Don’t be Left Bruised From Your Facial Filler Injection

Published on: May 29, 2015

Facial fillers are a popular solution to the lines and wrinkles that come with age. In a quick, affordable appointment, you can almost erase the lines of time from your face with one of the many effective fillers on the market. However, if you do not have the right cosmetic surgeon doing your injections, you may be leaving bruised after your injection. Make sure you choose a physician that uses the Cannula Technique to ensure bruise-free facial filler injections.

Using the Cannula Technique

The whole point of having a facial filler injection is to make your skin look better. However, if you are leaving bruised and sore, it can seem to defeat the purpose. This can mean social downtime until the bruising fades, especially if you would prefer not to explain why you are bruised around your eyes or mouth. But luckily, there is a better solution.

The Cannula Technique involves using blunt cannula needles that have a rounded tip versus the sharp point of a standard needle. The benefit is that these blunt needles can enter the skin without damaging the tissue or blood vessels. When used by a cosmetic surgeon trained in this intricate technique, it can be an effective way to introduce the facial fillers into sensitive areas such as around the eyes without any bruising.

The Cannula Technique can be used with almost any type of facial filler, including Botox, Juvederm, Radiesse and many others. If you love the effect of the facial filler but want to avoid the bruising, make sure your cosmetic surgeon uses this state-of-the-art technique to fill your lines and wrinkles.
