Artefill is the first injectable filler that fulfills the promise of lasting results. ArteFill injections have been used for more than a decade throughout Europe and Canada under the name Artecoll for treatment of nasolabial folds (the deep lines that run from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth).
What is Artefill made of?
Artefill is a combination of a well-known temporary filler (Collagen), and a permanent acrylic based filler known as polymethyl methacrylate, or PMMA. ArteFill contains 80% purified bovine collagen and 20% ArteFill Precision-Filtered Microspheres (tiny spheres made of PMMA, the same material used for dozens of medical implants over the last 50 years).
Is it safe?
Artefill has been approved by FDA and it have been use for many years by plastic surgeons around the world.
How long does Artefill last?
Artefill results are similar to results obtainable using other fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm, and Radiesse. The major difference is that results from ArteFill are long lasting. 5 years.
How often should I have Artefill treatment done?
Typically only 1-3 treatment sessions, about 3-4 months apart, are needed to get a lasting correction.
