Goodbye, ArtefillPosted on December 10, 2008
In an unexpected turn of events, Artes Medical, the makers of Artefill, have filed for Chapter 7. They blame this on the difficult economy and the resulting downturn in their cosmetic business. Their product, Artefill, will no longer be available, as the company is in the process of liquidation. Even some of their reps were caught off-guard!
Artefill was one of the few semi-permanent FDA-approved fillers, and was a unique formulation. We had some nice results with it, when it was appropriately used in the nasolabial (cheek) lines.
