LEAWOOD, Kan., Aug. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Midwest Medical Aesthetics has selected Artefill, the first and only FDA-approved microsphere-enhanced collagen filler for the correction of smile lines, to help patients defy nature and wrinkles. Kathleen Stegman, RN, M.A. has been an avid Artefill user the past several years due to its proven success and effectiveness for the long lasting correction of wrinkles.
She commented, "We have treated over 50 patients with Artefill and in one case a mother and daughter, and each and every one has been happy with the results. The product's ease of use, reliability and longevity keep our patients coming back to improve other aspects of their appearance."
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 Kansas and is not available at all physician offices. Kathleen Stegman, RN, M.A. is one of the company trained and select few company sponsored physicians who has the skills and experience needed to administer the product.
John, a patient of Midwest Medical Aesthetics, said, "I had Artefill in my nasolabial folds as part of a non-surgical facelift and can't believe how good I look and feel. The results are amazing and have even improved since I had it done."
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 10,000 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.
