San Diego, CA (PRWEB) February 09, 2014
Juvèderm VOLUMA™ XC (VOLUMA™) was FDA approved in October 2013. Dr. Moradi was among a select group of physicians who were the first to inject VOLUMA™ as part of an early release program by Allergan, the makers of VOLUMA™.
VOLUMA™ is the first and only filler approved by the FDA to correct age-related volume loss in the cheeks and mid-face. It is a smooth, hyaluronic acid (HA) gel designed specifically to restore volume to these areas of the face.
“As we age, we lose volume in our face. This is most obvious in the mid portion of the face. VOLUMA™ provides us with a non-surgical option for creating lift and re-volumizing the cheek area. This enhances the cheek contour and facial shape and creates a more youthful appearance.” -- Amir Moradi, M.D.
While Dr. Moradi is primarily injecting the cheek and mid-face with VOLUMA™ it is also used “off-label” for the temples, lateral cheek, jawline, chin and facial folds.
VOLUMA™ is unique in that the HA is cross-linked through a process called Vycross that helps provide an excellent lifting capacity. This special cross-linking also helps to slow down degradation, making VOLUMA™ last almost twice as long as other fillers. Additionally, VOLUMA™ contains a small amount of lidocaine which helps numb the treatment area during the injection procedure.
“ Patients are thrilled with the results they are seeing with VOLUMA™ . It provides a smooth look with very little downtime. Furthermore, VOLUMA™ can be molded and shaped into the desired contour after injection. Because it is comprised of HA it can also be dissolved if the client desires. These are just two more reasons VOLUMA™ is an attractive option for my San Diego clientele.”--Amir Moradi, M.D.
Allergen Inc., the makers of VOLUMA™ has earned its top position in the marketplace with the release of Botox®, Latisse® and Juvèderm® Ultra and Ultra Plus™ dermal fillers. Since attaining FDA approval, Allergen’s volume enhancing Juvèderm VOLUMA™ X is added to the company’s list of aesthetic facial injectables.
