|Can Artefill be mixed (injected over) newplastic / metacrill PMMA?
Jan 1, 2010
Hi, Can artefill (here in USA) be mixed with newplastic, metacrill or precise PMMA (the pmma offered by Clinica estetica or dr. casavantes in brazil/tijuana) ? Meaning can the artefill filler be injected into a nose or buttocks that already has newplastic/precise PMMA?
it should be ok because they are the same except for the bovine collagen in the artefill, right?
| Response from Dr. Pierone
Yes, Artefill is ok to use layered over other PMMA products.
The one caveat is that skin testing to rule out allergy to bovine allergy is necessary before Artefill can be used.
