Lips fillers and facelift in Edmonton

For these lovely clients, we used one syringe of Juvederm Volift with Sharp-needle techniques. The injection sites were mainly to enhance the lip pillows and define the vermilion borders, the philtrum, and the cupid bow.

We apply a special freezing cream and leave it for about 5 minutes to numb the lips and make the injection less stressful.

 

Needle size

Dr. Kamal (Ph.D. in Pharmacy) used a 30g needle for lip augmentation and lip fillers to minimize the bruising and be more precise with the injection.

 

Filler of choice

For lip fillers, Dr. Alhallak (Ph.D. in Pharmacy) discusses the client’s expectations before choosing the right fillers. The degree of crosslinking is related to the lip filler thickness. For this client, we chose Juvederm Volift. Other brands might be Restylane Kysse and Juvederm Ultra plus.

 

Threading for facelift

The difference between Threading and fillers is the mechanism of action. We cannot use threads for lip fillers but lip augmentation and lip reshaping. We place the thread deep into the dermis layer of the skin and help to lift the skin slowly over time. The threads are made of PDO, a biodegradable and biocompatible material. The BARB type of threads catches on the skin layers and defy gravity. We used 10 cm threads, and the gauge is between 19 to 21 g. Threading for a facelift is an amazing procedure, but it is more intense than fillers. The client will feel tight for about two weeks and feel pain with some facial expressions like a wide grin.

 

Is threadlift a safe procedure?

PDO threads are generally considered safe, but like any other cosmetic procedure, they might have complications such as thread migration, bruising, and pain after the procedure.

 

Do I need any special preparation before the Threading or fillers?

We advise our clients not to take ASA or Ibuprofin for three days before the procedure.

At Albany Cosmetic and Laser Center, we provide all types of injectables such as Botox, lip fillers, Juvederm, Restylane, and Vampire facelift. We also provide premium Laser treatments such as Fraxel, tattoo removal, pigmentation removal, laser hair removal, and all types of body shaping and fat reduction services.
