self injecting

Postby jolievon » Sun Jun 21, 2009 7:53 pm

ok so I was looking into restylane for my lips and started doing some research on what exactly restylane is and I found that it is basically hyaluronic acid. Which is a substance naturally found in the body which is why you don't have to worry about an allergic reaction when you get the injections. This is also why they don't last forever the body just reabsorbs it. Ok so here is the crazy part! I was actually going to buy restylane online and inject it myself. A lot of women actually do this. Then I got to thinking why can't I just buy hyaluronic acid that they sell at any supplement store and inject that. Lol I know this sounds crazy and I probably won't do it I just want to know if people think it would work. I busted open a cap of HA and mixed it with saline. It turned into a gel like substance. What I think will probably happen is I will inject it and the results will only last a few hours before my body absorbs it. I know a lot of Dr's will inject clients with saline to show them what their lips would look like and within a few hours the plumping goes away. What do you guys think?

I would rather pay the money to have a trained doctor do it. There are so many things that you can do wrong...like make your lips lumpy by injecting it in the wrong places...you could inject it into the wrong level of tissue...its going to hurt really bad...your mixture could be way off.

I am sorry...but honestly...my lips are part of my face...and I am not messing with that...I don't want to look like a freak.

Here's an article about a woman disfiguring herself via self injection:

In this case (and there are others) it was silicone lubricant. But if you self inject, just be ready for 'suprises'.

I am in the medical profession so please take this advice. Don't do that. You may cause permanent scarring, infection or long term bruising. That sounds like a very risky thing to do. You may have allergic reactions. Just because the product contains restalyne does not make it sterile or medical grade. Just don't!!!

If you were going to self inject. You would want to at least order from a real pharmacy. Use needles for a subcutaneus injection. I still would not recommend it with out medical training though. Just to many things could go wrong.

Oh lawd!

You are one brave women! Just reading about self-injecting the lips made me break out into a sweat! I can handle needles anywhere (except the nose and lips) and can't even give myself my B12 injections. LOL

I think it's a bit chancy but if you do it get it from the pharmacy if you can. Can you handle the needle going in your lip? Sweat again! LOL I'm going for restalyne again in December. Must psych myself up to do so. The results are worth it!

If you go through with it, please update. I'm curious as to how it goes! :)
