®trong>SAN DIEGO, CA – May 7, 2010 – Suneva Medical, a privately-held aesthetic medical device company, today announced that its lead product Artefill, was featured on the nationally syndicated CBS medical talk show, “The Doctors” on May 6th. The “New Body Breakthroughs” segment showcased Artefill as an effective and longer lasting solution for smile line wrinkles and one of the must-have procedures to help you look and feel your best.
Dr. Gilbert Lee, one of San Diego’s top board certified plastic surgeons, performed the Artefill procedure on “Laura” who was looking to freshen up before her wedding day. Artefill was injected into her smile lines, or the lines from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth, providing Laura a smooth and more natural look. The results were immediate.
“I was an early adopter of Artefill and have been a big fan of the results that it delivers,” commented Dr. Lee. “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.”

Artefill is the first and only FDA-approved microsphere-enhanced dermal filler for the correction of nasolabial folds, better known as smile lines. Since Artefill was approved in 2006, over 20,000 patients have been treated.
The simple, in-office procedure takes approximately fifteen minutes to complete. A patient is injected with microsphere-enhanced collagen similar to other dermal fillers. Artefill comes mixed with local anesthetic, so there is virtually no discomfort during the injection process. 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 approximately four (4) weeks prior to treatment, to ensure a patient is not allergic to the collagen in Artefill.
