The calendar has flipped once again into a new year, and as is the case with every new year in cosmetic surgery, we as cosmetic surgeons welcome new treatments. The cosmetic medicine industry will never stop growing, and cosmetic surgeons who don’t think about the future and the newest treatments on the market are doing their patients a disservice.
I’ve always seen it as my duty to present my patients with as many treatment options as possible. It’s why I’ve spent countless hours and dollars learning and acquiring the newest, most innovative cosmetic treatments and products.
As we step into 2014, I’m excited to introduce several new treatment options and products to our patients for the New Year. I’ll be revealing several new treatments for 2014 in the coming days. Up first, the cheek filler we’ve all anxiously expecting for what seems like forever…
Juvederm Voluma XC
We’ve been waiting patiently for Juvederm Voluma to receive FDA approval, and it did just that only a couple months ago. Voluma is comprised of hyaluronic acid, just like regular old Juvederm, but Voluma is specially formulated to treat the caving cheekbone area of the face that so many of us experience as we age.
Voluma is the first FDA approved treatment for the filling and plumping of the cheeks. One of the most telltale signs of facial aging is sagging, caving cheeks. Voluma helps restore the youthful appearance of plump cheeks, which in turn augment your smile. I’ve even found that Voluma treatments indirectly lift your nasolabial fold areas.
I’m excited to report that my early Voluma returns are overwhelmingly positive. Allergan, the company that manufactures and distributes Voluma, reports that the treatment will last up to two years. Pricing begins at $799 per syringe, which provides excellent value for a treatment that can drop years off your aging face and can be done during your lunch break.
