Of all fillers, Artefill is the best choice for longest-lasting results. Several studies have shown that it is consistent in providing results lasting up to 5 years or more. Artefill is made of PMMA (poly-methyl methacrylate) — an ultra uniform material that has been used in both surgery and medicine for decades now. With its ultra uniform characteristics, this filler takes on a consistent shape and size, ensuring injections are safe and predictable. It has been found out that fillers found outside America are impure, unsafe, and increases one’s risk of the body’s rejection. Therefore, it’s important to always go for PMMA that is manufactured using the exact specifications that Artefill uses to ensure that the material is taken well by the body.
If you’re getting Artefill by a qualified injector within America, you will be pleased to know that there have been no reported PMMA problems in the country. Therefore, you should not be worried about the quality of Artefill you’re getting. In a nutshell, it works really well for pre-jowl areas and smile lines around the mouth as well as the outer chin. Many injectors have reported that it can be used safely in the temples, cheeks, chin, and other areas in the face that need fillers. Personally, at Azala, we don’t use Artefill in the lips or areas close to the nose such as the lower eyelids.
There is less bruising from Artefill injections because of its collagen content. After an injection, the collagen is slowly reabsorbed and continuously improves the treated area for the next 6 to 12 months. In hindsight, this procedure not only provides continuous benefits, but its benefits also increase over time. Because of the long-lasting effects, injection technique is critical. Therefore it is best to opt for an Artefill injection with a highly qualified, expert injector. I urge patients to always do their research and find a qualified physician when getting an injection.
