How to use DermaSculpt

Here's a step by step guide

DermaSculpt Microcannula puncture hole

Puncture a hole into the skin

The gauge of the sharp needle needs to be slightly superior to the gauge of the microcannula in use.

  • The 30G & 27G cannulas come packaged with a 26G sharp needle
  • The 25G cannulas come packaged with a 23G sharp needle
  • The 22G cannulas come packaged with a 21G sharp needle

Use the length of the Microcannula as a point of reference to where to make the hole.

DermaSculpt Microcannula introduction

Insert the tip of the Microcannula into the skin

Follow these tips from our most advanced injectors to guarantee an easy entry into the skin:

  • Insertion of the tip of the microcannula should be from a 60 to 90 degree angle until the correct depth has been found.
  • Pinch the skin to create a small drop of blood out of the puncture hole which should help you locate the hole.
  • Stretch the skin opposite direction with the non-injecting hand to help enlarge the puncture hole.
  • Place the index finger of the injecting hand close to the tip of the microcannula to help guide the cannula into the skin.
  • or hold the syringe like a dart.

A tip from Dr. Rajani: If you want to remain superficial, by pushing the cannula against the skin, The cannula bends and the tip goes back up.

DermaSculpt Microcannula introduction

Slide the DermaSculpt Microcannula into the skin

As you are entering the skin, rotate the cannula tangentially to the skin surface using the flexibility of the microcannula.

If any resistance is encountered, go back and forth without forcing.

DermaSculpt Microcannula introduction

Inject filler in a retrograde fashion

Start injecting while pulling the length of the microcannula in and out of the skin. To change direction, pull the cannula out of the skin almost entirely, back to step two (leaving the tip at the desired depth).


You can fan the area 360 degrees around the hole.



It's recommended to massage the skin after the injection to make sure the filler has been evenly distributed.

You can use our Post-Injection anti-bruising massage cream, PostFill, available here.
