Non-Surgical Cosmetic Procedures
Artecoll is a permanent injectable that has many uses: facial folds; wrinkles; lip augmentation; nasal irregularities; acne scars. Cosmetic Facial Plastic Surgeon - Otolaryngologist Head and Neck Surgeon Dr. Solomon has been using Artecoll successfully for several years.
Artecoll consists of microspheres suspended in a solution of collagen. It is used as an injectable micro-implant to augment soft tissue. Prior to injection, one skin test is required to determine if there is an allergy to collagen. If satisfactory correction is not achieved after the initial Artecoll implant, the treatment can be repeated 2 months later.
Artecoll is an injection that combines three key ingredients. The primary one is an inert material with decades of medical experience within the human body. With Artecoll, PMMA is prepared as very tiny microspheres, blended with a small amount of collagen, just enough to carry them through a fine needle. The formula also includes a trace dose of an anaesthetic to dull local discomfort during the procedure
Over the first 90 days after treatment, the injected collagen dissipates and is replaced with new collagen created by your body which binds the PMMA microspheres in place.
After Artecoll treatment, like other facial injections, you may experience slight swelling, redness, tenderness or itching that lasts only a short while. It's important to remember, however, that it takes 3 months for Artecoll to takes it's full effect, so you should not judge the results too soon.
