Common Questions and Answers about Lip collagen products


Avatar m tn Additionally it is made of natural collagen derived from fish skins, and hypoallergenic so many people with skin problems or allergic to products can use the collagen lip gloss. http://collagen.
Avatar n tn I've had the same problems too! I'd been using pretty much anything and everything from when I was in my early teens until I was a senior in high school. My everyday balm was Burt's Bees though and I had been using that for about 2-3 years. In addition to that I used Chapstik, Nars, Clinique, SoftLips, Revlon...pretty much every brand. Then all of a sudden, my lips started swelling and got plumper and redder each day for about a week.
Avatar n tn I'm interested in having lip augmentation. My question is: Is there a suitable injection that can be done on my lips that is not permanent so that I can "test the waters" before having the augmentation? I have orthodontic surgery at age 30, wearing braces for 5 years. My teeth look great. But now I have no upper lip and what I do have looks like I've been a smoker. I have lots of lines. I've tried over the counter products with no success.
Avatar n tn When i was like, 4-5 a dog bit me on the lip and kinda ripped it a little and left a scar. It looks like a bump on my lip and then theres a little line right above my lip from it. i really want it to go away! Im 14 now and it still hasnt gone away. Everytime i meet somebody new, they ask about it and its really embarassing. PLEASEE HELP!
Avatar n tn I was mountain biking, took a wicked spill and cut my upper lip. 3.5 hours later, I had it stitched up. It has been 6 days since my spill and I just had the 3 stitches removed. It is starting to scab lightly and itch. The cut starts right at the border of my lip and is the widest at this point. The cut goes in a diagonal upwards from there. The stitching was done well and it closed up pretty good. Since it is on my upper lip, it is tricky.
Avatar n tn Nonetheless, make-up, OTC cosmetic products, as well as procedures such as microdermabrasion as well as collagen products usage may be beneficial in your case and given under supervision may be very beneficial. You may also need to get treatment for the cold sores that you have presently. hope this helped. let me know if you may need more information.
Avatar n tn The first few days, when I moved them, lines would appear and they looked like they lost shape a bit on the top lip. They look better now, and lines went away, but they're still not the same as they were before. Do you think I have I lost some collagen or elasticity? Could that happen to someone my age? (I'm 18.) I know it sounds funny that I think it might have been what I did, but they were fine before I did that.
Avatar f tn I had metacril injections two weeks ago in Costa Rica to my lips and nasalabial folds. The metacril in the bottom lip has now turned into hard bumps, which I think was the result of going and having my teeth whitened afterwards and the Zoom laser hitting that area so long. Has anyone else had experience with metacril? Any recommended plastic surgeons in the Dallas area I can go to and follow up with this issue? Thanks!
Avatar n tn I've had this happen, and am somewhat confused by what causes it. I'm thinking I've become sensitive to certain products (lip gloss, sunscreen. other face creams). My lips look like I got collagen shots, except they are red and splotchy and itch, so it isn't a good look. I started using a gentle facial cleanser and avoid getting any type of product near my lips. All sorts of things are possible for side effects.
Avatar n tn I have tried all of the scar products on the market -but realize that they are largely for keloid type scars. I hate this scar! It casts a shadow and is very noticeable to me. What are my alternatives and can you give me an idea on price? My dentist made comments about injectables to plump up the area -but he is not an onvious expert and I fear having a bump replace the dent. Thanks much for your time.
Avatar f tn L-glutamine, MSM, and collagen, plus liquid ingestible probiotics.  I'm taking these things on an empty stomach.  I'm also fighting from the outside by using sprayable probiotics that I mist on to the affected areas of my skin. Anti-bacterial/anti-microbial products cannot be used while doing this, because doing so would counterproductively kill the probiotics. So far, after about a week, I've seen noticeable improvements in all areas that are affected.
Avatar f tn There is a short vertical line on one side of my upper lip extending right down to the lip. I also have one pock mark under my nose. The skin texture looks dry and parched with many fine lines that don't extend all the way down to my lip. All of this is on the area that was worked on where the skin is also pigmented. The moisturizer, as you suggested, stops the itchyness.
Avatar f tn About days later i woke up with my swollen lip. I was told to take Benedryl. I remember back in 2005 having somewhat of an occurence with what i now know was pressure hives. I was also dealing with alot of stress then from a relationship I had been through. I was wearing a boot that zipped up. I noticed that this boot where ther zipper was, made a blister and a itchy rizen. i was told by pharmacy then to take benedryl then. It went away and i never saw those symptoms again.
