Aquamid and juvederm, which one is better?

Aquamid and juvederm, which one is better?

Juvederm : Only juvederm is fda approved and legal in the us. Aquamid has gone through clinical trials but has not been approved for any use in the us. Aquamid may provide long-term or permanent correction as opposed to juvederm, which lasts only several months. However, any physician who offers to inject aquamid (as of today, 9/29/13) is violating federal law- beware! ...Read more

Aquamid?: hello- here is an eye-opening Q+A site on the Web. It appears Aquamid (acrilamide+water) is not certified by FDA in California and although they say its risk and S/E free, this is not borne out by these users anyway. You should see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for the further mgt of this condition. thx https://www.realself.com/question/california-aquamid-doctor-recommendations ...Read more

Which fillers last longer: restylane, juvederm, teosyal, esthelis, aquamid, or bio alcamid?

Which fillers last longer: restylane, juvederm, teosyal, esthelis, aquamid, or bio alcamid?

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).

You may end up with volume where you don't want or need it. ...Read more

Not Much: In the us the standard of care for lip enhancement and dermal fillers is hyaluronic acid. Examples include juvederm, restylane. Other products last longer such as Radiesse which is used for dermal but not lips. Aquamid is a polyacrylamide as is considered a permanent filler. It is safe and lasts longer but if new to fillers try the other ones first just in case you don't like the results. ...Read more
