Filler for Facial Volumization -- Needs appropriate amount
Juvederm injections and longevity
Thank you for posting your photo. You would need two syringes at least to accomplish filling the lips and nasolabial areas and probably two syringes of Voluma to improve the cheeks. There is no possible way to have results that would make you happy with one syringe. If cost is an issue, which it is for most people, then pick the area that concerns you the most to correct first.

Juvederm in my lips, nasolabial folds, marionette lines and one cheek, one syringe. Is it Possible it was spread too thin?
Hope this helps.

What to expect after your Juvederm injection...
That being said, with only one syringe of Juvederm, I would not expect you to have much in the way of impressive results. You had far too many areas treated to appreciate dramatic results. For the majority of women in my practice, one syringe of Juvederm can be used entirely in the lips. Whenever someone tells me that they tried Juvederm (or any other filler) in the past, and it looked good for a week or two, they are basically telling me that they liked the swelling and they had their treatment areas under corrected.
Generally speaking, I would rather treat one single area to correction, rather than spread the product out over to many areas. When properly injected with good technique and appropriate quantity, you should expect your Juvederm treatment to last around a full year.
Juvederm spread too thin
Juvederm not lasting
I usually place at least one full syringe in the marionette lines alone, plus one or two in the smile lines, and another in the lips, and at least one to three more in the cheeks. I'm guessing you just need more volume, which means more syringes. If you only did one because of the cost, that might have been a mistake. If someone can only afford one syringe, we choose the area they need volume in the most and use the whole syringe in that area. That way, you can see and appreciate the improvement. When it's spread out over a bunch of locations, you really don't get much out of it.

Too little product, too many areas
So, it's no wonder that no particular area looks noticeably different after the swelling went down.
You'll need to use significantly more product, or treat fewer areas.
All the best,
