Abstract

Minimally-invasive non-surgical procedures are becoming the norm in the aesthetics industry and, considering that patients are becoming more familiar with the latest advances in treatments and techniques due to television programmes, magazines and the internet, it is incumbent on aesthetic nurse practitioners to provide the best and most effective techniques available. In this article, the author details a case study of a 38-year-old female who presented to her with lack of volume in the mid-face. The patient was treated with 2 syringes of Radiesse 1.5 cc using a 25 gauge blunt-tip cannula. Following this, the author outlines the advantages and disadvantages of using a blunt-tip cannula, including its efficacy, cosmetic outcome, patient satisfaction and ease of use. The author will also explore the limitations of cannula and how important it is to select treatment indication to cannula size and/or usage. The author concludes by giving a candid overview of the highs and lows she has experienced when using blunt-tip cannulae in practice.
