Dr Ryan Greene Facial Plastic Surgeon Weston FloridaWhy Choose an Experienced Injector for Facial Fillers?

Blog Post October 11th, 2018 - by Dr. Ryan Greene

And this is why you should only choose an experienced master injector for your fillers! Yes, that is blood inside this Juvéderm Voluma syringe.

So how did it get there?

To ensure a safe procedure, I always pull back on the syringe to ensure that the needle has not entered a blood vessel. As you can see here, this needle was obviously in a blood vessel, so I didn’t inject the filler. I then continued the treatment, and the patient got a great result.

Most injectors rush their injections, and don’t utilize a safe technique that avoids intravascular injection. Just remember: These are medical treatments, and there are real risks that can be avoided by an injector with an intimate knowledge of facial anatomy and careful technique.
