Dermal Fillers: The Realistic Numbers Of Syringes Required To Create The Desired Outcomes

An important consideration to bear in mind when factoring in the price of a procedure is the quantity of material required to create a lift or to re-volumize sagging facial tissue. One syringe of Juvederm contains 1 cc or 1/5 of a teaspoon; a half syringe, or 1/10 of a teaspoon, is too small a volume to make a noticeable difference in virtually all cases.

One syringe would be sufficient for a lip enhancement in a young person, or a top-up on recently completed facial treatment; but a 50 year old woman with significant mid-face sagging or jowls will require a minimum of 4-6 syringes for the basic foundation work, 2-4 additional syringes for finessing chin & jawline or the periocular (eye) area, and may require additional syringes for lips, nose, temples or creating a forehead or brow lift.
