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.
"I truly had the best experience with La Jolla Skin! I was referred here by a friend who received micro needling and raved about how amazing her skin looked and felt after. This friend of mine recently moved to La Jolla from Beverly Hills and is definitely picky when it comes to all things beauty, so I completely trusted her recommendation. I had been wanting to do something more than just your standard facial to help the texture and appearance of my skin... acne scarring, pigmentation from the sun, large pores. I called to schedule my appointment and spoke with Jennifer who was SO sweet and helpful. When I went in for my appointment I have to admit I was a little nervous, but after consulting with Tracy I felt much more at ease. Nancy was the RN that preformed the micro needling and she too was amazing! She calmed my nerves and was just so so great. After having numbing cream on 30 mins prior to the micro needling I literally felt no pain or discomfort during the service. The machine is loud which sounds scary, but honestly it's nothing. My experience here was so wonderful and I look forward to continuing treatments with them. Highly recommend!!"- S.B. / Yelp / Sep 26, 2016
"Dr. Chaffoo is a great surgeon and is kind, gentle, experienced and has a great bedside manner. His staff (Nancy and Tracy) are equally as attentive and thorough. I felt safe and confident. I had my breast implants removed and a lift and a fat transfer to balance them. He did a great job. I am very happy with the results. I would recommend him to anyone."- S.E. / Yelp / Jul 25, 2017
"I just love coming here! Everyone that works here is not only extremely talented, but also very kind and welcoming. I've had microneedling, cool sculpting, vbeam, and a hydrafacial....I'm beyond happy with the results from each of these procedures! This whole team really takes time to listen to all of your questions and concerns, and patiently responds to each and every one. I've never felt like I was left feeling confused about anything, or that I had wasted my money on a service. I'm a client for life! Thank you all for being so awesome, I'd give you 6 stars if I could!"- N.R. / Yelp / Jul 17, 2017
"Very Natural Breast Augmentation, Wonderful Experience - Dr. Chaffoo is the utmost professional. I had a great experience with him from the start to finish of my surgery process, and continue to have a good experience. He is very attentive and caring, and I ended up with fabulous results from my surgery. I also appreciate that Dr. Chaffoo has me come in once per year for a check up, which gives me added peace of mind."- K. / RealSelf / Jul 11, 2017
"Great new experience - I went to La Jolla Plastic Surgery for Coolsculpting. It was a new experience for me but Dr. Chaffoo and his assistant Robert walked me through it and made sure I was comfortable through it all. I have already recommended them to several friends and I'm sure I'll be back soon. Thanks!"- S. / RealSelf / Jun 22, 2017
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.

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 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 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®.
