First, always remember to wear gloves to keep everything clean and without staining us. In the filling, the most common needles are Magnum or RS. I would recommend the 13 Magnum, which is great for filling.
Now, voltage is essential. Keep it low to avoid damaging the skin. It is better to go through several times with a low voltage than to risk injuring the customer. So put the machine down and get to work!
I will show you three ways to fill: the first is to make small circles, the second is to make short crossed stripes, and the third is to make straight lines with a slight angle. You can try all of them to find the one that works best for you.
When using the Round Magnum needle, angle the needle slightly to avoid open skin pores for a more solid fill.
Remember that patience is key. Work with movements from the wrist, not the shoulder, and stretch the skin well for best results.
Always take care of the cleanliness of the cartridge and, if necessary, clean it for the injection to be perfect.
