American Institute for Plastic Surgery Uses Artefill for Wrinkle Reduction
Posted by Cosmetic Surgery Review on September 16, 2009
Artefill is among the leading injectable fillers used in the United States because it delivers instant, natural-looking results and can be used on almost all skin types.
The American Institute for Plastic Surgery, a well-known plastic surgery center in the Dallas metro area, is using Artefill for many of its patients that want to fight wrinkles. A recent article in Medical News Today reports that Artefill is only available at a select number of physicians’ offices, and that the American Institute of Plastic Surgery is using it this filler to help treat smile lines, deep wrinkles and other signs of aging.
Dr. Raphael of the American Institute for Plastic Surgery made this statement about using Artefill at his practice: “As surgeons, we are drawn to products that offer long-term solutions and Artefill fills this need for our patients that want a lasting solution for wrinkle correction. We find Artefill offers enormous value as it lasts longer than any other filler on the market today.”
Artefill is the first and only FDA-approved collagen filler made with microspheres, and works by not only augmenting the treated area, but also stimulating collagen production in the skin tissue so that wrinkles and fine lines become less noticeable over time. Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers on the market, Artefill lasts for more than a few months and takes only about fifteen minutes per injection. The microspheres are not absorbed by the body, so the skin remains supported for several weeks and months after the treatment.
Anyone interested in getting Artefill injections will need to undergo a skin allergy test to make sure they are not allergic to the collagen compounds in Artefill. Once approved, they can undergo as many treatments deemed necessary to achieve their youthful appearance. More information about Artefill can be found here.
