Dysport/Botox first: In this situation, you need to get Dysport or Botox to relax the muscle first. After a few weeks, if the line is still present, you can use a filler to help further improve results. Belotero, although not fda approved for this region, can be used to accomplish this task. Be aware that a very rare complication of skin necrosis is possible with any filler in this region. ...Read more

Juvederm is the hyaluronic acid dermal filler sold by allergan for the purpose of enhancing the deeper lines formed on the face--most notably, the nasolabial folds. Many other 'off label' uses such as enhancement of the cheeks, tear troughs, lips, etc have also been performed. This substance lasts in most ...Read more

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

Which fillers last longer: restylane, (dermal fillers) 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

What's the difference between perlane and restylane (dermal fillers)? They seem to have the same ingredients. So why is my doctor recommending perlane over restylane (dermal fillers)? .

What's the difference between perlane and restylane (dermal fillers)? They seem to have the same ingredients. So why is my doctor recommending perlane over restylane (dermal fillers)? .

Perlane (dermal fillers) thicker: Perlane is a thicker version of Restylane (dermal fillers) so lasts longer and gives more volume due to the larger particle size, therefore you get more "bulk" and lifting with perlane. These properties make Perlane more suited for deeper folds such as nasolabial folds and marrionette lines whereas Restylane (dermal fillers) is better for lips and tear trough where the skin is thinner. ...Read more

Belotero is designed to gointo fine lines of the lip and also deeper wrinkles. It can be delivered superficially without blue formation ...Read more

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.

However, any physician who offers to inject aquamid (as of today, 9/29/13) is violating federal law- beware! ...Read more

Can you be allergic to juvederm? What are some alternatives?

Unlikely: Juvederm is hyaluronic acid, a natural component of skin. Because of this, your body should see it the same way it does all the rest of the hyaluronic acid in your body. The manufacturing process, however, involves the use of bacteria to produce the hyaluronic acid. You may be allergic to bacterial proteins that are still contained in Juvederm. ...Read more

Is juvederm safe while taking peginterferon and ribasphere. No mor detail

I would wait to use: Usually when being treated with peg interferon and ribavirin, you become immunosuppresed (i.e. Low immune system), so any other injections like juvederm can lead to local inflammation/skin reactions, infections and confound the other symptoms that you might be experiencing while undergoing treatment. I would wait to use juvederm until you finish your treatment therapy. ...Read more

Does juvederm migrate? I've heard that juvederm can move from the injection site if you're not careful. Is that true? .

Not Far.: Juvederm can move a bit from the injection site, but not far. If you put pressure on the area you can displace it to the sides a bit and smooth it out (this can be helpful if you have lumps or bumps afterward). It does not move to other areas of the face or body because of connective tissues under the skin.

I was given hyaluronidase injections for lumpy juvederm. The areas are still hard and lumpy but have gone down a little. Do I need more?

I would wait: Without seeing or feeling it, I cannot confidently say you would need more or not. After filler injections (juvederm, restylane, (dermal fillers) or perlane), feeling some lumpiness is common, but it should not be visible. If it is not visible, leave it alone. If it is visible, massaging it gently 30 sec twice daily helps to soften it. Also, fillers are also firm for 1-2 weeks after injecting, then they soften. ...Read more

Please tell me if it is safe to get juvederm while breastfeeding?

Please tell me if it is safe to get juvederm while breastfeeding?

Probably: Juvéderm is made of hyaluronic acid, a substance normally found in your skin. It is unlikely that you would have any problems while breast feeding. That being said, most physicians will avoid doing elective procedures on patients who are pregnant or breast feeding, just because of the liability.

How can I avoid little bumps after juvederm injections? I seem to always develop little bumps at the juvederm injection sites. They do go away, but i'd like to avoid getting them in the first place. Is there anything I can do? .

It: It is not possible to give you an answer without more information. The best thing to do is go back to your injector when you have the bumps and ask them what is going on and how to treat it.

Injection site bumps occur for a variety of reasons. The most common cause of injection site bumps is a small amount of swelling from the needle. This tends to resolve in 24 hours, and can be minimized with ice and light compression after your treatment. If the bumps are due to the filler being injected too superficially, a correction on administration will help as can light massage. Over doing the massage can lead to flattening of your results. ...Read more

Marketing verbage: Quite right - swelling or bruising is certainly "downtime". But many manufacturers like to downplay these possibilities.
For most patient's the swelling is minor, especially if you are conservative with the amount of material injected. You'll have to decide if you are comfortable with that idea. ...Read more
