Juvederm Touch-Up - Quantity?

Does a Juvederm Dose Go Farther on Touch Up Than Original Dose? Don't Want to Pay for 2nd Vial.

Juvederm Touchup Quantity

Each patient is different in regards to the amount needed for optimal correction. Generally a touch up utilizes less product than the original dose, but it is based on the amount of correction you need.

Thanks for the question.

There is data to suggest that performing touch ups of Juvederm within a year of the initial injection will actually prolong the overall result significantly. Hence, in our practice, I emphasize patients get a modest treatment during the initial visit and return within a few months time for a touch up.

Juvederm additonal product

If you havee noticed that the injection of product gave a nice result, but you still need a bit more, than you may need a full syringe or you may not. But it is hard to say without an exam.

Touch-ups usually require less product

If the original correction was adequate, touch-ups require a much smaller volume. Juvederm comes in 0.8cc and 0.4 cc syringes and that may save you money.

If you need less as a second treatment, there is a smaller syringe of Juvederm Ultra that can be used and your cost could be less. Discuss this with your doctor.

How much Juvederm is needed for a touch up?

+1

This depends on how long it has been since the original injection and the area injected.  Juvederm can last up to a year, so if the touch up is done less than one year after the original injection, it is possible you may need less product.  However, by a year after the injection, most of the product has dissolved, and you may need similar amounts to the original injection.

In certain areas of low mobility, Juvederm may last a little longer.
