Hello there,

Except Collagen, there are a lot newer acid fillers such Perlane, Hylaform or Restylane which are very spread on the US market now. These temporary soft tissue fillers have great and quick plumping effect. Here are some fillers that could last from 1 month to 5 years, but talking from others experience with injectable fillers they last from up to 4 months at most.

Most of the fillers listed below are proved and are totally safe. However, this is not my recommendation, this is only the list of many different products. To use or try any of this collagen fillers please consult your surgeon for more info. To use any of this products below you should be exam by a specialist and should perform allergy test. Most of these products needs allergy test. A friend of mine did it few times and she prefers non-animal hyaluronic acid products over collagen products.

Thanx very much.. I was wondering if u know if any of these are available in UK?? And is there a needle which I can buy and inject my lips with it myself?? I just need something simple... Thanx and I appreciate it :D



Yes, almost all of them are available in the UK, but don't even think about it to do it by yourself. I think none of those fillers are created for self use. I never heard that someone used fillers without experts help. Therefore I suggest you to inform you more about use of those fillers. The best way to find it out is to talk to experts (cosmetic surgeons or pharmacists). Take an appointment just to collect more info. That’s how we do it all :-)

Take care!



All right, thanx 4 everything!! appreciate it :-)
