Dr. Matthew Doppelt is a board certified dermatologist in the Knoxville area who provides a wide range of effective injectables for anti-aging. Using some of the latest treatment options, he is able to assist individuals in turning back the hands of time without the need for invasive surgical procedures such as a face lift. When patients come to his practice concerned about mild to moderate fine lines and wrinkles, and volume loss, one of the most highly recommended solutions is Juvéderm Voluma XC.
Aging can take a toll on the appearance. It can result in fine lines and wrinkles that can make patients look much older than they feel on the inside. Additionally, with aging comes the loss of collagen and therefore reduced volume in the cheeks. This can result in a gaunt appearance. When this occurs, patients may want to learn about non-invasive ways of restoring volume and thus enjoying a more youthful appearance. This is when Dr. Matthew Doppelt of Southeastern Dermatology may suggest an injectable such as Juvéderm Voluma XC for patients in and around the Knoxville area.
What is Juvéderm Voluma XC?
Juvéderm Voluma XC is an injection that uses hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring protein in the body, to attract water and add volume where administered. While some dermal fillers are great for injection right into the fine lines and wrinkles, Juvéderm Voluma XC is best for injections around the cheeks to address midface volume loss. This can help improve definition and provide a “lifted appearance.”
Juvéderm Voluma XC is an injectable with lidocaine for comfort that is used to correct age-related volume loss in the midface. This injectable has received FDA approval and can provide natural, beautiful results that can last up to two years. Many patients enjoy using Juvéderm Voluma XC in conjunction with other fillers around the face for a “liquid face lift.”
Many patients love the immediate results of Juvéderm Voluma XC and appreciate having their injections done by a trained, board certified dermatologist instead of a nurse or office practitioner. At Southeastern Dermatology, all injections are done by Dr. Matthew Doppelt to ensure the best results.
Juvéderm Voluma XC is a product from Allergan®, a company that makes a wide range of dermal fillers on the market today. Juvéderm Voluma XC is widely used by dermatologists for patients complaining of skin laxity and volume loss. The injections are done during a simple in-office procedure lasting just a few minutes. Patients relax in the treatment chair, Dr. Matthew Doppelt discusses the injection points, and treatment begins. Patients are comfortable as the lidocaine in the injectable reduces any discomfort from the needle. Individuals who have injections completed can go about the remainder of their day with little interruption, and cosmetics may be used to cover up any redness from treatment. This is short-term and typically subsides over the next 24 hours.
Who are the best candidates for Voluma XC?
The best candidates for injections such as Juvéderm Voluma XC are patients in their 30s or older who are dealing with volume loss due to the reduction of collagen and elastin in their skin. Patients begin losing collagen in their body around the age of 30 and can experience the unwanted signs of aging from this point onward, so it is essential that patients stay ahead of these signs of aging and take a proactive approach to maintaining their youthfulness.
