Filler is not a substitute for surgery
How much Juvederm do i need to properly correct volume loss and marionette line correction?
The good news is that the outcome was expected given the amount of volume loss. It is always better to start with 1 vial and not overfill, especially if this was your first session. I would return for 1-2 additional cc's.
It is hoped that the doctor had this discussion with you prior to the session.
Ml's of Juvederm
Thank you for your very valid question. It is very important that your face is thoroughly analyzed first by a Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon who is very well versed with facial anatomy and with injectible principles, before any injections take place. Namely your injector must identify your best vectors for lift (everyone's vectors vary somewhat) in order to use Voluma in the upper cheeks to indirectly lift your marionette lines. Subsequently the marionette lines are addressed with Juvederm, as is the pre-jowl area and the lips. In my practice a case like yours would take Voluma in the cheeks and two syringes of Juvederm to the marionettes and lips together. Sculptra could be used for your pre- jowl/ pre marionette area since that is so mobile, but Juvederm works well there too. I hope this information is helpful to you.
Best of luck in your quest !

ML of Juvederm for Noticeable Result
Typically 1-2 mL's of Juvederm are needed to have a noticeable result in the nasolabial area (marionette lines). If the doctor distributed just 1 mL for that area, plus the upper cheeks, it is not surprising that you don't see the results. When injecting into the mid face we typically use Voluma, and patients will use 2-4 mL's just for that area. I would recommend increasing the number of syringes she uses to get the result you are looking for. Good luck!
