In brief: Permanent filler
Artefill is a dermal filler, like Restylane (dermal fillers) or juvederm.
Unlike the other two products, artefill is a permanent filler and cannot be reversed, so it be must used be an experienced injector. There is a small risk of allergic reaction as well, so a skin test is generally needed before the injection can occur.

In brief: Collagen stimulator
Artefill is animal collagen with microscopic particles of a product called pmma.
As the injected collagen wears off, the pmma stimulates production of your own collagen to replace it. Unlike most fillers that wear off, the results from artefill can be permanent.

problem with this product as with other collagen injections is the potential for allergic reaction, have a pre ejection test dose. All fillers do create a degree of response by the body with collagen deposition causing some longer lasting response.
