Masters Level ArqueDerma Artistic Restoration Lift® Practitioner: ArqueDerma® Artistic Restoration Lift® is a patented revolutionary way of delivering dermal fillers to address the three basic signs of facial aging: loss of volume, lax skin, and skin deterioration in a way that corrects more areas, effectively extends the use of filler product by 40%, and lasts significantly longer than conventional methods of filling. This provides natural , more dramatic results not achievable using conventional filler techniques offered by most clinics. Using precepts found in physics and architectural engineering, the ArqueDerma® technique effectively extends the use of dermal fillers by 40% to achieve unprecedented, sustained results. Using this technique, the excess facial tissue is collected and artistically redirected to create a more youthful, aesthetically- pleasing look.
A note from Kris: My intention these past several months has been to up my game for my clients. I have been injecting Neuromodulators and Dermal fillers since 2010. I have worked very hard to obtain the advanced training necessary to become a clinical educator for Merz® Aesthetics, as well as create my own training facility in order to share the techniques I have perfected over the years. The latest addition to my repertoire is the ArqueDerma® Artistic Restoration Lift® and the InstaTox® technique. These will help create the look I have always wanted to achieve for my clients, which is a purely natural, refreshed look, rather than the overfilled look that give injectables a bad name. At their finest, injectables are meant to enhance and soften your natural features and restore lost volume. As an expert practitioner, I pride myself in leaving my clients feeling confident and looking like a refreshed version of their natural self.
