Riviera Laser Studios Selects Artefill to Meet Growing Patient Demand for a Longer Lasting Dermal Filler
Date:8/12/2009

DANA POINT, Calif., Aug. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Drs. Mark and Jeannine Kofford at Riviera Laser Studios have 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. Drs. Kofford have been avid Artefill users the past several years due to its proven success and effectiveness for the correction of wrinkles.

They commented, "We have been using Artefill since 2006 in response to patient demand for a filler that is significantly longer lasting than the 6 month to one year temporary fillers. Our regular patients realized that the cost of continuing to return for temporary fillers adds up, costs time and results in some discomfort. Immediately, these patients lined up for this new filler."

"As experienced injectors of fillers, we were pleasantly surprised that Artefill is actually smoother and easier to inject than other popular fillers. If given the choice, we would choose Artefill for almost every patient for beautiful, smooth, natural and long lasting results. We often use Artefill in conjunction with our other laser procedures to compensate for the volume loss of aging. We have found that used in this manner, Artefill can approximate natural facelift results at a fraction of the cost, and without the risks of going under the knife," Drs. Kofford continued.

This in-office procedure takes approximately thirty 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 South Orange County and is not available at all physician offices. Drs. Kofford are a few of the company-trained and select few company-sponsored physicians who have the skills and experience needed to administer the product.

Patient satisfaction is very high at Riviera Laser Studios, and being "high volume" Artefill injectors, they are pleased to report zero complications with their usage of Artefill. The most often heard question is "When can I get more, and are you having a special?" Below are a few additional patient comments:

Sandra Vetter, beautiful Dana Point socialite and president of Orange County Newcomer's Club stated, "I like it because it allows me to look younger without having to go under the knife."

Jane House, active Dana Point Harbor paddleboarder, who has experienced most of the other fillers, said, "Fantastic! Better than any of the other products!"

About Riviera Laser Studios:

Riviera Laser Studios was founded in 2000 by Drs. Mark and Jeannine Kofford.

Mark Kofford, MD/Ph.D. has his doctorate in wound healing and collagen rejuvenation. He also lectures on his patented process, MicropixelHD, for overall nonsurgical rejuvenation and beautification. His area of expertise includes microfractional CO2 laser resurfacing for wrinkles, pigment problems and acne scarring. Dr. Kofford recently returned from a lecture tour in Asia, where he taught physicians his unique approach to dramatic facial rejuvenation with minimal risk and downtime.

Both physicians have expertise in fillers from their years of clinical experience and their natural artistic abilities. Their philosophy is that contouring is the cornerstone of a youthful facial appearance, and may even help a patient delay or avoid costly and risky surgery. Fillers are a primary part of their practice, not an afterthought delegated to assistants. Thoughtful planning and correct application of fillers is integral to safe and beautiful results. At Riviera Laser Studios, every patient deserves and receives a customized approach to his or her individual beauty needs.
