Juvederm Voluma Best of Beauty

“Best Anti-Aging Treatment”

There is a remarkable hyaluronic acid filler from our favorite family of fillers: Juvederm. 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, it has become one of our “go-to” fillers. We’re not the only ones singing Voluma’s praises. New Beauty picked Voluma as the “Best Anti-Aging Treatment” and Allure gave it the “Beauty Breakthrough Award”.

So why all the excitement about another hyaluronic filler coming to the market? What makes Juvederm Voluma XC so different from other fillers and the regular Juvederm XC we all know and love?

Allure Beuaty Breakthrough AwardVoluma Lifts and Lasts

Juvederm Voluma is the first and only HA filler cleared by the FDA to restore volume loss in the cheeks, a major factor in the aging equation.  Think about it like this: Juvederm Voluma XC lifts, as opposed to the other products which fill in lines.

Volume loss in the cheeks is the major reason we lose our youthful profile when we age.

Juvederm Voluma How it works

Plastic surgeons have known this for decades. A well-performed facelift actually repositions the cheek fat that sags as a result of gravity over time. Just to be clear, Voluma can’t reposition cheek fat, but its thicker cross-linked formula adds volume in a way that restores a more-youthful contour to the midface (or a more pleasing Ogee curve if you speak medicalese.) So if you’re not quite ready for a facelift but have started noticing some changes, Juvederm Voluma could be just what you’re looking for.

The subtle lift achieved with Juvederm Voluma XC can make a dramatic difference. Patients surveyed in the clinical trials said they look up to 5 years younger. The best part? Juvederm Voluma XC lasts up to two years.

A side-benefit of restoring volume to the cheek area is that it can also improve wrinkles and lines in other areas of the face, particularly the nasolabial folds and around the eyes. This varies from patient to patient depending on the depth and location of the wrinkles.

It’s becoming clear that the aesthetic non-surgical field is evolving. Rather than just chasing individual wrinkles and filling them in, we can now take a more holistic approach by improving the 3-D effects of aging in the midface first and filling the rest in later. So you can see how well Juvederm Voluma works hand-in-hand with its sister product Juvederm and why we are delighted to have it in our anti-aging arsenal.

How To Pick the Best Injector For Your Juvederm Voluma XC

Experience Matters with Voluma

2 Words: Flexible Cannulas
Not only are they safer for our patients, but they are less painful than needles with much less bruising. Our office was the first in town to inject with this new technology. . .You should never get fillers without them.

Here is a throwback Truth-O-Meter Tuesday Video where Dr. Reath and one of our nurse injectors talk about the then-new flexible cannulas and the difference they make to patients:


Good to Know

Allergan Black Diamond PracticeOur office has been awarded Black Diamond Status by Allergan. Allergan not only distributes Voluma and Botox, they also supply Natrelle implants and the popular eyelash-growing drug Latisse.

What does this mean to you? It means that we have lots and lots of practice helping patients achieve the results they want. It means that our practice is in the top 1% of all providers by volume in the whole United States. Pretty good for Knoxville, Tennessee right?

We are grateful to all our patients for their loyalty to our practice and kind referrals, which helped us achieve this honor. Thanks y’all.

Juvederm Voluma XC vs Radiesse

Juvederm Voluma is made of hyaluronic acid while Radiesse is calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA). Here is why we prefer the Voluma’s thick cross-linked hyaluronic acid to Radiesse’s calcium hydroxylapatite formula.

  • Voluma can be dissolved for safety reasons or if a patient decides he or she does not like it. On the other hand, Radiesse is composed of very tiny smooth calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres which form a scaffold that can’t be dissolved. Once injected, the body’s own collagen grows around the scaffold.
  • Voluma lasts longer. Clinical studies are showing that Juvederm Voluma lasts about two years as opposed to the 12-18 months of Radiesse.
  • Voluma’s thick gel formulation is softer and more natural-feeling than the toothpaste consistency of Radiesse. It injects easier with much less bruising and swelling. Frankly we are surprised at how little bruising and swelling we are seeing with Voluma when the patient has followed our easy instructions on how to prevent bruising. The flexible cannula sure does help!
  • Although Voluma and Radiesse cost the same ($900 per syringe), Allergan has the Allē Brilliant Distinctions Program for our patients which is a big cost-savings, especially when combined with the increased longevity of Voluma.

Both Radiesse and Voluma should never be used in the lips or under the eyes.

Here is Allergan’s Patient Education Video about Juvederm Voluma. It has interviews with patients who have had treatments and their Juvederm Voluma before and after photos.

Meet Melissa Chambers, R. N.


Aesthetic Nurse Injector

We are thrilled to have Melissa join our practice. For many of you, she needs no introduction.  Her reputation for technical excellence and elegance is forged by 21 years of injecting experience right here in Knoxville.

Compassionate, nurturing, and calming, Melissa takes the time to listen to patients while kindly and expertly guiding them towards the results they’re wanting to achieve.

All of her patients from “Nervous Nellies” to injectable veterans are impressed by her personalized approach to their care and her gentle touch with a needle.

Melissa started her career as an Aesthetic Nurse Injector back in 1998. Those were the days of bovine collagen before anyone had ever heard of hyaluronic acid fillers like Restylane and Juvederm.

In an area where new products are often coming to market, Melissa is uniquely qualified to choose the right product for each patient’s budget and goals, rather than wasting money on trendy, short-lived injectables.

In addition to her vast experience with injectables, Melissa’s background in dermatology and proficiency with lasers is a great asset to our patients. Together, Melissa, Christy, Dr. Reath, and Dr. Walker will evaluate the newest technologies and ingredients to give the best results to our patients.
