Will one syringe of JUVEDERM be enough to fill NL lines+...?

I know one syringe of JUVEDERM is .8 ML. I have very very shallow NL lines that are actually improving. (I'm doing facial exercises, using LED, and vaculifter.) But there's still a very faint line.

I also have a little tear trough dent going on.

Would one syringe of JUVEDERM be enough to fill the tear troughs and the NL lines?

My doctor didn't think it's going to be enough. He's charging $425 per syringe.

However my friend who goes for JUVEDERM all the time said that she only needs 1/2 syringe for her NL lines but that's for a refill. Mine will be the first time.

I asked my doctor if I can buy 1.5 syringes, but he said I'd have to buy 2. If I didn't need both, whatever is left will be thrown away. I think it's like throwing money away. My friend was able to get her nurse to keep the other half for her refill 3 months later.

Does anyone have an experience with not using all the product in one or two syringes? What did your doctor do?

The first treatment definitely takes FAR more than a refill.

Most doctor's offices do not save it, but if you are a regular they will sometimes do it for you. You could always ask if you could take it home and bring it back next time if they don't want to keep track of it. But I seriously doubt if they would go for that.

Your other option is to go with a filler that comes in smaller tubes like Restylane (they have 2 sizes, while Juvederm comes in 1 size only).

I have used one syringe of juvaderm for both nasolabial lines and two tiny lines at my mouth corners and had some left over. That is all I have ever used, one syring whether it is restylane or juvaderm. I have even used a half syringe of resty for the NL lines. You can try it and alwyas purchase another IF you need it.

I am very much like you- very small nasolabial lines. I had Juvederm done once about a year ago and only got one syringe even though 2 was recommended. It did what I wanted for about a month, and then just looked the same. I think I'll try it again sometime with two syringes.

thanks ladies. Good to know that my doctor is not all that strange that he wants to throw away what's not used.

I'm on the fence about the NL lines. Some days they practically disappear, but some days are just a little more noticeable. I am not sure why. But there's big improvement over the last 2-3 years.

Is $425 a syringe reasonable for juvederm? (Is the price EVER going to come down?)

I have seen anywhere from 450-400 a syringe. Sometimes you can get a discount on two.

Bira,
I wonder if the price will ever come down too. It's so much for two vials every 6 months.

Yikes...I used to pay $600-$650 for Juve Ultra Plus. Shock My PA that does my lips changed offices, so I'll be interested to see if the price drops when I go on Friday.

Here, it runs about the same as the resty, sometimes cheaper at my derm, but lasts over a year, generally speaking. I have done it twice now, and the first one lasted about 16 months but I think it would have lasted longer had I not had the CO2 laser and lost some volume.
The second time was in October and it is still going strong after 8 months.

I started calling around and trying to get a bit more educated on Juvederm.

I learned that Juvederm Ultra Plus costs more (around $600 a syringe) but it is supposed to last more than a year. However, the reg Juvederm is recommended for the Tear Troughs since the skin there is thin. That means to me that the Ultra Plus must not be as soft and may stick out like a sore thumb. Not ideal.

I read somewhere on the net that someone got Juvie and it lasted her only one month. That's incredibly short. I would be angry if I paid $400 to $600 and it lasted only one month.

Has that happened to anyone here?

From almost all of the reviews I've read, I wouldn't bother with the regular Juvederm, go with the Ultra Plus.

I'm 49 and have (or had) deep NL folds, got the Perlane injected above the folds, in the cheek area - this lifts up the lines as opposed to just filling them in. It's been a month and I see it wearing off but it's still a big improvement (in the meantime I'm doing so many other things to help build up collagen). It was very expensive, but you know what, it gave me back my life in a big way, worth every penny. Better than invasive surgery. And I think I can get away with a top up now and then without having to spend so much.

I think the length of time it lasts really depends on the person. There are many different stories. However it does seem a bit odd that you would need 2 syringes for such minor lines.

Getting a second opinion might help.
