With so many choices, how do you know which lip filler is best for you?
Here’s the scoop:
Restylane Silk for lips
Restylane Silk is the formula used for the lip area. According to their official website, 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.
Best for: Giving definition of shape, lift, and subtle volume correction for six to nine months
Juvederm Ultra or Volbella XC for lips
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, your provider may recommend one over the other.
Best for: A softer, plumper lip with a more horizontal spread than lift, but more volume, for up to a year
Volbella for lips
Volbella is a member of the Juvederm line of lip fillers from Allergan Plc but deserves a separate mention. It’s an FDA-approved injection and cosmetologists use it to soften the appearance of laugh lines and “smoker’s lines”. Volbella is also perfect for increasing lip volume and restoring a youthful plumpness.
Best for: Giving a soft, subtle, plump lip with a long-lasting effect. The skin appears to have a translucent, radiant appearance, making it look more youthful and rejuvenated
Restylane Kysse for lips
Restylane Kysse was specifically designed for the lips and has particles that are smaller than some of the other products
