ARTECOLL is a marvelous breakthrough in skin rejuvenation. An injectable long-lasting aesthetic filler, it restores your natural, youthful appearance - safely - for 10 years or longer.
LOOK YOUNGER IN 15 MINUTES - FOR YEARS TO COME. Now you can improve your looks in less than a lunch hour. Rid yourself of unsightly acne scars, thin lips, sunken frowns and highways of laugh lines - practi¬cally once and for all.
ARTECOLL combines three key ingredients into one injectable implant. Microscopic PMMA are folded into just enough collagen to carry them through a fine needle. A trace of anesthetic, lidocaine is added to the solution to dull any discomfort during injection.
Think of it as icing, piped through the finest baker's tool, to add a touch of garnish.
ARTECOLL works by stimulating the growth of natural collagen, a vital skin protein lost over time. Collagen adds volume and structure to skin. Just as a grain of sand in an oyster transforms itself into a valuable pearl, the injected, tiny PMMA beads are enveloped by your own collagen, binding them into place under the skin. This process takes about 2 to 3 months, as the :gen carrier used to deliver the PMMA under your skin is absorbed and your body forms collagen. Your lines and wrinkles diminish. Your laugh lines are refined once again.
PMMA is an inert substance used in ocular lenses, dental work, bone repair, artificial hips and limbs, and pacemakers since the early 1930's. It is a biocompatible substance and it is safe.
Skin testing is optional. One person in a thousand may develop a sensitivity or allergy to the collagen in Artecoll.
Artecoll resist the ravages of time
Depending on your body, its effects linger for 10 years or longer. Results will vary from one person to another. The amount of Artecoll that is injected varies too, from person to person. In some cases, 2 or 3 treatments may be required to obtain the results that you desire.
