Conventional sub-injection needles are similar to the cannulae that we know from medical injections. They are pointy, sharp and puncture tissue such as blood vessels. As a consequence, they can lead to significant bruising and swelling. In contrast, the new pix’L needle I use has a rounded, blunt point. It only requires a tiny inlet opening on the skin’s surface that is placed with a standard cannula. Once through this opening, the blunt pix’L needle gently glides along the natural fiber connections. Blood vessels and other sensitive structures are pushed out of the way and not penetrated. Using the cannula specially developed for hyaluronic acid and the different layers of tissue in the face, injecting fillers in an almost pain-free way is therefore possible - without unpleasant bruising or swelling.
Another special feature is the outlet opening of the blunt pix’L cannula. In contrast to normal cannulae, it is located on the side. An even flow of hyaluronic acid is guaranteed as a result. The flexibility of the cannulae also allows for the fillers to be guided very precisely so that optimum treatment results can be achieved.
