Lip Injections: Restylane Silk vs. Juvederm

Don’t be fooled by the bad lip injection photos you see of celebrities with scary fish lips. Lip enhancement is an exciting beauty trend that adds fullness to your lips, which gives them a youthful, sexier look. As long as it’s performed by a skilled injection specialist, your results can look incredibly natural with spectacular anti-aging results.

The two main products used by specialists in lip augmentation are the new Restylane Silk and Juvederm. The results of the two treatment options are comparable. Your lips will be fuller and more luscious.

Both of these products use a special hyaluronic acid formula to enhance lips. They can also fill in laugh lines, wrinkles and creases in your face. What is hyaluronic acid? Hyaluronic acid is a natural part of your body that begins to break down with age, and dermal fillers can help restore this and rejuvenate the face. Restylane has been a popular treatment option for years, but its manufacturer Galderma has recently added a Restylane Silk line, which is designed specifically for lip augmentation and filling in the finest facial lines.

Juvederm, produced by the makers of Botox has been approved by the FDA and is widely used for lip enhancement and restoring facial volume. It costs a little more than Restylane, but the effects tend to last a bit longer. However, Restylane or Restylane Silk, also FDA approved, may provide better results depending on your personal needs.
