Can you tell me what's better lip implants or dermal fillers?

Can you tell me what's better lip implants or dermal fillers?

Filler problems: Post filler treatments patients can have some slight skin irritation but what you are describing appears more as if you had a reaction to the topical agent that was applied. Washing the area and moisturising it are the basic first steps and then have your treating physician see you soon. Some patients can get bruising post treatments and that takes a few days to disappear. ...Read more
