I am HIV positive currently taking Atripla and healthy. I have undergone botox treatments and am wondering if Perlane for facial cosmetic treatment is okay to have.

Response from Dr. Pierone

Perlane is a hyaluronic acid filler similar in composition to Restylane and Juvederm. It is thicker than Restylane because it was designed with more cross-linking between the hyaluronic acid molecules.

There is no problem using it for someone who has HIV infection.

how can i manage viral load without meds?
Is Creatine supplementation safe on my kidneys with Truvada?
