I have had a bad experience with a nerve being hit during an injection, so I was wondering if there are more superficial fillers that lessen the chance of hitting a nerve or facial artery? Thanks!
Are Certain Fillers Injected Deeper Than Others?

Injectable Fillers, Depth and Nerve Injury
Every filler has an ideal depth for injection. Most of these are relatively superficial, but some (such as Radiesse and Sculptra) are designed to be injected at a deeper level. The depth is based upon the desired effect and the individual nature of the product.
