Juvederm® in Virginia Beach
With age, the skin can lose tissue elasticity and volume. This results in lax tissue that sags, and forms fine lines and deep wrinkles. As the fat deposits below the eyes and across the cheeks diminish, the face is left looking hollow, with sharp, tired features. Not only does the face look older, the appearance can become unhappy and unhealthy. Top Virginia Beach cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Kyle Choe, has an answer for the early signs of aging: Juvederm injectable gel.
The cutting-edge injectable provides immediate and dramatic results. This injection refreshes the appearance, eliminating fine lines, deep creases, and restoring facial volume in a quick, noninvasive procedure. Juvederm injections at The Choe Center provide long lasting benefits that can immediately take years off of the face.
Juvederm at The Choe Center
Juvederm is made from Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance that is responsible for healthy, hydrated tissues. Over time, HA naturally decreases, resulting in depleted facial volume and a loss of tissue elasticity. Smoking, sun damage, weight fluctuations, illness, and genetics can further expedite these changes.
Juvederm was formulated specifically to treat static wrinkles, or those caused by lax tissues. This injectable fillers can significantly restore lost facial volume and correct asymmetry. Juvederm plumps tissues and blends with the body’s existing collagen stores to provide long-term results. Juvederm’s smooth gel formula will improve Nasolabial Folds, Marionette Lines, and a loss of volume in the cheeks jawline for up to a full year.
Options in the Juvederm Family of Injectables
To meet a variety of patient needs, Juvederm comes in three different formulas, each varying in viscosity or thickness. The family of fillers can successfully treat a wide range of shallow lines, deep facial creases, and mild to severe volume loss.
- Juvederm Ultra XC: The ‘lightest’ version of Juvederm, Ultra XC is perfect for the elimination of fine facial lines.
- Juvederm Ultra Plus XC: Considered the ‘medium-duty’ member of the Juvederm family, Ultra Plus XC is designed to improve deep facial folds and mild volume loss.
- Voluma XC: Voluma is the ‘heavy duty’ injectable of this treatment family, made to restore significant volume loss and sculpt features for a youthful appearance.
Ideal Juvederm Candidate
If you are unhappy with the early sign of aging, then Juvederm may be the right treatment for you. The ideal candidate will be in good health, understand the treatment process, and have reasonable expectations for the results.

Although Juvederm can bring significant results for most people, it is not recommended in certain situations. Those with a history of allergic reaction to dermal filler injections may need to postpone treatment. A complimentary consultation appointment will be scheduled with Dr. Choe to determine if is right for your needs.
Dr. Choe completed my non-surgical nose job in less than 10 minutes. He was able to lift my droopy tip using juvederm filler and botox. He and his staff were very friendly and professional. I am very pleased with the results!
Juvederm Consultation with Dr. Choe
Prior to your Juvederm treatment, a brief consultation appointment will be scheduled with Dr. Choe. At this time he will perform a skin evaluation and review your medical history. Dr. Choe will discuss the benefits and limitations, then share before/after photos of his recent Juvederm patients, helping to illustrate the potential results. After careful consideration, Dr. Choe will determine if it is the right treatment for you. If so, a personalized treatment plan will be created.
Juvederm Injections at The Choe Center
The Juvederm procedure will take 15 to 30 minutes. Injections are applied to the predetermined location with a small needle, just above the underlying bone and muscle. While the injections are not painful, they can cause a fleeting pinching sensation. This injection contains Lidocaine, an anesthetic, keeping discomfort to a minimum. Dr. Choe can also add a topical numbing cream or local anesthetic for additional comfort.
Recovery and Results From Juvederm
No downtime is required after a Juvederm session. Patients can return to work or school the same afternoon. While mild redness and swelling are common at the injection site, these will quickly dissipate. The results from Juvederm can be seen immediately. Then, as the body’s collagen stores increase, the skin will gradually continue to improve. A repeat treatment will not be necessary for eight to ten months, possibly longer.
Potential Complications From Juvederm
Juvederm has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a safe way to restore volume in the cheeks and jawline, as well as improve fine lines and deep wrinkles. When performed by an experienced provider, like Dr. Choe, this injection can effectively plump tissues and sculpt facial features. Side effects are generally mild, although swelling, redness and bruising are common. These will diminish over the first several days. More serious complications are rare but can include facial asymmetry, infection, or an allergic reaction to the bacterial proteins.
