Most fillers come in a syringe with 1mL of product. That is approximately 1/5th of a teaspoon. A small amount of product can go a long way, but many times optimal results require more than one syringe to obtain. Anyone who tells you they can solve all your problems with 1 syringe of filler is full of crap. We generally say a good rule of thumb is that one syringe is required per decade of life to replace lost volume. So if you’re 40 you can expect to need at least 4 syringes for optimal results. My personal results came after 4 syringes were placed over approximately 6 months time. It’s a process. It took you decades to lose the volume, it’s going to take a little while to build it back.
