Does aquamid injectable filler have a long safety history in the united states? I am middle-aged woman. I was researching aquamid injectable filler online for for lip augmentation on my wrinkled and thin upper lip. I found that it was used more extensivel

Not Much. In the us the standard of care for lip enhancement and dermal fillers is hyaluronic acid. Examples include juvederm, restylane. Other products last longer such as Radiesse which is used for dermal but not lips. Aquamid is a polyacrylamide as is considered a permanent filler. It is safe and lasts longer but if new to fillers try the other ones first just in case you don't like the results.
Although. Although only recently approved in the us for non-cosmetic use, it has been in use in europe for many years. There are some patients there with good results but there are also numerous reports in the medical literature of severe adverse reaction to the product.

Aquamid. Aquamid has promise, but it will be a long time before I will use it in my practice. Since artefill has such an established safety record, it will be the long-term facial filler of choice. The only area on the face that I do not use artefill is the lips, and so aquamid might be a good choice there if it achieves fda approval. Remember that medical grade silicone (silikon 1000) is fda-approved for medical (not cosmetic) but it has a very long safety record for delicate and dependable use in the lips.
Not in the US. Aquamid has successfully completed safety and efficacy trials, but has not yet recieved fda approval.
