NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Feb 6, 2014) - "JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is a longer-lasting, more highly cross-linked injectable treatment that can build volume and restore fullness of the mid-face, particularly around the cheekbones and under the eyelids," writes Manhattan plastic surgeon Stafford R. Broumand, MD to begin a recent blog post. Aptly titled, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC Vs. Similar Injectable Fillers, the post compares this newly-FDA-approved filler with other injectable treatments designed to add volume to specific regions of the face.
According to Dr. Broumand, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is the only filler of its kind to be approved by the FDA for volume enhancement in the midface. "Results from JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC are instantaneous and generally last anywhere from one and a half to two years," he says, "so there's really nothing else on the market that compares to its longevity without a need for additional treatments." The Manhattan plastic surgeon adds that similar volume enhancers like Sculptra® Aesthetic and Radiesse™ require multiple treatments in order to attain optimal results.
Other unique attributes of this innovative filler highlighted in the post include its potential for less bruising, less bleeding, and a shorter recovery period, largely due to the specific facial areas for which it is designed to augment as well as the volume of filler necessary to achieve optimal enhancement.
Ultimately, Dr. Broumand stresses that while he feels JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is an excellent filler, he does not want to discount the efficacy of other injectable treatments: "It is, however, important to note that by no means am I saying we shouldn't be using other volume enhancers. In fact, the injectables I previously mentioned, as well as a few others, are particularly beneficial should the patient need a broader range of volume enhancement."
