Restylane: Q&AAsk a Question
How Does a Physician Know Exactly What Layer S/he is Injecting a Filler Into?
When a physician is placing a dermal filler, how is s/he able to tell which layer of the skin the filler is actually being deposited? For example, is it readily obvious if the needle or cannula is in the deep dermis vs underneath the dermis and sitting atop the muscle? Or if the needle is in the deep dermis vs the mid dermis?
