Cannula and Needle Solutions
In Aesthetic medicine, a blunt-tip micro cannula (also called smooth tip micro cannula, blunt tipped cannula or simply blunt needle) is a small tube, with an edge that is not sharp, designed for atraumatic intradermal injections of fluids or . Depending on the size of the inter diameter, it can be used either for fat transfer, or for the injection of fillers, like Hyaluronic Acid, Collagen, poly-L-lactic acid, CaHA, etc. The advantage of using these cannulas is that they are less painful, have less risk of bruising, and have a better safety profile. An intravascular injection is near impossible with the cannulas making the risk of blindness when injecting around the eye much safer. Skin necrosis risk is also lowered.
Needles are used for wide array of aesthetic medicine procedures like anaesthetic, botulinum toxin, PRP, dermal filler injections, etc.
