Injectable Treatments: Botox & Filler Injections > Blunt Filler/Fat Injection Cannulas - Disposable vs Reusable - Trauma reduction

Understand the diameter you harvest through determines the diameter that can be used for injection when working with fat. There are currently appropriate diameters available for fat and filler injections in both disposable and autoclavable versions. Looking for thoughts on blunt vs sharp cannula, trauma reduction, and disposable vs reusable.

I have converted almost entirely to blunt cannula injection of fillers. I prefer disposable blunt cannulae for Restylane, Juvederm Ultra XC and Juvederm Ultra Plus XC, and Radiesse in my St Louis, MO practice.

Watch this example of disposable blunt cannula filling. Previously, with needles, this patient would have been black and blue by the time I finished.
