Changing lip filler brands?

 Hi, I have performed many lip augmentation procedures using dermal fillers or lip implants for over 30 years.  Following the beauty principles outlined in my book on face and body beauty, the upper lip should be approximately 75 % the size of the lower lip for the lips to appear balanced. The lips can be augmented using a dermal filler or a Permalip implant for a permanent enhancement.  Different types of dermal fillers can be used without any issue. 

 Dermal filers and lip implants offer far more reliable volume to augment the lips than permanent fillers or fat injections that are also associated with increased, unwanted, side effects.

Hope this helps.

Changing lip filler brands?

Thank you for sharing your question.  It is safe to use Juvederm on top of your Teosyal and as they are a similar compound they will not interact.  Hope this helps.

Using 2 different lip fillers

Thank you for your question. Both are HA fillers so there is no contraindication to use another type of HA. Be sure to let your injector know you previously had filler so they are aware.

Changing Lip Fillers/Teosyal/Juvederm--Lip Augmentation with Fillers (Restylane, Juvederm) or Lip Implant or Fat

These are both HA fillers and you should be fine with the change. If you're unhappy with the results of fillers, lip implants and fat can be used for a more permanent result. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer

Combining Teasyal and Juvederm

These are both HA fillers and there is absolutely nothing to worry about to have these both in the lips at the same time. I don't know of any filler that reacts with another one as a matter of fact.

Teosyal and Juvederm

Teosyal is a Swiss brand of hyaluronic acid and although it's not available in the US to my knowledge and I haven't used it, mixing different types of fillers (especially both hylauronics) is generally safe.  Be certain that your injector is aware so he/she can further research the subject.  FYI most hyaluronics last for about 8-9 months.

Teosyal + Juvederm

I am unfamiliar with Teosyal, but I see that it is unavailable in the US. In general, with all fillers in the US, it is safe to "layer" them without risk of reaction. I would recommend calling your provider and asking them or even perhaps calling the manufacturer direct and inquiring.
