In brief: Caution!!!

Aquamid is polyacramide gel and is not approved for use in the United States.
It is considered a permanent filler as the particles cannot be broken down by the body. Several formulations have appeared overseas and chronic problems have been encountered. Artefill is the ony fda approved permanent filler. Make sure you see a reputable dermatologist, facial plastic surgeon, or plastic surgeon.
