The Best Liquid Facelift
By: Dr. Laura Skellchock
When asked what causes facial aging, many people will correctly answer “volume loss.” The moment we begin to lose that volume, we begin to show our age. Since this volume loss happens to everyone, there is an incredible amount of people searching for the anti-aging cure. As a Cosmetic Dermatologist, who has seen many products, I want to share with you that I have found a product that not only makes your look younger, but also reverses the signs of aging.
Many years ago the only product available for this was collagen. Soon after, Restylane® Radiesse® and Sculptra® were introduced into the market. But in my opinion, the most enduring soft tissue filler is ArteFill®.
Why I Believe ArteFill® is the Best Liquid Facelift
ArteFill®, made by Suneva Medical, Inc. was FDA approved in October 2006. Before that, ArteFill® was used in orthopedic prostheses for decades. So, there is little chance of an allergic reaction to it. Studies have shown that clinical results are safely maintained 5 years after injection. Results are much more predictable with ArteFill® than with fat injections, the only other potentially enduring facial filler used today. Since the FDA approval of this product, I have given hundreds of doses of ArteFill®, with truly remarkable results and no complications.
Results From ArteFiIl® Injections
Results from ArteFiIl® injections are immediate and continue to improve over time. The ingredient is absorbed by the body over the first three months after the injection, while the body produces new collagen. In fact, patients seem to “age in reverse” with this product since the body maintains the new collagen. Bottom line, this product works.
Liquid Facelift ArteFiIl® Side Effects
As with any injectable wrinkle filler, you can expect mild swelling and reddening at the treatment site. These side effects are usually gone within 24 hours. Occasionally, there is mild bruising that typically disappears in three to seven days. Less common side effects include rash and itching more than 48 hours after treatment, persistent swelling or redness, and increased sensitivity at some or all injection sites.
