After reading a bit about DermaSculpt, but not understanding the difference between dermal filler injections and those administered through a cannula, I watched this video for a little education. I’d love to hear from other plastic surgeons, derms and patients about their experiences with this technique.http://dermasculpt.net/demonstration_videos/Dr_Karimi
From what I gather, DermaSculpt is a new technique for injecting cosmetic facial fillers using a blunt tip rather than hypodermic needles. According to the surrounding chatter on this technique, it provides excellent results using the same facial fillers and autologous fats through microcannulas of various sizes.
What are the advantages? Again, I have no first hand experience with dermal fillers, but from what I read, there is less discomfort and bruising than with needle injections, less risk of trauma to nerves and injury to blood vessels. You can see in this video how, without removing the cannula, it can be guided quite precisely while under the skin to treat multiple areas of the face. One insertion can treat a much wider area.
I am told that after the procedure, normal activity can be resumed very quickly and that there is virtually no bruising or swelling.
Now I’ll bet my readers would like to hear from other plastic surgeons, dermatologists and patients with personal experience with this procedure.
