American Institute for Plastic Surgery Uses Artefill for Wrinkle Reduction

BBE038Artefill is among the leading injectable fillers used in the United States because it delivers instant, natural-looking results and can be used on almost all skin types.

The American Institute for Plastic Surgery, a well-known plastic surgery center in the Dallas metro area, is using Artefill for many of its patients that want to fight wrinkles. A recent article in Medical News Todayreports that Artefill is only available at a select number of physicians’ offices, and that the American Institute of Plastic Surgery is using it this filler to help treat smile lines, deep wrinkles and other signs of aging.

Dr. Raphael of the American Institute for Plastic Surgery made this statement about using Artefill at his practice: “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 the first and only FDA-approved collagen filler made with microspheres, and works by not only augmenting the treated area, but also stimulating collagen production in the skin tissue so that wrinkles and fine lines become less noticeable over time. Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers on the market, Artefill lasts for more than a few months and takes only about fifteen minutes per injection. The microspheres are not absorbed by the body, so the skin remains supported for several weeks and months after the treatment.

Anyone interested in getting Artefill injections will need to undergo a skin allergy test to make sure they are not allergic to the collagen compounds in Artefill. Once approved, they can undergo as many treatments deemed necessary to achieve their youthful appearance. More information about Artefill can be found here.

  • Khloe Kardashian made headlines recently after the paparazzi caught her with the infamous “trout pout” – the result of too many injectable fillers in the lips. Kim Kardashian’s younger sister appeared to have some very swollen and lumpy lips after leaving a Beverly Hills salon last week and many are suspecting that that star had cosmetic surgery. Celebrity plastic surgery doctor Dr. Anthony Youn did not treat Khloe Kardashian but believes that the star did have some type of injectable filler. He tells RadarOnline.com, “Khloe has a trout pout! The excessively plump appearance of her lips could be due to injections of a filler like Juvederm. Her upper lip is larger than her lower lip, causing her mouth to resemble a trout’s. Most injectable fillers last about 6 months in the lips, so given enough time we may see her lips shrink to a smaller and more typical size.” Another plastic surgery doctor, Dr. Michael Fiorellio who is based in New York City, made a similar conclusion. He suspects that Khloe had some type of filler treatment because, “Her lips look swollen and bruised. The product looks lumpy as well”. Dr. Fiorellio is suggesting that this Kardashian sister had either Juvederm or Restylane injections to make her lips appear larger and fuller. Injectable fillers are among the most popular types of non-invasive cosmetic enhancements around the country, and are an attractive option for women who want to add volume to their lips, fill out hollows in their cheeks, and diminish the appearance of wrinkles and lines. They’re also more affordable than having surgery and can be a convenient option for those who don’t want to deal with the long downtime and recovery process associate with a surgical procedure like lip implants or a facelift.
