At Governors MedSpa, our line of premium dermal fillers includes industry-leading products, like JUVÉDERM®, providing you an advanced solution to remedy the effects of aging without the risk of going under the knife!
The JUVÉDERM® family offers dermal fillers that plumps up wrinkles, and adds volume to hollows and flattened areas, to give a natural, more youthful appearance. The consistency of the gels have been perfected to smooth away wrinkles and folds in a way that mimics the plushness and softness of naturally youthful skin.
At Governors MedSpa our clients see immediate improvements in smile lines, laugh lines, and even the marionette lines, with visibly more volume and lift in the cheeks and neck areas.
Craving that Cupid’s Bow? Originally designed for restoring that youthful perk, JUVÉDERM® is widely used and known for lip augmentations, and perfecting your pout. Whether your concern is the lip border, evenness or volume, Governors MedSpa has got you covered.
The JUVÉDERM family of products include Ultra®, Ultra Plus®, Vollure®, Volbella® and Voluma®.
Ultra® and Volbella® are both great for the lips but they have different characteristics. Ultra® is great when lift or projection is needed. For example, if the white roll around the edge of the lip has flattened, or the ridges of the cupid’s bow need enhancement or for significant lip augmentation. Volbella® is great for softening fine lines around the lips or face, or light lip augmentation.
Voluma® corrects age related volume loss and provides a midface lift. Results can last up to 2 years.
Vollure® adds subtle volume to smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Results can last up to 18 months.
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC is injected into the areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds occur, lasting up to 18 months with optimal treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are the benefits of JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel?
Advanced technology for long-lasting results: JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel employs its unique manufacturing process to provide the highest concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid of any currently available hyaluronic acid dermal filler for long-lasting results. This advanced manufacturing process also creates a smooth consistency gel that flows consistently and easily into the skin and provides a smooth, natural look and feel. JUVÉDERM® is the only filler available with this smooth consistency gel formulation—other existing hyaluronic acid fillers are made of granular consistency gels.
How does JUVÉDERM® work?
JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel is a nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment. Your healthcare professional eases JUVÉDERM® under the skin using a fine needle to augment, or fill, the soft tissue of the dermis—the dense inner layer of skin beneath the epidermis—to add volume and diminish wrinkles and folds. JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel is used most effectively for those wrinkles and folds in the lower third of your face, like your “laugh lines,” “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds), or “marionette lines” (oral commissures).
What Can I expect During Treatment?
Because JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel is a simple, nonsurgical treatment, there is minimal recovery or downtime.
Before your treatment, avoid any medications that can prolong bleeding, such as aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDS), for at least a week prior to treatment to reduce the risk of bruising and bleeding at the injection site.
When you arrive: If this is your first visit, your doctor will ask about your medical history, including any allergies you may have or medications you may take, and will tell you more about treatment with JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel.
Determining your treatment needs: JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel is available in five formulations, including Ultra®, Ultra Plus®, Vollure®, Volbella® and Voluma®. Your doctor will examine the soft tissue of your face to determine which treatment will ensure your best results. Your healthcare professional may even take pretreatment photographs so you can see the difference after treatment!
Before the procedure: Although anesthesia is not required, your healthcare professional may use topical or injectable anesthesia to numb the treatment area first.
The procedure: Your healthcare professional will ease the JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel under your skin to augment, or fill, wrinkles and folds. Following the injection, your healthcare professional may gently massage the treated areas. The procedure is quick and easy. The injection itself usually takes only about 15 minutes.

Pre & Post Treatment Care
Before JUVÉDERM® Treatment
After JUVÉDERM® Treatment
Until there is no redness or swelling, avoid exposure of the treated area to intense heat (sun lamp or sun bathing) or extreme cold weather. If you have suffered previously from facial cold sores, there is a risk that the needle punctures could contribute to another occurrence. Ask your treatment provider about medications that may minimize a recurrence. Avoid taking aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, St. John’s wort, and high doses of Vitamin E supplements for one week after treatment. These agents may increase the risk of bruising and bleeding at the injection site. Avoid aesthetic lasers, microdermabrasion, or IPL over areas with JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel for a minimum of one week after treatment.
