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).

You may end up with volume where you don't want or need it. ...Read more

How does botox or Restylane (dermal fillers) treatment work?

Differently!: Botox and Restylane (dermal fillers) are not similar at all and they are not interchangeable. Botox relaxes the muscles under the skin which allows the skin to move less and have less wrinkles. Motion wrinkles go away quickly, resting wrinkles take multiple treatments.
