Juvéderm XC and Juvéderm Voluma are composed of hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in the body that keeps the skin looking fresh and supple. These gels can be used to fill in wrinkles and folds and to restore volume and suppleness to the face and lips. The Juvéderm family of hyaluronic-based fillers restore a youthful appearance to the skin by adding fullness to hollow areas and by filling in moderate to severe wrinkles. Juvéderm injectables are commonly used to fill in lines around the mouth and those that extend from the nose to the mouth. When injected into the lips, cheeks, and hands, they add volume for a younger, softer appearance. Dr. Henry Mentz, a triple board-certified plastic surgeon in Houston, offers Juvéderm XC and Juvéderm Voluma at his MedSpa for patients who want to extend the results of their plastic surgery and for patients who aren’t quite ready for surgical intervention.
"I had a double chin that bothered me for years. Dr Mentz performed liposuction under my chin, it was such an easy procedure... and I can't believe I didn't do it years ago! No scars, the recovery is about one week. And I look younger! Thank you Dr. Mentz!!! Best plastic surgeon ever."- D.P. / Facebook / Apr 21, 2017

Not to discount previous services but Mentz services and results are on a much different level in comparison. Trust me! An extremely picky, private athlete and not one to display personal information such as this to the world. From the office visit to the actual place of surgery... Impeccable. So far I'm more than happy!"- H. / RealSelf / Mar 24, 2017
"I have been a patient of Dr. MENTZ for more than 15 years. He is an artist...very gifted. He is extremely kind and thoughtful. His staff is conscientious, diligent and very responsive. Choose Dr Mentz and you will be ecstatic with the quality and aesthetics. Also HIGHLY recommend Renee at the spa for fillers, Botox excetera. She is just the best."- L.F. / Yelp / Mar 01, 2017
"Dr. Mentz is incredibly talented. I was so comfortable with him and his vision for my "mommy makeover". He has such a calm and kind nature and he was exactly the surgeon I was looking for. "- N. / Demandforce / Feb 23, 2017

During your treatment session, Dr. Mentz and his aesthetic nurse specialists 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.
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.
