Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) October 24, 2012
World-renowned facial plastic surgeon Babak Azizzadeh, MD, FACS, will be featured on a news segment highlighting filler injections with new blunt-tip cannulas, which result in a faster recovery time, more accurate placement of the fillers, and virtually no discomfort for patients. The segment will air on Wednesday, October 24th, 2012 at 6:00 PM on Telemundo.
“I’m very excited about educating viewers about the benefits of the new blunt-tip cannulas for filler injections. I truly believe that it’s a great innovation that benefits both facial plastic surgeons and patients,” said Dr. Azizzadeh, founder and director of the CENTER for Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills.
Blunt-tip cannulas offer several different advantages as opposed to needles, which were previously the only option available for filler injections. New blunt-tip cannulas are much more flexible than a needle and come in several different sizes, allowing facial plastic surgeons, like Dr. Azizzadeh, more options to provide the best treatment possible for their patients. Blunt-tip cannulas are extremely useful for filler injections around the eyes, as they decrease the likelihood of causing any injury or trauma to the delicate area.
“In the past, needles were a necessary part of filler injections like Juvederm, Restylane, and Radiesse, but they often caused patients a great deal of pain, and in some cases, tissue damage at the injection site,” said Dr. Azizzadeh. “With the help of blunt-tip cannulas, a patient experiences less discomfort and no necessary downtime following their treatment.”
Another benefit of the blunt-tip cannula includes a facial plastic surgeon's ability to treat a larger surface area from only a single injection point. Before blunt-tip cannulas, it was necessary to make multiple injection points to achieve optimal results. For instance, now it is possible to plump a patient’s lips with only one smooth and painless injection from an experienced Beverly Hills facial plastic surgeon.
“Dermal filler injections are an extremely popular procedure that can help a patient look and feel younger. Innovative new blunt-tip cannulas will only add to a treatments appeal,” states Dr. Azizzadeh.
Telemundo has a larger audience than any other Los Angeles Spanish television station, and the news (noticias) broadcast featuring Dr. Azizzadeh will reach thousands of interested adults.
