Newport Beach Dermatologist Offers Latest Allergan Dermal Filler JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC
Dr. Nancy L. Silverberg discusses how JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC can provide nonsurgical rejuvenation for patients looking to correct age-related volume loss in cheek and mid-face region.
Newport Beach, CA – Dr. Nancy L. Silverberg, a dermatologist in Newport Beach, has added JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC – the first and only U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved, hyaluronic acid-based filler for cheek-related volume loss – to her practice’s selection of cosmetic dermatology treatments. For patients seeking to nonsurgically restore fullness to the face and achieve a more youthful-looking appearance, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC may present an ideal solution, says Dr. Silverberg.
“The most common product we used for volume replacement before VOLUMA™ was Sculptra®,” she says. “Sculptra® is still used for this indication, although it works differently. Sculptra® stimulates the body’s own collagen over time (about six months) whereas VOLUMA™ is an immediate filler.”
In a recent blog post titled, “Benefits of JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC,” Dr. Silverberg also explains that although JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler, the product is a thicker injectable gel, and as result, degrades more slowly, offering patients the unique advantage of longevity. Whereas most HA fillers last several months, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is clinically proven to last up to two years, explains Dr. Silverberg.
While many nonsurgical facial rejuvenation products are currently available to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is distinct because it presents a new kind of solution to the second component of facial aging: volume deficiency. “Products such as Perlane® and Restylane®, like Juvederm® XC, are used for wrinkle correction,” says Dr. Silverberg. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC was created for larger-scale volume replacement and specifically to add fullness to all three areas of the cheek: apex, apple, and hollow. It is also made with Lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to help minimize discomfort during the injection, she says.
Ultimately, Dr. Silverberg says patients who are looking to achieve a more youthful, natural appearance through nonsurgical facial rejuvenation should speak to their dermatologist or medical care professional. Each injectable treatment can offer select benefits in addressing age-related concerns, she says, adding that it is important for patients to discuss their goals and aesthetic concerns with a board-certified physician so they can more effectively achieve the balanced, natural-looking results they desire.
