The ArqueDerma® Artistic Restoration Lift® is a revolutionary concept in administering dermal fillers. (Juvederm®, Voluma™, Restylane®, and Perlane). This non-surgical face lift represents a fusion of science (dermal fillers), engineering (the principles of physics), and art (the ArqueDerma® technique). So novel, and useful, ArqueDerma® Artistic Restoration Lift® qualified for a method patent; the first of its kind!
Unlike conventional volume replacement techniques, the ArqueDerma® technique encompasses an entirely new concept of “blanketing” thin strands of hyaluronic acid dermal filler to direct lax tissue toward facial hollows that have formed. Injecting and "Filling" areas where volume is lost creates the risk of an artificial appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions:
How can I be assured that the ArqueDerma® technique is better than conventional methods of injecting dermal fillers?
Here is just one physician's viewpoint.
"This new technique is revolutionary. The ArqueDerma® technique uses trusted injectable products and orients them in a way that provides much more support for the tissue. It is more effective at eliminating folds and wrinkles than traditional techniques and it rejuvenates the surrounding areas as well. As a plastic surgeon, I have seen many gimmicks promoted in the past, but this technique truly makes a difference." Michael Newman, MD Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Torrance, CA
Are the products safe? What are the risks?
Licensed ArqueDerma® Practitioners use the FDA market-approved dermal fillers, Juvederm®, Restylane®, and Perlane®. (At Face and Body Group we use Juvederm® XC dermal filler.) These dermal fillers have gone through the rigorous FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) submission process, hold market approval, and have been used every day in clinics throughout the world since 1996. The single, most important difference is in how they are administered. Only Licensed ArqueDerma® Practitioners are licensed to use this revolutionary technique.
There are no additional risks when administering ArqueDerma® techniques when compared to conventional methods of injecting these dermal fillers. In fact, because of the dynamic nature of the injection, we feel it is even safer than some current injection techniques.
I believe I really need a complete facelift!
Can I expect the same results as I would get with surgery?
Will I be able to avoid the windblown, pulled back, puffy cheek look that I see so often?
Unlike conventional dermal filler methods that 'fill up' areas, the beauty of the ArqueDerma® technique is that it targets the structural support of the face, 'reaching in' to bring sunken volume to its original position. We use your own volume, and redirect it, supporting the face structurally (like the frame-work supports a building) ArqueDerma® works at the structural level; providing a result that is more natural than conventional aesthetic procedures and face-lifts.
Can ArqueDerma® prevent the signs of aging? Can I avoid face-lift 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 face-lift. We have found that ArqueDerma® has been instrumental in allowing patients to delay surgery for years, and sometimes decades, while others can avoid face-lift 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.
