Artefill vs BioAlcamid for permanent Non Surgical Nose Jobs
To obtain a permanent look (I have tried radiesse and am happy with the result and would like to go permanent), so my question is....which is better....Artefill or Bio-alcamid? Is there a reason why you do not offer bio-alcamid (note, I am from canada and have seen bio-alcamid adverts)? Since you invented this, I am confident with your professional opinion.
In addition, if I had 2 syringes of radiesse used, what is the equivalent in artefill and bio-alcamid? Do you personally use more or less of the product or is the amount the same as radiesse?
Thanks in advance.
i assume that you are referring to the non surgical nose procedure.
first of all, i really doubt that you had 2 cc of radiesse actually injected into your nose. you may have been charged for 2 cc, but that's an awful lot of filler to put in your nose. i usually use about 0.5 cc or less. maybe the doctor charged you a procedure fee (although that's pretty expensive)?
anyway, i don't have experience with bioalcamid personally, but i know some information about the product. what i know concerns me very much. i would recommend that you (and anyone you know) stay away from that product under all circumstances. there are many rather gruesome stories throughout europe of bioalcamid problems (lumps, infections, etc.). i think that it is a truly inferior product and will ultimately disappear from the market.
artefill is ok, and it is the permanent filler that i use.
it will require multiple follow ups, but will give results similar to radiesse. you have to be very careful who injects it because, as a permanent filler, there's no going back. make sure that the doctor has plenty of experience with artefill in the nose specifically. don't take any chances.
