How many syringes of filler do I need?

Okay, you’ve finally made up your mind to get that filler treatment that you’ve been thinking about for a while. You have searched up med spas nearby that offer the treatment. But how many syringes of filler do you need and how much would it cost?

As one of the top providers of dermal fillers including the Juvederm and Restylane products in the Plano and Frisco area, we constantly receive this question. And you are not going to like this response – it really depends! It depends on the area(s) that you are hoping to treat and the volume loss you experience in that area.

Areas such as lips are are relatively easy. Most patient would only require one syringe of filler to plump their lips while still looking natural. For those with very thin lips or those looking for a much fuller appearance, we sometimes treat them with another syringe of filler in a follow-up appointment.

Other popular areas such as the cheeks and jawline are more challenging to guess how many syringes of filler you would need. This is because it entirely depends on your facial anatomy and the volume loss that you have experienced. At U Med Spa, our goal is never to overfill, but to help restore what was already there and subtly contour your facial shape. Cheeks including the undereye area can require anywhere between 2 syringes to 4 syringes. Contouring your jawline including improving the appearance of jowls is going to require 2 to 6 syringes. Someone in their 30’s to 40’s with minimal volume loss will likely require 4 syringes of filler to rejuvenate their appearance. Someone with more significant volume loss can require more than 6 syringes for full facial balancing. See below our full guide for fillers.

Now it may sound like a lot of syringes, but did you know that one syringe of filler is only the size of a blueberry?

How long does it last?

Fillers should last anywhere between 9 to 12 months depending on the area(s) treated. Some areas tend to retain fillers for longer than others. Fillers in areas such as cheeks and temple will last longer than areas such as marionette lines and smile lines because we tend to use these areas more frequently in our facial expressions.
