Are you curious about lip filler? Been wanting to give it a try? If so, you’re likely wondering what the best lip filler is for fuller lips. Read on to learn about popular HA lip fillers, including Juvederm lip filler, which is the best option, and more. 

Lip fillers have grown in popularity in recent years. Lip fillers can add volume to your lips, fill in lines and wrinkles in and around the lip area, and help make the lips more symmetrical or balanced. If you’re in the market for lip injections, read on to educate yourself on lip fillers, including the types of fillers that work well to give you the pout you desire.

How does lip filler work?

Lip filler is injected into the upper and lower lip area. Once injected, the filler immediately adds volume to the lips. The level of volume added is based on the amount and type of product used.

Which lip filler works best?

There are several lip fillers to choose from. Many dermal fillers, like Juvederm and Restylane, are made from hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a naturally occurring substance in the skin that decreases as we age. The result of a decrease in HA is an increase in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and volume loss. When injected into the skin, HA fillers immediately add volume and fill in lines and wrinkles. The HA binds to water molecules to help add volume to the areas treated.

The benefit of using dermal fillers made from HA is that they are not permanent. Hopefully, you will work with a skilled lip filler injector, and you’ll love the results of your lip injections! In the event that you don’t love your lip filler, HA fillers can be dissolved with an FDA-approved injectable enzyme known as hyaluronidase. The enzyme is injected into the area that was treated with dermal filler to dissolve the filler.

How long does lip filler last?

Depending on the lip filler used, lip filler can last from six months up to a year. As the HA lip filler is absorbed by your body, you’ll need additional injections to maintain results.

What’s the difference between Restylane vs. Juvederm?

When choosing between Restylane vs. Juvederm dermal fillers for the lips, both work similarly. However, Juvederm has proven to last a bit longer than Restylane does. The length of time a filler lasts can vary based, in part, on individual chemistry and the type of filler used. Your dermal filler injector will work with you to determine the best filler to meet your needs and desired results.

What is the best lip filler for fuller lips: Juvederm vs. Restylane

Juvederm lip fillers

Juvederm fillers are some of the most popular dermal fillers on the market. From the Juvederm family of fillers, Volbella XC and Juvederm Ultra XC are great options to add volume to the lips. Volbella is also used to support minimizing the appearance of fine lines around the lip area.

Juvederm Ultra XC

Juvederm Ultra XC is a great choice to treat moderate to severe nasolabial folds (parentheses around your mouth and nose) and add volume to the lips. Juvederm Ultra XC provides a bit more “va-voom” plumping when compared to Juvederm Volbella XC. With this Juvederm dermal filler, results last for up to a year.

Juvederm Volbella XC

Juvederm Volbella XC won the 2020 NewBeauty award for the best filler for plumper lips. Volbella XC was designed to add subtle volume to the lips and to smooth vertical lip lines (perioral lines) around the lips. With Juvederm Volbella XC, results last for up to a year.

Restylane lip fillers

Restylane is another dermal filler that’s often used for the lip area. The Restylane family of dermal fillers includes Restylane Silk, which is used to add soft and subtle volume to the lip area and fill in lip lines. With this dermal filler, results last for up to six months.

What is a lip filler treatment like?

HA lip filler injections are a safe and minimally invasive treatment. Treatments often take 30 minutes or less once you’re in the treatment room.

The lip area is a sensitive area with nerve endings, so some might feel the injection at the point of entry. However, numbing cream and ice are often used prior to the injection, and lidocaine is mixed with the dermal filler. As a result, many report minimal to no discomfort during a lip filler treatment.

What can I expect after my lip filler treatment?

Lip filler swelling immediately following a lip filler treatment is common. It can take one to two weeks for the lip filler swelling to diminish and the filler to settle. So, it’s best to wait two weeks after a filler treatment to assess the final results. Once the lip filler settles, your lips should feel natural to the touch.

How much do lip injections cost?

The price of lip injections will vary based on the amount and type of filler used, the area where you live, and the provider you choose. The cost can range between $400 to $1500, with an average cost of $475 at a clinic like DermaTouch RN.

What are the “perfect” lip dimensions?

Generally speaking, the perfect, or ideal, lip ratio is when the lower lip is approximately 1.6 times the height of the upper lip (an upper-to-lower lip ratio of 1:1.6). With that said, we all have different sized lips.

If you’re seeking a natural-looking result, it can be best to have filler injected to mimic your lips’ natural shape. If you’re looking to increase symmetry and balance, your injector might choose to go a different route. 

The best thing you can do is have an open and honest discussion with your lip injector to ensure you get the results you desire. Your lip injector should also guide you as to what would work best for your overall facial structure and features.

What else can Juvederm and HA dermal fillers be used for?

Dermal fillers like Juvederm are used to treat other areas of the face, as well. Juvederm fillers can be used to add volume to the cheek areas, fill in lines and wrinkles around the mouth and nasolabial folds, and smooth out the chin and jawline.
