The Aesthetics Lounge Academy offer its advanced students a chance to learn how to administer dermal filler via cannula to provide a much safer and more comfortable treatment to their clients. By using a cannula the risks of arterial occlusion, filler blindness and nerve damage are greatly reduced, whilst brusing and pain are also reduced. Using cannula involves inserting a soft, flexible blunt tipped cannula into certain areas of the face to administer dermal fillers to give volume, reduce lines and to reshape and contour the face. Following the use of a small needle to create an entry point, the cannula is then easily pushed beneath the skin to disperse the filler in managed amounts to give the result the client desires.

The cannula class will equip advanced aesthetics practitioners with the knowledge and skills needed to use different sized cannulas and other equipment needed, whilst teaching them how to create an entry point in the skin using different gauge needles to allow a smooth insertion of the cannula for each specific area. Students will also gain more knowledge regarding anatomy & physiology, side effects, complications, medical questionnaires, consent and aftercare.


Areas treated using cannula include:

·      Lips

·      Nose

·      Nasal folds

·      Jawline

·      Cheeks
