How much is a conservative amount of Juvederm or Restylane?

Hello Dr. Irwin, My sister is a client of yours and told me about Love it. I watched the juvederm injection video and was wondering how many syringes of juvederm you used. Am considering a filler and I too want to go conservative the first time around. My marionette lines are similiar to the patient you injected so trying to get a sense of what you consider conservative. Thanks so much.

Thank you for reading! I almost never inject fillers like Juvederm or Restylane at more than 1 or 2 syringes in a visit. I really recommend starting with one the first time unless your doctor really feels like you have a lot of volume loss. It’s surprising what can be accomplished with 1-2 syringes.


Hope this helps, Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
