If you are considering a cosmetic treatment such as Botox or dermal fillers, it is crucial to choose a highly trained provider with a long history of creating natural looking results. Always on the cutting edge of the latest advances in dermatology, Kessel Dermatology is proud to use the microcannula technique for cosmetic injections. Through this technique, we are able to maximize patient comfort and minimize side effects while delivering incredible transformations.
What Is the Microcannula Technique Used By Dermatologists?
The microcannula technique offers numerous advantages as compared to injection using a traditional hypodermic needle. Here’s what you should know about this advanced injection method for aesthetic procedures:
- What is a microcannula? – Commonly abbreviated to “cannula,” a microcannula is a hollow tube with a blunt, flexible tip. The unique shape of this instrument allows it to precisely insert fluid or fat into the layers of the skin while minimizing damage to the tissue.
- What benefits does a microcannula offer? – As compared to injection with a sharp needle, use of a microcannula to deposit fillers comes with a lowered risk of bruising, skin discoloration (ecchymosis) and blood vessel penetration. In turn, it is considered to be a safer, less painful option for patients receiving cosmetic injections.
- What procedures might the microcannula technique be used for? – The use of a cannula is appropriate for many different cosmetic treatments, including Botox, lip fillers and under-eye fillers. At Kessel Dermatology, we are proud to be one of the first practices in the region utilizing this novel technique. Committed to optimizing patient outcomes and experiences, our injection specialists rely on blunt-tipped microcannulas whenever possible.
