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

Best we have: I understand your concerns. However, while the fda may be questioned, it is genrally the best agency available in most developed nations to control and regulate the distribution of drugs and food. While i may have many criticisms of the fda, it does provide some degree of protection with a relative degree of limited bias. One of the primary problems is the prohibitive cost of evaluation. ...Read more

Is i-131 mibg approved by fda for neuroblastoma?

Is i-131 mibg approved by fda for  neuroblastoma?

No.: It seems to have proven efficacy. Fda approval is difficult to obtain, and is not necessary for access to this treatment. There will likely be more progress toward fda approval when there is more consistency in the timing, dosing and other treatments. But this treatment is readily available in several large pediatric centers, regardless of the lack of fda approval. ...Read more

theclarkfirmtexas.Com/

Yes, but...: Fda approval for medical devices means something quite different than it does for drugs. Fda device approval only requires a fairly minimal review. It does not entail the kind of detailed safety and effectiveness studies that are required for drugs. The fact that a device is fda approved means little about whether it works or is a good idea. ...Read more

Which dermal filler procedures last longer?

Dermal fillers: Df all last about the same time. The minimal differences are just for marketing purposes. The truth is that fillers are a good way to assess how you feel with the volume restoration. You can continue with fillers once they wear off or, if you like the result, you can get fat injections that are more longer lasting. ...Read more
