When it comes to considering Botox or fillers you may have head that bruising can be an issue.

There is now a growing method to achieve little to no bruising through use of a new delivery method.

What Is Filler?

When people discuss fillers they do so in such general terms that you may not have the most accurate idea of what they actually are and how they work.

A filler typically refers to a hyaluronic based product which is able to fill in the areas of your skin where volume has been lost.

For many, these areas include the lips, the tear troughs, nasolabial folds, and cheekbones, among many others.

Can I Avoid Bruising?

One of the biggest question asked by those injecting fillers is if they will experience bruising.

While most patients do experience some level of bruising with the traditional needle injection method many doctors are now using a microcannula instead.

What Is a Micocannula?

A microcannula is a blunt tipped needle.

The blunt needle tip allows the filler to be distributed under the skin using only one hole rather than the many typically applied with a needle. This allows for more specific placement and is able to reach deeper in to the skin.

As a result of filler injection with a microcannula patients typically experience less bruising than through the needle method.

How Long Do Fillers Last?

Depending on how long you would like your filler injections to last the prices differ.

Needless to say, the fillers which last longer such as one to two years generally cost more than the short term fillers which can last anywhere from six-to-11 months.
