Don’t miss our monthly series of articles dedicated to a specific area of the body, this month we present the use of the micro-cannula on the body.
Dermal fillers are a popular way to rejuvenate the appearance of patients wishing to achieve aesthetic goals without surgery. With the success of nose, cheekbone or lip injections, the great majority of patients associate dermal fillers with the face only. However, dermal fillers in combination with micro-cannulas are just as effective and beneficial for the body. They are perfect for anyone who wants to tighten, smooth or improve body defects. SoftFil® stands out from the competition with its wide range of micro-cannulas suitable for every body part and every injectable area. Below you will find a summary of the most common treatments and illustrations of the use of our micro-cannulas.
Breast injections are among the most requested areas by patients. This is due to the sagging of the skin caused by age, weight and lifestyle. The skin becomes more wrinkled and loose, an unsightly aspect to which many are attached. Hyaluronic acid-based fillers can currently improve the appearance of this area and make it more beautiful. In combination with the SoftFil® Precision 14G90 micro-cannula, patients can quickly regain the desired appearance, with less pain and, above all, without infections, bruising or swelling.
Synonymous with summer and a dream body, the buttocks area joins the breasts among the most requested operations.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, despite a decrease in the demand for cosmetic surgical procedures, the demand for buttock implants and buttock lift in aesthetic medicine has increased by 22% from 970 to 1179. This increase in demand can be explained by the abundance of photos of round and toned buttocks on social networks, which influences the vast majority of patients. In aesthetic medicine, fillers can replace scalpels because with less pain, the buttocks area becomes more toned and less sagging.
Hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally present in the body (and therefore biodegradable and biocompatible), is today the most popular innovative technique for reshaping the buttocks as the most effective alternative to plastic surgery. The volumizers allow a real modeling of the areas to be treated according to the patient’s desire. This hyaluronic acid injection technique using the SoftFil® Precision 16G90 micro-cannula allows for the shaping of the buttocks as well as a soft and more natural texture to the touch. The operation is not very painful and there are no scars to shape the buttocks.
Neck and décolleté:
Often less maintained than the face, the neck and décolleté are critical areas that require special attention. The area loses its firmness quite early, from the age of 40, and marks the body with the first signs of aging. A treatment of the neck and décolleté with the SoftFil® Precision 20G70 micro-cannula has the advantage of requiring only one point of entry; it is a safe and atraumatic injection for the skin. The results are a refined, smoothed and rejuvenated area. This treatment can be combined with injections of medium cross-linked fillers on the chin and mandible for more precise results.
The treatment of wrinkled arms without surgery is a very common treatment in both cosmetic surgery and cosmetic medicine. Unlike the areas mentioned above, treatment of the arms can be done at any age. Rarely known for its fragility, the area can be damaged by frequent weight changes, sun exposure or thin skin. In order to fill in volume loss and tighten it harmoniously, we recommend the use of the SoftFil® Precision 18G90 micro-cannula with a hydrating and plumping filler.
Who doesn’t dream of a perfect flat belly and a slimmer silhouette in the abdomen? Men or women, everyone aspires to obtain a harmonious silhouette. With age, yoyo phases or pregnancy, wrinkles and folds appear on the abdomen, which form from the sternum to the navel and around the ribs. In spite of the fact that liposuction is often required, aesthetic medicine can also remedy this situation with hyaluronic acid injections. The SoftFil® Precision 20G90 micro-cannula easily reaches the injectable area thanks to its long tip, without side effects and with few entry points.
Typically used as a medical treatment for osteoarthritis, hyaluronic acid injection to the knee area is an excellent remedy. Indeed, the knee area is experiencing a progressive destruction of the cartilage to which is added the loss of quality of the articular synovial fluid which is an essential element of a healthy cartilage. Hyaluronic acid is one of the constituents of synovial fluid, in order to introduce it properly we recommend our SoftFil® Precision 18G70 micro-cannula.
The thigh area is one of the areas affected by sagging skin, the thighs can become looser looking. Intense sun exposure or a poor lifestyle can be the reasons for this sagging. This unattractive effect can be a source of complexes for people who avoid wearing swimsuits or clothes that highlight their thighs. In order to remedy the loss of thigh curves, hyaluronic acid injections can be very effective in combination with the SoftFil® Precision 16G70 micro-cannula.
The use of the micro-canula represents a real revolution in the medical aesthetic field. Thanks to its round, blunt tip, it allows easy injection of fillers and saves patients from extensive surgery.
