Juvederm in Charlotte, NC
Sometimes combatting the signs of aging is as easy as replenishing key components of your skin. Hyaluronic acid keeps the skin youthful by attracting and binding with water, and now you can restore your hyaluronic acid levels with Juvederm®. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Klein, and board-eligible plastic surgeon, Dr. Andrew Kochuba, specialize in Juvederm® treatments for men and women in Charlotte, Salisbury, Harrisburg, Concord and surrounding areas of North Carolina.
What is Juvederm®?
Your skin develops lines and wrinkles for two reasons:
- Muscle contractions pinch the skin (known as “dynamic wrinkles” and treatable with Botox® and Dysport®)
- Your body produces less of the key nutrients your skin needs
Hyaluronic acid, along with collagen and elastin, is critical to young skin because it attracts and binds with water. This not only keeps the skin hydrated, but also adds volume to the skin. As hyaluronic acid levels fall, your skin essentially collapses inward. By replenishing your hyaluronic acid levels with Juvederm® treatments, you give your skin the support it needs to remain free of lines and wrinkles.

Who is the Ideal Candidate for Juvederm®?

- Lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth, such as those that extend from the outer edge of the nostrils to the corners of the mouth
- Poorly defined lips
- Little to no volume in the cheek area
What Do I Need to Do Before Juvederm®?
Before you have your Juvederm® treatments, schedule a consultation with Dr. Klein and Dr. Andrew Kochuba. As highly experienced plastic surgeons with a patient-centered approach, they are uniquely qualified to advise you about the ways that Juvederm® can help you look younger.
How Long Does It Take to Perform Juvederm®?
Your first Juvederm® treatment will take 30 to 60 minutes. Maintenance treatments take 15 to 30 minutes.
What to Expect After Juvederm®
Juvederm® is injected into the layers of skin along the lines and wrinkles, so you may have some localized pinpoint bleeding, bruising, swelling and tenderness for the first two to three days.
Will I Have Scars After Getting Juvederm®?
You will not have scars as a result of your Juvederm® treatments.
When Will I See the Results?
The gel formulation of Juvederm® instantly adds volume to the skin, so you will see some reduction in lines and wrinkles right after the treatment. The hyaluronic acid goes to work to draw more water to your skin. This process provides gradual improvements that can take a few weeks to produce full results.
How Long Will the Results of Juvederm® Last?
The best part about using Juvederm® as part of your anti-aging regimen is that the results last up to one year.
How Much Does Juvederm® Cost in Charlotte?
Because Juvederm® is an elective treatment, the cost is not covered by medical insurance. We will explain the cost of treatment after your consultation with Dr. Klein and Dr. Andrew Kochuba. We offer several payment options for your convenience, including cash, check and major credit card. Financing is available through CareCredit®.
