Dr. Derek Jones is a Juvéderm® authority. Among his many credentials and honors, he served as the lead investigator on the FDA trial that led to Juvéderm Voluma™ XC’s approval in the United States.
With that approval came the opportunity for patients from Los Angeles to New York to treat age-related volume loss, specifically in the cheek area. The injectable filler is intended to give men’s and women’s mid-face regions a subtle lift, restoring youthful contours that diminish naturally as people age. Juvéderm Voluma™ XC’s effects can last for two years, making it a temporary but long-lasting solution for people looking to maintain a youthful profile.
As a filler, Juvéderm Voluma™ XC targets the three distinct areas that make up the cheek: the apex, the apple, and the hollow.
Juvéderm® XC is a related injectable filler, though this one is intended to treat what are commonly called parenthesis lines and are technically known as nasolabial folds. This smooth gel filler evens out moderate to severe wrinkles for about a year. In fact, Juvéderm® XC can also be used to smooth out vertical lip lines, corner lines, and marionette lines that form as healthy skin begins to lose its naturally occurring hyaluronic acid due to the aging process, exposure to the sun, and even genetics.
Simply put, hyaluronic acid is a moisturizer that keeps the skin pliant and healthy, so its gradual loss can lead to the formation of deep lines in the dermal layer, which acts as a sort of support structure for the skin.
Juvéderm® products, available at Dr. Jones’ Skin Care and Laser Physicians of Beverly Hills, restore that lost support structure, the absence of which leads to hollows, sunken areas, and deep wrinkles.
One treatment takes only about half an hour, but Dr. Jones fits a great amount of attention and technique into that short amount of time. His vast experience with Juvéderm products, coupled with his artistic eye, allows him to deliver natural-looking results. He draws on his history of serving as an investigator for a variety of Allergan products, as well as his global travels, scores of published articles, and training sessions to work with each patient’s unique facial structure and aesthetic goals.
Dr. Jones is a participating doctor in the Brilliant Distinctions® program, which rewards patients who purchase Allergan products, including Juvéderm® Voluma and Juvéderm Voluma™ XC. One syringe of Juvéderm® Voluma, for instance, nets 200 points, while two syringes bring in 400 points. Juvéderm Voluma™ XC has a similar points structure, up to 800 points for four syringes. These points can be redeemed for savings on a variety of products.
