Lakes Dermatology of Las Vegas will begin using Juvederm Volbella in the fall

Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) June 15, 2016

Dr. F. Victor Rueckl of Lakes Dermatology is pleased to note that Juvederm Volbella has recently been approved by the FDA. Manufactured by Allergan, Juvederm Volbella is an injectable gel filler that is proven to increase lip fullness and correct perioral lines around the mouth for up to one year. The FDA approval allows the use of Juvederm Volbella on adults over the age of 21, and patients can look forward to this new treatment being available this October.

Dr. F. Victor Rueckl of Lakes Dermatology is an Allergan trainer, which means that Lakes Dermatology will be an early user of Juvederm Volbella once it becomes available in the fall. Clinical trials have shown that Juvederm Volbella is both safe and effective. The most pivotal study was conducted with 168 subjects that were treated with Juvederm Volbella XC. In this clinical trial, a five point scale was used to evaluate the effectiveness of Juvederm Volbella for increasing lip fullness, and a four point scale was used to determine the effectiveness of the dermal filler for smoothing perioral lines around the mouth. The study concluded that a full two-thirds of those who had been treated with Juvederm Volbella showed improvement in both lip fullness and smoother perioral lines through a period lasting one year.

Dr. F. Victor Rueckl of Lakes Dermatology in Las Vegas notes, "I'm always thrilled to offer my patients a new treatment to help them maintain a healthy and youthful appearance. Juvederm Volbella is a dermal filler that is the first and only FDA-approved filler proven to increase both lip fullness and the smoothing of perioral lines for up to a year. This long time period for the effectiveness of Juvederm Volbella means less trips to the clinic. The clinical trials showed that Juvederm Volbella was as safe as the control element. The most common side effects to Juvederm Volbella are temporary responses at the treatment spot, such as swelling, tenderness, redness, itching, firmness lumps/bumps, discoloration, bruising, and pain. These potential side effects are typically resolved within thirty days. We will be an early user of Juvederm Volbella at Lakes Dermatology due to its proven effectiveness as well as the fact that I'm an Allergan trainer. My patients are already setting up appointments to take advantage of the availability of this new and highly effective dermal filler."
