Houston and New York Dermatologist Discusses Allergan's JUVEDERM VOLUMA XC and Volume Loss in the Cheeks

Dr. Paul M. Houston Explains How JUVEDERM VOLUMA XC Can Provide Patients With Immediate Volume Enhancement of the Cheek and Mid-Face Region

HOUSTON, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 06/05/14 -- Dr. Paul M. Friedman, a board-certified dermatologist in Houston and New York, has added JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC to his line of non-surgical injectable procedures. As the first and only U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved filler for correcting age-related volume loss, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC specifically restores fullness to the cheeks and midfacial area for patients age 21 and over. Dr. Friedman says he is pleased to offer patients the injectable gel treatment as another aesthetic option to help achieve a more youthful, refreshed appearance.

In a recent blog post titled, "Key Benefits of JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC," Dr. Friedman says that one of the most appealing characteristics of JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is its longevity. Although the product is composed of hyaluronic acid (HA) (similar to other fillers), it's made of a thicker injectable substance, which causes it to degrade more slowly. In many cases and with optimal treatment, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC can last up to 24 months, says Dr. Friedman. He notes that, for patients seeking to enhance their facial contours and achieve an overall softer, more supple appearance, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC can serve as an effective solution.

The product is uniquely formulated to restore volume to all three areas of the cheek, which include the apex, apple, and hollow. Since JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is designed for a deep level of injection, the filler also contains .3 percent Lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to help minimize discomfort during the procedure.

Ultimately, Dr. Friedman says that in addition to its long-lasting effects, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC makes an appealing option because of a number of distinct benefits, including its ability to achieve:

  • Results that are typically noticeable immediately after treatment
  • Smooth results that often look and feel natural
  • Enhanced fullness to cheeks and cheekbone region
  • Diminished lines and wrinkles in the midface

The new injectable is available at the Dermatology Laser & Surgery Center, located in Houston and New York City. Dr. Friedman says that he is looking forward to offering JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ in addition to his practice's comprehensive selection of other injectables, such BOTOX® Cosmetic, BELOTERO BALANCE®, and Restylane®, in order to provide patients with a better opportunity to find the right solution for their aesthetic needs.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate.
