How Many Cc's Are in a Juvederm Syringe?
Doctor Answers 4
The juvederm syringes contain 0.8 cc of filler, the product with lidocaine make it about 1cc.
0.8 cc in a Juvederm Syringe
There is 0.8 cc in a syringe of both Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus. While Allergan claims that this is equivalent to what is in a Restylane syringe which contains 1.2 cc, most physicians doubt this claim. Allergan feels it fills better than its competitor.
Juvederm syringe volume
Juvederm comes as a 0.8 mL volume syringe. A single tablespoon is equivalent to 15 mL so as you can see, a single syringe of Juvederm is only a fraction of the volume of a tablespoon. When the material is injected into the skin, however, Juvederm attracts a significant volume of water so it is capable of filling a larger volume in the skin than its volume in the syringe.
