Tampa Bay Vein Specialist Uses New Technique to Reduce Bruising with Dermal Fillers
Tampa, FL — At his Tampa vein treatment center, Dr. Jeffrey Hunt has announced he will be employing an innovative new technique to perform dermal injections using a blunt tip cannula that minimizes bruising and pain. Focused on a wide range of cosmetic procedures from BOTOX® Cosmetic and laser skin rejuvenation to spider and varicose vein treatment in Tampa Bay, Dr. Hunt says the addition of the blunt tip cannula will help improve patient comfort during injections and reduce the bruising that often results from traditional sharp needles, enhancing the aesthetic appearance of his dermal fillers. He also says he is excited about the opportunity to continue perfecting his technique and ability to achieve effective results.
The blunt tip cannula, a variation on the traditional injection technique, utilizes fewer entry points to pass underneath the skin without cutting the skin or blood vessels. Dr. Hunt says the procedure is performed by sliding the device under the skin after making a small needle injection, and then the dermal filler is applied without pain or bruising. Because it enables flexible application, he says the blunt tip cannula can also cover a larger targeted area with the filler. Dr. Hunt says he will be using the technique to improve his practice’s performance of dermal injections in Tampa such as Radiesse®, Restylane®, Juvederm® and Sculptra.
Designed to alleviate facial lines and smooth skin that has been affected by natural aging, Dr. Hunt says dermal fillers in Tampa performed with the new technique can offer patients significant improvements to their facial appearance, creating a younger, more rejuvenated aesthetic. With the introduction of the flexible, blunt tip cannula, he says doctors will now be able to lower the risks associated with sharp needles and ultimately change the techniques by which dermal fillers are administered in the future.
Dr. Hunt adds that one of the most important factors in attaining beautiful, effective outcomes is the type of experienced provider a patient selects. He encourages all patients to consult an experienced provider before undergoing dermal fillers or any other procedure. In the hands of a skilled and qualified doctor, Dr. Hunt says the advancements in cosmetic medical technology can continue to provide patients with the highest quality results in improving their appearance and self-confidence.
