As a Preferred Provider with Allergan, Dr. Scott K. Thompson of Thompson Facial Plastics was one of the first among a select group in Utah to incorporate Juvederm Voluma XC into his practice and has noted impressive correction of mid-face volume loss in his patients.
On October 23rd, 2013, Allergan Inc. announced that Juvederm Voluma™ XC had been approved for use as a temporary treatment for volume loss in the cheeks associated with aging. Dr. Scott K. Thompson, M.D. of Thompson Facial Plastics was excited and eager to begin incorporating this hyaluronic acid into his practice. As a Preferred Provider with Allergan and notable Facial Plastic Surgeon with many years of experience in facial rejuvenation, Dr. Scott Thompson was chosen among a select group of doctors to introduce this filler in Utah. Results have been impressive and Voluma is quickly growing in popularity.
“I’m excited to be offering the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid specifically for the mid-face to patients with age-related and genetic volume loss. Voluma is an excellent addition to the line-up of non-surgical options from Allergan (others include Botox®, Juvederm Ultra & Ultra Plus XC) and only expands my options for facial rejuvenation and correction. Administration is safe and the results are instant, natural-looking and long-lasting. Current studies show this revolutionary product to lasts up to 2 years. This is significantly longer than any other hyaluronic acid on the market today,” said Dr. Scott Thompson, Double Board Certified Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon.
As the top facial plastic surgeon in Utah, Dr. Thompson has been administering Botox and dermal fillers daily for numerous years and has seen an increase in the popularity of such non-surgical procedures. “Continued use of fillers and Botox delay or prevent the need for surgical correction and are quick, safe and effective in treating age-related concerns.” said Dr. Thompson who is known for his Liquid Facelift through the use of injectables, in-office MACS-lift, and full facelift along with many other facial procedures.
Dr. Thompson often uses a micro cannula technique when placing filler to the mid-face and cheeks. The micro cannula is blunt-tipped which minimizes pain, risk, and side-effects. Through one small injection site, he is able to cover a larger area and greatly reduces the risk of bruising and swelling. Patients can return to work and normal activity immediately following the procedure.
Dr. Scott Thompson is dual board certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. He is known for his natural-looking results and meticulous skill as well as his genuine concern for patient well-being and satisfaction. He practices in three locations and five surgical centers along the Wasatch front in Utah.
