HARRISBURG, PA, December 04, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Dr. Scott Gayner of Stratis Gayner Plastic Surgery is one of the first physicians in the United States to offer JUVEDERM VOLUMA XC. He will also train other physicians on proper injection of the product, and he says he is enthusiastic about this latest addition to his selection of facial fillers
"I recently traveled to California to learn about VOLUMA, and my time there was invaluable," he says. "I'm excited to be the first and only physician to offer VOLUMA in central Pennsylvania. It's great to be able to give my patients a new aesthetic option."
Manufactured by Allergan, the company behind BOTOX Cosmetic, JUVEDERM VOLUMA XC is the first injectable dermal filler approved by the FDA to treat age-related loss of volume in the cheeks.
Scientists at Allergan used their proprietary VYCROSS technology to develop JUVEDERM VOLUMA XC. VYCROSS is a manufacturing technique that allows the injectable gel to flow smoothly and consistently.
"The result is a natural-looking appearance with no lumps," Dr. Gayner says, also praising the product for bringing a new method of treatment to the industry. "Previously, the major focus of the anti-aging world was treating lines and wrinkles. Using BOTOX and other dermal fillers helped, but it wasn't enough. Now with VOLUMA, we are also adding volume, which goes a long way to restore a look of youth."
As more people in recent years have started to choose non-surgical treatments to rejuvenate the face over options such as facelift surgery, Dr. Gayner says VOLUMA XC is a real boon.
"It's a great option for people seeking a non-surgical facelift
in Pennsylvania. With an injection of merely 1 or 2 ccs, we can create quite extraordinary mid-face changes that can last for up to 2 years."
Certified by both the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology, Dr. Gayner limits his work to facial plastic surgery and non-surgical facial rejuvenation. His focused work and extensive list of accomplishments are what initially attracted Allergan. Dr. Gayner has also been named by Allergan as a Platinum Provider, indicating his expertise with the company's products, including BOTOX Cosmetic and the original lip formulation of JUVEDERM
, at his Pennsylvania practice.
Dr. John Stratis, Stratis Gayner's founding physician, says he is proud of his partner's achievement and excited by the introduction of VOLUMA XC.
"I'm looking forward to incorporating VOLUMA into the practice," he says. "Dr. Gayner worked hard for this honor, and I know he's up to the task. VOLUMA is truly a groundbreaking product, and I'm certain our patients are going to love their results."
