Juvederm didn't do much What now?

Juvederm is a great product for a little volume and to soften a few lines but a 1 ml syringe isn't very much product. Keep in mind It would take 5 syringes to fill a teaspoon.  So the issue is whether you got enough in the right places to make a noticeable difference?  Often it's a combination approach that may include something surgical to be cost effective.

Fillers do not treat excess skin.

Fillers help restore volume to the face but as you have found out often the cost is toouch for what you get.  See an experienced plastic surgeon to have a proper evaluation of your face.

Fillers

Fillers are over used and that is why some people are unhappy by the results. In the lips juvederm will not last long.

from the picture posted, though limited, you may need a face lift and fat transfer.

I think most of what you are unhappy with in the picture is related to volume loss.  The best to treat this would be Sculptra or a fat transfer.  I think you need a consulation with an experienced Dermatologist or Plastic surgeon that has expertise with this so that you are advised correctly.
