Lip fillers and threading for facelift
Lips fillers and facelift in Edmonton
For this lovely clients, we used 1 syringe of Juvederm Volift with Sharp-needle techniques. The injection sites were mainly to enhance the lip pillows and to define the vermilion borders, the philtrum, and the cupid bow.
We apply a special freezing cream and leave it for about 5 min to helo numbing the lips and make the injection less stressful.
Dr. Kamal used a 30g needle for lip augmentation and lip fillers to minimize the bruising and be more precise with the injection.
For lip fillers, Dr. Alhallak discusses the expectations of the client 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 the fillers is the mechanism of action. We cannot use threads for lip fillers but for 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 which a biodegradable and biocompatible material. The BARB type of threads catches on the skin layers and defy the 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 a bit of pain with some facial expression like a wide grin.
Is thread safe?
In general PDO threads are considered safe but like any other cosmetic procedure, it 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 3 days before the procedure time.
