How Many Areas Can a Full Juvederm Syringe Cover?

How far does a full syringe of Juvederm go? Would I have enough for my smile lines, top and bottom lip, and the crease in my chin?

Consult with your surgeon for an estimate...

The management of facial contour irregularities varies from patient to patient and depends on the magnitude of the problem. In some cases, relatively small amounts of Juvederm can be used to address multiple anatomic areas. In more severe cases, larger amounts of Juvederm are necessary to adequately correct these problems.
It’s therefore important to carefully evaluate each patient and formulate an individualized treatment plan that addresses their anatomic findings and aesthetic goals.
In some cases, it may be possible to treat upper and lower lips, smile lines, and chin lines with a single syringe of Juvederm when the deformity is relatively mild. In other cases, multiple syringes may be necessary when deformities are more severe.
It’s important to discuss these issues with your plastic surgeon. Your surgeon should be able to estimate how many syringes will be necessary to address your concerns.

Juvederm syringe coverage

Hard to give an opinion without photos. Often volume will help the soft tissue structures of the face. You may wish to globally volumize the face, or address a certain wrinkle.  Each patient is different. Choice of substance and placement may vary. Best to see an experienced injector. Tell him/her your issues and lifestyle. Together you will come up with an appropriate decision.

Juvederm syringes contain 0.8cc - usually patients need two or more.

Thank you for your question.

The actual amount of Juvederm in a syringe is 0.8cc - that's about enough to make a significant different in one laugh line, or a moderate difference for both. To stretch it out and do the upper and bottom lip, plus the chin crease, would be tough, but possible. If you did this, you would be very unlikely to see a significant difference after your treatment except for your lips.

If I were you, just to be safe, I would do two syringes and make sure that the treatment you're undergoing will lead to results you will be happy with in all these areas.

Hope this helps!

A Single Syringe Can Go A Long Way

One syringe can go quite a long way, but it depends primarily on the amount of correction you want for each area. The depth of the creases, amount of volume in your lips and/or number of areas targeted can all determine how far a single syringe will go. Generally speaking, though, one syringe is sufficient for a moderate improvement of the lips, or a dramatic improvement of both smile lines.

How far does Juvederm go?????????

It is impossible to tell without photos and preferably an exam.  One syringe of juvederm is adequate to augment lips.  Your best bet is to go see an experienced injector.  Best wishes 

The best way to get your answer-- evaulation by a board certified plastic surgeon.

One syringe of Juvederm is 1 ml of the product. The amount of “territory” that can cover depends on the depth of the wrinkles you want to treat and the amount of enhancement you desire of the lips. Typically upper and lower lips alone require 1 syringe depending if you just need the corners of the mouth, or if the nasal labial folds (the parenthesis) need filling in too.If you try to stretch 1 syringe out to too many areas, you will not get enough effect anywhere and most likely be dissatisfied by the results. The best answer is to be evaluated by a board certified plastic surgeon who can assess your specific situation and come up with a plan that can adequately address your concerns in the most cost effective way possible.

One syringe of Juvederm

It all depends on the severity of your lines and wrinkles. If they are quite deep, then you'll need more product to fill them in. As a result, a syringe may be able to treat all of these areas, but only if your concern isn't severe.

Amount of Juvederm Needed

The amount of Juvederm needed to correct an area depends on the patient. Most patients can achieve a significant improvement at the nasolabial folds with 1 full syringe, while others might need more. Normally 1 syringe is sufficient to fill the lips. It is unlikely that 1 syringe would be sufficient for more than one area. If you want a very subtle result, then 1 syringe could possibly do the job, but it also may not last very long. It is always best to have a consultation where you can be evaluated in person so that the amount of product you will need can be determined.

Juvederm Ultra Plus XC

Typically a 1 cc syringe of Juvederm Ultra Plus XC can be enough for most patients for treatment of the lips or the nasolabial folds. Some patients may benefit from 2 syringes.  Make sure that the person injecting the Juvederm is a board certified plastic surgeon. Nurse injectors just do not have enough skill, training, education, or expertise to inject fillers.

Number of Areas a Juvederm Syringe Can Treat

How far a syringe “goes” depends on the area requiring correction as well as the patient's individual aging process. If one syringe is used to treat multiple areas you may find that you do not get your desired level of correction and that the results do not last as long as they should. If you are expecting subtle results one syringe of filler could reasonably be used for the areas you are describing.
