Any side effects from supartz (hyaluronic acid) injections?

Any side effects from supartz (hyaluronic acid) injections?

Very rare: Supartz (hyaluronic acid) injections are a type of "visco-supplementation" treatment for knee arthritis. Side effects are exceeding rare, but any injection into the knee joint could introduce an infection or cause an inflammatory reaction to occur. I have used supartz (hyaluronic acid) in my practice for nearly 14 years on a regular basis without any documented side effects. ...Read more

Best treatment for nasolabial folds/smile lines? Juvederm, Restylane (dermal fillers) or Radiesse? How much do they cost? Which lasts longest & has least side effects?

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

I get cheeks with Restylane (dermal fillers) filler or perlane filler. How long filler lasts?

Filler Duration: In my experience, hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane (dermal fillers) and Perlane last about 9 months up to and just over 12 months when used for cheek augmentation. Perlane should last somewhat longer than Restylane (dermal fillers) due to it's more heavily crosslinked ha design. ...Read more

How do botox and Restylane (dermal fillers) injections differ?

How do botox and Restylane (dermal fillers) injections differ?

Different drugs: Botox is what we call a neurotoxin. It's a purified protein that blocks the transmission of a signal from the nerve ending to the muscle. By doing so, it allows the muscle to relax and in turn, it gives the skin a chance to relax and the wrinkles disappear. Restylane (dermal fillers) is a hyaluronic acid that is injected under the skin to fill depressions. It's usually used to reduce laugh lines or plump the lips. ...Read more

Got juvederm fillers on lips which caused a bump, doc says it's a clot that should've re absorbed by now. Could this travel and kill me?

Got juvederm fillers on lips which caused a bump, doc says it's a clot that should've re absorbed by now. Could this travel and kill me?

Extremely unlikely: I suspect that the swelling is not a clot at all, but just some of the filler that "clumped up" and didn't smooth out. It will eventually subside if this is the case. But it even if it IS a blood clot, your body is likely to digest it over a few days or weeks. It's unlikely to be large enough to cause a problem, and even if it migrates, it won't go directly to the lungs or anything. No worries. :) ...Read more

I am considering getting lip fillers, the consultant uses Juvederm. How do i know I won't have a reaction I have never had a cosmetic procedure before?

Great question: The incidence of an allergic reaction to fillers is very low. Many people might get a reaction in terms of: swelling, mild redness or discomfort. These are expected. Like with most things you have never tried, you won't know until you try. Talk with a plastic surgeon and make sure they know your entire medical history to make the best decision ...Read more

Fillers : Fillers such as Restylane (dermal fillers) and juvederm can be used to fill in the hollows under the eyes or tear trough. Some injectors aren't comfortable with treating this area mainly related to the thin skin which makes it less forgiving. You should be able to find someone who has experience treating this area with fillers. ...Read more

How many people end up with a lot of swelling or unevenness after radiesse (dermal fillers)? I'm really interested in getting this, but i'm worried about possible severe side effects. How likely is a bad reaction? .

How many people end up with a lot of swelling or unevenness after radiesse (dermal fillers)? I'm really interested in getting this, but i'm worried about possible severe side effects. How likely is a bad reaction?

.

Swelling : Swelling or lumps or asymmetry can occur with any dermal filler. Radiesse is a thick white substance and it is less forgiving to back technique. It is harder to mess up juvederm or Restylane (dermal fillers) but all of these are technique dependent. A good injector can get you good results with minimal risk and a bad injector can make you look odd. There are some other issues as well. For example Radiesse should never be injected in the lips no matter how good the injector is. See a few good plastic or facial plastic surgeons and do not base your decision on cost-savings alone. You often get what you pay for. ...Read more

Which lasts longer? Lip fillers or lip fat transfers? & how long do they last? & what are the possible side effects?

Fillers Temporary: Lips can be augmented with biologic tissue fillers (dermal fillers), synthetic implants, or your own fat.
