Lip augmentation art in Edmonton
Both of the previous clients had one syringe of Juvederm to perform lip augmentation.
The injection site was different between the two clients.
Dr. Alhallak (Ph.D. in Pharmacy) distributed the one syringe between the lower and upper lips since she has symmetry to start with.
For the second client, she has a very nice and full lower lip but a thin upper lip, so we used the full syringe in the upper lip to compensate for the asymmetry that we started with.
We applied freezing cream to make the injection almost painless, and we used a small 30 g needle to have as little bruising and swelling as possible.
It is important to be prepared for bruising and swelling due to the high vascularity of the lips area.
The main injection areas of the upper lips were the lip pillows, the vermillion border, the philtrum, and the Cupid bow. Dr. Alhallak (Ph.D. in Pharmacy) usually keeps the golden ratio of 1:1.6 between the upper and lower lips. The different viscosity according to the brand and the sub-brand. For example, Juvederm fillers are classified into two families according to the crosslinking technology, and each family has different types of HA according to the degree of crosslinking of HA. The new, more advanced family is called Vycross, and it has Volbela, Volift, and Volume.
Voleblla is the softest filler, and we use it for clients who never had fillers before and for tear trough areas. Volift is thicker, and we use it for fine lines and wrinkles and in most of our lip augmentation.
Voluma is the thickest filler, and we mainly use it for enhancing the Malar prominence and face-lift.
Dr. Alhallak (Ph.D. in Pharmacy) at Albany Cosmetic and Laser Centre has one of the highest satisfaction rates for lip fillers, and Botox and the clinic are voted one of the 10 top clinics in Canada.
