MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., July 21 Howard Rosenberg, M.D., a board-certified plastic surgeon and Medical Director at Accent on Aesthetics Plastic Surgery Medical Center, has selected Artefill, the first and only FDA-approved microsphere-enhanced collagen filler for the correction of smile lines. Dr. Rosenberg has treated more than fifty patients with Artefill due to its proven success and effectiveness for the long lasting correction of wrinkles.
Dr. Rosenberg commented, "Artefill is a product we have consistently recommended to our patients who are looking for a dermal filler that lasts longer and doesn't require repeat injections. We believe we have had great success with the product over the past few years as it's easy to administer and the patient experience is similar to temporary fillers on the market today."
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 Northern California and is not available at all physician offices. Dr. Rosenberg is one of the company trained and select few company sponsored physicians who has the skills and experience needed to administer the product.
Stephanie C., a patient of Dr. Rosenberg's said, "I am delighted with the results of Artefill that I just received and will be returning for even more."
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 thousand 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.
