San Diego Dermatologist Offers Newly Approved Dermal Filler JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC
Deborah H. Atkin, M.D. offers patients of her San Diego practice the recently approved JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC to temporarily improve signs of aging in the cheeks.
Del Mar, CA – Deborah H. Atkin, M.D., a dermatologist in San Diego, has added the latest dermal filler from Allergan, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, to her practice’s collection of skin care treatments. The filler was recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration and is the first of its kind designed to address loose, sagging skin in the cheek areas. Dr. Atkin says she is pleased to offer her patients this advanced new filler, as it can help people achieve more thorough anti-aging results.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is the only hyaluronic acid filler approved to treat moderate to severe wrinkles in the cheeks. The treatment can rejuvenate one’s appearance by adding volume to the area, which smoothes the skin and can restore a more youthful complexion with long-lasting results. Dr. Atkin notes patients 21 years or older are eligible to receive the JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injections. She says results are often immediately apparent, and the anti-aging effects have lasted up to two years in some patients. She explains it is normal to experience some tenderness, bruising, redness, and a bit of swelling after treatment, though these effects should fade in the days that follow.
The product was released slowly to doctors in the San Diego area. Dr. Atkin was in the second of three tiers of doctors selected to administer the product. She explains how other medical professionals in the area have just recently been able to utilize JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, allowing more and more people to discover its cosmetic benefits. “I would recommend Voluma to my patients who are looking to volumize and lift the mid-face. It is a wonderful long-lasting filler option which leads to immediate correction and a more youthful appearance.”
For those interested in cosmetic injectables, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, Radiesse®, or JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, Dr. Atkin stresses the importance of finding a qualified medical professional to perform the treatment. By doing research and finding a board-certified doctor, she explains patients are more likely to achieve the balanced, natural-looking results they desire.
