Self Injecting Aquamid

I ordered Aquamid from an online source. Foolishly I only thought of it as more long lasting than the 3 to 6 months other choices. I had no idea it will last 10 years or longer. Plus I did not inject the product right as I injected just barely under my top layer of skin or lip skin.... READ MORE
