I would start with one syringe of Juvederm to treat the lips. If you seem like you would like bigger lips you can always add an additional syringe to treat the lips. Best, Dr. Green
You will need more than 1 ml to treat your smile lines and lips. I would suggest that 1 ml be used for your smile lines and 1 ml for your lips. Have your provider inject the Juvederm into your lips and not on the border. You already have a pronounced border and you do not want to make that bigger.
Too much can be worse than too little
fantasy1111. Your smile is fine and your nasolabial folds are not too deep. I
recommend that you start with 1 cc of Juviderm for the upper lip and nasolabial
folds. However, there is no guarantee that this amount of hyaluronic acid will
be enough. Perhaps, an additional procedure may be necessary with 1 cc more. I
don’t recommend that you start with 2 cc of Juviderm because too much can be
worse than too little. Also I suggest turning your attention to your lip
angles. Therapy with Juviderm may lift up these lip angles.
Thanks for your question! Naturally, you have a beautiful shape to your lips. I don't think it will take a lot of Juvederm to accentuate this, but using less than 1 cc will make your results very subtle. I usually recommend a full syringe for lip augmentation. You can always start with 1cc and work your way up as you get the results you are looking for. Best of luck to you!
How much Juvederm is needed?
It all depends on seeing you in person. It also depends on your preferences about how big you want your lips. Keep in mind that a cc of Juvederm is only 1/5th of a teaspoon. This isn't much. I would put 1cc in and then evaluate. Add another at the same time if you want more enhancement.
Would 1cc of Juvederm be enough
Hi fantasy1111, from the pictures that you have provided, I think that you would not need much Juvederm in order to provide enhancement of the upper lip. Your nasolabial folds are not prominent as well so you would not need much. However, keep in mind, when using small amounts of a product, the results will be subtle. I would do an in person consultation with an experienced injector who can give you options.
Juvederm for nasolabial folds and lips
Based on your photos, the issues you are discussing with your nasolabial folds and upper lip are relatively small and would not require a lot of Juvederm to correct. Performing a physical exam is best to truly know how much Juvederm you will need. The amount you need is also partially dependent on what end result you are looking for.
In my opinion, you could likely use 2 cc's of Juvederm. One 1cc can be split between both sides of your nasolabial folds. The other 1 cc can be used for your upper lip as well as your lower. I feel that balancing out the upper and lower lips will enhance your result and give you a more balanced look.
