Tricked by the Doctor? -Montreal, QC

hi, i feel i got screwed by the doctor who injected juvederm on my cheeks today. he said he charges me $600 for juverderm voluma compared to other doctors who charge over $700 for it. yet when he opened the box i noticed it contained 2 syringes. he only used one on me and charged $600. after googling i realized new boxes of juvederm contain 2syringes of 1ml each instead of 1syringe of 2ml. i think i got screwed. can anyone tell me if what the doctor did today was honest if not.. what should i do?

I understand your confusion but you were not screwed IMO. Voluma used to come in 1 syringe of 2ml. But newer packaging comes in 2 syringes of 1ml each. $600 seems like a good deal for 1ml of voluma as it is typically around 800-900 per 1ml syringe

juvederm does not come in a single 2 cc syringe. 1 cc is the largest.

juvaderm xc comes in 2 sizes. 1 cc, and 0.4 cc. though it's not actually 1/2 of 1 cc, the 0.4cc is commonly refered to as a 'half syringe.' in the states, 1 cc costs around $500-$600 depending where you go, the half syringe costs $300-$400. you paid $600 canadian, which is around $500 u.s. if it was 1 cc, sounds like you got a fair deal. if it was the 0.4 cc, not that great a deal but be reminded in addition to the actual material, you're paying for the injector's experience and positive aesthetic abilities.
