Hemoglobin in the blood absorbs infrared light. When the device is held above the skin, veins appear noticeably different than the surrounding tissue. The vasculature shows up clearly on the skin’s surface, aiding in vein location for access and avoidance.
Absolutely not. The device never touches your skin. Our medical assistant simply focuses the beam on the area to be injected and the veins instantly and clearly become obvious.
Dr. Pilest has been using microcannulas for placing most fillers for the past two years. MicroCannulas allow for a single port instead of multiple needle sticks. The smooth round tip of the cannula pushes veins out of the way. The AccuVein allows him to see the veins before even making the initial opening for the cannula.
Combined, the cannula, and vein illumination provide the best opportunity for a “no bruise” injection procedure that exists!
Dr. Nissan Pilest is a member of the distinguished Expert Injector collaboration and holds the Circle of Excellence in Soft Tissue Fillers through the American Society of Dermatologic Surgeons. Dr. Pilest performs all injections for dermal fillers and neuromodulators at Total Dermatology.
