JUVEDERM VOLUMA™ XC is the only FDA-approved filler to restore volume to the cheeks and is the hottest cosmetic trend of 2014, says Dr. Daryl K. Hoffman, a plastic surgeon in San Jose who offers the injectable at his Palo Alto and Los Gatos offices.
Online PR News – 14-March-2014 – Palo Alto, California (March 2014) – Dr. Daryl K. Hoffman (www.dkhoffmanmd.com) says JUVEDERM VOLUMA XC is quickly becoming the most popular dermal filler at his plastic surgery practice serving San Jose, Palo Alto, and Los Gatos, reflecting a nationwide trend as patients take advantage of the injectable gel's unique ability to restore volume to cheeks.
"It's being called 'The Hot Shot' of 2014," Dr. Hoffman says. "It's one of the most anticipated cosmetic products in the last several years."
Why such excitement? Youthful faces have round contours and high cheekbones, and the lower face, chin, and jawline are well defined. Until now, Dr. Hoffman says, most patients needed cosmetic surgery to accomplish the results they wanted.
"The larger areas of the face, including the cheeks, can get a gaunt, sunken look as we age," he says. "Plastic surgeons and patients alike met VOLUMA XC's FDA approval with excitement because it is the only filler specifically designed to restore volume in those areas."
Other dermal fillers available at his San Jose area offices, says Dr. Hoffman, address wrinkles and nasolabial folds, which run from the nose to the corners of the mouth. VOLUMA XC is different because it is a thicker gel and is injected deep into the skin, giving a lifted, more youthful appearance to the face.
Dr. Hoffman adds that among medical spa services available in the San Jose and Palo Alto area, VOLUMA XC is the longest-lasting dermal filler.
"Patients are thrilled to learn that the results of VOLUMA XC injections are clinically proven to last up to 2 years," he says. "A touch-up treatment during that period may extend the filler's benefits even longer."
Like many dermal fillers, VOLUMA XC is made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body. It also includes lidocaine, a local anesthetic that helps patients tolerate the injections with more comfort.
"Non-surgical facial rejuvenation is becoming more and more popular," Dr. Hoffman says. "JUVEDERM VOLUMA XC represents a giant leap forward in offering women and men a non-surgical facelift with long-lasting results."
