Juvederm: Q&AAsk a Question
Should I Fear the Possibility of Arterial Occlusion with Juvederm Injection?
I had a vein tied off under my eye, leaving a small scar laterally to my eye. My PS injected it with steroids when he noticed an undisolved stitch. About two weeks later I was left with an indentation I assume is fat necrosis. He said it was an easy fix to fill in with Juviderm. I have very prominant veins in the area, and I am concerned he will occlude a vessel while injecting a filler. I am also concerned about the Tyndell effect around such thin skin. Should I insist on using a cannula?
