When Dr. Schulz spent the weekend with fellow dermatologists at the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) conference in October, a hot topic at the podium was the safety and efficacy of using cannulas for injecting filler. A cannula is a tiny, thin, flexible metal tube that is used as a tool to administer dermal fillers and Sculptra®. Dr. Schulz has been using them for quite some time and trains other physicians at clinics across the country on this advanced injecting technique. “I use micro-cannulas to safely and comfortably enhance the natural contours of the face. They are particularly useful for tear troughs, lips and around the eyes, and cannulas greatly help to minimize bruising,” says Schulz. Infinity patients and staff have commented on the added comfort the cannulas provide during the actual procedure.
Dr. Schulz and her extensively trained nurse injectors offer patients a complete selection of injectable fillers to add youthful volume to the various features of the face and will customize the combination of fillers used based on a patient’s age, facial structure, bone and volume loss, and desired outcome. These include the Restylane® family of injectable fillers from Galderma, the Juvéderm family of fillers and Voluma from Allergan, Inc., and Sculptra®, a collagen stimulator that stimulates a patient’s own collagen production to restore volume loss.
