What Is A Microcannula?
The microcannula is a new option to administer some dermal fillers into the skin. It’s an alternative to the traditional needle which prevents the breakage of skin, arteries, veins, and anything else.
It works by using a flexible, hollow tube with a blunt tip.
How Does The Microcannula Get Into The Skin?
You may be wondering: if it has a blunt tip, how could it possibly get into the skin?
In order to use the microcannula, a needle is needed to create an entry point. Our professional nurses use a traditional needle to create a small, shallow entry point for the microcannula in order for it to penetrate your skin.
The needle is used only to make the necessary entry points for the dermal fillers.
Benefits Of The Microcannula For Dermal Fillers
So why did we decide to have our staff professionally trained to use the microcannula? Because it has some major benefits.
Fewer Entry Points
Because of the flexible nature of the microcannula, it’s able to treat more areas within a single entry point. That means you’ll get the same coverage with our dermal fillers, but you’ll be poked fewer times. Gotta love that, right?
If you’ve had dermal fillers before, you know that most of the bleeding comes from needle pokes. With the microcannula, you’ll be poked fewer times. This means less bleeding!
Less Swelling And Bruising
Every patient is different, and everyone’s body reacts differently to treatments. However, replacing the sharp end of a needle with a blunt tip will make a difference in a the bruising and swelling after the dermal fillers are administered.
This doesn’t mean that there will be no bruising or swelling. It simply means that, overall, clients see less bruising and swelling when using microcannula for dermal fillers.
If you’re taking any blood thinners, you’re still likely to experience swelling and bruising regardless of the technique that is used.
While traditional needles have been used for years and are great for getting the job done, the sharp tip does allow the possibility of knicking veins and arteries when they’re inside your skin.
Because of the blunt tip and flexible nature of the microcannula, it’s able to move around veins much easier, minimizing the risk of hitting something accidentally.
Can The Microcannula Be Used For All Dermal Fillers And Treatment Areas?
While the microcannula can work for many dermal fillers and treatment areas, it isn’t for all of them. Ask our registered nurses if your treatment and treatment area will work with the microcannula.
