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.
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.”
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.
Dr. Matthew Doppelt and the team of Southeastern Dermatology work closely with patients to help them decide which anti-aging injectable is appropriate for them.
