Kissably full lips might seem like a new trend this year, but let’s face it – they were never out of style. From Angelina Jolie to Kylie Jenner, it seems as though there are multiple celebrities who have the kind of lips that society loves.
But if your lips are a bit on the thinner side, fear not – lip augmentation can help you achieve the fuller lips you’ve always wanted!
Lip augmentation is a non-surgical procedure that uses a dermal filler to add temporary fullness and volume to the lips. This treatment can also help smooth away the appearance of lines and wrinkles around the mouth (also known as smoker’s lines). Results are almost immediate and can last anywhere from six to twelve months, depending on the dermal filler you use.
But that leaves an important question – Which dermal filler is best for lip augmentation?
There are two standout dermal fillers that can help you achieve better fullness and lip volume: Juvederm Volbella, Vollure, and Restylane Silk. Let’s take a look at each dermal filler now to see which one might be best for your lip augmentation procedure:
- Juvederm Volbella and Vollure: These dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid gel, which is used to gently but immediately add volume to the injection site. Volbella’s HA gel is smoother than other dermal fillers, which helps maintain a plump look without sacrificing natural mouth movements. Vollure also has some of Volbella’s smooth qualities but has a greater lifting effect and is better suited to more major lip corrections. There’s less swelling with Volbella and Vollure injections, so you’ll be back to your normal routine in no time. Results typically last 1 year.
- Restylane Silk: Like Volbella, Restylane Silk is a dermal filler that uses hyaluronic acid to plump up lips. What makes Silk such a great choice for lip augmentation is that it’s also been shown to smooth away smoker’s lines and other vertical mouth wrinkles. Results are similar to Juvederm Volbella, and they last about 6-9 months.
