Esthelis

June 20, 2008
Dear Dr. Rivkin,
I am planning to get Esthelis injected for cheek augmentation. Is Esthelis a safe product? I read that it is completely biodegradable and non-permanent and consists only of hyaluronic acid.

My injector offers only Esthelis. I actually looked for Voluma or Restylane SubQ.

Do you have experience with Esthelis regarding patient satisfaction, longevity, easiness to administer? It would be great to get to know your opinion. There is a post from a lady who had it injected in the undereye area with not so gut results, but I couldn't find anything on cheeks.

I have some remainders of Voluma left (injected 1.5 years ago). Can I top up with Esthelis? What quantity would you recommend?

Thanks a lot in advance,


hi,
yes, that is what i've read as well.
i have never used it - i think it just got fda approval in the USA, but has not appeared on the market as of yet.
i can't tell you how long it will last - they claim 9 months, but who really knows?
i like radiesse for the cheeks and it works very well. it goes deep, which is really important for cheeks and it lasts about a year or so.
my question is how can a good injector only offer one product?
you should be getting many options, not a requirement to get one product.
