Do you want fuller lips, to eliminate vertical lipstick lines, or to reverse the signs of aging? If so, you have two great options for lip fillers: Restylane® or Juvéderm®. With such similar products, how do you choose the right one?
The Differences Between Restylane® and Juvéderm®
Both lip fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which plumps the skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. Despite this similarity, each of them has a different job.
Restylane Silk® is used for lip augmentation and lip lines. If you want to change the shape of your lips and get rid of wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth, this is the product for you.
Juvéderm Ultra XC® plumps up the lips, so this is the product is great if you want more volume in your lips.
But wait, Juvéderm® has another formulation you should know about, and that is Juvéderm Volbella XC®. For those of you with deep vertical lines above your top lip, often called smoker’s lines, this product will reduce their appearance AND plump the lips, too. For more significant lip volume, Ultra XC may provide you with better results.
These products last up to a year or more, on average.
