How Many Cc's Are in a Juvederm Syringe?
Doctor Answers (4)
The juvederm syringes contain 0.8 cc of filler, the product with lidocaine make it about 1cc.
0.8 cc in a Juvederm Syringe
There is 0.8 cc in a syringe of both Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus. While Allergan claims that this is equivalent to what is in a Restylane syringe which contains 1.2 cc, most physicians doubt this claim. Allergan feels it fills better than its competitor.
0.8 cc in a syringe of Juvederm
There are 0.8 ccs in one syringe of Juvederm. Two tablespoons have about 30 ccs. The amount of water that binds to the Juvederm once it’s in your subcutaneous tissue is significant so the volume effect is not related to only 0.8 ccs of filler.

Juvederm syringe volume
Juvederm comes as a 0.8 mL volume syringe. A single tablespoon is equivalent to 15 mL so as you can see, a single syringe of Juvederm is only a fraction of the volume of a tablespoon. When the material is injected into the skin, however, Juvederm attracts a significant volume of water so it is capable of filling a larger volume in the skin than its volume in the syringe.
