ARTEFILL®

Artefill® is a lasting solution for wrinkle correction, especially for the nasolabial folds ("parentheses") and marionette lines. This simple, in-office procedure offers immediate results that just improve over time and last for many years to come. Other temporary wrinkle fillers are made of natural or synthetic materials that are absorbed by the body, resulting in only temporary wrinkle correction. Artefill is the ideal solution for those patients who have been happy with the results from temporary fillers but want a more permanent option. Artefill is made of unique polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microsphere-enhanced collagen. The bovine collagen gel is absorbed by the body while the microspheres remain in place to support the skin for long-lasting wrinkle correction. It also stimulates the body's own natural collagen production, enhancing the long lasting benefits. Patients are asked to have a skin test at least 2-4 weeks before treatment to rule out any possible allergic reactions to the collagen.

This is a simple injection given under the skin of the forearm (similar to a PPD test for TB) and patients observe the area for any signs of redness or inflammation. If no allergic reaction is noted, the patient may make an appointment for Artefill injections. Patients are asked to apply numbing cream to the site an hour before treatment or they may receive local anesthetic injections in the office to minimize any potential discomfort. Secondary injections may be indicated for optimal results. Artefill has an excellent safety profile and the treatment is quick, simple and requires little downtime. The results are immediate, improve over several months and stand the test of time.

Rejuvenating injectable skin treatments are a revolutionary development in the cosmetic industry.

In just minutes cosmetic injectables can produce dramatic, rejuvenating effects.
