If you're looking for a subtle lip filler that will give you natural-looking results, Restylane Kysse and Juvederm Violite are two of the best brands to consider. Both of these hyaluronic acid-based fillers provide supple, soft and voluminous lips with a light and soft finish. Depending on the results you're looking for, you may need to follow a treatment plan of three appointments in six months, with maintenance treatments every 6-12 months. Juvederm Volbella is another great option for those seeking subtle volume in their lips.
This FDA-approved filler has a jelly-like consistency that gently contours your lips without looking exaggerated. If you're looking for a dramatic statement, Juvederm Ultra Plus is the thickest formulation available and can be used to transform thin lips or make a bold statement with thick lips. No matter which filler you choose, it's important to consult a board-certified professional such as a dermatologist or plastic surgeon who has experience with lip injections. To avoid side effects, avoid strenuous activities, alcohol and exposure to the sun or sunbeds for at least 24 hours after injecting into the lips.
The aging process can cause the lips to lose volume and flatten out, so lip injections can help restore the profile of your lips and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The duration of the injection is usually shorter than other injection areas due to the smaller size of the lip area. However, if you have allergies or sensitivity to lidocaine or hyaluronic acid, your provider may not recommend injections into your lips.
