The Science behind ArqueDerma® Artistic Restoration Lift®

ArqueDerma® Artistic Restoration Lift®

This non-surgical face lift represents a revolutionary fusion of science (dermal fillers), engineering (the principles of physics), and art (the ArqueDerma technique).

The creator of the ArqueDerma technique, Leslie Fletcher, RN, MEP-C developed the methodology through her work of injecting dermal fillers since 2001. The conventional methods of injecting which she initially employed did not provide the dramatic results that she and her patients truly desired. She searched for a way to maximize the effects of these revolutionary dermal filler products. Realizing that engineering and physics were the essence of the structure of the face, she delved deeply into classical architecture and the writings of Leonardo da Vinci to find a modern, more exact way to beautifully transform faces and sustain that beauty by using well-established dermal fillers Juvederm®, Voluma™, Restylane®, and Perlane® as the tools. Another discovery she made during her search was the proven fact that enhanced,  controlled trauma, increases a process of collagen producing effects referred to as ‘neocollagenesis’.

ArqueDerma encompasses an entirely new concept of “blanketing” thin strands of hyaluronic acid dermal filler product, placed in strategic multi-directional vectors, to create an artistic lift of the lax tissues. In this technique, dermal fillers are administered applying an intentional force on the tissues stimulating the fibroblasts and causing them to stretch. Based on the controlled injury theory in which collagen production occurs at accelerated rates post trauma; this technique translates into longer-lasting results, and leaves a hydrating effect on the skin’s texture in the treated areas.

ArqueDerma opens a world of possibilities for difficult to treat areas such as the jowls and marionette lines of the lower face. These incomparable outcomes are achieved using almost half of the dermal filler when compared to conventional filling methods. ArqueDerma Artistic Restoration Lift is an exciting development in the aesthetic industry as it is the only technique to simultaneously address all three signs of aging. Her innovative technique has transformed the non-invasive dermal filler aesthetic category, and the ArqueDerma Artistic Restoration Lift is recognized as a new aesthetic art by many of Leslie’s contemporaries.

Thousands of people – those who find that their aging faces do not represent who they are ‘inside’ have had their confidence bolstered by a Licensed ArqueDerma Practitioner.

The ArqueDerma Philosophy

“The art of reshaping the face to its most aesthetically-pleasing proportions lies in enhancing and supporting its basic underlying structure.” 
Leslie Fletcher, RN, MEP-C

Da Vinci 'Face and Eye'Often, the effects of aging, trauma or weight loss can make our physical appearance very different than how we feel on the inside. To solve the dilemma, we search for an alternative to expensive, invasive surgeries. The non-surgical ArqueDerma technique can enhance cosmetic surgical procedures or often delay the need for surgical procedures.

The ArqueDerma 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 and/or medically approved (in Europe and other countries) dermal fillers. Our technique offers a way for the Licensed ArqueDerma Practitioner to provide more than a new, refreshed look, but to truly transform the way others perceive you.
