How many treatments of artefill?
Caution Is Strongly Advised When Considering Permanent Fillers
Liquid permanent fillers cannot be removed once injected. They are foreign substances, not naturally found in the body, and therefore not subject to breakdown by normal metabolic processes, as happens to more natural substances like Radiesse and hyaluronic acid. There are no enzymes, like hyaluronidase, to inject to break it down. So what this means is that if you do not like the result, you are stuck with it. It means that even if you do initially like the result, but years later, following changes to surrounding bone, cartilage and fat, you no longer like the result, you are still stuck with it. Permanence means that should five years, ten or even twenty years later complications occur, such as granuloma formation or migration, you are stuck with it.
Considering that we go for dental checkups twice yearly, teeth cleaning about the same, hair cuts every few weeks, etc. a once or year touch up (not uncommonly even less often) with a semipermanent volumizing filler for the nose, like Radiesse or Perlane L, is not so unreasonable--especially when it provides the security of knowing that if anything untoward should occur that you don't have to live with it forever.
Liquid Rhinoplasty with Artefill
If you liked your Radiesse results and that took one treatment then you should have the same effect with Artefill with one treatment especially if the Radiesse is gone completely or close to it.
I hope that helps.
