Pronounced 'ARC DERMA,' the ArqueDerma® Artistic Restoration Lift® is a patented cutting-edge technique developed by Leslie Fletcher, RN, MEP-C, to deliver FDA approved dermal fillers such as Juvederm®, Voluma® Restylane®, and Perlane®. 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 natural beauty.

The ArqueDerma® Philosophy "The art of reshaping the face to its most natural aesthetically-pleasing proportions lies in enhancing and supporting the basic underlying structure." Leslie Fletcher, RN, MEP-C
Often, the effects of aging, sun damage, and weight loss can make your physical appearance very different than how you feel on the inside. Our goal is to enhance your best features and minimize those that are less-than-perfect through the artistic use of the patented ArqueDerma® technique in combination with FDA approved dermal fillers. This technique offers a way for your Licensed ArqueDerma® Practitioner to provide more than a new, refreshed look but to truly transform the way others see and perceive you.
Stefanie Magnant R.N. has personally trained with Leslie Fletcher, RN, MEP-C and is now a Licensed ArqueDerma® Practitioner.
We understand that it is hard to imagine that the ArqueDerma® technique could deliver such significantly enhanced results. Yet, after teaching the technique to over 2000 health professionals over the last four years, not one clinician has told us that they have seen anything like the ArqueDerma® technique. In fact, it is so unique that it is the only dermal filler technique that has qualified for a patent."
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
Licensed ArqueDerma® Practitioners use the FDA market-approved dermal fillers, Juvederm®, Voluma ®, Restylane®, and Perlane®. 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 Arque Derma® 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.
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.
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.
Social downtime: the amount of time that you need to feel comfortable in social situations will depend on your body's response to the technique, how quickly it heals, and how comfortable you are in social situations using concealer and simple makeup tricks.
This depends on the desired goal, how much product is used, and how much time is spent with the practitioner discussing your enhanced 'look'. If you have not used dermal fillers before, your first session may take more product and time depending on your age, skin damage, and your desired enhancement. Your Licensed ArqueDerma® Practitioner will let you know how long you will be in session. Also, you will not need a driver because no sedating medications are needed.
Dermal filler treatments will vary from patient to patient, as well as product to product. With the ArqueDerma® technique, there is an additional benefit of increased collagen stimulation, which means the results have been shown to last longer than conventional methods of filling.
People will notice a more refreshed look, but no one will be able to tell exactly what is different about you! It is the most effective technique to restore a youthful appearance. Because the ArqueDerma® technique is based on restoring the underlying, foundational facial structures, you will look more like you did several years ago.
