The cheek area is a common source of trouble for patients dealing with facial volume loss.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 30, 2013
On October 23, 2013, Allergan, Inc. revealed that the FDA just approved Juvéderm VOLUMA XC™ for use as a temporary treatment for volume loss in the cheeks associated with aging. Mitchel P. Goldman, MD, the founder and Medical Director of Goldman, Butterwick, Fitzpatrick, Groff & Fabi: Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego is excited about this new FDA approval.
“The cheek area is a common source of trouble for patients dealing with facial volume loss. Juvéderm VOLUMA XC™ has shown to be safe and highly effective in filling in cheek hollows for a natural, younger looking result,” said Dr. Goldman.
Juvéderm VOLUMA XC™ is an advanced dermal filler made using Allergan’s revolutionary Vycross™ technology. The filler is a smooth gel that, when injected into the cheek area, lifts the hollow area and produces a plumping effect. Juvéderm VOLUMA XC™ also contains a numbing agent, lidocaine, to make the procedure as comfortable as possible. Both Dr. Goldman and Dr. Kimberly Butterwick, fellow dermatologist at GBFG&F, served as investigators for Allergan in the pivotal FDA study on Voluma.
“Juvéderm VOLUMA XC™ produces a smooth, even result that is desirable for a larger treatment area like the cheeks. This is going to be a great addition to the repertoire of dermal fillers in San Diego already helping us improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles,” explained Dr. Mitchel Goldman.
