A problem with a lip treatment with “spun blood” – ? Sephyl or another version of platelet rich plasma.

Too much of my own spun blood was used as a filler in my upper lip...can hyluronidase be used to reduce it.......

Ok………not trying to be difficult here but I really need the exact product name.   When you say “spun blood”, I’m assuming you’re referring to a product like Selphyl where your blood is taken and then the blood is spun in a centrifuge with the red blood cells then being removed.   This leaves the “plasma”  – the clearer portion which can then be injected.  This is sometimes referred to as PRP or platelet rich plasma.

Sadly, this cannot be reversed with hyaluronidase.   Please make sure you contact the doctor who injected this and let him or her know that you are having a problem.    Perhaps they have another idea?   More on filler problems. 

I appreciate you writing!    Please, PLEASE readers and friends………….don’t let anyone put anything except a hyaluronic acid product into your lips.   And even then, be careful with Voluma and products that are made by companies other than Juvederm, Restylane, Galderma or Merck.   These companies make products that are generally safe in the lips.

Hope this helps,  Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
