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 an amazing experience. Would do it again. - I was lucky to choose Dr. Mentz as my surgeon. I am 13 days out at this time so still early in the recovery process but I am very satisfied with my progress. I had the remainder of my sutures removed yesterday and am looking forward to the future with my new much improved face. Dr. Mentz and his "family" of caring staff are beyond what everyone should look for in a PS. I know I chose the best!! - - I was lucky to choose Dr. Mentz as my surgeon.

"Dr. Mentz is the best of the best! His skill and artistry is second to none. He is by far, the most caring doctor I've met, with safety Top priority. His office staff is just as kind and professional. After losing a great deal of weight, I had a lot of extra and loose skin. Even with Bootcamp 5 days a week and spin class, I was disappointed and embarrassed with my body, especially naked. Dr. Mentz did my lower face and neck In January. I can't, nor can anyone else see where the incisions were and it looks just as if I've aged very well. A month ago, Dr. Mentz did extensive body work. It hasn't even all settled. I'm still swollen, but I'm beyond thrilled. My body is already so much improved and I look so much better! My incisions are straight and low on my lower body. The part where tape is off, I'm amazed at my healing already. My scarring is going to be unnoticeable. My breasts are now perfect. I got improvement, in places I wasn't even expecting, nor do I know how Dr. Mentz pulled it off. Needless to say, I'm over the moon! I can't wait until I'm released to exercise and hit the level of fitness I was going into surgery. In surgeon shopping, Dr. Mentz is pricey, but with him, you get what you pay for. He is worth every penny. You can't go wrong with him as your surgeon. Dr. Mentz delivers incredible results!"- J.G. / Google / Dec 28, 2016
"Easy to schedule. Everyone that works in the office is a delight, very caring. They are quick to answer questions and concerns. They make the process, as easy as it can be. "- J. / Demandforce / Dec 18, 2016

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.
