According to a Wall Street Journal report, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently approved Juvéderm Voluma for the correction of age-related volume loss in the cheek area. Dr. Simon Ourian of Epione Beverly Hills says that immediately upon Juvéderm Voluma’s approval he made this non-surgical aesthetic treatment option available to his patients.

Aging is an inevitable process, but with Juvéderm Voluma you can fight the visible signs of aging without invasive surgery and create a natural, lifted look

As reported in the Wall Street Journal on February 5, 2014, Juvéderm Voluma is the first injectable gel filler to receive U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval for the purpose of increasing fullness and firmness and decreasing sagging and loose skin in the cheek area (go to: Juvéderm Voluma creates a subtle lift, restores facial contours to a youthful appearance, and enhances the facial profile. Even better, the results of increased fullness and volume last for up to two years. Juvéderm Voluma is a safe and powerful anti-aging treatment that gives impressive and lasting results without the risk and downtime of surgery.

Juvéderm Voluma is made with hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring acid in the skin that helps to keep skin hydrated. As a normal part of the aging process, hyaluronic acid production decreases. When production of hyaluronic acid is reduced, the skin starts to lose structure and volume. This loss of fullness and volume creates an older looking appearance. With this new product, a physician can replace hyaluronic acid that is lost to aging and reclaim a natural, youthful appearance of fullness, firmness and volume.

“Patients who receive Juvéderm Voluma injections can expect to see a lifted, fuller cheek area that gives them a more youthful appearance and profile”, says Dr. Ourian, Medical Director of Epione Beverly Hills. “With Juvéderm Voluma, I can treat and add volume to all three areas of the cheek: the apple, apex, and hollow of the cheek can all be lifted and filled. The patient will still enjoys a full range of expression and facial movement so the results look believable, natural, and soft, not stiff, hard or angular.”

“The versatility of Juvéderm Voluma allows me the ability to customize the treatment to create the most natural, youthful look possible by filling each area of the cheek to create a cohesive, complimentary look,” continues Dr. Ourian. “It is a quick and easy procedure. Most patients who receive injections are able to return to work and other activities immediately.”

Dr. Ourian has been a pioneer in laser technology and non-invasive aesthetic procedures including Restylane, Juvéderm, Radiesse and Sculptra. These treatments are used for the correction or reversal of a variety of conditions such as acne, acne scars, skin discoloration, wrinkles, stretch marks, varicose veins, cellulite, and others.
