Nasolabial Folds Gone

I had ArteFill in Canada rather than getting another restylane injection, which I used a few times, but it didn't last as long as expected.

The one thing I found different from restylane is that the dr. went really slowly with the treatment. It took about 20 minutes to complete the treatment.

He gave me numerous tiny injections into my face. The doctor told me that he goes slow in order to avoid overfilling and giving a lumpy look. After the injections he smoothed out my skin tissue to get better distribution of the artefill material.

4 months later I'm really satisfied. Very natural looking and I swear the men are giving me more attention ;)

Hi zsuzsanna, Two other options on RealSelf: You can search for a doctor in our California Artefill directory (includes user recommendations) or ask for a recommendation in our Ask a Pro area.

Just to let you all know that Artefill has pulled out of the US so I assume Canada too. They let my plastic surgeon (Dr Gray in Michigan) know last week. I had planned to get the refund from the first vial that the company was offering but won't get it now as they are no longer in the US. I think they are still available in Europe but if you want to get it here you need to contact your PS and see if they have any left as there will be no more once their current supplies run out.

Hi Karman, I'm glad you had a good experience with Artefill. I guess I also am wondering if you are still satisfied with the results after 2 yrs., I hope so. Also, would you be able to tell me the clinic or the doctor you went to, since I'm intrested in seeing him. Thank you! Jackjames

Karman: Hi, I wonder if you can tell me what office you went to in Toronto. I live in the USA, about 4 hours from Toronto and the cost difference seems worth the trip. We're planning on vacationing this summer in Toronto anyway. Also, are you still happy with your results? I would really appreciate any info you or anyone else reading the board from Toronto can give me. Thanks in advance! Lula

I wish the Doctors name and address were provided. If a talented person exists, why keep the name a secret and let patients with the chance of getting an ugly result from an untalented doctor???

I know this was written quite awhile ago, I just wondered if your artefill still looks good and if your wrinkles are still gone. Also if you could tell me what office you went to, to have the procedure done. Thanks

Artefill has recently been re-released in the US and is taken over by another company and should be available to select providers soon. Scott Trimas, MD
