Dr. Mark Youssef recently returned from a national training session, ready to use new techniques to best administer Juvéderm Voluma® at his Santa Monica practice, Younique Cosmetic Surgery.

It’s important for a doctor to always stay on the cutting edge of cosmetic surgery, because advances in treatment techniques directly translate to better results for patients.

Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Mark Youssef first introduced Voluma® to his Santa Monica cosmetic surgery practice in late 2014, incorporating the injectable filler into his menu of services to give his patients as many options as possible in their personal journeys of aesthetic transformation. Now, more than a year later, he’s still improving his approach to ensure he stays at the forefront of the most modern and current techniques. His most recent activity involved a late-April training session, where he joined other doctors from around the country in studying to exchange ideas on new injection techniques. Patients can enjoy the benefits of his training as he rolls it out in May, which will bring a month-long focus on Voluma®, including related specials, to his practice.

Dr. Youssef has been a clinical trainer for Allergan for many years. He has trained hundreds of physicians and nurses across the country.

Voluma® manufacturer Allergan led the training in Los Angeles, California.

Voluma®, part of the line of Juvéderm® dermal fillers, was first approved by the FDA to add volume to the midface area—specifically the apple of the cheeks, where loss of fat and other elements vital to healthy skin and youthful contours can lead to hollows, flattened areas, and sagging tissue. When properly applied by a certified and experienced injector, such as Dr. Youssef, Voluma® produces a lift in the cheeks that can last up to two years.

Other Juvéderm® products include an injectable to smooth out marionette lines and other wrinkles around the mouth, as well as a formulation intended specifically to plump up lips.

Voluma® and the rest of the Juvéderm® line is made up of a version of hyaluronic acid, a substance found in the skin, where it helps to retain moisture and volume. Natural hyaluronic acid levels drop over time due to a variety of factors, including age and environmental damage, prompting thousands of people in the United States each year to seek out replacement.

In addition to Voluma®, Dr. Youssef offers other injectables, including fillers, as well as BOTOX® to smooth out wrinkles. He also provides comprehensive cosmetic surgical services, ranging from breast augmentation to tummy tuck to facelift.
