Question: How come Artefill is the only permanent injectable filler? Why aren’t others able to last indefinitely?
Answer: Artefill is the only “permanent filler” approved by the FDA in the United States but there are plenty of others in Europe. The reason other fillers do not last indefinitely is that they body absorbs the molecules over time but the permanent fillers cannot be easily absorbed. Rather, the body’s immune system cells encapsulate the permanent filler molecules much like Tuberculosis bacteria are encapsulated by the immune system.
