Written by Dr. Ringpfeil

Arterfill

Overview:

Preparations:

Skin test is necessary 1 month prior to treatment to screen for allergies to bovine collagen. Avoidance of aspirin and ibuprofen for 10 days. Local anesthesia by injection makes the procedure more comfortable.

Post treatment instructions:

Avoidance of aspirin or ibuprofen for 3 days.

Time to desired results:

3-6 months.

Duration of desired effects:

Permanent. A second treatment may be added 3 months after the initial injection.

Contraindications:
