A new innovation for skin quality
The new HA injectable treatment delivers improvements in skin smoothness (absence of fine lines), hydration and elasticity, and is designed to last for up to nine months with just one treatment. Clinical data so far has shown significant improvements in skin quality for up to 6 months, and the clinical study is ongoing., Juvéderm® VOLITE aims to deliver results that last and eliminate the need for multiple treatments. It should be injected intradermally and can be used to treat the face, neck, décolletage and hands and contains the anaesthetic lidocaine, to enhance patient comfort.
Dr Patricia Ogilvie, Leading Dermatologist, Germany, says: "Juvéderm® VOLITE answers a real need for a treatment that delivers a healthy-looking glow. Combined with the fact that only one treatment is needed to achieve results, this product will be a game changer in my clinic. I believe that great skin can have a profound impact on patients' everyday lives - in particular their confidence. It goes far beyond aesthetics - when a patient is happy with how they look on the outside, this affects how they feel on the inside. Juvéderm® VOLITE is a genuinely innovative treatment option that I'm excited to be able to offer my patients."
