Is Artefill a good filler for the under eye area?

What do you think of arteform? Particularly for slight hollows in the undereye area?

I’m thinking you might mean Artefill even though you wrote Arteform??  If I’m mistaken, please write again.   Artefill is a terrible idea in general and especially under the eyes.  It is a permanent (read this cannot be fixed under any circumstance if there is a problem except by cutting it out) filler composed of microscopic plastic beads.  The chances of you having a problem with it is high and there is no way to correct it.   I really vote no on this one.  See my Guide to fillers Juvederm and Restylane or my Guide to Sculptra instead.    Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
