Aquamid is GREAT! Find a Good Doctor - Oceanside, CA

I scheduled an appointment in Tijuana mexico with Dr. Q of Cosmed clinic. I live in San Diego, California and we can not get aquamid in the states because of FDA regulations. The doctor was more than professional, so I went ahead and did 1cc of aquamid on my right nasal fold.(Nose to mouth lines) just to see if it was as good as they made it sound. It has been 8 years since and that side of my face is still perfect! I want to go do the other side, but never have had any extra money... I would recommend Aquamid to anybody. No side affects, no pain really. For a minute its torture, then its over! Better than restalyne and collagen and all others I think :-)

The doctor is the same if not better than any doctor I have seen in the United States! PERIOD The office is technologically equal to those in the U.S. as well. Very professional and lovely setting. Wait times are usually under 20 minutes without an appointment! Lovely...

I have talked to Dr. Quiroz, and even went to Dr. Fuentes, (a partner to Dr. Quiroz.) to have him help me take out the Aquamid as he was someone that was familar with taking it out. He used a lipo needle and a syringe to try to suck it out. (I like the idea about using the vacuum mentioned in another post.) He was only able to get a tiny bit out for the 30 minute appointment. His cost for that appointment was similar to a PS doctor in the US. The other services they offer there seem to be less expensive like botox, etc. I do not live in CA so it is not easy to continually return for numerous efforts to get little out. I did like Dr. Fuentes, he was good to answer emails, and came across as very knowledgable and professional. The experience was depressing only because I was hoping for better results.

Hi diniss, 

Thanks for the review. I'm glad you had such a positive experience with the procedure. You said it was a minute of torture, but said no pain, why was there torture? We would love to see pictures. Please keep us updated.

Thanks,

-Britt

The torture is during the injections. It wasn't that painful, But it is torture. It's just strange having something injected in your face. It feels like hell. But for the little two minutes of pain...I've had years and years of beautiful results. And I went back and had them do the other side of my face recently. Dr Quiroz was not in and another Doc did it. Cant remember maybe Campos? Don't know the Doc's name but The results are not as nice this time. My laugh line is not all the way gone. Kinda sucks, but I'm gonna go in and get 1cc of Aquamid again. Half in my laugh line, and half in my nose. (It is being used for mini nose jobs)Then for 7-10 more years I won't need anything else! I cant wait...

Your from Oceanside Ca. I'm from San Diego Ca. and I am afraid to go into Mexico but I hae done so in the past for the Bio Aclmed (?) which I loved!!! It has been seeral years since I had that proceedure done and really want to save up for something again. I prefer to do something that has a lasting value since money is scarce and I don't like to waste it on temporary fixes. I was wondering if maybe we can hook up in the future and go down together for safety reasons. I would like a compadre in this and your close and familliar with tijuana and your doctor besides that you trust them/him if your interested or agreeable it would take a little time to put the money together but I'm deffinately interested and would like to accompany you the next time you go down there maybe we could make compatible appointments and do this thing and perhaps even make friends, that would be great having a co conspirator in the hidden beauty secret agenda. Please contact me here I am not always on this site but will try to visit every so often to see if you hae sent me a response. Thank You! It's great to see someone willing to take a chance on something different and seeking out cost effective remedies to problematic occurances such as wrinkles etc. Take care and god bless!!!
