We are constantly on the lookout for cool new stuff…..products and procedures that actually work for our patients. Here are some of the latest fun things happening in our office and new products available through our online store..
Volbella XC is a brand new filler in the Juvederm family that is specifically formulated for smoothing the vertical lines around your mouth. It can also be used for more precise shaping of the lips for people who want their lips to be defined, rather than full and plump.
Its thinner formulation is perfect for treating really fine lines and filling in the tear troughs under the eyes, but it is much longer-lasting than other thin hyaluronic acid formulations on the market.
If you are looking for a natural-looking, subtle correction, then Volbella is absolutely perfect for you. There is little to no swelling with Volbella and it lasts for one full year. Like the rest of the Juvederm family, Volbella XC contains lidocaine.
We are the first in Knoxville to use it.

Now this is very exciting since everyone seems to be focusing on the neck these days. Because chin- and neck-fat dissatisfaction afflicts 68% of the population, we know there are many folks out there eager to learn more about the two new nonsurgical options available to treat submental fat and fullness. (Submental is “medicalese” for under the chin.) Both have just been approved by the FDA, but the way they each work is very different.
Dr. Reath has also written a blog exploring the new options in depth.
We are so impressed with the results of this next generation of micro needling that we’ve virtually stopped doing fractional ablative laser in favor of three SkinPen procedures. Read about our staff’s favorite new treatment here.
Rather than exfoliating the top layers of the skin, the Youthboost Treatment works from the inside out with no excessive peeling, redness or downtime. Yet, you see instant results right after your treatment and long term benefits going forward. The secret is using probiotics topically on the skin. It becomes smoother and tighter with a more even tone and blemishes start to fade. Over time, your skin becomes stronger, has more volume, a more even texture and a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.
We just received two brand new CoolSculpting CoolSmooth applicators which are FDA-cleared to treat the outer thighs. This is great news because the outer thighs are an area we had been unable to treat previously. The new applicator is different than the traditional CoolSculpting applicators. Because there is no suction involved, the procedure does take longer. From the photos of the results we have seen, it’s going to be one of our most popular procedures..ever. Dr. Reath and CoolSculpting Technician Natasha Self explain more in the video.
Juvederm Voluma XC is a remarkable new hyaluronic acid filler that lifts, as opposed to the other products which fill in lines. You have probably seen the ads with a woman and a bunch of apples. While we don’t really groove on the apple analogy, we are thrilled with the results we’re seeing with our Knoxville patients. Since it received clearance by the FDA last year, it has become one of our “go-to” fillers.
