At Primera Med Spa in Lake Mary, outside Orlando, FL, JUVÉDERM is one of our most popular fillers. It is ideal for folds and wrinkles around the nose and mouth, which are often some of the first and most prominent signs of aging. This hyaluronic acid-based filler adds subtle volume and softness for incredibly natural-looking results. FDA-approved JUVÉDERM helps our clients see younger-looking versions of themselves without invasive surgery.
Planning Your JUVÉDERM Treatment
Hyaluronic acid, the active ingredient in JUVÉDERM, is a substance that occurs naturally in human skin. Although it has several functions, one of its primary purposes is to keep skin and connective tissues healthy and supple. Hyaluronic acid is partially responsible for giving young skin its plumpness and resilience. As we age, hyaluronic acid in our skin diminishes, and the fat beneath our skin breaks down, leading to laxity and sagging. Unprotected sun exposure and other environmental damage can exacerbate this process, which is partially why daily sunscreen is so important to prevent premature aging.
JUVÉDERM is excellent on its own or as a companion to other injectable treatments, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic or JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC. Although each patient is different, our injectors typically use JUVÉDERM to treat the following complaints:
- Nasolabial folds, sometimes called "parentheses" - the lines that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth
- Vertical lip lines
- Marionette lines
- Fine creases beneath the eyes
Millions of people around the world have trusted JUVÉDERM to restore their youthful appearances. At Primera Med Spa, our injectors are excited to help you develop a customized treatment plan that can have you looking and feeling better than ever - without surgery.

What to Expect
Prior to undergoing your first JUVÉDERM treatment, you'll meet with our injector for a brief consultation. During this time, he or she will talk with you about your aesthetic goals and review your relevant medical history to ensure the product is safe for you. If you're a candidate, you'll typically undergo your JUVÉDERM treatment during the same appointment.
Your injector begins by gently cleansing your face to remove makeup and other impurities. Because JUVÉDERM comes pre-formulated with lidocaine, a type of anesthetic, no topical pain reliever is necessary. Your injector administers JUVÉDERM to your treatment areas in a series of very quick injections, each lasting only a moment. After your treatment, your injector may offer you a cold compress to help ease swelling and residual discomfort. You should be able to return to your regular activities immediately following your appointment, which typically takes about 1 hour.
Enjoying Your Results
There is no measurable recuperation or downtime after a treatment with JUVÉDERM - simply return to your normal activities as you would after any other appointment. For the first several days, you may experience mild reactions at your injection sites, including swelling, bruising, redness, tenderness, or itching. You can typically conceal any discoloration with makeup. To minimize some of these symptoms, you may be asked to discontinue certain medications and supplements, especially those which thin your blood, for several days prior to your procedure. Our staff can give you more comprehensive guidelines when you contact us to request a consultation.
The results of your JUVÉDERM treatment can last between 9 months and a year, depending on the treatment area and how your body interacts with the filler. Your injector can give you a more specific idea of the results you can expect.
