Are you looking for a cosmetic treatment that will dramatically and instantly rejuvenate your facial appearance? From tissue fillers to surgical facelifts, we have all you need at our Edmonton clinic for a more youthful and healthy appearance.

Cosmetic surgery, such as a facelift, is a common and popular way to rejuvenate the appearance and it’s a time-tested way to reduce signs of aging.

These include:

  • Unwanted facial lines and wrinkles
  • Volume loss
  • Age Spots
  • Sagging skin

However, despite the proven benefits of facelift surgery, more and more patients today are turning towards non-surgical treatments such as tissue fillers (eg. Juvederm) or injectables (e.g. Botox).

Take an Innovative Approach to Anti-Aging With Tissue Fillers

As you get older, the skin of your face naturally becomes more lax, wrinkled, and saggy. The primary cause of this is a loss of hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance in our bodies. As you age, the production of hyaluronic acid slows down.

Tissue fillers such as Juvederm, which are comprised of hyaluronic acid, can, therefore, be an effective and very natural way to firm, sculpt, and rejuvenate affected areas, while also working to stimulate collagen production.

Juvederm is often used to treat concerns such as:

  • Volume loss
  • Marionette lines and nasolabial folds
  • Jowls
  • An aging neck or lax jawline
  • Chin wrinkles

Combination Treatment

In some cases, your plastic surgeon may recommend using Juvederm together with a mini-facelift to plump and smooth any problem areas that cannot be adequately resolved with tissue fillers alone.


Facelift: When Non-Surgical Treatments Aren’t Enough

As beneficial and cost-effective as tissue fillers may be, sometimes a facelift is a better option for achieving total facial rejuvenation. This is particularly true for patients with pronounced wrinkles, usually caused by aging.

What is a Facelift?

A facelift is a safe and effective cosmetic procedure that aims to improve the appearance of a loose neck, aging jawline, and deeper facial wrinkles. It’s often recommended for older patients who are looking for dramatic and long-lasting anti-aging results.

Note: While the results of tissue fillers can last anywhere between 6-12 months, the benefits of a facelift can be felt for much longer, and typically the results will last for 5-10 years.


How To Choose Between a Facelift and Dermal Fillers

Deciding between a facelift or dermal fillers is unique to each patient and whichever treatment is right for you will depend on many factors.

Some factors are:

  • Your age
  • Your appearance
  • The severity of problems that need correcting
  • The time you have available to spend recovering
  • Financial considerations
  • Your preference regarding surgery


Book a Consultation

The best way to decide which option is right for you is by booking an in-depth consultation with a plastic surgeon. Such a professional can discuss your aesthetic needs and goals, as well as your medical history, to determine which cosmetic procedure is the safest choice for you.
