Why Use a Microcannula You Might Ask? Why Would You Not?!
A microcannula is a small, flexible, blunt-tip needle that can be used to inject a variety of fillers in replace of using a traditional, sharp needle. The microcannula has mainly replaced the use of sharp needles in Europe, and that practice is quickly sweeping across the US as well. Dr. Leong is not only an expert in Facial Plastics but he has been using Microcannulas for years and has even presented on their use at national conferences.
Dr. Leong feels that microcannulas are superior to sharp needles for all areas of the face including injecting fillers like Restylane and Juvederm to the nasolabial folds, tear trough, marionette lines, and cheeks.
The microcannula is known to cause less bruising and swelling, less downtime and discomfort, and is shown to often improve the outcome of your cosmetic procedure. Contact our Patient Care Coordinator at 412.621.3223 or email at [email protected] to learn more and to book your next appointment!
