Cannula Lips are a perfect alternative for needle phobic clients, offering a more comfortable experience, with all the results!! This method also minimises the chances of bruising and swelling as the cannula is a blunt-tipped, hollow tube instrument that functions as an alternative to a needle when administering dermal fillers, this passes through the lip without causing any trauma. Blunt tip cannulas are safer than needles & less traumatic when used to inject dermal fillers, the procedure is also more comfortable & less painful for clients.  A small sharp introducer needle is used to create an entry point for the cannula in the skin. The cannula is then inserted into the puncture site and manuvered and twisted along the natural planes of skin tissue; this provides a large area to place the dermal fillers through a single entry point.

Benefits of Cannula Lip Filler

  • Cannulas are longer than needles, therefore more flexible, and more versatile for injecting filler.

  • Cannulas help minimise dermal fillers complications  injuries.

  • Using a cannulas for injecting filler reduces the likelihood of penetrating blood vessels, especially arteries which can have disastrous consequences when injected into.

  • Long length of a cannula allows for greater coverage & fewer injection points.

  • Having multiple injections with sharp needles around the lips can feel painful and uncomfortable. While a blunt cannula under the skin can feel like a ‘pushing’ feeling, it is usually not uncomfortable or painful.

  • Cannula Lip Filler reduces the amount of trauma to the lip, which results in less swelling & less potential of bruising, therefore quicker recovery, downtime is minimal.

  • Less pain & discomfort for the client as there are fewer entry points during the procedure.

  • Results last the same length of time as when treated with a needle.

  • Perfect for nervous or needle phobic clients.

Aftercare Advice Following Dermal Fillers (Cannula & Needle)

  • Your lips will likely be swollen after the procedure. You may also notice some redness or bruising at the injections sites, which is normal. Most side effects will be minor, and you will be able to resume most activities once the procedure is done.

  • Apply ice to your lips afterward using an ice pack or an ice cube covered in cloth (so it doesn’t stick to the lip and cause pain). This will help ease swelling, itching,  bruising, and any other pain.

  • Avoid strenuous exercise for 24 to 48 hours after you get lip or any other dermal fillers. Elevated blood pressure and heart rate from exercise may make swelling or bruising worse. You can take Arnica tablets for bruising if your doctor approves, you will be given complimentary Arnica gel to apply at home following your treatment. It’s fine to engage in light activity like walking.

  • Stay hydrated. Drinking plenty of water will help your body heal. Hyaluronic Acid is also a humectant (attracts water) so drinking plenty of water will lengthen the life of your fillers.

  • Eat plenty of hydrating fruits and vegetables and try to avoid excess sodium, which may worsen swelling. Eat fresh pineapple, as it contains bromeliad that has been known to decrease bruising.

  • Avoid high temperatures like steam rooms, saunas, or heated exercise classes for 48 hours after treatment. High heat can make swelling more pronounced.

  • Ask your doctor which painkillers are OK to take in the days after your treatment. Paracetamol are fine, but not blood-thinning medications like ibuprofen or aspirin.

  • AVOID - Aspirin, NSAIDS (Ibuprofen, Aleve, Motrin etc) St John's Wort, Vitamin E, Multivitamins, Krill Oil, Fish Oils, Flaxseed Oils, Omega-3, Gingko, Ginseng, Garlic & Glucosamine - These all thin the blood so can cause bleeding or bruises.

  • If you’re getting lip fillers for a specific event, make sure to leave plenty of time in between the procedure and the event to allow your lips to properly recover.

  • Try to sleep with your head elevated on pillows to reduce swelling. Do not sleep on your face.

  • Avoid makeup on your lips for up to 24 hours after.

  • Alcohol acts as a blood thinner and should be avoided for at least 24 hours after getting lip fillers. Alcohol can cause inflammation, increase the likelihood of bruising, and make swelling worse. It’s also a good idea to avoid alcohol a few days before your appointment. too.

  • Avoid flying for 1 week following your procedure. This is because the air pressure in a plane can make swelling and bruising worse.
