There are several you can use. I personally like the Juvederm Ultra XC, as it goes in smoothly and it can be molded easily, which is what you want to create the very delicate and thin vermilion border (the border between your skin and your lips); sort of creating a lip liner effect.

Yes, there are many options to obtain a lip augmentation but the most common way to gain more volume on the lips is through dermal fillers. There are a variety of dermal fillers that can be used, but we recommend going with Restylane.

Yes, you can have the Restylane or Juvederm injected for lip augmentation. These products provide a more natural look and have great patient satisfaction. They last from 6 months to a year. Restylane comes in 1/2 cc syringes and Juvederm only comes in 1cc syringes. Depending on the lips and possibly other areas you want injected will help make the decision on which one we use.

There are several choices of fillers for lip augmentation. Some will use the patients own fat, however, hyaluronic acids such as juvederm, or restylane are the most common fillers. A new collagen product, Evolence, is also a choice.
It is important to select a filler that will look and feel natural in the lip. The lip must be soft and smooth in order to appear natural and some fillers are too stiff and may appear lumpy.
The reason that hyaluronic acids like juvederm and restylane are the most common is because they provide this natural look and feel. Patient satisfaction with them is high and they can last anywhere from 4 months to up to 1 year depending upon the patient.

While there are several different products that can be used for lip augmentation, we prefer Restylane or Juvederm. The reason is that these products have a more fluid consistency that works well for this sensitive area. Juvederm is actually preferred but because it only comes in a 1 cc syringe, it often contains too much product for the lips. Restylane on the other hand offers a .4 cc syringe, which typically is just about the right amount for the lips.
