Experiences with face fillers etc

I imagine this is to the ladies and don't be mean, please.  I went through Interferon for a year, horrible problems after the transplant causing me to need massive drugs for weeks, a rejection (physician error....Grrrr) needing 30 more days of massive drugs and my face and hair show it.  I said all that to remove some judgement. It aged me too much and I would like to fix some of it, if it is safe. Anyone had Voluminous, Sculptra, microneeddling, etc.  I had one peel done and it went perfectly. My doctor said ok to one of them...not sure which but I am aware guys, that our immune system is down so any cut or abrasion must be watched all the more.  I only want experiences though, not a slap on the wrist please?  Would be nice to have my old face back, ya know?

  • My husband had aged and more so because he lost a lot of weight. We are so great full that he is alive after what he went through that this do not matter to us. But as a women I can think that it will matter to you. 

  • Hi Barb

    I would keep your face out of the sun.  How you feel on the inside is projected greatly on the outside!

    no I never had nor will I have any work done. I believe facial exercises work wonders.

  • I totally agree!  Can't wait to hear some answers and suggestions.  I am so happy with my transplant, but in 3 years I have aged at least 10.

    • Thanks so much for not blasting me and thank you Bettylou for understanding my feelings. Profile pictures embarrass me as I had perfectly tight and flawless skin all my life. Yes I am older but I would like my ten extra years I see, off my face. I don't want to be flawless, just reasonable.
