Artefill, approved by the FDA in October of 2006 is a long-term filler for nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Lots of us liked it very much but during the recent economic slowdown the company went bankrupt. The product retained its FDA-approved status, however, and the company waited for another pharmaceutical firm to take over.
Artefill’s efficacy and safety profile have been validated through many clinical trials pre- and post-FDA approval and over 20,000 patients have been treated with Artefill since it’s introduction to the U.S. market.
I am happy to say Artefill is again available since Suneva Medical purchased the company for over $200 million for the rights to produce the product.
