There is no evidence, to my knowledge of Artefill posing any problems to someone with this condition. The main issue to resolve before treatment is whether the patient is allergic to Collagen since this is the material the Artefill spheres are suspended in to allow smooth injection. If you do not have a sensitivity to collagen you should be o.k. Best of Luck  Dr Harrell

Patients need to be tested for allergic reactions with Artefill, if aft the month you are OK, then it is alright to proceed.

Using Artefill or any other filler or Botox should pose little to more likely no risk to someone with fibromyalgia and psoriasis.
