Vein Finder Assisted Facial Contouring

Facial contouring is a method of enhancing facial features and reducing the appearance of the signs of ageing.

As the person grows, the skin naturally loses elasticity causing it to sag and develop wrinkles. This is most noticeable in the face, which is why more and more people are proactively seeking preventative and reactionary treatments to help improve their appearances.

There are a number of different types of facial contouring techniques and treatments that target specific parts of the face to help patients look their absolute best.

There various procedures of Facial contouring are:

  • Chin surgery: An incision is made either inside the lower lip or externally, in the skin under the chin. 
  • Cheek surgery: An incision is made inside the upper lip. If the patient is having a facelift or forehead lift as well, the doctor usually uses the external incision made for those procedures.
  • Jaw surgery: The incision is made inside the mouth along the lower jawline, and the implant is placed directly on the jawbone, under the tissue.
  • Temple: to restore smooth contours and create balance in the upper face
  • Lips: to create that irresistible ‘pout
  • Removal of fat or recolonization through the injection of fillers

Aesthetic surgeons might utilize a Vein Finder to improve their results. Given that some of the above procedures do not need venous access, a vein finder can assist the surgeon in locating and avoiding veins beneath the skin.

The FDA Portable Vein Detector SIFVEIN-5.2, for example, can be very useful in avoiding bruising, shortening healing time, and boosting patient satisfaction. SIFVEIN-5.2 can also be applied in the lateral canthal area to avoid easily damaged veins.

Since this procedure is actually based on Dermal Fillers injections, a vein finder gives the veins a contrasting colour on the projection on the skin or the screen of the device, assisting the plastic surgeon or the dermatologist in detecting the appropriate areas to operate on, while avoiding venous injections.
