First Patent for Dermal Filler Technique Granted

The InjectAbility Institute has been granted United States method patent approval for its ArqueDerma Artistic Restoration Lift technique--a technique that uses dermal filler to restores facial volume loss caused by aging. Unlike conventional volume replacement procedures, the ArqueDerma technique utilizes HA fillers, such as Juvederm, Restylane and Perlane to redirect sagging skin toward hollows that have formed, anchoring it in place while stimulating collagen production to stabilize the results. According to Leslie Fletcher, RN, MEP-C and creator of the ArqueDerma lift, the popularity of aesthetic injectables continues to expand due in large part to innovations by practicing clinicians, which result in improved outcomes for their patients. To date, Fletcher has trained and licensed more than 350 medical practitioners in six different countries in this patented technique.
“Before ArqueDerma, many of my patients thought their only option for lifting sagging skin was a facelift,” says Fletcher. “They’d come in, lift parts of their face up in the mirror and say ‘This is what I want, I think I need fillers.’ The truth was that many of them had enough facial volume, it was just in the wrong place, which is what inspired me to create this technique that would redirect their own tissue where they needed it most.”
