Artefill Austin

Artefill is a unique long-term dermal filler used to provide renewed volume in areas of the face showing signs of age such as smile lines, frown lines, and wrinkles. Its FDA-approved formulation consists of an injectable combination of non-absorbable polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres and a form of collagen found in cowhide. The secret of Artefill’s long-lasting effects is that the PMMA is not absorbed by the body. Following an injection, the body metabolizes the bovine collagen, and then begins to create new collagen around the remaining microspheres. This new collagen helps to support your skin’s needs for natural and long-lasting volume in the treated tissues.

Most injectable wrinkle fillers break down and are absorbed by the body within several months of the initial injection. As a result, the youthful appearance achieved by the volume and wrinkle correction they provide is temporary; you may have to repeat the procedure again and again to maintain the appearance you desire. This is not the case with Artefill. Areas of the face and neck treated with Artefill actually improve in appearance over the course of several months after the initial injection, as your body naturally produces collagen around the PMMA, and results have been shown to last a year or more.

Artefill treatments can be administered in one simple 30-minute outpatient procedure in our office, and will give immediate results with very little discomfort. If you want long-lasting wrinkle removal with a quick, convenient procedure, ask about Artefill today.
