I just learned today that Artefill is now being sold again. The original company Artes Medical entered bankruptcy last December and up until today I haven’t heard a peep. In fact I was very surprised that no company purchased the assets as it was a great product and all of my patients were very happy with the results. Well today a sales representative from Suneva Medical, the company that acquired all the rights to Artefill, just visited and explained the deal. Aretefill is now shipping. If you are interested in getting this permanent filler let us know. We will be working to put the webpages back up on the site with all the information. Many of you have already had the skin test done. Finally some news.

We just added a great new sunscreen to our product selection. We don’t add products often, but this sunscreen I have had my eye on for about one year and decided it was time to bring in for the season. It has the best broad spectrum coverage on the market for UVA/UVB protection and will not break down in sunlight. It is also water resistant and provides up to 6 hours of long lasting protection (most other sunscreens break down after 2-3 hours). The critical UVA wavelength is 383. It’s application consistency is excellent. Come in and try it.
New uses of Radiesse are coming along all the time. I have had much success using Radiesse in the hands, to smooth out veins and make hands look much more youthful. Come in and learn more about this great new technique.
