Is the first FDA–approved filler available in the U.S. It is a safe and effective way of permanently reducing the nasolabial folds or augmenting the cheeks or chin area. A quick skin test is required one month prior to the procedure to ensure that the patient is not allergic to the collagen component of Artefill®. If there are no signs of an allergic reaction then the in–office filler injection can be performed safely. Four to six weeks later a second injection session is often required. Occasionally a 3rd session may also be necessary to achieve the final desired effect.
The incremental filling sessions are required to achieve safe gradual fullness without over–filling. Although this filler is initially more expensive than other fillers available on the market, over the long run it is more cost–effective since the non–collagen component of Artefill® will last permanently and negate the requirements of frequent injections year after year.
