I can't find a satisfactory dr. (I've tried 2 different one) to do my collagen injections for the folds from my nose around my mouth.
I live in Vancouver BC. I've tried Dr. B from Arbutus Clinic and a nurse at The Laser Centre in Yaletown. They either overfill the lines or miss them altogether. No one yet compares to my retired dr. in LA! Any suggestions?

I am glad that I read your post today. I am VERY experienced with Artesense Facial Filler. I have received training by the Inventor Himself Dr. Gotfried Lemperle (a close friend and Plastic Surgeon Colleague). I totally agree that it mustbe done JUST RIGHT. I am actually only two hours away by car from LA, in Tijuana, BC Mexico. Costs are $600 per 0.7 cc syringe. Feel free to contact me for more information.

deep lines  September 30, 2009 7:19 PM

You need to be fully evaluated by a BOARD CERTIFIED PS. You are asuming that the filler will improve on the deep lines. After full evaluation all options are discussed with you. Deep lines may require a face lift, aor fat transfer or a combination. Find a good PS.

I've had the same issue. I went to a few clinics for filler job, but did not turn out right. I was referred to Dr. Choi in North Vancouver by my dentist who was a satisfied customer of Dr. Choi. He did an amazing job for my smile folds. No more folds! :) Cuz I am Asian, so I happened to have low nose. He recommended filler for my nose and really made it very pretty and tall. I am very happy about this work on me. Go try him out. He is on Lonsdale and 13th. His web is www.mcmedgroup.com Good luck, girl! ;)

First very hard to find collagen injectors because it is a old filler. Restylane, Juvederm, etc are the new kids on the block. As for injector ALWAYS use a M.D. But keep looking I'm sure you will find one.
