Is one injection enough for eye area and mouth area
Start with one and go from there
I typically use 0.25cc of Restylane around the eyes. I think it is a better product for that area. Juvederm works great around the mouth, lips, and nasolabial folds. Half of the product would be used for the eyes. If the wrinkles around the mouth are minimal, you may be able to get away with 1 syringe. You can always ask your injector's opinion and purchase more product as needed.
I hope this helps.

Juvederm for the Nasolabial Area
Juvederm is the ideal filler for the area around the nasolabial area. Juvederm XC is thick and can last up to one year in this area. I do not recommend Juvederm for the delicate area under the eyes. Under the eyes I either use Restylane or Belotero depending on the facial structure of the patient. Without a photo it is impossible to suggest how much filler might be necessary. Please consult a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with these facial fillers for the best cosmetic results.

Injection amount and type
As for the lips, Juvederm is soft and is best for this area to augment. If the lips require a lift and fine line correction then small amounts of botox may be added.
