The advantages of Atefill are the following: long lasting effect, economic efficiency, better convenience, minimum injections requirement and better perception.
Temporary injectable folds fillers are developed of wide diversity of natural or synthetic components ultimately consumed by your body. These components are fragmented, as a consequence, wrinkle correction has an impermanent result. A repeated procedure several months later is possibly required to maintain outline rectification.
Artefill works differently. The body does not absorb the special microspheres. Actually, their action aims to create a Support Matrix for long lasting folds correction along with your skin's own collagen. After the injection Artefill's Microsphere-Enhanced Collagen obviously diminishes the wrinkles instantaneously and the microspheres help maintain your skin for natural and long term result.
The product can offer an exclusive care profile. All the procedures are done by an easy, safe and fast in-office method. Artefill has the advantage of momentary result over the several months' procedures, so the patient can return to his normal daily routine. Artefill stands time proof test.
