Microcannula technique is a technique used to deliver dermal fillers using a blunt tip cannula versus a traditional sharp needle. As dermal filler procedures increase, complications from these procedures are also increasing. Microcannulas allow less trauma during the injection process, reducing bruising, edema and intravascular occlusion. The technique requires a skillset different from traditional sharp needle approach. This workshop provides instruction on the different sizes and lengths of cannulas and faculty will demonstrate proper techniques.

Objectives:

  • Discuss the different lengths and sizes of microcannulas for different fillers and areas of the face.
  • Identify techniques for insertion of the pilot hole prior to placement of the microcannula.
  • Explain proper techniques for advancing the microcannula under the skin for smooth and accurate filling results.
  • Troubleshoot problems or frustrations encountered with performing injectable fillers with microcannulas.
