The last two hyaluronic acid injections to my lips started to disappear at the end of 1st month.. It already looks like baseline. I always check the label of the product used fto make sure its from the riight company. Why is this happening? My doctor keeps the injector for a month but when I asked 2 days ago if he can top up due to what is happening, he said it has been a week longer than a month therefore he can not? Does a week make a difference? Thanks in advance for your advice... Alex
Would Juvederm loose its effect in subsequent injections?

Topping off Juvederm
Alex, are you saying that the doctor uses part of syringe and then throws rest away? I do use occasionally have a bit left over and will save for a few weeks. However, If I have a patient that will not need a full syringe(like lips only) , I will open a smaller syringe and charge them only for that. Then, If they need more I can open another small unit and not worry about waste or storage. If you were not happy with Juvederm you might give Restylane a try. That product comes in smaller packages if that is what you need. Also, some doctors divide their own syringes and you pay for only what you needed.
