Plump Your Pout with CYMETRA?

Looks like a micronized, injectible form of Alloderm sheets...doesn't last as long because it is already broken down but have you seen it in patients or used it? What's the real scoop on the look/feel/longevity? Very little info on the web...

Cymetra is not a popular option for the lips

+1

Cymetra is not currently a popular option for lip enhancement and probably never will be.  Cymetra is not new to the market and was used widely in the past for other injections such as vocal fold augmentation.  Juvederm and other hyaluronic acid fillers are now more commonly used.

Juvederm or Perlane fine, but watch for the BEST, Aquamid

+1

In agreement with some other docs, although I've never used Cymetra, have used Alloderm in the lips, injected thousands with Juvederm Ultra Plus and Perlane, which are both fabulous, although temporary.  Watch for Aquamid, a product from Denmark currently in front of the FDA for approval.  It is 97.5% water, 2.5% polyacrylamide hydrogel.  It is soft, natural, non-reactive, and permanent.  This product is the best I've seen or used in the lips, by far, and it LASTS.  Now available outside the U.S.

Cymetra for lips

+1

Cymetra is currently not the best filler on the market for lips.  It's consistency makes for difficult injection, it is an opaque material, and it may feel irregular in the lips.  Lastly, its longevity makes it an inferior product for the lips when compared to Restylane, Perlane, or Juvederm.
