A 36-year-old member asked:

which fillers last longer: restylane, (dermal fillers) juvederm, teosyal, esthelis, aquamid, or bio alcamid?

Possibly: Aquamid. Not all these fillers are indicated for every area of the body. Some of them aren't FDA approved and I hope they never are - they're right out dangerous.
Dr. Jennifer Tighe De Soto

I avoid "permanent": Though Aquamid (and others)is not available in the US, it is in other countries. (if it's being offered in the US you should avoid that office altogether). I generally recommend that my patients avoid permanent fillers though, especially when they are young like you, because you don't know how your face will change over the next 20 years. You may end up with volume where you don't want or need it.

I totally agree with Dr Tighe

Possibly in Cali : I understand that in california, dentists commonly inject Botox in addition tom numerous other cosmetic procedures. I do not know state regulations specifically with regards to dentists but it would seem that this would be in their practice scope particularly if treating tmj.

Yes - definitely!: I have had Botox and fillers done. They are very good for improving facial wrinkles and contour issues in the face. They do not replace a facelift. A board certified plastic surgeon can examin you and make the best recommendation for your particular needs.

Yes: Depending on the type of scarring they can work very well. Some types need to be replaced often while others can be almost permanent . There are other methods that are in office surgical that work for the same sort of scars and use your own tissue and look great. Visit an acne specialist who can help you decide what would be best for you skin type and type of acne scars.
