Healthy young skin contains collagen that gives it structure and volume. As part of the aging process, our own natural collagen breaks down. The loss of elasticity and volume results in wrinkles and facial lines. Injectable facial fillers smooth out wrinkles by adding structure and volume giving you a more youthful appearance.

ArqueDerma® Artistic Restoration Lift®
Pronounced ‘ARC DERMA,’ the ArqueDerma® Artistic Restoration Lift® is a cutting-edge, patented technique developed by Leslie Fletcher, RN, MEP-C, to deliver FDA approved dermal fillers such as Juvederm®. Leslie developed this revolutionary technique while working with thousands of patients since 2000 in her practice as an aesthetic nurse injector, as well as an aesthetic injection trainer.
The ArqueDerma® technique corrects volume loss, effectively collects redundant facial volume and allows the practitioner to redirect it into facial hollows. Using precepts found in physics and architectural engineering, the ArqueDerma® technique effectively extends the use of dermal fillers by 40% and stimulates neo-collagenesis to achieve unprecedented, longer lasting results.
Unlike conventional volume replacement techniques, the ArqueDerma® technique utilizes dermal fillers as strategic relocation vectors to redistribute and direct your tissue toward the facial hollows that have formed. Using the ArqueDerma® technique, your Licensed ArqueDerma® Practitioner collects excess, descended facial volume, redirects it and then stabilizes it to create a more youthful, aesthetically-pleasing look that will reveal your patients’ natural beauty.
