Artecoll, otherwise known as ArteFill, is a long-lasting injectable implant or facial filler. This facial filler is used to treat static facial lines, enlarge lips, fill in facial imperfections, and diminish nasolabial folds through a series of tiny injections under the skin's surface. It fills in the depression and raises the skin to its normal height. Artecoll is made of 75 percent collagen and 25 percent polymethylmethacrylate microspheres (PMMA). Artecoll can also correct acne scars, facial creases and irregularities of the nose. When an injection is given, the solution not only acts as a dermal filler, but its microspheres also stimulate the body to produce its own collagen. As the injected collagen slowly degrades naturally, the newly produced collagen replaces it thus producing long-lasting, almost permanent results.
