Treatment will be according to the approved labeling for ArteFill for the correction of nasolabial folds. The nasolabial fold is the line or fold that extends from approximately the inferior aspect of the ala of the nose to the commissure of the mouth on the right and left side of the face.
This study is a multi-center, non-randomized, non-controlled post-approval study designed to follow a total of 1000 consecutive qualified and consenting subjects treated with ArteFill in the course of clinical practice at approximately twenty-five centers. All potential qualifying subjects at a given site should be given the opportunity to participate in the study. Inclusion and exclusion criteria will be limited to those in the approved labeling for ArteFill and treatment will be according to the approved product labeling. Subjects must have a previously documented negative skin test prior to treatment.
