Why Should I Get Dermal Fillers?
No matter whom you are, it’s tough to face getting older, especially when you have to watch your face become more and more wrinkled when you still feel young inside. Frown lines, wrinkles, and crow’s feet can drain your confidence in yourself and your appearance. No one can totally reclaim youth, but a good way to put a hop back in your step is to look into Dermal Fillers for those pesky frown lines and wrinkles.
But you might wonder what to expect when you think about getting fillers – many people experience severe bruising, swelling, and discoloration, not to mention general stiffness in facial expressions. This is because most doctors work with sharp needles that pierce your blood vessels during your filler injection and cause trauma to the site of entry. With so many side effects right after getting the procedure done, it’s hard to go back to your normal life. Luckily, however, there is an innovative technique called the microcannula technique that will let you go back to your normal life with minimal side effects from your procedure. If you live in Tampa, Florida, Dr. Pham can perform your filler injection using the microcannula technique.
About the Microcannula Technique
This technique is different than needles because it pushes aside blood vessels rather than piercing them. It can be used with many different fillers, including juvederm, and restylane. The microcannula technique minimizes bruising, pain, and swelling and in many cases, does not even require an anesthetic to be used. This is because the needle is blunt instead of sharp. It also does not require many points of entry – in most cases, only one or two are sufficient to inject wrinkled areas with fillers. Needles are also more flexible or stiffer depending on how deep the procedure has to go. There is a much smaller risk of complications like blindness, necrosis, or ophthalmoplegia. These complications can occur when fillers are injected into the space between the eyes. Because the technique only requires one point of entry and only moves aside blood vessels, there is a much smaller chance of these complications occurring.
With this technique, patients can go back to their normal lives in no time, because the microcannula technique does not cause any trauma. Whether you’d prefer to use juvederm or restylane, there is a size of blunt needle for each one, so Dr. Pham can decide the best course of action for your injection. What’s most important is that you maintain control over your appearance, and this technique lets you. Dr. Pham can make sure that you receive this great treatment with minimal downtime, so you can go back to being confident in no time.
