Lanluma

Lanluma® treatment

Lanluma® is both a dermal filler and a collagen inducer. It is used on the face and body to fill lost volume and restore collagen production.

The principle

Lanluma XLanluma® is a dermal filler based on PLLA (poly-L-lactic acid), a biocompatible substance that stimulates the production of collagen naturally present in the skin. Lanluma® injections are used to restore volume to the face and body, correct signs of skin aging and improve skin quality. Lanluma® is biocompatible and 100% biodegradable.

PLLA microparticles are encapsulated in the tissue just a few days after injection, gradually promoting the production of new collagen. This tissue reaction gradually takes hold, helping to reduce loss of volume and correct wrinkles, fine lines, hollows and folds.

This aesthetic treatment achieves natural results, similar to those of cosmetic surgery, with reduced risks and recovery time.

Indications

By stimulating natural collagen production, Lanluma® creates volume and can be used to reshape your face and body. The volumizing effect smoothes out skin irregularities and improves contours for a better-shaped face and figure.

The main indications are as follows:

  • Correct wrinkles and facial folds
  • Restore volume to cheeks, temples and cheekbones
  • Reduce dark circles under the eyes
  • Contour the chin and jawline
  • Improve skin quality on hands and décolleté
  • Contour and reshape the buttocks
  • Treat cellulite and orange-peel skin on thighs, buttocks and stomach.
  • Catch the arms

How a Lanluma® injection session works

A preliminary consultation with an aesthetic doctor will allow us to check your medical history and discuss your expectations. At Claris Clinic, Lanluma® injections are always performed by qualified aesthetic physicians, dermatologists or plastic surgeons.

An injection session generally lasts between 30 and 60 minutes. The doctor begins by cleaning the area to be treated and applying an anaesthetic cream. Lanluma® also contains a local anesthetic for greater comfort during injection and reduced risk of hematoma.

Lanluma® is then injected using a fine cannula (a hollow tube with a blunt tip). The number of injections depends on the area to be treated and the desired result. An ice pack may be applied to the treated area to prevent bruising and reduce swelling.

After the session, you can resume your normal activities immediately.

What results can we expect?

An immediate effect is observed for a limited period. Results are then progressive. After 6 weeks, a visible improvement can be seen: skin depressions are corrected and wrinkles smoothed out. Skin structure is also restored.

Results are achieved gradually over a period of 2 to 3 months, and last for two years. Neocollagenesis (production of new collagen) continues approximately 9 to 10 months after treatment. At the same time, the PLLA will be progressively degraded and completely reabsorbed.

We recommend 2 to 4 sessions spaced two months apart, depending on your expectations.

Precautions to take before and after injections

Three days before the session, it’s important not to take aspirin or anti-inflammatory drugs, as they can increase the risk of bleeding and bruising. Alcohol consumption can also increase the risk of hematoma.

After the session, we recommend avoiding the sun, sauna, steam bath and sports for 24 to 48 hours, as they can increase the risk of inflammation and swelling. Avoid alcohol and anti-inflammatory drugs in the hours following injections.

Massage the treated area for 5 minutes, 5 times a day, for 2 weeks, to distribute the product evenly. Do not perform any aesthetic treatment on the injected area.
