Buy Hyaluronic Acid Filler

Because it has lots of space for other molecules to latch on, hyaluronic acid is great for transporting other molecules throughout your body. It also has the ability to attach itself to cells, which is why targeted delivery of medications using hyaluronic acid is a major topic of study.

Prescription hyaluronic acid products should be taken exactly as instructed by your healthcare provider. Injections of any kind containing hyaluronic acid should only be given by a licensed, qualified medical professional.

Injecting dermal fillers into the face and hands can improve the appearance of facial lines and volume loss caused by age or certain medical conditions. In studies of dermal fillers approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, people generally report they are satisfied with their treatment results.

However, dermal fillers are not for everyone. Dermal fillers may not be appropriate for people with certain conditions, such as bleeding disorders or some allergies. If your health care provider confirms that dermal fillers are an option for you, know that all medical products have benefits and risks. The FDA advises you work with a licensed health care provider who is experienced in injecting dermal fillers, knowledgeable about fillers, anatomy, managing complications, and most importantly, tells you about the risks and benefits before receiving treatment.

Dermal fillers are gel-like substances injected under the skin. Dermal fillers are meant to create a smoother or fuller appearance, or both. The FDA regulates dermal fillers as medical devices. As reported in clinical trials, the effects of most FDA-approved dermal fillers are temporary because they are made from materials that the body eventually breaks down and absorbs. The injection procedure may have to be repeated to maintain the desired effect.

As with any medical procedure, there are risks involved with the use of dermal fillers. Most side effects reported in clinical trials and post-market surveillance occur shortly after injection and go away within a few weeks. In some cases, side effects may emerge weeks, months, or years later.

Unintended injection into blood vesselsThe most serious risk associated with dermal fillers is accidental injection into a blood vessel. Filler that enters a blood vessel can cause skin necrosis (death of tissue), stroke, or blindness. While the chances of this happening are low, if it does happen, the resulting complications can be serious and may be permanent.

Removing Dermal FillersIf you want to have fillers removed or reduced because of side effects, you may need additional procedures to reduce the filler or surgery to remove it. These procedures carry their own risks. Be aware that it may be difficult or impossible to remove some filler materials.

If you have experienced a problem with a dermal filler product or other product regulated by the FDA, you can voluntarily report it to MedWatch, the FDA safety information and adverse event reporting program.

The injection of hyaluronic acid fillers is hands down the most sought-after cosmetic procedure among all ages and genders, which makes it an essential skill for any skin aesthetics practitioner. If you are looking to add it to your list of services or just want to restock your supplies, check out the wide choice of high-quality hyaluronic fillers at MedicalSpaRX.

While hyaluronic acid fillers are safe for use, there might still be side effects that your patients should be aware of before agreeing to the procedure. The common side effects mostly include minor reactions at the injection site, such as:

It seems a growing number of people are skipping the doctor's office and taking this less expensive, though much more dangerous, route to getting facial fillers. "The trend of people purchasing injectable products online and self-injecting is not new, but it is rising," says Nancy Samolitis, a board-certified dermatologist in West Hollywood, California. The availability of counterfeit fillers for purchase online, paired with social media video tutorials that make it look easy to inject them yourself, has become a very worrisome combination for consumers.

"I recently saw a young man who purchased a filler over the internet and attempted to inject his undereye area," says Thomas Adrian, a dermatologist in Washington, D.C. "Needless to say, he came to me concerned that his filler was very uneven and lumpy, and he was also having some sort of allergic reaction to whatever was injected."

"I've had a patient come to see me for bumps in the lips from filler done by her friend who performs these services out of her basement," says board-certified dermatologist Mariana Atanasovski. "I performed repeated injections of the antidote to reverse the type of filler that was supposedly used, with no success in dissolving it. I suspected silicone was injected."

