Tis the season for many things. During the month of December it seems like there’s a jolly festivity happening every day! Festivities usually are accompanied by treats. Santa’s favorite treats are the cookies that all the boys and girls leave for him on Christmas Eve. What’s your favorite holiday treat?
Most holiday treats are sweet. While this is wonderful for your taste buds, all that sugar can have an adverse effect on your skin. Consuming excess amounts of sugar during the holidays can cause you to have some skin issues such as:

In the world of soft-tissue fillers for the face, Juvederm Voluma injections are the revolutionary new product that was the first and only dermal filler to receive FDA approval for volumizing the mid-face and cheeks. The malleable gel used for the procedure is comprised of hyaluronic acid and is brought to you by Allergan, the makers of Botox.
Juvederm Voluma injections are specifically designed to address the hollowed areas of the face that come with aging as fatty tissue is absorbed into the body. Because Juvederm Voluma’s injections will not expand after placement, it takes the guesswork out of deciding on the proper dosage to inject, allowing for extremely precise results.
The list of FDA-approved dermal fillers offered by board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Evan Ransom is quite extensive. These non-surgical options are the next-generation solutions to facial lines and wrinkles and serve as fantastic alternatives to more invasive and costly techniques.
Dr. Ransom has spent years of training learning and operating around the face. A good injector has to be comfortable with the relationships of all the important structures that lie deep in the face, including arteries, veins, nerves and muscles. His experience with dermal fillers includes products such as Voluma, Restylane, Juvederm, Perlane, Belotero and Radiesse.
