Filler using cannula

Many of my Houston filler injection patients are interested in filler under the eyes and filler in the lips. In the past, these injection were performed using a small needle which could cause trauma, bruising, and swelling to the these vascular and thin skinned areas. Today, by utilizing a cannula for injection of fillers into these areas, there is significantly less bruising and swelling. These types of cannulas have been used in the past for fat injection into the face. Today, Dr. Funk uses these cannulas to minimize bruising, swelling, and pain when using Restylane or Juvederm for the tear trough and lips.

Dr. Funk is a facial plastic surgeon performing filler injection in Houston.
