Park Avenue Plastic Surgeon Dr. Ramtin Kassir Leads the Way With Successful Early Adoption of Juvederm Voluma(TM)

Exceptional Results From First and Only FDA Approved Filler to Correct Age-Related Volume Deficits

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - February 05, 2014) - Always ahead of the curve when it comes to new developments in plastic surgery, Manhattan's triple-board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ramtin Kassir is a leader in early adoption of the new injectable hyaluronic acid volumizing gel Juvéderm Voluma™ XC. The first and only filler FDA-approved injectable to instantly add volume to the cheek area, Voluma™ adds fullness to areas of the face that need a little more support or enhancement.

Dr. Kassir observes, "I am very pleased, as are my patients, with the results from Voluma™ as a new entry in the injectable category. It softens and adds a youthful, more rounded contour to the face easing the effects of aging. Not only does it last for a significant amount of time (far longer than any other injectable) but it is an excellent complement to other fillers such as those which are FDA approved for nasolabial (smile) lines. It also works well with Restylane which was recently was approved for lips. We are seeing an upwards curve in patient demand for the newest injectables in both our Park Avenue and New Jersey clinics where we offer all currently FDA-approved options."

Juvéderm Voluma™ gives patients over the age of 21 a subtle lift as it helps to restore a more youthful profile. Results last for up to 2 years. It's different than Juvéderm®XC and works on a different area of the face: Juvéderm®XC®smoothes out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, like parentheses.

Juvéderm Voluma™ however, adds volume to the cheek area. Although certain fillers may previously have been used off label to boost volume in this area, Voluma™ stands alone in receiving the approval of the FDA and as such is designated as 100% safe.
