Cosmetic Surgery is a constantly evolving field with technological advances occurring rapidly in the facial arena. Award winning Philadelphia Facial Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Anthony Corrado, is offering the revolutionary microcannula technique for all dermal filler procedures. This remarkable innovation has provided him a different means to place dermal fillers in the face, without the use of sharp needles, which dramatically minimizes bruising, pain, and downtime. Facial fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, and Radiesse can be utilized with this technique.
DermaSculpt® Microcannulas are FDA approved for facial filler injections. The Dermasculpt microcannula makes it possible to experience less bruising and pain from the in-office procedure as the tip of the microcannula is blunt and the body of the microcannula is flexible, allowing it to pass under the skin without tearing skin tissues. The same sharp point of a needle that breaks the skin can also nick tiny vessels and nerves as it moves through the tissue. The tip of the microcannula is smooth and rounded, allowing small vessels to be pushed out of the way, thereby decreasing bruising dramatically. Benefits include reduced pain, needle sticks, and downtime resulting in a more rapid recovery.
Microcannulas, though on the cutting edge of facial cosmetic technology, is in fact, not more expensive to you as the patient. Dr. Corrado has chosen to absorb the additional cost into his practice in order to continue providing the highest quality of services.
