Innovations in cosmetic skin treatments are rapidly changing how we address various types of skin damage, aging, and loss of volume. Injectable treatments and soft tissue fillers have created a new class of injectable cosmetic therapies that create a noticeable, lasting improvement for patients who aren’t yet ready for surgery. Injectable BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers, including JUVÉDERM®, are top treatments at La Jolla Skin with San Diego-area women and men who wish to discreetly correct mild to moderate facial aging.
To find out whether injectables are right for you, visit La Jolla Skin. You can schedule a consultation with Dr. Susan M. Stuart by calling (858) 304-7062, or you can request a consultation online. Your facial features will look young and healthy again, and no one will ever be able to tell you’ve had treatment.
BOTOX® Cosmetic: Thanks to its effectiveness at temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause some wrinkles, FDA-approved BOTOX has established itself as one of the most sought-after non-surgical aesthetic treatments in the country.

Sculptra® Aesthetic: Using an ingredient called poly-L-lactic acid, the filler Sculptra Aesthetic creates gradual, cumulative results as it encourages your skin to produce more of its own collagen. The result? A long-term boost in the elasticity and resilience of your skin.
BOTOX for Hyperhidrosis: In addition to its cosmetic indications, BOTOX may also be used to safely reduce excessive sweating caused by a medical condition called hyperhidrosis.
Fat Transfer: Imagine reducing fat in an area of the body where it’s unwanted and transferring it to your face to create a more youthful appearance. Too good to be true? No, thanks to the fat transfer technique used by Dr. Chaffoo and Dr. Stuart. Fat cells harvested using a minor liposuction procedure can be used to restore facial volume as a longer-lasting alternative to synthetic fillers.
Dermal Fillers: Dr. Stuart’s selection of injectable dermal fillers can fill in wrinkles and add volume from beneath the skin, adding soft, youthful-looking plumpness. Today’s fillers can also be used to fill in depressed areas such as the cheeks and temples.
KYBELLA™: Nicknamed the “double chin shot,” KYBELLA is the only injectable treatment approved by the FDA to reduce submental fat — the neck fat that causes people to have a double chin. Most patients see their desired results after 2 to 4 treatments.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC: Using hyaluronic acid, FDA-approved JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC adds volume to cheeks that have lost their plumpness due to the aging process. VOLUMA can create a rounder, more youthful-looking profile and also add a discreetly lifted appearance that can improve the whole face.
Sclerotherapy for Veins: This straightforward, comfortable treatment option greatly reduces the appearance of spider veins on the legs.
