Facelift with PDO threads in Edmonton
The paradigm of fillers and threads
What would you do if you had volume but needed to reshape your face in Edmonton? We need a combination of Threads and Filler because Adding more volume will help, but it will not be the perfect option.
This lovely client came to us so we can help her with a couple of issues
1- Marionette lines
As you can see, her face is not lacking volume, but due to gravity, our faces start to an inverted V shape, which is correlated with getting old.
Injecting fillers in the upper face will not help as we will add volume to the upper face without correcting the lower face, which is the main problem.
HA fillers are a wonderful option if the face shape change and the required facelift is associated with volume loss. With this client, her face is full, and adding more volume is the wrong answer. We need the option to lift the face-up without adding volume.
The PDO threads are bio-compatible bio-degradable material; The BARD type has claws that hold onto the tissue layers to defy gravity. The threads are loaded on a blunt cannula and inserted in the skin’s subdermal plane. We gain entry to the skin through a sharp needle, then insert the tip of the cannula into the skin and place the thread. The thread entry point for a facelift in Edmonton is the zygoma area. We start by freezing the area with lidocaine injection then we use a 21g needle to make a tiny hole for the thread entry. The total number of threads varies from client to client, but it is an average of 6-8 threads in total (3-4 on each side)
The mouth is more smiley, the shadow at the marionette lines and nasolabial folds disappear, the face is lifted in a V shape, and the shadow under the eye is significantly less.
