NOW AVAILABLE: VOLUMA- Exclusively at Germain Dermatology!

A few months ago we previewed the soon-to-be approved facial filler, VOLUMA… and now it is exclusively available at Germain Dermatology! Always on the cutting edge of procedures, Dr. Marguerite Germain is proud to be among the first to introduce JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, a revolutionary facial volumizer, to the Charleston area. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is a new injectable volumizer that delivers a smoother more youthful appearance to your cheeks, cheekbones, and chin, safely, in as little as 15-30 minutes with results lasting up to two years.

VOLUMA™ XC, produced by JUVÉDERM, is the first and only filler approved to temporarily correct age-related volume loss in the cheek area in adults over the age of 21.  Results are projected to last up to two years, compared to the 6-12 month window of past released hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers like Restylane, Prevelle and basic Juvederm. It was also created to be smoother than other HA facial fillers, making it easier to inject during treatment.

If you look at the below photos- you can see the faces before treatment (on the left side of the face) and the after treatment (right side of the face). As you can see it looks completely natural and subtly removes problem lines.
Jill (above) was treated for ‘smile lines’.
Niffery (above) was treated for lines around her lips.

Dr. Marguerite Germain, board certified dermatologist, was selected among a small group of doctors to participate in a JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC training and advisory board conference in Boston earlier this year.  There, she received personal training for the new volumizer, as well as a firsthand look at the immediate and long-term results of the product. She has attended multiple training seminars for this product leading up to its FDA approval this month, and will be the only Charleston area dermatologist with this magnitude of exposure and knowledge of JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC.

For more information on the procedure or to schedule a consultation call us at Germain Dermatology- (843) 881-4440 or contact us through email on the website.

We can’t wait to hear what you think of the results!

“Charleston is a mecca for outdoors and beach enthusiasts. Being active is a great habit to have, but doing it with the correct precautions is important. Aside from skin cancer, increased wrinkles, pigmentation problems and texture issues are all caused from too much sun,” said Dr. Marguerite Germain of Germain Dermatology, “Our Sun Undone evening is a way for people to learn how to be sun safe and what procedures (cosmetic and medical) are available to them each, individually.”
Please RSVP to reserve your space at 881-4440. This event is free and open to the public, but has limited space.

*Remember the best option is always prevention. Keep yourself covered when in the sun and apply, and reapply, sunscreen.
