This review of 6 case studies in Thailand reviews the danger of using cannula's in the nose for augmentation. 5 out of 6 cases of blindness from HA filler were in the nose with cannula's.
Performing filler injection into the nose is a very dangerous injection technique and Facecoach does not recommend you perform this treatment.
Main points from the Thai blindness case studies -
What was interesting -
"High risk areas include the glabella, nasal region, nasolabial fold, forehead and temple"
"The supra-orbital and supra-trochlear artery are effective locations for hyaluronidase injection due to their location and connections"
If you haven't read this clinical publication, you should.
Don't let instagram push you into performing nose filler injections. The risk is high. Cannula's will not ensure a safe outcome.
