Question: Do injection techniques differ with different injectable fillers, i.e. the depth of the injection, the area of the injection, etc.?
Answer: Great question! Absolutely! Various dermal fillers have different injection techniques and depth of injection but the technique also depends on the location on the face and the particular anatomy of the patient being injected. Your plastic surgeon may use a combination of techniques such as serial injection, retrograde injection, anterograde injection, vertical vs horizontal injection, Fern technique injection, intradermal vs supraperiosteal injection, etc.
