SANTA FE and ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., July 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Daniel Ronel, M.D., a board-certified plastic surgeon, has selected Artefill, the first and only FDA-approved microsphere-enhanced collagen filler for the correction of smile lines, to treat patients who are looking for a longer lasting dermal filler. Dr. Ronel has been an avid Artefill user the past several years due to its proven success and effectiveness for the correction of wrinkles.
He says, "My patients love the fact that their wrinkle correction can last for years with Artefill, and I enjoy using it because it is silky smooth, versatile, and clear. In this economy, people are grateful that they do not need to come back repeatedly to pay for more filler! I have found that each syringe of Artefill goes a long way."
This simple, in-office procedure takes approximately fifteen minutes to complete. A patient is injected with Artefill similar to other dermal fillers with the key difference being its lasting effect. The unique microspheres in Artefill are not absorbed by the body and therefore provide the support the skin needs for long lasting natural feeling results. This is different from temporary dermal fillers that are made of different kinds of natural or synthetic materials that are completely absorbed by the body over time and require repeat injections to maintain wrinkle correction. A skin test is required prior to treatment or approximately four (4) weeks ahead of time, to ensure a patient is not allergic to the collagen or anesthetic in Artefill.
Artefill is only offered by a select group of physicians in the Southwest and is not available at all physician offices. Dr. Ronel is one of the company trained and select few company sponsored physicians who has the skills and experience needed to administer the product.
Elizabeth Ferrell, a patient of Dr. Ronel's said, "Artefill was the logical choice for me -- I've had deep lines ever since I was a teenager and I was frustrated at having to go back and forth for more injections. Dr. Ronel's technique, with all the holistic things he does, actually made the whole experience pleasant. My family and friends were very impressed, and felt the same way after they went in themselves."
Artefill is the first and only FDA-approved microsphere-enhanced collagen filler for the correction of nasolabial folds, better known as smile lines. The safety and effectiveness of Artefill has been extensively studied over the past eight years. Since Artefill was approved in 2006, over 10 thousand patients have been treated successfully with very high satisfaction rates.
Suneva Medical, Inc., a medical technology company focused on developing, manufacturing and commercializing novel, differentiated aesthetic products for the dermatology, plastic and cosmetic surgery markets, markets and manufactures Artefill. The Company was formed in April 2009 to deliver the same great product that physicians and patients have embraced over the past several years.
