Kylie Jenner may have popularized full, pouty lips, but voluminous lips were an icon for femininity and seductiveness long before Kylie’s makeover. A lip enhancement may be a small-scale procedure, but its effect on one’s face is undeniable and enough to give your whole appearance a boost!
In order to achieve the perfect pout, though, you’ve got to go to the right place. At HZ Plastic Surgery, our lip enhancement procedures reflect stunning, natural-looking results that look and feel consistent with the person’s face.
To achieve these results, our ARNP Injection Specialist Michelle Fletcher turns to two lip enhancing injections: Juvederm and Restylane. If you’re looking into getting lip injections, here is everything you need to know about Juvederm and Restylane.
Types Of Lip Injections
Juvederm and Restylane are two different types of injectables that can be used for lip enhancements. Both of these FDA-approved dermal fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar in the body. When injected, these dermal fillers release the hyaluronic acid, which attracts and holds water at the injection site and acts as a cushioning agent. This added volume gives the lips the plumped appearance.
Juvederm And Restylane For Lip Enhancement
Juvederm and Restylane are very similar and can also be used to smooth wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth and lips. There are different kinds of each injectable, but the best types for lip enhancement are Juvederm Volbella and Restylane Silk.
The main difference between Juvederm and Restylane for lip enhancement is how long they last: typically up to 1 year for Juvederm, and up to 6 months for Restylane. Another subtle difference between the two injectables is that Juvederm Volbella is used to create smooth, full lips, while Restylane Silk is used to shape lips and remove lines by plumping the tissue.
In the end, what injectable you choose for your lip enhancement often comes down to preference, as some patients simply prefer the feel of one over the other. If you want more information on these two lip injectables, make sure to speak with our injection specialist Michelle Fletcher.
