Testimonial: “I found Dr. Leong while looking for a facial plastic surgeon in Pittsburgh. I had a unique issue with my orbicularis oculi muscle being "thicker" than normal. This caused a baggy appearance under my eyes, and when smiling it created a deep crease under each eye that I found very unattractive. After doing some research, I contacted Dr. Leong and so far I've had two injections 3 months apart. Not only is he a great injector, he is very knowledgeable, honest, and is very willing to address any concerns/questions you have. I'm so thankful I found this doctor!” – Jessica K.

Microcannulas are an exciting alternative to the traditional needles used to deliver dermal fillers in that they are extremely useful in reducing swelling, redness, tenderness and numbness.
What are microcannulas?
Microcannulas are a bold leap forward in cosmetic science, helping to reduce time, discomfort and bleeding. As an alternative to conventional injection needles, microcannulas can fill a whole lip, fold, jawline, temple area or hand region with just one or two punctures rather than dozens. Additionally, less filler is required when using a microcannula, so the treatment is more cost-effective. And there are even more benefits to using microcannulas! Originating in France, this technique can be used even without fillers to help stimulate collagen renewal.
How do microcannulas affect recovery?
The primary reason for using microcannulas is to help reduce recovery time by lowering the risk of bleeding, swelling, bruising, pain, trauma and damage to the skin. Since a microcannula uses a single entry point to the dermis, fillers can be applied in a far more precise manner, with smoother, more uniform results. Additionally, there is a side benefit of collagen production.
