Artefill Featured on ‘The Doctors’ TV Show

Artefill injectable fillers, one of the most sought-after procedures in the United States and among the highest-rated for patient satisfaction, was recently featured on the CBS medical talk show, “The Doctors”. The filler was part of a segment about “new body breakthroughs”, and showcased the injectable’s effectiveness for reducing the appearance of nasolabial folds – otherwise known as smile wrinkles.

Artefill is the first and only FDA-approved microsphere-enhanced dermal filler that can fill out nasolabial folds, and also promotes collagen production so that skin appears smoother, tighter and more toned. The filler was introduced in the United States in 2006 and has been administered to over 20,000 patients to date.

Since Artefill’s compounds are not readily absorbed by the body, the filler provides long-lasting, natural looking results and does not demand frequent touch up treatments.

Dr. Gilbert Lee, a board-certified plastic surgeon from San Diego, administered the Artefill injectable on a patient on the show. The patient was interested in freshening up her appearance before her wedding day, and the filler was injected directly into her smile lines. The audience and viewers could see immediate results.

Dr. Lee states, ‘I was an early adopter of Artefill and have been a big fan of the results that it delivers. It is a perfect solution for patients like Laura who want to enhance their appearance without looking like they’ve had work done. The results are immediate and last longer than any other dermal filler on the market today.

The procedure takes about fifteen minutes and already contains anesthetic, so there it is a virtually painless procedure. Some patients may experience slight redness and soreness in the treatment area, but this typically resolves itself within a few hours. Patients can resume regular activities, including eating and drinking, shortly after their procedure.

  • 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, “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.
