Sub-Q for cheek augmentation anyone?
Friend in UK mentioned this but she had to get off the phone before I could ask her. Anyone know what this is? I'm not sure if it's injected or....?

SubQ is a product by the makers or Restylane that is not yet FDA approved. It is designed for deeper tissue augmentation such as the cheeks and jaw line. Like Restylane, it is also a hyaluronic acid based filler. I cannot tell you how long it is expected to last.

Deep tissue huh? Is that bec it's thicker and harder? It must be because otherwise they would use it for lip injections too.

A subQ injection uses a small needle to inject small volumes of medicine in the tissues under the skin, and above the muscle. It is not FDA approved but it is being used widely because it gives good results
