Permanent Fillers

April 8, 2008
Hello Dr Rivkin,

I'm your average filler junkie who is tired of constantly spending $$$ for refills. I have put careful thought and research into all decisions regarding any procedure. Thus far, it's all good....

I am interested in your opinion on the use of Silikon 1000 and Artefill. It seems most people are thrilled with Silikon, but I definitely do not want any trouble down the road. I have researched Artefill and I feel like the general opinion is that it is okay, but not a favorite.

I guess my question is, for a more permanent result, is better still yet to come in the future?

Thanks in advance,

Twila

hi twila,
yes, there are definitely better options coming.
aquamid is a filler that is being used in asia, south america and europe. i am doing the fda trials here and it is good product. very safe and effective.
i use artefill and it works well in my hands, but i'm pretty experienced with fillers.
i would be very careful who you go to for permanent fillers. once in the body, you cannot take these things out.
i do not use silikon (liquid silicone). i think that it is too risky. i am just not sure what is going to happen to the stuff 10 or 15 years down the line. i think that artefill is a better option and aquamid will be a much better option once it is approved next year.
hope that helps
