Filler Injection/vein across nose bridge Danger(?)


Hi, I am interested in temporary filler to fill area from over rasping. I read that if the vein across nose bridge is hit, will go into eye area and or brain (causing permanent damage). I can see where mine is when I cough to bring it out. It is in the middle, hump area, a little to 'my' left (micro amount), about less than a quarter inch worth, then looks like it disappears. The last person I saw [PS] wanted to put temp/permanent Radiesse in there. Not a good idea (!) Wouldn't trust him about the vein either. I would like to know myself in testing where I go next to see who I may be dealing with if they really know what they are doing, as well as guide or help to make sure. Is everyone's in the area of nose I described ? Thank you for your knowledge...

Personally an expert injector can treat you but only an in person examination would allow a definitive diagnosis. seek more in person opinions. (more)

Hello,

It is typically not a good idea to use filler in the nose, as I have seen many complications arise. An examination would be necessary to provide you with any additional advice. (more)
