Please note that Teyosal is NOT FDA approved for use in the USA. Therefore anyone injecting it in the USA is using an unapproved product. Likely illegally imported you have no way of confirming what was used. It is unethical to do this to patients.

It almost sounds like you had an allergic reaction, which can happen.  What did your doctor think happened?

i had just started using a new LOREALcollagen face cream and he thinks its had interaction with filler

Huh.  That seems a little odd.  What do you think?

i don't think its the cream personally i think its something to do with Teosyl filler not much good, puffiness if gone but i still have a lots of big lumps more on oneside than the other but i just have to wait for filler to fade naturally he said :( i think i look odd

Yeah I'm no expert but I can't imagine your face cream would have anything to do with it.  Have you considered getting a second opinion?

i would like to but don't really know how to go about it, without having to pay for consultations.ive had two attempts of hyalurondaise to dissolve(free of charge) and he said that's all hes prepared to do and two wait it out and let the filler fade naturally but after a month of all this happening im still heavy looking around the mouth and my face looks long il send you a picture in private message you can tell me what you think if that's ok would you mind

If I were you I'd ask other community members how they went about seeing a different doctor.  If I see any threads about it on the site I'll take note.  You can also ask the doctors in our Q&A about it and see what they say. 

You are always welcome to send me a PM :)

Oh my gosh, you are still puffy after two months?  Do you think he injected too much?
