microcannulasInjecting fillers (like Juvederm and Radiesse) is an art, and you want to make sure you are working with an expert. Because we are committed to exceptional care and service, Dr. Janowski has recently begun using a new and advanced technique for injecting fillers. Instead of the traditional use of a sharp, inflexible¬†needle, he is now using microcannulas to inject fillers. A microcannula is a tiny, flexible, and blunt needle that is threaded under the skin. Dr. Janowski can then “fan” and sculpt the filler into the desired areas with extreme precision.

The traditional technique for injecting a filler involves making several injection points with a sharp needle. Having multiple injection sites is often what can lead to bruising, as you are potentially breaking blood vessels with each injection. With a microcannula, you need only one injection point per area, and the cannulas is then threaded under the skin. The microcannula is so thin and flexible that it can actually move blood vessels out of the way instead of puncturing them.

The result is very precise placement of the fillers, a dramatically reduced chance of bruising, and very minimal pain.

Dr. Janowski explains and then demonstrates this advanced technique here:

The use of this new technique is all part of our passion for bringing you the highest quality aesthetic services available, and the best standard of care!
