Question : I was just reading an article about ArteFill and how it’s a permanent injectable filler. Could you please tell me a little more about it? I’m interested in getting it done.
Answer : That’s a good question. Artefill is dermal filler and it is long lasting. Because of its longevity, patients often enjoy it because they do not need to go to the office as frequently. This is composed of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) suspended in bovine collagen. It gives a natural appearance and is used in the face and is very good for deep facial lines. Artefill also contains lidocaine, which is a pain medication that helps to relieve any potential pain.
