The fact that I’m able to provide patients with a safer procedure, minimize their discomfort, and speed up recovery time just with this minor instrument change is incredible.

Facial plastic surgeon Jonathan Kulbersh, MD, trained in Beverly Hills, performs non-invasive eyelifts for patients with the use of dermal fillers like Juvederm, Restylane, and Perlane. Now, with the use of the new blunt-tip cannula, results have been significantly improved for patients.
Dr. Kulbersh of Carolina Facial Plastics PLLC in Charlotte, North Carolina, says that new blunt-tip cannulas, instead of the old technique of needle injections, are offering patients a quicker recovery time after treatment.
“With the use of a blunt-tip cannula to inject facial fillers around the eye and face, patients experience less bruising, pain, and swelling because the cannula causes significantly less trauma than a needle,” said Dr. Kulbersh.
Traditionally, filler injections around the eyes were difficult to perform because the needle caused significant trauma in this area. Since the blunt-tip cannula does not have a beveled sharp tip like a needle, it pushes the tissue to the side as opposed to cutting or slicing through it. This is also a safer technique to inject dermal fillers for a non-surgical eyelift. The cannulas come in a variety of sizes, giving Dr. Kulbersh greater precision and resulting in natural results.
“I’m finding that my patients are experiencing less discomfort, bruising, and swelling after liquid eyelifts. With the needleless injection technique, patients are consequently healing faster and having an improved experience,” explained Dr. Kulbersh.
The blunt-tip cannula can also be used for other non-invasive cosmetic procedures of the face, including filler injections for nasolabial folds, marionette lines and lip augmentations.
“The advantages that I’ve seen in using the new blunt-tip cannula are unparalleled. The fact that I’m able to provide patients with a safer procedure, minimize their discomfort, and speed up recovery time just with this minor instrument change is incredible,” said Dr. Kulbersh.
