At Miami Skin and Vein, one of our most popular treatments are cosmetic injectables. Dermal fillers, collagen stimulators, and neuromodulators are all available in our Coral Gables practice.
Dr. Shaun Patel focuses on nonsurgical facial aesthetics and can help patients turn back the hands of time with injectables. When it comes to dermal fillers, Dr. Patel likes to utilize the DermaSculpt microcannula injection technique to minimize discomfort and bruising.
What Is DermaSculpt Microcannula?
The DermaSculpt microcannula is a special type of needle that is used for atraumatic filler injections. The needle is blunt, allowing for a practically painless injection. The cannula slides into the skin through a small entry site, causing minimal skin trauma. It is safer than needles and decreases bruising often associated with cosmetic injectables.
The cannula is flexible, making it great for both superficial and deep injections. The injections are precise and the treatments are comfortable. Dr. Shaun Patel is well-versed in using DermaSculpt microcannula injections to ensure consistent results and happy patients!
Why Choose an Injection with DermaSculpt?
DermaSculpt is a great way to provide injections for patients because it has several benefits. It allows for less puncturing of the blood vessels and tissues, and is much more comfortable for our patients. This needle is also designed to allow for fewer skin punctures even in large treatment areas. Pain, swelling, and bruising are greatly reduced.
When compared to sharp needles, the DermaSculpt microcannula:
- Causes less bruising and swelling
- Is more comfortable
- Is blunt and flexible
- Comes in a variety of filler-specific sizes
- Requires less downtime
- Is safer and more accurate
- Requires fewer skin punctures to cover the same treatment area
- Creates more consistent and predictable results
- Stimulates collagen production
While the microcannula has many benefits, there are some instances where a traditional needle may be more appropriate. Dr. Patel will consider the specific filler being used, the treatment area, and the patient's aesthetic goals in order to select the best injection method.
