As one of the top facial filler expert in New York, Dr. Jacono offers an innovative filler technique called the Microcannula technique that will result in virtually no bruising and less pain for his injectable filler patients.
To achieve these remarkable results that provide patients with less pain and typically no bruising, Dr. Jacono uses the microcannula technique which has some very distinct advantages over the standard needle injections. For starters, the microcannula has a blunt tip instead of a sharp point like a needle does and it can also be flexible which allows for more precise injecting.
This cutting-edge technique has transformed the facial cosmetic industry and should replace the old standard needle methods. The microcannula technique works by sliding the blunt tip gently under the patient’s skin which does not tear the epidermis. This allows patients to undergo appearance improvements without the need for surgery or painful needles.
Dermal Filler Injections
Prior to the microcannula, Dr. Jacono would perform all filler injections using a sharp tipped hypodermic needle. That old method would come with certain side effects. To begin with, being it is a sharp tip the needle presented a higher risk of puncturing small blood vessels when inserted into the skin. This is how bruising occurs. It also presented the possibility of the facial filler getting into the blood stream through the punctured vein which could lead to adverse reactions.
Because the microcannula has a blunt tip, it is naturally designed to eliminate the complications that are associated with sharp tips. The microcannula can be used to inject dermal fillers as well as fat grafts and cause less stress and pain on the patients.
Advantages of the Microcannula technique
With its flexibility and its blunt tip, the microcannula technique offers many advantages over traditional sharp tips which include:
- The microcannula is more maneuverable due to its flexibility
- Procedures can be completed quicker and with less pain due to the flexible design
- Damage to small blood vessels during the procedure are virtually non-existent
- Little to no bruising is caused since there is no damage to the blood vessels
- The stimulation of new collagen production occurs due to the microcannula
- Rarely are any side effects associated with the microcannula technique
