A lip filler can make your lips look more voluminous and plusher. This can give you the larger lips that you have always wanted if you blame your thin lips on your genetics, or it can give you back the volume that you once had in your lips if you lost volume due to the natural aging process. These fillers are temporary, meaning that you can easily go back to your old look if you do not like having larger lips. However, most fillers last a minimum of six months, and some can even last up to two years. Because there are so many lip fillers on the market today, we will give you some tips about how the many options you are presented with are different.
Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid filler, which is naturally found throughout your body, such as in your connective tissues and cartilage. Hyaluronic acid naturally draws moisture to itself. Therefore, a hyaluronic acid filler will give you the instant boost from its own gel and will also continue to improve the shape of your lips by drawing your own natural moisture to the area.
Restylane is another type of hyaluronic acid filler. The main difference between it and Juvederm is its feel inside the lips. Restylane has a more granular texture and may not be as soft as you would like. However, it is the ideal choice if you are wanting more defined lip edges. It may also be a better choice if you are older. Restylane and Restylane Silk are both good options.
