field in itself where aesthetic medicine comes upstream or as an essential complement to surgery.

The look ages through several phenomena:

- The forehead which relaxes, leading to the fall of the eyebrows which in turn weigh down the upper eyelids
- The upper eyelids which lose their fatty pad causing a hard digging
- The lower eyelids which relax, revealing fatty pockets under the eyes
- The melting of the fatty cushion covering the bone of the orbit under the eye and the descent of the cheekbone which create hollow circles
- The skin which loses its suppleness and its elasticity forming wrinkles around the eyes.

Before the 2000s, the rejuvenation of the gaze was based exclusively on blepharoplasty (cosmetic surgery of the eyelids) and the 'lift' of the forehead or the temples. These interventions gave excellent results, provided they were well dosed.

Today, eye management begins well before the surgery stage with less aggressive procedures, which affect the eyebrows, eyelashes, eyelids, and wrinkles around the eyes. The treatments must be precise, safe, give effective and natural results, and have no impact on vision.

Eyebrows: Eyebrows should never be neglected as they structure your look. The treatments offered at the Main d'Or clinic are: eyebrow enhancement with neuromodulators (Botox) and redefining them with permanent makeup (Micropigmentation).

Eyelashes: To intensify the look we offer the eyelash densification treatment.

Crow's feet: These are the oblique wrinkles at the corners of the eyes, due to the contraction of the orbicularis muscle of the eyelids. The treatment of crow's feet wrinkles and wrinkles under the eyes is based on neuromodulators (Botox).

Dark circles: are the worst enemy of a luminous and youthful look. They give the face a tired appearance:
For hollow circles: 
isolated or associated with the sagging of the cheekbones, the treatment is done by filling with hyaluronic acid.
For dark circles:
 we offer the chemical peeling with a specific product to lighten this area delicate.

Eyelids: Over time, the skin of the eyelids loosens and an excess appears. Fat pockets can be associated with it, especially at the inner corner of the eye and under the eyes. The treatment in this case is based on blepharoplasty (cosmetic eyelid surgery). It is a procedure that can only be administered by a plastic surgeon or an ophthalmologist specialized in eyelid aesthetics.

Smile enhancement

Fleshy, well-defined lips are reflections of youth and femininity, and also represent a definite asset of seduction. Aging and the formation of wrinkles on the lips are influenced by at least four negative factors: cumulative sun exposure, genetics, tobacco and natural aging. These factors combined result in: flattening of the lips especially the upper one with loss of the cupid's bow, formation of vertical lines and wrinkles around the mouth allowing lipstick to spill out and falling oral commissures (corners of the mouth). Thanks to modern medical science, aged lips can be rejuvenated and thin lips can be restored to fullness.

Lips lacking definition:

At the Main d'Or clinic, the contour of the lips, the Cupid's bow and the philtral columns are improved with hyaluronic acid specially designed for the lips, which will be injected superficially under the skin to precisely redraw the contours of the lips.

Lips lacking volume:

To plump up the lips, hyaluronic acid injections are the treatment of choice. They allow a natural, fast and effective increase in the volume of your lips temporarily for 6 to 12 months.

Semi-permanent lip makeup:

This technique makes it possible to slightly increase the volume of the lips, to redraw their contour, to correct an easiness if necessary but also to enhance the color of the mouth. The final result gives a makeup effect while you are not wearing any makeup.

The labial commissures and bitterness folds:

The downward-pointing corners of the mouth give a sad look to the face. To remedy this, we use hyaluronic acid at our clinic to fill in a natural and temporary way (for 9 to 12 months) the folds of bitterness and to enhance the corners of the mouth. In certain cases and according to the professional's assessment, injections of neuromodulators (Botox) can be performed in the muscles lowering the corners of the mouth (muscles depressor anguli oris) in order to raise sagging labial commissures. The duration of action of these injections is 4 to 6 months.

Vertical wrinkles around the lips:

Hyaluronic acid specially designed for very superficial injections under the skin of the white upper lip in order to restore a smoother appearance. Other treatments that treat wrinkled skin are used at our clinic to stimulate the production of collagen and the production of new skin in the upper lip.

The Gingival smile or the Gummy smile:

Two techniques are used at our clinic to treat this problem according to the professional's assessment: Neuromodulators (Botox) injected into the levator lip muscle and/or hyaluronic acid to increase the height of the upper lip and hide the gum when smiling.

Harmonization of the facial contour “Facial contouring”:

Hormones, heaviness, poor diet, weight gain, tobacco, sun and genetics are the cause of sagging skin. From the age of 25, the aging process of the skin begins with the decrease in the production of collagen and elastin, the face loses its elasticity and its firmness. Thus, from the age of 30, it is possible to notice the appearance of the first wrinkles.

However, it is only from the forties that we notice a relaxation of the oval of the face. The contours are then less clear, the jowls appear separating the chin by a sort of depression. These sagging contours end up giving rise to certain complexes. When the sagging skin is too great, recourse to cosmetic surgery is considered. However, in most cases, at the Main d'Or clinic our aesthetic medicine professionals can give you more than satisfactory results by working the middle third of the face and the contour of the jaw called "Jawcontouring".

This technique of aesthetic medicine concerns both men and women, as long as their facial oval is little or not drawn. However, the difference in the shape of the face must be taken into consideration:
- In young women, the face usually has the shape of an inverted triangle. The chin then corresponds to the point of the triangle and the top of the cheeks to the vertices. Over time, the contours of the face become blurred and the triangle eventually inverts, the chin becomes the base of the triangle.
- In men, the face has a square shape, the cheekbones less prominent and the chin wide without being thick.

Different interventions will be made depending on the case:

Plump cheekbones and cheeks:

In case of loss of volume, injections of hyaluronic acid will be made to tension the middle third of the face. This remodeling immediately gives a significant rejuvenation effect and a rested and more fit face. The most important thing in this technique is, as always, to avoid excesses and keep a natural look. using the tensor threads.

Restructure the mandibular line with Hyaluronic Acid

The professional can inject depending on the case, from the mandibular angle, the horizontal branch of the mandible to the chin. For the man, the objective will be to give a more virile character by widening the jaw, with a square chin and a mandibular angle better drawn at a right angle. For women, the objective will be to give a more elegant oval but without masculinizing it, better defined, we can for this make more angular an erased mandible, project a receding chin. In all cases a better defined jaw allows to delimit the neck and harmonize the oval of the face. For people approaching their fifties, the remodeling of the contour of the jaw can be a temporary alternative to the cervico-facial lift. Indeed, it allows to tighten the jowls in the lower third of the face, without resorting to cosmetic surgery.

Refine the masseter muscle

Depending on the need, a dose of neuromodulators (Botox) will be injected into this muscle which is located in the lower oval of the face in order to reduce their thickness and give a more oval shape and a softer and more feminine appearance, which is called “facial slimming”.

Facial transformation

At the Main d'or clinic, professionals are aware that the two main objectives of aesthetic medicine procedures are: beautification and rejuvenation. However, a third objective can be added to the others, on a case-by-case basis according to the client's needs and requests: this is facial transformation. To achieve a facial transformation, the three services of the Makeover category will be used:
