Can I use Artefill under my eyes? (2 answers)
I just got Restylane above my lips (the smoking lip area), and after 3 hours it was completely gone. I am scared to try Restylane under the eye due to my skin absorbing the product too fast. My physician recommended I get Artefill. Would that work? I am 40 years old and my eyes are not too bad.
Does ArteFill work to fill in hollows in cheeks? (0 answers)
Juvederm, Restylane, Dysport, Botox, Sculptra have been used on my face, all with minimal to poor results. They are quickly absorbed into my system. Is it worth the money to try ArteFill, or will I likely get the same results as with those other products?
Is ArteFill slower with results? Not happy so far (0 answers)
I had two vials of artefill 3 weeks ago around the marrionette area; I still see some lines and the left side of my face seems to enhance the fullness.
That was there before. Is artefill slower to show results than the other fillers I have had? i.e.: perlane, restylane? My specialist also used artefill for lip enhancement and also as a filler with Dyspore for my forehead. Not happy with results.
What should results of ArteFill be at 2, 3 or 4 months? (2 answers)
I had ArteFill injected in November and immediately saw results, but the results disappeared after about 1 month. Since the bovine collagen was absorbed, will my face produce collagen in those areas in order for it to fill back in?
I have a lump from my ArteFill injections, what can I do? (0 answers)
I had Artefill injected in my left chin area and they injected too much creating a lump. If I massage everyday will the lump eventually flatten out? Will kenalog-10 help to reduce the lump? What other alternatives do I have?
Can ArteFill cause bumps in your skin? (1 answer)
