Artefill® is made up of unique microsphere-enhanced collagen. The collagen gel is absorbed by your body while the microspheres remain in place to provide long-lasting support your own skin needs for wrinkle correction. Artefill®’s microspheres are 5 times smaller than the material in temporary fillers. To determine if you are a candidate for Artefill®, a collagen skin test is required four weeks prior to treatment.
The initial appointment includes a complimentary consultation to discuss expectations and review & complete the consent forms. The treatment itself will take about 30 minutes and includes the numbing cream and treatment.
One week prior to treatment, patients will want to avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory medications, Vitamin E and St. John's Wort. This will help minimize any bruising or bleeding. The most common side effects are temporary swelling and redness and these will usually subside within 2-3 days.
Before and After pictures are available on the Artefill ® Web Page.
