Face Wasting/Needs Repair
Aug 12, 2003

I've been HIV positive since about 1989. I've been on every medication known to man and although I went through a rough time from '97 to '01 (had both hips replaced + had some other problems), am on the upswing now that there are better medications on the market. I have gone through wasting syndeome and am on resitance training program to gain muscle mass. My question is about my face. No matter how much I work out (I exclude most cardio) my face stays permanently wasted.) I have tried numerous injection treatments of New-Fill, but is is expensive, is not permanent, and stiol doesn't make my face look like I have not gone through some major illness or health problem. What do you suggest to rectify the face problem? I am somewhat desparate to find a workable solution. Now that I have my life back in front of me I don't want to look as though I have been through hell.

Your thoughts.

Response from Mr. Vergel

Where are you? You may want to try Silskin or Bio-Alcamid. Read for details on where to get them. Nelson
