A Trip to Texas and the Latest Advancements in Dermal Fillers

On this episode of Curated Beauty, Jessica opens up about her recent trip to Texas, including who she met, what she learned, and the beverage she discovered and can’t wait to share with friends. She was invited on this trip by Allergan Medical Institute to train on the newest, FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler called Volux XC. This is intended to be used on the jawline to provide a contoured and defined look.

Using a firm product with high G prime that sticks together has some seriously magical properties. Injectors need to get training to see how it integrates and how it looks for themselves. During her visit, she had two hands-on training sessions back-to-back. There was a huge focus on education, science, and data.

For the third program of the day, they had a roundtable discussion at a steakhouse. They talked about business, educating patients, and relationship building. A short time later, at another place, Jessica learned about Ranch Water. Haven’t heard of it? It’s a cocktail including topo chico, a blanco tequila, fresh lime juice, and tajin on the rim of the glass.

This cocktail was truly invented by ranchers who wanted a spirited drink to enjoy after they ended their hard work days. Eventually it caught on, and you can find it at plenty of establishments, each offering their own personal twist.

The whole visiting experience was incredibly warm and welcoming. Even though she was far away from home, she felt comfortable and can’t wait to go back. It also reinforced her appreciation for education in the industry. Making important information easier to access is what it’s all about, and a big reason why this podcast exists.
