Cosmetic Surgery: Polymethyl Methacrylate or Pmma (Artefill)

This quick wrinkle remedy will help to fill in areas around your eyes and mouth.

Targets: Wrinkles

Procedure: Microspheres are injected into the area, filling the crevice and prompting collagen growth. You can ask for a numbing agent. However, Artefill contains an anesthetic. 

Time: At ReNove Medical Spa in Rehoboth Beach, Artefill appointments are booked in 45-minute intervals.

Recovery: Mild swelling and redness at the injection site. The body reportedly won’t absorb Artefill’s microspheres over time, which is why the doctor may start with less material and build over multiple visits. You may need touch-ups or injections in new sites.
