Our industry-leading, low force injection techniques help to ensure maximum control, comfort, and effect. Our crosslinking properties add a layer of stability and homogeneousness, allowing for greater softness and elasticity, and our syringes are perfectly sterilized to guarantee safety.
BASIC TECHNIQUE USED WHILE PERFORMING SOFT TISSUE AUGMENTATION. The technique is performed using 27 G (0.4×1.3 mm) needle. The needle is positioned minimum angle wise (parallel to the skin) and inserted 2-3 mm deep into the dermis. Bevel of the needle is facing upwards, it goes all the way into the skin alongside a wrinkle or a fold. The needle can be contoured, but it mustn’t be highly visible. The solution is injected whilst retracting the needle through exerting an even pressure on the syringe plunger. It is important to stop injecting before the full removal of the needle from the skin. The depth of injection: reticular dermis.
This technique is similar to the linear threading. The difference is after the injection the needle is not completely withdrawn, but rather turned inside the skin at an acute angle, before making another 2–3 moves with a retrograde insertion of the product into the dermis. This move vaguely resembles that of a hand fan, thus the name of the technique. Fanning technique allows to create volume in a larger area than it’s possible while using linear threading, because the latter requires a single skin puncture at a time.
A series of parallel linear injections (5-10 mm apart) is followed by a second series of injections perpendicular to occurring lines. This technique creates an even supporting filling in depressed areas of the skin.
Fern pattern technique
This method was introduced by Tom Van Zhinn (Holland). A series of linear injections perpendicular to the wrinkle, performed starting from the center of the wrinkle first in one direction (4-5 mm apart), then in the opposite direction. New injection spots must be placed between the previous ones.
This technique consists in administering multiple injections alongside the wrinkle. The needle is inserted 2-3 mm deep at an acute angle. Multi-puncture technique is used in superficial wrinkle treatment.
Modified multi-puncture technique, typically used for lips, chin and cheekbones correction. Volume of administered filler usually amounts to 0.1-0.2 mm for lips correction, it is injected submucously. Alternatively used for lacrimal groove and cheekbones correction; injected supra-periosteally. Volume of administered filler up to 0.5 ml
Techniques used in BIO-REVITALIZATION PROGRAMS (APRILINE® HYDRO) Papule injections
The needle is positioned minimum angle wise (bevel facing upwards) and inserted to the depth of the bevel (central layer of the dermis). When syringe plunger is pressed once, a small amount of the product is injected. A pale, clearly delineated papule appears at the time of injection. Face papule diameter – 2 mm; the distance between them – 1 cm (in case of excessive skin laxity and during wrinkle treatment – 3-5 mm). Papule technique can be performed during lower eyelid correction if there is no skin excess and oedema predisposition (papule diameter – 1 mm, distance between them – 5 mm). Papule technique cannot be implemented during upper eyelid correction.
The needle is positioned at an angle of 30-45° () and inserted to the depth of 2 mm (deep layer of the dermis). Micro-papule diameter – 1 mm; the distance between them – 1.5 mm. This technique is used when treating patients with thick skin, for facial contours, cheeks, neck and décolleté area correction (in case of deformational aging changes). Due to the fact that bevel facing is downwards , filler is distributed in the deeper layers of the dermis than by Papule injections technique.
Injection volume – 0,01-0,03 ml. The distance between the injection points is 1.0-2.5 cm, between the lines – depends on injectable area.
The diameter of the “Bumps”: on the body – 4 mm, on the face, neck and chest area – up to 2 mm, on the lower eyelid – 1 mm. Used needles – 0,3 × 4,0 mm or 0,4 × 4,0 mm.
