When administering injectables, most doctors use a needle (or cannula) and inject the filling agent by manually pushing on the plunger of the syringe, which is attached to the needle. But Artiste, a new advancement in injectables and fillers, may improve the accuracy and results of your treatment.
Artiste makes the administration of injections easier for your doctor and thus allows for more accuracy, reliability and control during your treatment. Controlled by a foot pedal, Artiste uses pressure driven by CO2 to deliver an adjustable, continuous flow of dermal fillers and sterile fluids. This means manual injection is unnecessary, resulting in less bruising and swelling post-procedure. West Palm Beach, FL, dermatologist Kenneth R. Beer, MD, likes to use Artiste on patients who require small amounts of correction for subtle change. “The product is dispensed consistently, slowly and precisely so there is no need to massage it in as much post-injection, leading to less lumpiness.”
The bottom line: Filling agents are placed more accurately in the skin with more control. Some physicians feel fewer injections are needed for more consistent and comfortable results with potentially less swelling and bruising.
If you’re planning on getting injections, here are four things you need to know beforehand.
