American Institute for Plastic Surgery is Using Artefill to Fight Patient Wrinkles
Date:9/1/2009

PLANO, Texas, Sept. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- American Institute for Plastic Surgery, one of the leading plastic surgery centers in the metro-Dallas area, is using Artefill to help patients fight wrinkles for good.

Artefill is the first and only FDA-approved microsphere-enhanced collagen filler for the correction of smile lines and is one of the cutting edge products co-founders Dr. Peter Raphael and Dr. Scott Harris have been using to treat patients who want a dermal filler that lasts more than a few months.

Dr. Raphael commented, "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 a simple, in-office procedure that takes approximately fifteen minutes to complete. A patient is injected with the product 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.

One of Dr. Raphael's patients said, "I have tried the other fillers but I never felt fully satisfied. It was also tiring coming back into the office every few months for a touch up. Since having Artefill, I look and feel younger. It was worth paying a little extra money upfront for a product that will actually last."

Artefill is only offered by a select group of physicians in Texas and is not available at all physician offices. Drs. Raphael and Harris are a few of the company trained and select few company sponsored physicians who have the skills and experience needed to administer the product.
