I was actually going to buy Juvederm ultra online and inject it myself. A lot of women actually do this. What do you thik about?

i did it

Postby kala » Tue Jul 28, 2009 2:05 am

i self injected radiesse,, now i studied and studied and studied every source or radiesse injection techniques online and i still was hesitant,, my friend who works with a nurse couldn't get the nurse to inject it without me having purchased it from them,,even though it was sealed and the exact same stuff,, i understood,, but she did agree to mix the radiesse with lidocaine in the syringe,, which is the way they are doing it now,so no dental block is needed..it reduces swelling and bruising,, ok,so i did my nasiolabial folds,, i didn't need alot ,so i started doing my cheeks,, i had both of these areas done before... all in all,, i'm pleased... no bumps or lumps,, as radiesse is very moldable for the first day or two,and i smoooted and smoothed and smoothed... i'm not condoning anyone try this,i'm just saying it can be done.. i have had it injected 4 times before,so i knew exactly how it was done..

I strongly discourage any to self inject, just my personally opinion, we all have one, and most stink, huh, lol... ;-)

I too have had injections MANY times, and no way do I know exactly how it is done, I'll continue leave that the professionals hands to do mine...

My best to all,
Lisa

I self inject Dysport and love the results. I save so much money. I am thinking of doing Juvederm also. I'm glad you had good results.

But how far deep do you all know to go? Some go into the bone and some right under the skin, seems kinda scary no?

My suggestion for anyone thinking of self injecting is don't - leave it to the plastic surgeons. I had fillers in May this year and experienced nerve trauma. I had severe numbness for 3 months - upper lip, side of nose, cheek and under eye. If the experts can make mistakes, the novice may cause permanent damage to nerves. If it happens you will regret it!

I know self injection is chancey. I have done it once and it hurt a lot. For those of you who are proffesionals and do this type of thing for living....I feel pretty certain most of you are speaking out against people doing this, if the prices of having it done weren't so damn high we wouldn't be forced to this measure. If the prices were lowered enough for the average patient, those of us who have other bills and don't have 2000 or 3000 to spend and yet still want to look a little better better, make your prices fair!!

You hit the nail on the head! I wouldn't do this myself - way too scared! But knowing that people can get the product so cheaply, but have to pay the doctors so much to inject, makes self-injection tempting to a lot of people. My newest botox injector - my dermatologist - told me he thinks Botox is quite easy, and he injects himself. Maybe if I was trained, I'd give it a try, because, after all, it is temporary. But, this isn't a vital procedure. It's all about vanity anyway. I don't do it if money is tight.

I wouldn't recommend it. If the reason you're interested in doing self-injection is money perhaps you can go to a training program. I go to cosmetic medical training, it offeres all products at-cost (fillers, botox) and I'm getting injected my a nurse who is being trained but also closely watched and helped by a professional. I've never had a problem with them. It's worth the discounted price and safer than self-injections.

I have self injected Restylane between the brows, in smile lines on the sides of my cheeks, and a little around the lips. IT LOOKED GREAT! I use it sparingly and don't go too deep. I have had no problems......until now. Pharmacies in Canada used to sell it without a prescription, but not any more. I am so bummed that I can't get it anymore. I sure as heck cannot afford to have it done.

You can buy juvederm and other fillers at www.premiumpharmaceuticals.com without a prescription. I have self-injected juvederm 6 times and I like the results. I have injected between brows, nasobial folds and my lips. I live on Denmark and here injections done on clinics are even more expensive than in the US.

I know that you can get fillers online pretty easy but where can you get Botox/Dysport online without a perscription? I've seen it for sale online(no name Brand) but the country of origin is China....would prefer to stick with the name brands that I have already used if I can find them and they are affordable.....I realize most people suggest not to do this yourself....but many of us are going to do it anyhow since doing it yourself is so much more cost effective....I hope people will share their knowlege with a safe, reasonably priced outlet to buy Botox without a perscription. Thanks!
