How Many Areas Can a Full Juvederm Syringe Cover?

How far does a full syringe of Juvederm go? Would I have enough for my smile lines, top and bottom lip, and the crease in my chin?

The best way to get your answer-- evaulation by a board certified plastic surgeon.

One syringe of Juvederm is 1 ml of the product. The amount of “territory” that can cover depends on the depth of the wrinkles you want to treat and the amount of enhancement you desire of the lips. Typically upper and lower lips alone require 1 syringe depending if you just need the corners of the mouth, or if the nasal labial folds (the parenthesis) need filling in too.If you try to stretch 1 syringe out to too many areas, you will not get enough effect anywhere and most likely be dissatisfied by the results. The best answer is to be evaluated by a board certified plastic surgeon who can assess your specific situation and come up with a plan that can adequately address your concerns in the most cost effective way possible.

What can 1 syringe of Juvederm cover?

The answer of how much a syringe covers is really dependent on the depth of the area being treated.  In some patients, a 1/4 of a syringe will offer adequate treatment of a smile line.  In other patients, 2 full syringes may not be enough.  Discuss with your injector what product and estimate how many syringes are needed to achieve your aesthetic goals.

How much area can a syringe of Juvederm cover?

Good question. There are many factors involved in answering this question for you. The anatomy of your face, and where you are wanting injections. I would suggest being evaluated and the provider can give you specific answer based upon you anatomy.

Juvederm Syringe Coverage

Dear hello70:This is entirely dependent on your loss of facial volume and it is best to have this assessed in the form of a thorough facial exam.  All the best.

How far does Juvederm go?????????

It is impossible to tell without photos and preferably an exam.  One syringe of juvederm is adequate to augment lips.  Your best bet is to go see an experienced injector.  Best wishes 

Juvederm syringe coverage

Hard to give an opinion without photos. Often volume will help the soft tissue structures of the face. You may wish to globally volumize the face, or address a certain wrinkle.  Each patient is different. Choice of substance and placement may vary. Best to see an experienced injector. Tell him/her your issues and lifestyle. Together you will come up with an appropriate decision.

One syringe of Juvederm

It all depends on the severity of your lines and wrinkles. If they are quite deep, then you'll need more product to fill them in. As a result, a syringe may be able to treat all of these areas, but only if your concern isn't severe.

Amount of Juvederm Needed

The amount of Juvederm needed to correct an area depends on the patient. Most patients can achieve a significant improvement at the nasolabial folds with 1 full syringe, while others might need more. Normally 1 syringe is sufficient to fill the lips. It is unlikely that 1 syringe would be sufficient for more than one area. If you want a very subtle result, then 1 syringe could possibly do the job, but it also may not last very long. It is always best to have a consultation where you can be evaluated in person so that the amount of product you will need can be determined.

Juvederm Ultra Plus XC

Typically a 1 cc syringe of Juvederm Ultra Plus XC can be enough for most patients for treatment of the lips or the nasolabial folds. Some patients may benefit from 2 syringes.  Make sure that the person injecting the Juvederm is a board certified plastic surgeon. Nurse injectors just do not have enough skill, training, education, or expertise to inject fillers.

Juvederm Syringe and extent of Filler

Each syringe of Juvederm has 0.8cc in it which is approximately a little more than a teaspoon of product.  To have all of those areas would probably take two syringes.  The only way to get a true estimation is through an in person consultation.  Please consult a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with cosmetic injections for the best results.
