Artefill Featured on ‘The Doctors’ TV Show

Posted by Cosmetic Surgery Review on May 14, 2010

Artefill injectable fillers, one of the most sought-after procedures in the United States and among the highest-rated for patient satisfaction, was recently featured on the CBS medical talk show, “The Doctors”. The filler was part of a segment about “new body breakthroughs”, and showcased the injectable’s effectiveness for reducing the appearance of nasolabial folds – otherwise known as smile wrinkles.

Artefill is the first and only FDA-approved microsphere-enhanced dermal filler that can fill out nasolabial folds, and also promotes collagen production so that skin appears smoother, tighter and more toned. The filler was introduced in the United States in 2006 and has been administered to over 20,000 patients to date.

Since Artefill’s compounds are not readily absorbed by the body, the filler provides long-lasting, natural looking results and does not demand frequent touch up treatments.

Dr. Gilbert Lee, a board-certified plastic surgeon from San Diego, administered the Artefill injectable on a patient on the show. The patient was interested in freshening up her appearance before her wedding day, and the filler was injected directly into her smile lines. The audience and viewers could see immediate results.

Dr. Lee states, ‘I was an early adopter of Artefill and have been a big fan of the results that it delivers. It is a perfect solution for patients like Laura who want to enhance their appearance without looking like they’ve had work done. The results are immediate and last longer than any other dermal filler on the market today.

The procedure takes about fifteen minutes and already contains anesthetic, so there it is a virtually painless procedure. Some patients may experience slight redness and soreness in the treatment area, but this typically resolves itself within a few hours. Patients can resume regular activities, including eating and drinking, shortly after their procedure.
