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?

Doctor Answers 14

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!

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.

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.

How far dioes 1 cc of Juvederm last?

 For adequate correction of the nasal labial folds, it will take one full cc of Jupiter. Upper and lower lips will also require another cc of product.

Juvederm coverage

That is really depended on the area that the injections are to be done and the depth of your lines.  We typically get 1 to 2 areas covered with a full syringe of Juvedrem (now 1.0 cc) but it may be sufficient for you to do the smile lines, top and bottom lip, and crease of the chin.  It is possible to do an additional smaller syringe (0.5 cc) of Juvederm or Restylane to get better coverage.

How much can one syringe of Juvederm cover?

Hi,

This is really dependent on both how deep your lines are, how much correction you want to achieve, and how many areas you want to improve.  I usually say for patients with lines above and below the lips, and for moderate lip augmentation, one syringe should be enough.  It is always best to start out with less and do more later if you want to!

Best,

Dr. Liu

It depends on how deep your lines are

If your lines are fine and not deep, yes. If you have moderate smile folds then possibly not. A common reason for disappointment in fillers is that the physician and patient were concerned of cost and not enough volume was used. Incomplete correction does not serve you well. Ask your physician who examines you how many syringes you will need and then make your decision to have it done.
