Juvederm Ideal Candidates
Fight against the signs of aging with the Juvéderm collection of injectable wrinkle fillers. From treating lines and wrinkles on the face to giving you full, plump lips, Juvéderm treatments provide beautiful, natural-looking results. Juvéderm injections, offered by Houston, TX plastic surgeon Dr. Edward Lee, can be used alone or combined with other nonsurgical treatments to meet your aesthetic needs and goals. Juvéderm injectables are made with synthetic hyaluronic acid (HA) that is designed to restore the skin's natural supply of HA and collagen for supple, healthy skin.
Rejuvenate your appearance without the time and expense of surgery with Juvéderm XC and Ultra XC:
- Juvéderm XC smoothes moderate to severe wrinkles on the face, including parentheses lines and other wrinkles around the mouth and nose. The results of Juvéderm XC last up to one year.
- Juvéderm Ultra XC adds temporary volume to the lips in the upper lip, lower lip, or both while improving the appearance of vertical lines on the lips. The results of Juvéderm Ultra XC last up to one year.
The difference between the more known and common Juvéderm fillers and the newer versions, such as Vollure and Volbella, lie in how the molecules of hyaluronic acid are arranged. Dr. Lee also offers these two newest members of the Juvéderm family of fillers. Specifically, these fillers can be differentiated by their spreadability:
- Great for lip lines and lip volume, and to smooth out areas under the eyes, Volbella contains the thinnest, most spreadable gel for these delicate areas.
- Vollure, on the other hand, combines a healthy medium of spreadability to treat areas such as the nasolabial folds while still allowing the face to make expressions and movements.

Juvederm Procedure Technique
The best candidates for Juvéderm injectable fillers are men or women who have facial lines and wrinkles they want to correct without surgery. Juvéderm can also help if you have naturally thin lips or age-related volume loss in your lips. Juvéderm injectable treatments are great if you want to improve your facial appearance without the expense and downtime of facial plastic surgery (facelift, brow lift, eyelid lift, lip implants).
"Dr. Lee is very personable! He is always very thoughtful and kind. If you are looking to get a procedure done, he will be able to kindly guide you through the process. Very seldom do you meet a doctor who is as considerate and relational as Dr. Lee!"- J.B. / Facebook / Mar 12, 2017
"I just happen to run across Dr. Lee on the internet searching for a Dr. to do a breast augmentation and possible tummy tuck. Had never even considered having this before and was very nervous. Went to one other consultation with another Dr. in the Houston area and found out he was actually only a dermatologist and wasn’t board certified in plastic surgery. I decided to get another quote and I am so glad that I did. Even though I lost $500 dollars that I had put down with t...he first Dr.. i let Dr. Lee know what it was that I was looking for and he let me know right away what I needed. He could have charged me more and even could have said that I needed more than what I did but he did not. He did not have to do a lift on me for my breast and he did not have to do lipo in me either and in both cases he could have told me I needed this and I would not have known the difference - but he didn’t. I was impressed with the fact that he has been doing this for only 7 years would be up to date on the procedures and possible new ways of doing these procedures rather than a dr that had been doing this for 20 plus years. Dr. Lee was worried due to the fact that I was a smoker. He almost seemed as if he may not even be interested in doing my surgery due to this fact. That was even impressive. He could have cared less and just seen dollar signs but he didn’t. I let him know I was super serious about this and would stop immediately if he would get me right in to do surgery so that I wouldn’t change my mind like I had in the past due to other obligations. He told me I would have to wait 6 weeks and the. He could do the surgery if I stopped smoking then. I promised. He kept his part of the bargain and so did I. I am proud to say that I have now had surgery almost 2 weeks ago and still haven’t smoked. Won’t go back. Thanks to Dr. Lee and Mrs. Eva I won’t go back to smoking. My surgery went flawlessly and the results are amazing. The Dr. knew exactly what I needed and did a perfect job. He eased all of my fears and it went way better than what I expected. Would recommend Dr. Lee to anyone wanting to enhance their looks. They offer a lot of different services and I would let them do any of them on me if I needed. Now Mrs Eva if the Drs right hand in my opinion. She was amazing and could have ignored me because god knows I ask her every question under the sun regarding my procedures and she handled me with nothing but respect. When she didn’t have too. I love her to pieces and she makes you feel so comfortable during the entire process."- M.S. / Facebook / Mar 22, 2020
"10 days post “mommy makeover” and have to write a review because of how smooth the process was and how wonderful Dr. Lee is. Great bedside manner and superb skill level. You can tell he takes pride in his work and strives to get his patients the best possible outcome. Recovery process has been smooth thankfully. I was back to work 1 week post surgery. Also, Dr. Lee really listens to your concerns and works with you as a team. He even called me over Christmas to review a post op concern I had emailed him about. Eva in the office is also wonderful. Highest recommendations!"- D. / Google / Dec 28, 2019

Plan Your Procedure
Youthfully Smooth and Full
Juvéderm injections typically only take 15 – 30 minutes depending on the number of areas being treated. The patient's face will be cleaned and injections spots will be marked. To minimize discomfort during the treatment, Juvéderm fillers contain lidocaine (a local anesthetic). After their treatment, patients can resume their normal routine, but strenuous activity like exercise should be avoided for at least 24 hours. Patients should avoid touching their face after their injections to avoid moving the filler into unintended areas.
Patients should see an immediate improvement after their Juvéderm treatment, but they may also see mild swelling or bruising in the treated areas for 7 – 10 days after their injection. The results of Juvéderm injections last up to one year, but patients typically find that their results last longer after a few years of treatments. Talk to your plastic surgeon about when to book a touch-up or full treatment to maintain your results.
