How much of an area can be covered from one milliliter syringe of Juvéderm Ultra Plus?

The real question is what areas are treated and how much of a correction is desired.  You can spread one syringe out as much as desired but the effects would be much less dramatic.  My advice for patients is to treat areas of concern with the appropriate amount of filler or limit the areas so that you will actually see an improvement.  Suboptimal treatment in many areas is not as ideal as optimal treatment in a few areas in my opinion.  Good luck and be safe.

How much Juvederm in a syringe?

Actually you can't cover all that much area with a single syringe.  The content is 1 ml which is only 20 drops, so for young people it may do both folds or one half in each lip, for older patients it does not go very far.

Thank you for your question. This is a difficult one to answer because it depends on the area being treated.  Usually one syringe of Juvederm Ultra Plus can fill in shallow nasolabial folds but if you have deep lines or a lot of volume loss to the face then one syringe will not be enough.  Usually people need minimum of two syringes per treatment.  Good luck to you

How far does 1 Syringe of Juvederm Ultra Plus go

It really depends on how much correction is needed and where. Results can also vary depending on the depth of product placement as well as location of the face. Most patients require anywhere from 1-4 syringes, and sometimes even more depending on amount of volume loss. 

1 syringe is 1cc which isn't a lot when placed under skin. Speak to your provider about the results you are looking for to estimate the amount of filler you will need.

How much of an area can be covered from one milliliter syringe of Juvéderm Ultra Plus?

This really depends on which area is being treated and how much volume needs to be added to create the correction that you are looking for. The greatest risk of dermal fillers is under-treatment. Most people who are disappointed by their filler treatments have not received enough volume and therefore don't see the results that they are looking for. Overtreatment in skilled hands is very uncommon. In my own Denver practice, I have found that most patients require somewhere between 1-3 syringes for complete correction of an area of the face. This does vary though based on the area and amount of volume loss or depth of the line/ fold that is bring filled.

I hope this information is helpful.
