ArqueDerma Advanced Filler Technique
This non-surgical face lift represents a revolutionary fusion of science (dermal fillers), engineering (the principles of physics), and art (the ArqueDerma technique).
The creator of the ArqueDerma technique, Leslie Fletcher, RN, MEP-C developed the methodology through her work of injecting dermal fillers since 2001. The conventional methods of injecting which she initially employed did not provide the dramatic results that she and her patients truly desired. She searched for a way to maximize the effects of these revolutionary dermal filler products. Realizing that engineering and physics were the essence of the structure of the face, she delved deeply into classical architecture and the writings of Leonardo da Vinci to find a modern, more exact way to beautifully transform faces and sustain that beauty by using well-established dermal fillers Juvederm®, Voluma™, Restylane®, and Perlane® as the tools.
Can ArqueDerma prevent the signs of aging? Can I avoid facelift surgery altogether?
After the age of 30 both men and women lose approximately 1% of collagen per year. The loss of this vital component to a youthful appearance quickly leaves its mark – especially if nothing is done to replace it. Because the ArqueDerma technique actually stimulates collagen production, we encourage patients to utilize it as a preventative measure, as well as a targeted, natural looking facelift. We have found that ArqueDerma has been instrumental in allowing patients to delay surgery for years, and sometimes decades, while others can avoid facelift surgery altogether.
Will it hurt? Will I be swollen? How long will it take? How much time do I need to allot for avoiding people?
The ArqueDerma technique is no more uncomfortable than conventional injecting methods. Many patients feel a slight tugging upward during the injection and are actually pleased that they are feeling the ‘lift’ that they so desperately want, so any ‘un-comfortableness’ is considered worth it.
Because the technique is dynamic to the tissue, there may be a bit of bruising depending on your body’s response. Yet, this aspect is essential to stimulating collagen production making the technique longer-lasting and sustainable. These possible after-effects can be easily camouflaged with a good concealer. Many patients show little or no such signs and go on about their day as usual.
Social downtime: the amount of time that you need to feel comfortable in social situations will depend on your body’s response to the technique, how quickly it heals, and how comfortable you are in social situations using concealer and simple makeup tricks.
How long will the procedure take?
This depends on the desired goal, how much product is used, and how much time is spent with the practitioner discussing your enhanced ‘look’. If you have not used dermal fillers before, your first session may take more product and time depending on your age, skin damage, and your desired enhancement.
Your Licensed ArqueDerma Practitioner will let you know how long you will be in session. Also, you will not need a driver because no sedating medications are needed.
How long will the results last?
Dermal filler treatments will vary from patient to patient, as well as product to product. With the ArqueDerma technique, there is an additional benefit of increased collagen stimulation, which means the results have been shown to last longer than conventional methods of filling.
Will I really save money?
Overall, Arque Derma is less expensive when compared to conventional injection methods for three reasons:
- ArqueDerma results tend to last longer than conventional filling methods, so you will not need to have the technique repeated as often;
- you will purchase less dermal filler product to treat your targeted area; and
- you will be able to address multiple aging factors in one treatment session.
These three aspects save you money while delivering longer lasting results.
Will the results be noticeable?
People will notice a more refreshed look, but no one will be able to tell exactly what is different about you! It is the most effective technique to restore a youthful appearance. Because the ArqueDerma technique is based on restoring the underlying, foundational facial structures, you will look more like you did several years ago.
