A common trade-off of injectables and fillers is potential bruising, which, in some patients, can linger for up to two weeks. Rather than using traditional sharp-tip needles, some doctors are reaching for blunt-tip needles-normally reserved for fat grafting-since they “don’t cause as much bruising,” says Boca Raton, FL, plastic surgeon Jason N. Pozner, MD. Whenever a needle punctures the skin, there’s the chance for blood flow to be interrupted. “When this happens, the end result is bruising,” says Dr. Pozner. When a blunt-tip needle, as opposed to a sharp one, is used, there’s less trauma to the skin and a decreased risk of bruising.
