Rachel Imperato, Nurse Practitioner attends many different trainings each year and is always trying to find new techniques that are easier on our patients and involve less downtime.
The last several months she has been perfecting her technique of doing lip injections with a cannula. A cannula is a blunt needle that easily pushes the product where she needs it without multiple pokes to the lips and was recently approved by the FDA. In fact, she only uses a needle on the corners of the mouth and feeds the cannula through it. This technique involves less bruising, swelling, downtime and is much safer than needle injections. Our patients are loving their results!
