Juvéderm® XC (Injectable Wrinkle Filler) - La Jolla, San Diego, CA*

35 Procedures ( View All )

Overview

Lines, wrinkles, and folds begin to appear on the face with age because the skin's natural production of collagen and elastin begins to slow. Injectable wrinkle fillers, like Juvéderm XC, are made with hyaluronic acid-base that mimics the natural substances in the skin that keep it smooth and supple. Dr. Richard Chaffoo, a triple board-certified plastic surgeon, offers many dermal fillers treatments, including the popular Juvéderm XC wrinkle treatment, at La Jolla Plastic Surgery for patients in the San Diego, CA area.

Juvéderm injections are often used to correct the nasolabial folds (the lines that go from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth) and other areas of the face with moderate to severe lines and wrinkles. During your consultation, Dr. Chaffoo will listen to your concerns and goals before assessing the condition of your skin and creating your best treatment plan with Juvéderm and other injectable treatments that will refresh and rejuvenate your appearance.

Procedure Technique

During your treatment session, Dr. Chaffoo will determine which particular filler formulation will best treat your areas of concern based upon the depth of wrinkles and the location of the treatment area. A typical Juvéderm treatment takes about 15 minutes after the initial consultation. These fillers are non-permanent, with results lasting from 6 months to 2 years.

Juvéderm FAQs

Juvéderm XC?

The results of Juvéderm XC treatments typically last 6 – 12 months and patients can schedule touch up treatments when they begin to see their results fading. Juvéderm XC is usually used to correct moderate to severe lines, like the "parentheses lines" around the nose and mouth.

Juvéderm Voluma?

Juvéderm Voluma XC is an injectable gel that can restore age-related volume loss in larger areas, like the cheek area, for adults over the age of 21. Juvéderm Voluma results usually last 1 – 2 years in most patients. See our Voluma procedure page for more information on this Juvéderm treatment.

Static Wrinkles?

Static wrinkles are lines in the face that can be seen when the face is at rest or without expression. By contrast, dynamic wrinkles only appear when the facial muscles are contracted to make expressions, like frowns and smiles. Static wrinkles are best treated with injectable wrinkle fillers, like Juvéderm, while dynamic wrinkles are best treated with injectable wrinkle relaxers, like BOTOX®.
