Facial wrinkles are a result of the natural aging process. Over time, the skin loses its ability to repair itself as the underlying elastin and collagen fibers break down.Heredity, UV exposure, and repetitive facial movement can all contribute to the development of facial wrinkles and folds.

What is the long-term safety of ArteFill?
Arte Medical recently completed a follow-up study of patients from the controlled clinical study that began in 1999. These patients were followed over a 5-year period after treatment. Independent expert observers rated photographs of patient wrinkles at five years compared to before treatment and six months after treatment. The physician investigators of this follow-up study concluded that ArteFill safely manintains significant correction of smile lines for at least five years post-treatment. Results of this study have been submitted to the FDA as well as a peer-reviewed journal which is expected to publish the results soon.
