Finally approved!! Artefill — a new filler with a PERMANENT component
In another exciting development at the Bel-Red Center for Aesthetic Surgery, we offer augmentation (filling) of nasolabial (melolabial) folds and other facial folds using the newly FDA approved Artefill ® – the only filler substance with a permanent, non-absorbable component.
This provides yet another choice to the many fillers we offer at the Bel-Red Center injectables such as fat, Restylane, Perlane, Juvéderm Radiesse, and Sculptra. During a three-year process prior to the release of Artefill, the FDA required both component of the Artefill (bovine collagen and polymethyl methacrylate microsphere -PMMA) to be re-formulated as compared to the predecessor substance called Artecoll that was widely available in Europe and Canada but never in the United States. The incidence of any adverse reactions to Artefill such as foreign body granulomas is expected to be exceedingly low. Artefill is specifically contra-indicated for augmentation of lips.
