When clients think of fillers like Botox and Juvederm, they often shudder at the thought of being repeatedly stuck with a needle. Is it painful? Will it leave scars? Will there be swelling? These are some of the top questions asked.
But Does Beauty Have to Mean Pain?
In the past, many of us have heard the term “no pain no gain”. Now this doesn’t have to be the case with new and improved methods to maintain beauty. Microcannula filler injections promise a less painful approach to getting noninvasive cosmetic procedures done, like fillers in the form of Juvederm, Restylane, Botox and others.
What Is It And How Does It Work?
The pain we feel from needles doesn’t necessarily occur from the surface point. This pain surfaces when needles penetrate deep into the layers of the skin. To counteract this, experts now make a small entryway from the surface, and then insert a smaller, duller and hollowed microcannula needle to inject the filler.
The cannulas are characterized by fine and flexible tubes that can be inserted at the puncture marks of traditional needles. Each target area for fillers will require between one and five entryways to get the best results. These results usually mean plump and more youthful looking skin.
Microcannulas are furthermore adapted for processes like Liposuction to minimize the risks of scarring and pain.
Benefits of Microcannula Injections:
- ~Lowered risk of bleeding and more rapid recovery times.
- ~Lowered risk of pain and discomfort during and after the filler injections.
- ~Lowered risk of rupturing blood vessels in the face.
- ~Lowered risk of surrounding tissues becoming damaged from repeat injections.
- ~No local anesthesia is required before or during the process.
Benefits of Fillers
Most popular fillers provide the following benefits:
- ~Increase cheek volume
- ~Remove fine lines and wrinkles
- ~Remove under eye circles
- ~Reverse other signs of aging
Fillers can be painful nevertheless, due to the areas usually targeted. The lips for instance are more delicate than other areas of the body due to thin skin. Microcannulas nevertheless, revolutionize the process, and to ensure no pain, the surgeon may still prescribe medicines for relief.
When it comes to noninvasive methods of reversing and/or preventing the signs of aging, fillers come in on the top tier of effective lists – even though injections are administered.
Ultimately, microcannula fillers are considered to be a more sane and practical method to look beautiful – in the least invasive way possible.
