I am researching a new product called Meta-Crill. It is being injected into peoples lips to plump them up. The article that I read about it says that it phagocytizes cells and bacteria. Will it destroy the white blood cells that are in the lip and do you feel that it might eventually cause injury to the inside of the lip thereby having to be removed at some time? Is this a safe product to inject into your lips for permanent use to keep your lips plump? I would appreciate anyone’s thoughts on this product and what it does to a person’s body, particuarly the lips. Thank you for your time. tamm0449
From the bit of research that I did on the product I understand that Meta-Crill is essentially composed of small beads (similar in composition to glass or acrylic) that are injected into the lips to induce collagen production and general volume increase.
I think you misunderstood when it says that it phagocytizes. This would require that the substance be alive and able to carry out a complex function as such. From my reading I found that the beads are incapable of being phagocytized. This basically means that it won’t be reduced by the living cells and organisms in your body (and is thus permanent).
The product is biologically inert and won’t be absorbed, also adding to the permanence.
I don’t necessarily think that it’s dangerous at all; whether or not it’s necessary is another question.
