ArteFill

ArteFill is now marketed in the U.S. under the new brand name Bellafill.

ArteFill is a permanent injectable dermal filler used to restore volume in your face and reduce the appearance of fine lines, deep wrinkles, and scars. ArteFill is made of bovine collagen and microspheres made of a plastic called PMMA that stimulate new collagen growth.

How ArteFill treatment is performed

ArteFill is a quick, non-invasive treatment performed in your dermatologist’s office.

First your treatment area will be numbed with a topical anesthetic, and the ArteFill will be injected into the deep, dermis layer of your skin using a fine needle or cannula, which is like a blunt-tipped needle. Your doctor may gently massage the injection site to help distribute the ArteFill.

Since ArteFill contains bovine collagen, your doctor will have you take an allergy test prior to treatment.

Recovery and results

There’s no downtime after your treatment, but you might have some mild side effects like redness, swelling, lumps, or itching that can last a few days. You’ll see immediate results due to the collagen in ArteFill, and over time your body produces more collagen due to the microspheres in the ArteFill that act like a scaffolding. You can expect long-lasting results for up to five years.