Avatar n tn To treat chicken pox scars skin specialists first reduce underlying fibrous adhesions and later either perform a dermal filler or stimulate new collagen growth with Non Ablative Laser Rejuvenation. It will be difficult to recommend a particular treatment to you but there are many options and medicinal products available. The best would be to talk to your doctor and then decide which treatment works best.
Avatar m tn Prior research indicates that it has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-tumor properties. Hepatic stellate cells produce extracellular matrix proteins such as collagen that are responsible for liver fibrosis.
Avatar n tn our daily requirement is only few microgram and the food supply (the typical american food, meat or dairy products) 10 to 20 times what we need. and the liver store last us for up to 3-4 years....unless you have what is called the DIET COBALAMIN (B12)MALABSORPTION especially your level picked up fast on the low oral dose " Serum labs negative "?
Avatar n tn Both BP and PG are used in food and tons of beauty/cosmetic products. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? I'm pretty sure mine are swollen tonight b/c of a blemish cream (pharmacist said it was PG free) I used a couple days ago for a break out (or rash?) on my forehead and neck that accompanied my last flare-up a couple weeks ago. So, that means that PG was in the product under a different name OR it's benzoyl peroxide, right?
Avatar f tn however, multiple plaques are relatively common. Usually localized on the chin, cheeks, or neck, involvement of the upper lip is rare. The characteristic lesion is an inflammatory reddish nodule with pustules and draining sinuses on the surface. Hairs are loose or broken, and depilation is easy and painless. Pus-filled whitish masses involve the hair root and follicle. Over time, the surface of the indurated nodule is covered by exudate and crust.
Avatar n tn It has spread since the initial very sore red lump on the upper chin under my lip. This cleared after months and now is in three spots of the chin that are painful and hard to hide. I describe it as `tiny shards of glass`. Using a mirror outside in the sun once to look at them I literally saw a prism-like spectrum of colors on a tiny piece of this whatever it is.
Avatar n tn I hadn't worn any make-up or used any products on or near my eyes at all on Sunday, so I'm confused as to what caused it to return. On Monday and Tuesday, several people commented on the state of my eyes, especially the right one, which seemed to be in a worse condition. My eyelids were dry and painful to touch, especially in the corner and it was continuously weeping, until yesterday afternoon when it seemed to heal up to the point where it looked sore, but no longer felt it.
Avatar n tn And I had an allergy test (machine tested me on 3000 products). I was told that I was allergic to lanolin (sheep wool fat),dust, basil and squid. I was also told that my boots sensitive mascara did not agree with me. I am not aware of ever having used lanolin. I stopped wearing eye make up and only used vaseline around the eyes. Approx. 2 months later it suddenly vanished, not sure how? I had put up with the problem for 11 months, gradually becoming worse.
Avatar f tn It is essential to rule out the presence of serious illnesses of which recurring hives can be a symptom. Examples are hepatitis, hyperthyroidism, lymphomas, collagen vascular diseases, and cancers of the rectum, kidneys and gastrointestinal tract. I feel that you should find out the cause of your chronic urticaria by ruling out the various conditions causing it.Pls consult a physician/dermatologist for this. I hope it helps.
Avatar n tn Sorry to hear your suffering as well. You just struck something with the menopausal age and hormones though and I'm wondering if this could be part of my problem. When I was younger I was on every type of birth control possible and was unable to be on any of the pills, my hormones fluctuated so much and I suffered from severe migraines, and all made me physically ill with what I could only describe as morning sickness, without being pregnant.
Avatar m tn I have spent a fortune trying to get these things gone, I have tried their products tho...didn't work any better than pouring peroxide or vinegar on your skin!!! Waste of money!!! It just bugs me bc, they only want money from people who are suffering from parasites and that's WRONG! Anyways, I use seasalt mixed into a sulfur cleanser...Shampoo I add treetea oil, peoxide works the best, but it has been HORRIBLE to my lightens and just plains ruins it!
Avatar n tn While all the articles I read discuss anti-histamines as the primary form of treatment, there is debate over the use of both H1 products like Zyrtec, Claritine, and similar products along with H2 products which are normally associated with Heart Burn. They are Zantac, Tagamet, and Pepcid. However, there appears not to be a consensus of the joint H1 and H2 treatment showing definitive results. Either way, it is food for thought to discuss with your doctor.
Avatar n tn I have been suffering these sypmtoms over the last 4 months, tight neck, tingling in face, spaced out, almost robotic movement all over, very stange pressures in synus area and tingling around my top lip. I was diagnosed with a hyperactive thyroid 6 months ago which is under controle know with medication. My Doctor says I am suffering anxiety, after such a stressfull last 6 months. This all ties in with what you guys have said.
