ArteFill® in Houston, TX

Dr. Joseph Perlman offers ArteFill® to patients throughout Spring, Houston, The Woodlands, Atascocita, Conroe, Pasadena, Baytown, and the surrounding areas.

What Is ArteFill®?

ArteFill® corrects facial wrinkles known as nasolabial folds, or smile lines. Unlike existing dermal fillers that are completely metabolized by the body, ArteFill® represents the first product in a new category of non-resorbent dermal fillers providing a permanent support structure for enduring wrinkle reparation.

Dr. Joseph M. Perlman and his medical team at Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre offer ArteFill® to patients who want permanent correction of facial wrinkles and lines. For more details on the treatment, contact us today to set up an appointment. We provide ArteFill® to men and women who live in Houston and beyond, including residents of Spring and The Woodlands.

 

Am I a Good Candidate for ArteFill®?

Men and women of any age can receive ArteFill®. However, the filler is not suitable for people with allergies to bovine collagen or patients with chronic skin infections. During your meeting with Dr. Perlman, he will be able to gauge whether the procedure is right for you.

What Is the Process for ArteFill®?

ArteFill® treatment is also known as soft tissue augmentation. The solution is made of millions of synthetic molecules (polymethyl-methacrylate or PMMA) suspended in purified bovine collagen. The gel also contains the local anesthetic lidocaine to reduce discomfort during injection.

It takes about 15 to 20 minutes to inject the filler with a fine needle. Your ArteFill® specialist will aim the solution underneath the wrinkle, just above the skin’s fat layer. Two sessions, about three to six weeks apart, may be necessary to achieve the desired results. Once the ArteFill® treatment is complete, the patient can immediately resume normal activities.

What sets ArteFill® apart from most other dermal fillers are the PMMA molecules. These synthetic particles cannot be absorbed by your body. Instead, they stimulate the creation of your own natural collagen, which then envelops each microsphere and permanently fills in and plumps up wrinkles.

What Are ArteFill® Costs?

The best way to find out what the procedure will cost you is to schedule a visit with the medical staff at Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre. We will be pleased to discuss ArteFill® prices with you. Dr. Perlman also offers finance options to all of our patients.
