This new addition to our filler armamentarium increases our ability to accommodate more accurately various patient requests and gives many patients who are not yet ready to commit to surgical intervention another option.
Northfield, IL (PRWEB) January 15, 2014
Board-certified cosmetic surgeon and facial expert Dr. Anthony Geroulis has added to his injection rejuvenation menu an advancedfacial filler: Juvederm Voluma XC. By the makers of renowned Botox, Allergan has released to cosmetic and plastic surgeons, the first—and only—dermal facial filler to be approved by the FDA for restoring lost volume, to the mid face area, particularly the cheek region where volume becomes depleted with the aging process. Juvederm Voluma XC is made up of hyaluronic acid, a natural sugar present in the body which is biodegradable and safe, just like the other injectables in the Juvederm family—which are intended mainly for the lower third of the face.
One of the main differences between Juvederm Voluma XC and other standard formulation injections is that the newly launched, advanced fillerhas been approved to last the longest of any other formulation on the market. With a technically skilled injector, results may last up to two years— far more than the six months duration of other injection treatments. Another unique feature of the new injection filler is the added amount of lidocaine expertly built into the syringe, making the Juvederm Voluma XC nearly pain-free and eliminating any necessity for additional anesthesia.
JuvedermVoluma XC is not yet available in many cosmetic offices around the United States. Dr. Geroulis has been selected as one of the first cosmetic surgeons on the North Shore to employ this innovative formulation. Dr. Geroulis explains his enthusiasm over Juvederm Voluma XC’s launch: “This new addition to our filler armamentarium increases our ability to accommodate more accurately various patient requests and gives many patients who are not yet ready to commit to surgical intervention another option.” Dr. Geroulis’ surgical facility, the North Shore Center for Facial Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, is now also part of the Brilliant Distinctions network, a rewards program which allows patients to accrue points for every Juvederm treatment they receive. These points may be redeemed for direct discounts towards subsequent treatments, reducing treatment cost by up to 60%.
