TORRANCE, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 3, 2014) - To combat volume loss in the cheeks and midface, Los Angeles plastic surgeon Christine Petti, MD says she often uses JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC as a non-surgical option for her patients. She explains that her patients often feel as if they appear older than they actually are, due to the loss of facial volume. With facial volumizers like JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, Dr. Petti says she can add volume to the cheekbone area for a slight lift without surgery.
In a recent blog post titled, "What's a Liquid Facelift?," Dr. Petti outlines the benefits of JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, noting, "I refer to this as a 'liquid face lift' because it provides a soft, youthful contour and lift to not only the cheeks, but the entire face. The effects of this unique dermal volumizer can also help to smooth wrinkles in the midface."
The Los Angeles plastic surgeon says patients should be able to see the subtle lift to their cheeks immediately after treatment and can often continue to benefit from the results for up to two years. As the only hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler currently FDA-approved for use in the midfacial region, Dr. Petti says she is confident in JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC's ability to quickly and non-surgically rejuvenate her patients' faces, stating, "This is a great makeover for those upcoming parties, reunions and weddings! I am a believer, so you will be in good hands!"
Ultimately, Dr. Petti says her patients have been very satisfied with the results of JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, especially when used in combination with other cosmetic injectables for a customized non-surgical facelift. She notes that when meeting with patients in a consultation, she can help them to determine if JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is right for them, or if another treatment might better serve them in achieving their aesthetic goals.
