I (Dutch male, 51) have a scar through my eyebrow from a car accident when i was 19 (pre airbag), the clinic filled the scar up in two sessions 11 years ago. The results were immediate and pretty good. Compared to botox or hyaluronic acid like juvederm the injections were very painful, i guess... READ MORE

I had Aquamid injected into both cheeks in March,2010 to help with the sallow, hollow face look. For a few years the result was good, although the 'permanent' product does drop with aging. In May 2014 the whole left side of me face became very swollen, painful & full of fluid. I had many... READ MORE

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

I had 1 ml of aquamid in each cheek at the Arc Clinic in Bali. I have been told that if there were to be any problems they would happen within the first 6 months.I have been happy with the results, so far so good...but am a bit concerned that problems might occur in a few years time. There seems... READ MORE

I got injected a small amount of Aquamid in my lips. This was done in Norway by Lars Haasted, Christiania park klinikk. I got no information about the severe side effects, and he still doesnt inform patiens about them, and he offers no kind of help when we get problems. I got big lumps and... READ MORE

I had decided to treat myself to permanent lip fillers for my birthday. The doctor also injected the corner of my lips. My lips began to swell. The doctor told me that it was normal. 3 days later, they were so sore, swallen and bloody, that duck lips look small in comparison, at this stage the... READ MORE

Yes, I am happy with it and have had no major side effects. Obviously, you MUST have it professionally done as mine has lasted for 10 years. BUT, the only down side is that my lips are now fuller and a little less flexible - I used to be a very good amateur flautist and can not now flex my... READ MORE

I had aquamid inserted on my both cheeks. Around 2011. It was a disaster because I had too much inserted. I had it removed by Vader liposuction by a doctor in Thailand. I had the procedure done three times only because I was injected 7ccs. IM now looking very good. I have about 30percent of... READ MORE

Hello everyone, I had been injected with aquamid about 5 years in upper and lower lips. after the fifth years I had granuloma in lips and swelling above my upper lip and my upper looses its shape. I saw several surgeon and one, a very good who had the experience of to remove permanent fillers... READ MORE

In 2001 or 2002 I decided to fill my lips a little bit. I was referred to a reputable doctor; Dr Bachelier. I was then living France, and that's where he practices. I do not remember the name of the original product but he injected something that was supposed to last about a year. I was very... READ MORE

At first I thought Aquamid was great. It was long lasting. Until I wanted more. I was advised not to get anymore aquamid by the Doctor and instead he injected another semi permanent filler over the top of it. This was a disaster. I spent months walking around looking like a duck. The Doctor... READ MORE

I had Aquamid injected in my lips in 2003 by Dr Robert Reed in Adelaide Australia. For the first four years I had no problems, just sometimes if I knocked my lips they seemed painful and I felt that my lips felt harder than I would have liked but aesthetically I wasn't too worried. After... READ MORE

I had aquamid injected in my naso labial folds four years ago, just 1ml. Everything was fine for four years, the product looked natural although it would sometimes harden. I have no immune problems, I'm fit and healthy, but six months ago the aquamid started to become inflamed on the... READ MORE

I had Aquamid injections in my cheeks every six months over a two year period . My dermatologist uses a dental block, and some local, so the whole experience is pain free. I have never had any adverse reaction or infection. After the procedure I don't touch the area or wear make up or shower for... READ MORE

I had a very small amount to my nose from a doctor near oxford street, sydney (dr hkeik) - he was VERY sterile (e.g. sterile gloves / didn't touch my nose at all etc.) - I haven't had any adverse reactions at all. I made sure I didn't touch or wash my nose for a week and put some... READ MORE

I have had aquamid in the lips and for cheek augmentation- Personally i wouldn't waste my time with semi-permanent fillers it ends up costing a fortune and the results just don't last. Aquamid is used less and less here in Australia. I have been lucky and had no adverse reactions at any... READ MORE

I had Aquamid injected into my lips and wrinkles around my mouth. After a couple of months, there was still no difference. It just looked the same as before so I made another follow up appointment and paid full price again. This was done over a week ago and again there is no difference... READ MORE

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.
