ARTV is LIVE with The Liftie Aspirator Founder, Inventor & CEO, Tanya Patron, PA-C
Welcome to Aesthetic Record TV where we feature entrepreneurs, practice owners, and product managers who are making a difference in the Aesthetic community. We launched ARTV as your guide to building a more efficient, profitable practice by connecting you to incredible products that support small businesses! Here to kick off our very first episode is a Small Business Doing BIG Things!
In our first episode, we go one-on-one with Tanya Patron, PA-C. Tanya is an injection specialist and aesthetic educator with over a decade of industry experience. As if she isn’t busy enough with running her own Miami-based aesthetic practice, Selfie Aesthetics, Tanya is also the founder and CEO of two aesthetic brands with a handful of new product launches shared between them:
- Shop Aesthetically Speaking — an industry-focused T-Shirt and accessory company that “injects” casual wear into the workspace to spark exciting conversations between the providers, medical staff, and their patients.
- The Liftie Aspirator — a patent-pending disposable device that uses medical grade materials to allow for simple and controlled, single handed aspiration.
What Made Tanya Develop a Product Specifically for Aspirating?
“Being conscious of your patient’s anatomy and vasculature is very important. After all, your patients are your reputation. Therefore, preparation is truly the best tool to nailing perfect injections each time.” Tanya developed the Liftie Aspirator to protect your patients and give you the confidence to know that you can deliver safe, effective results with every treatment. The Liftie Aspirator is quick, simple, and comfortable. Most importantly, it really works!
What Exactly is Aspirating?
Aspirating is a simple safety check an injector can use to see if they are unintentionally injecting into a vessel. This is done by simply pulling back on the plunger of the syringe and watching for a flash of blood in the hub. Even if you do not see blood, it’s critical to still inject slowly and with small amounts. It is always possible that even with aspirating, your needle or cannula tip may inadvertently find its way into a vessel while injecting. While nothing is 100% safe, a solid understanding of the vascular anatomy is absolutely critical before injecting dermal filler, and the added check of aspirating increases your safety probability even more. Your syringe is your guide to ensuring that you are successfully aspirating. However, many injectors find it quite difficult to hold the syringe steady, aspirate, and begin injecting with one hand. Additionally, most aspirators work only with one or two syringe types, so injectors are required to have multiple aspirators to cover their portfolio of products. Not anymore!
How Can the Liftie Help You?
The Liftie was built and tested in a busy Aesthetic practice over the course of nearly 2 years! Tanya’s perfected the ergonomics of the Liftie so that it’s easy to get on and off but tough enough to stay affixed to your syringe while you work. These one-time-use tools are inexpensive but incredibly valuable to injectors! The Liftie can be used across all filler or toxin syringes and are the perfect fit for any size hand! After you inject, you simply toss your used Liftie which reduces the spread of germs and eliminates the need to sanitize. Check out the interview below to learn more about Tanya’s new product.
