Smile Lines Made Worse by Artefill
on 11 Feb 2012
Hi - I'm 66 yrs and wanted to correct the bags under my eyes. I went for 2 evaluations with 2 Dr's. I was told Artefill would disguise the bags and improve appearance with one treatment and perhaps "tweaking" after the initial injection. I've had 2 treatments and approx 3 "tweaks". The results are much less than expected and I believe after a couple of months now that the bags are more prominient(sp) than before the injections. The Dr. is now telling me that it may take up to 18 months to treat this area as opposed to the injection / tweaking to correct this. It's been about 2.5 months since my last appointment and I think the bags are getting or appear larger. What I'm thinking now is that the Artefill injections have added weight to this area and are adding to the pronounced bags. Could this be the case? I was also told by a different Dr. that Artefill should not be used in areas where the skin is thin ( under eyes and around eyes) Is this true?
