Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery to Offer Patients a Longer Lasting Dermal Filler

October 31, 2013

Atlanta-based Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery will be offering patients Juvéderm Voluma XC which is a new longer lasting dermal filler. Voluma XC will last up-to 18 months compared to 6-9 months for existing dermal fillers.

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) October 31, 2013

Double board certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Benjamin Stong, will soon offer a revolutionary new facial filler from Allergan called Juvéderm Voluma XC. Voluma XC is the newest generation of hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers that works to restore volume to the mid face and cheeks. What sets Voluma XC apart from traditional HA fillers is its durability, lasting up to 18 months, while other HA fillers only last about 6-9 months. It is already available in Europe and Canada, and has been approved by the FDA for launch in the States in a few months. As soon as it launches in the US, Dr. Stong will be among the first physicians to offer this exciting new product.

“Juvéderm Voluma XC will be an exciting addition to our practice and our patients,” said Dr. Stong. “It is a sub-dermal filler, which is placed deeper under the skin. Unlike some HA fillers that only fill lines and wrinkles, Voluma XC is meant to restore volume to the face and fill unwanted folds. The best part about this exciting new product is that it can last up to 18 months.” Voluma XC is administered with a cannula, or blunt-tipped, tubal instrument designed to decrease the amount of pain and bruising from injecting. Dr. Stong has been thoroughly trained on this technique and has been using it in his practice for several years. His patients have been extremely pleased with the results they have received as a result of this technique.

The United States introduced dermal fillers in 2003, and facial rejuvenation has continued to explode ever since. Cosmetic medicine has improved from just “filling” lines and folds to significantly re-contouring and re-volumizing the face for a more youthful appearance. Voluma XC was created to be smoother than other fillers in order to ensure easier injections for large areas of volumization. In the event of complications or undesirable outcomes, Voluma XC is completely dissolvable.
