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.
"Dr. Mentz is nothing short of a magician. I went to him for an abdominoplasty in November of 2015 and his work has been life changing. His "bedside manner" is equal to his skill. I did not, for one moment, feel spoken down to or intimidated by his brilliance. He was kind, professional and has a great sense of humor. This man is an artist."- J.R. / Facebook / Aug 16, 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.
