Introducing Artefill

March 17th, 2008 | Category: Facial Plastic Surgery

Who wouldn’t want a more permanent option for filling deeper facial folds and creases?

Well that option is finally here. We are now offering Artefill treatments here at Profiles. Artefill is an injectable gel that consists of permanent microspheres of PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate) suspended in dissolvable bovine collagen and a local anesthetic to improve comfort. There is about 20% PMMA to 80% collagen. The collagen allows the microspheres to be injected smoothly. As the collagen slowly dissolves, your body responds by surrounding the microspheres with your own collagen, thus maintaining the beneficial result.
