What is your opinion of the permanent filler called Artefill?

Posted May 08, 2008 under Dermal Fillers - No comments

When will you have Artefill available?

Dr. Sinclair's Response

We have Artefill available now. Artefill is a permanent filler. It is similar to a previous filler called Artecoll. The problem with these fillers is that we don't really know the long term side effects of permanent fillers. Artecoll had problems with causing granulomas (inflamed nodules in the skin). So far, Artefill has not had nearly as many problems but it has not been around very long yet. If you are interested in long term fillers, you may wish to consider Radiesse. Radiesse can last for 1-2 years, it has been around for about 20 years, and problmes with Radiesse (which are rare) will dissolve over time.
