Artefill is a non-resorbable injectable dermal filler for the correction of wrinkles and lines on the face. Artefill is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for correcting smile but it is widely used "off label" by physicians to fill lines and wrinkles all over the face. The microspheres in Artefill are not absorbed by the body and therefore provide permanent support for wrinkle correction.
ArteFill is injected directly beneath the wrinkle to add a permanent support structure and smoothen the area. The synthetic PMMA microspheres in ArteFill stimulate the body to generate its own natural collagen to encapsulate each individual microsphere, resulting in 80% of the patient's collagen and 20% microspheres (by volume) to permanently fill in the wrinkle.
As the injected bovine collagen is slowly absorbed during a few weeks, the newly generated collagen replaces it. This slow breakdown and natural replenishment process provides ArteFill with its unique and enduring results.
Thirty days before treatment, your doctor will administer a simple allergy skin test for sensitivity to bovine collagen. ArteFill treatment usually requires only 15-20 minutes, but two treatment sessions may be necessary to achieve full wrinkle correction. The treatments are typically performed three to six weeks apart. Before receiving ArteFill, you may first try a temporary filler to confirm your desired result.
Be sure to seek advice and treatment only from board-certified plastic surgeons or dermatologists with sufficient experience in the ArteFill injection technique, as well as other injectable fillers.
Artefill is long lasting, economical, feels natural, requires fewer injections and is more convenient. Try Artefil – the long lasting solution to wrinkle correction.
