Stop wrinkles in their tracks with Juvéderm injections by our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Jay Shenaq. Juvéderm is an FDA-approved facial filler typically used to reduce wrinkles and increase volume in different areas of the face. Composed of hyaluronic acid, Juvéderm lasts up to 1 year and allows patients to maintain a soft, natural appearance. Through the use of Hylacross technology, which is made of a less granular consistency, Juvéderm improves the overall look of one’s face and skin by minimizing smile lines, creases, wrinkles, and brightening the overall appearance of the skin. Juvedérm is an outpatient treatment (for patients 21 years of age or older) administered in our office in Sugar Land, TX or in downtown Houston at the Galleria Cosmetic Center.
Juvéderm is an outpatient treatment typically administered right inside our office. Similar to other injection treatments, the injection sites will be marked on your face using a washable pen. The amount of Juvederm administered is dependent upon the depth of the wrinkles and location areas. Some patients will need more or less of the product depending on the desired results. Typical treatments last approximately 30 minutes, but some can take up to an hour.
"I met Dr Shenaq when my best friend had breast cancer. He took so much time to carefully explain the procedure to her. I was so impressed with this surgeon that when I came down with breast cancer in my left breast I immediately made my appointment with Dr. Shenaq. I had a double skin sparing mastectomy with reconstruction, and yes this plastic surgeon did a phenomenal job! Dr. Shenaq and his staff took such good care of me, they are very understanding, and really care about you. I could not be happier with the outcome of my surgery. Westside surgical center is where my surgery took place. If you want phenomenal patient care, this is the place to be. Dr. Shenaq with his particular care, really made me look and feel good about myself quickly."- L.M. / Yelp / Nov 03, 2015
"Dr. Shenaq and his staff provided exceptional care before and after my surgery. Everyone in his office has been extremely helpful throughout this journey. He is a perfectionist. After having a bilateral mastectomy Dr. Shenaq performed breast reconstruction. He did an excellent job. He is completely gifted and skilled in his field. He is also straightforward and honest with his expectations of the end results. I feel so fortunate to have had Dr. Shenaq as my surgeon from the initial consultation throughout the entire process. I am so pleased with the end results of my new breasts. I would definitely recommend him to others."- P.S. / Yelp / Jun 14, 2018

"I was introduced to Dr. Shenaq after being diagnosed w/ breast cancer. I had a unilateral mastectomy & my remaining 'good' breast was equipped with a 23 year old implant. Dr. Shenaq definitely had his work cut out for him to fix me up & make me look symmetrical again. Not only did he replace what the cancer had taken, he fixed the good breast with a new implant. This man is a genius and an absolute perfectionist! His caring nature is unmatched. I look better now than before my diagnosis!"- S. / Healthgrades / May 29, 2018
Individuals who are seeking to treat wrinkles without having to undergo surgery are usually good candidates for Juvéderm. Depending on how deep and how many wrinkles are being treated typically determines the filler product, but Juvederm works well for patients who wish to improve moderate facial lines or augment the lips. Those with deeper lines and creases may be better suited for thicker filler material.
What to Expect
Patients should expect to see immediate results following their treatment. Juvéderm contains the anesthetic lidocaine, so patients should not experience discomfort, although there may be some redness at or around the injection sites after the treatment has been completed. The dermatologist may gently rub the areas of the face to help the filler spread evenly and smoothly. Treatment is expected to last up to a year and many patients return after that time frame.
