WhereismyDoctor.com member, Ritacca Laser & Cosmetic Surgery Center, is changing the dermal filler experience for the better with a needleless cannula.
The needleless cannula creates a more comfortable experience for the patient and minimal bruising associated with injection of dermal fillers like Restylane, Juvederm, and Radiesse for example, in the facial area.
A cannula is a small tube that is inserted into various areas throughout the body, and it is often used by doctors or plastic surgeons for the delivery and removal of fluid during surgery. Ritacca Laser Center now utilizes this blunt "needleless" cannula with most dermal filler injection sites.
Lori Langlie, patient at Ritacca Laser & Cosmetic Surgery Center says, “Bruising was a big concern and I experienced absolutely none….Dr. Ritacca was conservative and wanted to be sure I was going to be happy.” Langlie adds, “Everyone took their time and made me feel comfortable from the patient coordinator to check out at the front desk.”
Dr. Daniel Ritacca, medical director of Ritacca Laser & Cosmetic Surgery Center said, “Patients are pleasantly surprised with the level of comfort and the end result…using this non-bruising cannula also minimizes complications creating a much safer treatment.”
Plastic surgeons are already familiar with this non-bruising cannula, as it is used in body fat transfers and other surgical procedures, like liposuction.
Dr. Ritacca and his team have noticed better placement of dermal fillers with this type of cannula, minimal to no bruising and a positive experience overall from the treatment.
Touted as the “non-bruising needle”, the popularity of this dermal filler process also helps to eliminate the fear and pain that often comes with injection procedures.
The no-needle injection technique is a major advancement in plastic surgery for the safety and comfort of the procedure and also for the amazing results. Ritacca Laser & Cosmetic Surgery Center is one of the first to begin implementing this industry-changing technique, and many plastic surgery clinics worldwide are sure to follow suit.
