LAGUNA NIGUEL, CA, October 31, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- OC Dermatology's (www.ocdermatology.com
) Dr. Lorrie Klein, a leading dermatologist in Orange County, is one of the first physicians in the U.S. to offer JUVEDERM VOLUMA XC, the first filler approved by the FDA to treat age-related volume loss in the cheeks.
"I'm excited patients at OC Dermatology will be among the first in the country to benefit from a treatment that will help give them a more youthful appearance," Dr. Klein says. "The loss of volume in the cheek area can cause a sunken look as the skin sags. Some other products have been used to restore cheek volume in the past, but JUVEDERM VOLUMA XC is the first specifically developed to target this area."
OC Dermatology is one of only 50 practices in the nation to initially offer JUVEDERM VOLUMA XC. Additionally, Allergan, the product's manufacturer, selected Dr. Klein to help train other doctors on its use.
Dr. Klein is president and medical director of OC Dermatology and enjoys an extensive relationship with Allergan, which also makes BOTOX Cosmetic
. The Orange County specialist is among the top 1% of all physicians using BOTOX, meaning she is in the "Black Diamond" level with Allergan, and she also ranks among the top 100 of all types of physicians in the world using these treatments. Dr. Klein has also served as a member of the National Education Faculty for Allergan.
JUVEDERM VOLUMA XC is the first product of its kind specifically formulated for the cheek area. Dr. Klein said the new treatment can be combined with other products that smooth away wrinkles and folds to provide comprehensive facial rejuvenation.
"JUVEDERM VOLUMA XC represents the latest innovation in Allergan's growing portfolio of facial aesthetic products developed to address previously unmet patient needs," said Scott M. Whitcup, M.D., executive vice president of research and development and chief scientific officer of Allergan.
Dr. Klein said her patients have come to expect getting innovative, safe, and effective JUVEDERM treatments
at her Orange County facility, which also includes Euro Day Spa.
"I love the fact that I can provide the women and men who come to my practice with treatments that aren't available anywhere else," she says. "My staff and I work hard to stay at the forefront of the cosmetic and medical dermatology field so that my patients can benefit."
