No Point | Dermal Fillers with Cannula
Up until recent years hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers have been injected using hypodermic needle, a sharp tipped technique that comes with potentially several side effects. Now, we are able to inject dermal filler using blunt tip cannula. This has been proven safer and more effective than traditional needle injection. The reason for this is that the tip of the hypodermic needle is extremely sharp which means that inserting it into skin has higher risk of poking the small blood vessels right under the skin where the HA filler is injected. This will cause some bleeding and bruising. While this is rare with the hours of training that our providers receive, injecting a HA filler solution into the punctured vein causing the hyaluronic acid to move into the blood stream can cause significant complications for the patient.

Benefit using Blunt Tip Cannula | Dermal Fillers Northern Virginia
The other reason that we prefer to use the blunt tip cannula while injecting the HA dermal fillers such as Restylene is that we are able to treat multiple areas using a single site.

Once the initial puncture is made the treatment becomes nearly painless.
