How Much Dermal Filler Do I Need?

Updated: Oct 4, 2021

How much dermal filler do I need is at the top of everyone’s mind when they first decide to get cosmetic injections to reverse the aging process.

It’s not exactly a cut-and-dry answer, however.


The amount of filler you need is based on the area being treated, the brand of filler you choose, and how much filler is in each syringe, as well as other factors like your desired outcome from fillers.


That being said, we can give you a general idea of how much filler you’ll need for certain areas of your face, and also inform you that most cosmetic fillers contain 1cc per syringe, which is only ⅕ of a teaspoon.


How Much Dermal Filler Do I Need for Cheek Contouring?


It may take 1 to 3ccs of filler per cheek of fillers such as Volume. So, you could need two to six syringes of dermal fillers for cheeks.


How Much Filler Do I Need for Under-Eye Circle Elimination?


Luckily, this area takes very little. You can most likely get remarkable results from just one syringe of Juvederm for both eyes!


How Many Syringes of Lip Filler Will I Need to Volumize?


Another small area that doesn't take much filler are the lips, which can look great with a little more than 5cc per lip with a lip filler such as Revanesse.


What About Other Areas?


Many other areas of the face will take 1cc per side, such as nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
