Dermal Filler Procedures Jump 30% at Center For Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery
Date:9/1/2009

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- A recent analysis of patient procedures at The Center For Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery in San Diego showed a remarkable 30% jump in dermal fillers this year. This further validates statistics issued in March by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) that minimally invasive procedures continue to weather the economic storm.

The economic environment was a key driver of the jump but Medical Director, Dr. Sassan Alavi, and his team also concluded that patients continue to seek out products that will have the longest lasting effect. As a result, Artefill has been the #1 dermal filler of choice for these patients. Artefill is the first and only FDA-approved microsphere-enhanced collagen filler for the correction of smile lines that has proven to have the longest lasting effect of any filler currently available on the market today.

Dr. Alavi commented, "I have injected over 1,000 patients with Artefill and I consistently hear "this is the best thing that has happened to me since the advent of Botox". Patients see immediate results that they love and that actually last." He continued, "I have found Artefill to be as good if not much better than other fillers available. In the long run it saves my patient's money because they don't have to keep coming back in every six months."

With over 1,000 satisfied Artefill patients, The Center For Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery selected its top five most frequent patient comments:

  • "Artefill has taken years off my face"
  • "I love it - it's great and keeps getting better over time"
  • "It makes me feel so much better about myself"
  • "It was so easy"
  • "My wrinkles are finally gone for good"

The product is only offered by a select group of physicians in Southern California and is not available at all physician offices. Dr. Alavi is one of the company trained and select few company sponsored physicians who has the skills and experience needed to administer the product.

How Artefill Works:

Artefill is a simple, in-office procedure 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.

About Artefill:

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.
