Dangers of Using Silicone Oil As Facial Filler?
I keep getting different information about the use of PMS/Silicone Oil as a facial filler. Is modern use of it really that dangerous? I would like to know once and for all, because I have a small amount of volume-loss in my face. I am still under 30, so I understand why I was advised to use a filler like Restylane. I have had those fillers a couple of times and within the first few weeks I am very happy with the results. However, these fillers dissolve so fast, so I've been looking for something a little more permament.
I am aware of the dangers of using permanent fillers such as Bio-Alcamid (they are thinking of forbidding the use of it in Europe too). Yet, when I read about PMS/ Silicone oil, I read so many different stories that I do not know what to believe. Is there a way that it can be safely used? And how big are the risks with modern PMS/Silicone use?
