DermaSculpt Microcannula® for Dermal Filler

Cheerful healthy lady is visiting expert beautician

Medical procedures continue to evolve–especially in the world of non-invasive techniques like dermal fillers, aka “filler”. Traditional methods for injecting dermal fillers have been used on patients for years, but one of the most common complaints patients have is the pain and bruising that can come with these injection methods.

With a new revolutionary breakthrough in filler treatments, the pain and bruising most commonly associated with filler procedures could be lessened… Introducing the Dermasculpt Microcannula® technique for dermal fillers.

What makes the Dermasculpt Microcannula® a better alternative?
Utilizing a blunt cannula allows Dr. Paik to inject, sculpt and fill more than one area with just a single injection site, creating fewer injection sites–as little as 1-2 for each desired area. Fewer injection sites means less bruising, discomfort and pain. Also, due to the versatility of the new technique, it can be used for a variety of different procedures and injection areas, like correcting smile lines, depressions around the corner of the mouth, cheek lifts, lip augmentations, brow lifts or filling in hollow temples.
