THE WAY FORWARD FOR DERMAL FILLERS


F


OR HUNDREDS OF YEARS, syringe injections have been accomplished by direct pressure exerted by the human thumb. Today, with more


viscous fluids such as the dermal fillers used in the aesthetic marketplace, thumb force alone has made it challenging to comfortably, uniformly, and consistently deliver the appropriate volumes of materials used in this treatment procedure. Practitioners have multiple factors


to consider when using dermal fillers: ■Injection angles create cumbersome hand positioning to depress plungers


■Injection depth can be hard to maintain


■Consistent pressure for precise volume can be very difficult to maintain


■Controlled retrograde injection can be challenging


■Slow, controlled injection rates create significant hand fatigue. These challenges are all on the mind of the aesthetic practitioner injecting dermal fillers. However, the Artiste® Assisted


Injection System addresses all these challenges, offering a highly effective alternative for the injection of sterile materials — including dermal fillers. This automated system can offer an


improved process over manual injection for most dermal fillers. Carbon dioxide (CO2


) gas pressure is


used to create the forward motion of the syringe plunger, which is controlled by a start/stop foot pedal. The practitioner can keep both hands relaxed with a comfortable grip of the delivery handpiece, further reducing the hand fatigue and variable syringe pressures experienced with viscous materials. Rather than focus on the syringe mechanism, the injector can concentrate on the patient, treatment area, and the final result.
