Lip fillers Juvederm art in Edmonton
The lips are like blank canvas and lip fillers are the art. We use Juvederm as the color and the needle as the brush.
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 distributed the one syringe between the lower and upper lips since she has a 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 less 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 Cupid bow. Dr. Alhallak usually makes sure to keep the golden ratio of 1:1.6 between the upper and lower lips. They 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 cross-linking of HA. The new more advanced family is called Vycross and it has Volbela, Volift, and Volume.
Volebla is the softest fillers and we use it for clients who never had fillers before and for tear trough areas. Volift is a bit thicker and we use it for fine lines and wrinkles and in most of our lip augmentation.
