ViStylus’s effects on easing pain during facial needling and injections are clinically proven.
Using the body’s nervous system, viStylus impedes transmission of sharp pain sensation to the brain by closing a “gate” mechanism within cells in the dorsal horn of the spinal column. When viStylus is used close to an injection site, Ronald Melzack and Patrick Wall’s Gate Control Theory of Pain comes into play.
Stimuli created when viStylus is brought into contact with the skin, is received by large nerve fibres and transported to projection cells in the spinal column. When injecting, small nerve fibres carry sharp pain sensation to these same projection cells. When using viStylus and injecting simultaneously, inhibitory neurons “gate” the more intense pain of the needle tip and subdue its transmission to the brain.
Just as running a burn under cold water stops sharp pain, or rubbing a bumped elbow eases an ache, using viStylus while injecting dulls or eliminates pain.
On top of helping patients get over the sensation of injection, viStylus is also a great sculpting tool for dermal fillers.
I asked my patients, "with or without?", they all prefer me to inject with my viStylus.
Now my patients have felt the benefits of me using the viStylus while injecting, they make a point of asking for it.
Once you have used the viStylus for sculpting, moving and massaging dermal fillers after injection, it’s hard to imagine going back to traditional means. It’s ergonomic design, silk-smooth platinum-rhodium finish and 9000 oscillations per minute make it the tool of choice for discerning professionals.
In today’s competitive non-surgical cosmetics marketplace, artistry in the discipline is a key differentiator for a leading clinic or medispa. Using viStylus as a sculpting tool for fillers adds finish, detail and consistency to your treatments.
