Artecoll removal

Artecoll is a permanent product.  Injection with kenalog  can reduce lumps which can form from the product and possibly reduce its volume.   Removal of the product generally requires surgery.  Generally patients are encouraged to use temporary fillers before considering artecoll / artesense.  In canada supply of this product has become limited recently.

Artefill - can it be removed

+1

Artefill is considered to be a permanent product.  There isn't anything you can inject to remove it like there is for Restylane or Juvederm.

Artefill is a permanent facial soft tissue filler

+1

Juvederm and Restylane are temporary fillers, whereas Artefill is a permanent filler. If you are concerned that you may not like the Artefill injection, you may consider trying a temporary filler before embarking on a more permanent product.
