Self injection of restylane to save money?
My doctor in Beverly Hills charges $595 for regular Juvederm and $695 for Juvederm Ultra Plus. I am only talking about medical professionals that are trained and licensed to use these injectables on ourselves because that is allowed by the law for us. I am NOT talking about regular people doing it.

NOTE BY ADMIN: Although this thread clearly states it is a discussion for medical professionals only (only for the ones whom are legally allowed to self-inject) it has been closed by the administrator due to potential confusion from the thread's title.

:D lol! what's next we will start giving ourselves nosejobs and boobjobs too?

Bottom line is I agree with all the posters above me -- doing so by a regular person is illegal and no one should try it.

Please re-read my original post. I am in no way advocating self-injection. I wrote that piece as an informative post only. Just as the news may report a bombing, doesn't mean they are supporting you to go out and do it. My story above should be interpreted no differently.

Injecting the fillers yourself is a VERY risky job.
It is meant to be done by the professionals.
If done improperly, it can ruin your skin.
I also agree that surgeons charge too much for this, but we have no other option. And I think that guy who injected Juvederm himself had these injections before from a trained surgeon. That's why he was able to get good results without much experience.

I again advice that you people should not try this yourself, you should go to the professionals.

Do it yourself lip injections?
After seeing a thread on the plastic surgery message board on here about injectables, I'm just curious if any doctors or nurses have ever attempted do it yourself lip injections? I am in NO WAY advocating or recommending someone do that. But I just know there are people out there that have probably attempted or thinking about attempting it.

Injections of the lips hurt like hell and I cant imagine doing it by yourself. A lot of people cry when they get injected because it hurts that much in this area. Your lips are so sensitive.

Hotfloridabunny in my opinion, you are very brave. I say this after all of the horror stories I have seen, heard of, and read about. I would never administer my own surgery. My appearance is very important to me and I would not want any complications. Good luck to you brave girl!!! :D

alexjoan's post lacks insight and is a mere advertisment. Bringing back an old thread for advertisement purposes.