Where are people buying these fillers, and where are the fillers coming from? All it takes is a Google search to see how quick, easy, and relatively inexpensive it is to buy filler for yourself. Bhanusali recalls listings he saw for counterfeit fillers on Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba, though recently he has seen more and more become available for purchase on everyone's favorite online marketplace, Amazon. Both Alibaba and Amazon maintain strict counterfeit policies, but one search yields plenty of hits.

"I received multiple phone calls from prospective patients in the last [few] weeks who purchased a filler injection online," says Danny C. Del Campo, a board-certified dermatologist in Chicago. "Where did they purchase it? They purchased it from Amazon: No license, no medical degree, and with two-day delivery."

With a product description page, positive reviews, one-click buying, and sometimes even free shipping, you can see how it might be tempting to add one of these items to your cart. Some injectables might even feature familiar brand names that are used in doctor's offices, such as Juvéderm or Restylane. There are also no-name generic fillers, listed under something like "hyaluronic acid filler," which can be bought for under $100 on Amazon, says Mathew Elias, a board-certified dermatologist in Florida. But where are they coming from?

Fortunately, between the time I started working on this article and the publish date, two of the suspicious product links that I was sent by dermatologists have been removed from Amazon; all dermal fillers, and counterfeit products, in general, are prohibited by Amazon entirely. I reached out to Amazon for comment, and a spokesperson for the company sent the following statement: "All selling partners must follow our selling guidelines and those who do not will be subject to action, including withholding of funds and potential removal of their account. The products in question are no longer available." Allure also reached out to Alibaba for comment but did not hear back before time of publication.

One of the biggest risks of purchasing illegally available fillers is that you can never know exactly what you're going to get. Even if the package claims that the filler inside is made of hyaluronic acid, without the FDA's stamp of approval, anything could be in that package, including but not limited to adulterated ingredients (like silicone, which has to be surgically removed), unsterile ingredients that can cause an allergic reaction or severe infection, which then can lead to loss of tissue and scarring, explains Samolitis.

When something goes wrong with doctor-injected dermal filler, such as blocked vessels or even just dissatisfaction with the resulting appearance, dermatologists inject an enzyme called hyaluronidase to dissolve hyaluronic acid. This is one way they can tell whether or not a filler contains what it says it does. "We are now using it more and more to dissolve over-filling by unqualified injectors," Bhanusali explains. "It only works with hyaluronic acid, so when we see things like silicone or other foreign materials, our options [to dissolve them] are slim to none."

"Now, we can actually watch fillers being injected on Instagram, YouTube, etc., and that may give one a false sense of security because it looks so 'easy,'" says Ritu Saini, a board-certified dermatologist based in New York City. "The potential complications can be catastrophic."

Unfortunately, experts aren't seeing any signs of illegal filler purchases slowing down; they're seeing the opposite. "My guess is that some of these sites don't even know people are selling these products," Bhanusali says. Hopefully, increased awareness of this situation will lead online retailers to step up their game and better monitor the availability of illegal products on their sites. But often the reality is that when one listing gets taken down, another has already popped up in its place.

The good news is that the companies that manufacture dermal fillers, as well as Amazon, are fully aware that this is happening and, we're told, are dedicating resources to more closely monitor the situation.

"Online illegal fillers will likely just get less expensive and become more widely available," says Darren Smith, a board-certified plastic surgeon in New York City. "The key to stopping this practice is patient education." That means you, dear reader.

So, one day I was browsing my Facebook and social media feed and I came across an ad about a Hyaluron Pen. Hmmm. I have had fillers before (Botox and lip dermal fillers injections), so of course, this ad was EXTREMELY interesting to me. I love all things that have to do with beauty, so this was certainly down my alley!

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in human tissue that helps to retain moisture within our skin. It also has anti-inflammatory properties which can help reduce redness or swelling around your lips. The HA gel used for this procedure works by filling up any gaps between your facial tissues and creating an even smoother surface on your face.

Of course, ALWAYS buy the Hyaluronic Acid from a trusted dealer and do your own research. The hyaluronic pen I bought only came with the EMPTY ampoule heads (you fill these with the hyaluronic acid that you buy), and a user manual. 041b061a72
