How much juvaderm would be needed to correct my smile lines?

Doctor Answers 9

1-2 ml of Juvederm for smile lines.

Like others, I would say 1-2 mls. I ml of Juvederm Volift will get the smile lines, however for a more natural look, the idea is to LIFT the lines, as well as reduce them. Replacing mid facial volume loss would give a better and more natural look, than just blunting the lines. If this were to be done, 2 mls would be needed. 

I would use 1ml Juvederm VOLUMA for mid cheek, and 1ml JUVEDERM Volift for lines. 

All the best

Thank you for your question in regards to Juvederm. Depending on your desired goals, 1-2 syringes of product would be sufficient. Starting off with less and bulding from there is the safest way to begin. To be sure, see two or more board-certified providers in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have treatment.
I hope this helps.

How much Juvederm would be needed? (photos)

Thank you for your question and for sharing your photographs.  Based on the amount of desired correction I would anticipate one syringe for both sides of your face.  This area typically requires one syringe per side,but it is usually wise to start with one syringe and add more as needed.  Hope this helps.

How Much Juvederm

Dear Jmon,

Thank you for your question. I think you are referring to your nasolabial fold lines. I would use 1/2 syringe to a full syringe total for both sides. I think you will have a very successful result. Juvederm is the best filler for you especially if it is your first time.

Good luck!

How much Juvederm is Needed

It is hard to tell from this photo. I'm not certain what the areas of concerns are. You have full lips and youthful philthril columns (the lines above the lips that can flatten with age)  An in person consultation with an experienced injector would be ideal.
