Lip enhancement with Juvederm and Restylane
What are Lip Injections?
There are many types of dermal fillers that can be injected in your lips and around your mouth. But the most common fillers today are products that contain substances similar to hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body. It helps increase volume in your lips.
Uses of Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Hyaluronic acid fillers can improve the appearance of your lips by adding:
The effects typically last around six months. After that more injections are needed to keep the volume of your lips.
There are several hyaluronic acid fillers on the market. Among them are these products:
- Restylane, Restylane-L, Restylane Silk
- Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Juvederm Volbella XC
Comparing Restylane and Juvederm for Lips
Restylane and Juvederm are nonsurgical (noninvasive) procedures. Both are dermal fillers that contain hyaluronic acid to plump up the skin. They also contain lidocaine to alleviate pain during the procedure.
What is Restylane?
Restylane Silk is the formula used for the lip area. Restylane Silk was the first lip filler approved by the FDA. It promises “silkier, smoother, natural-looking lips.” Restylane Silk can be used for both lip augmentation as well as smoothing out lip lines.
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm comes in two forms for the lips:
- Juvederm Ultra XC is designed for lip augmentation.
- Juvederm Volbella XC is used for vertical lip lines, as well as slight volume to the lips.
Depending on what results you’re looking for, we may recommend one over the other.
Bruising and swelling are common reactions to filler injections and may be apparent for two to three days. How long these symptoms last can depend on where you’re getting the injections.
If you’re treating lip lines, expect these side effects to go away within seven days. If you’re plumping your lips, side effects can last up to 14 days.
