Cheek aug=27G

Hi there! Juvederm works beatifully for augmenting cheek volume but is a slighty deeper injection than lips or eyes. I find a 27G needle is more precise for injecting while still minimizing injection pain (especially with Ultra XC) while avoiding a bent needle or overly slow injection process. Enjoy!

Preferred needle size for dermal fillers

My  choice is dependant on the skin thickness and location of the desired augmentation. For the cheeks, often I will use a 1" 27 gauge needle. For lips or very fine wrinkles I switch to a 1/2" 30 gauge needle. Regardless, a great result has more to do with the experience of the injector and not about the needle size.

Juvederm syringes do not have a needle permanently attached to the syringe so it depends upon the injector.  I will use anything between a 29-31 gauge needle which depends upon which Juvederm product and which area I am injecting.
