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

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). 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. ...Read more

Caution!!!: Aquamid is polyacramide gel and is not approved for use in the United States. It is considered a permanent filler as the particles cannot be broken down by the body. Several formulations have appeared overseas and chronic problems have been encountered. Artefill is the ony fda approved permanent filler. Make sure you see a reputable dermatologist, facial plastic surgeon, or plastic surgeon. ...Read more

Does aquamid injectable filler have a long safety history in the united states?

Does aquamid injectable filler have a long safety history in the united states?

No: Aquamid is not a common filler in the United States. More commonly, juvederm, restalyne, radiesse, Perlane and others are used. I would recommend one of these fillers, or a fat transfer in permanent filling is desired. ...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

Is the skinception stretch mark product safe to use? Why is fda approval not needed?

Is the skinception stretch mark product safe to use? Why is fda approval not needed?

Maybe: I would not use this if i was pregnant or going to be pregnant as it is absorbed into the skin. No fda because it is not considered a prescriptive drug and i would be leary of any claims (they can claim anything). The best claims are backed up by double blind studies not paid for by the company. Buyer be ware. ...Read more
