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(R) VOLITE is a genuinely innovative treatment option that I'm excited to be able to offer my patients."
