Types Of Lip Fillers

There are the different types of dermal fillers, each with their own benefits.

Juvéderm

Juvéderm is a brand of dermal filler used to add volume to your lips, as well as restoring lost volume in the cheeks and around the mouth. Juvéderm has a smoother gel formulation that allows it to move around and evenly plump the lips. There are various types of Juvéderm filler;  Juvederm lip fillers Juvederm Ultra XC and Juvederm Volbella XC are HA-based gel fillers. Juvederm Ultra XC is used to volumize the lips, while Juvederm Volbella XC is indicated for vertical lip lines.

The effects of Juvéderm are observed straight after the procedure, although you will need to wait for any swelling to go down before seeing the final result. On average, the results from Juvéderm last around for up to twelve months.

Restylane 

Restylane is a HA filler most commonly used to plump the cheeks and lips, but it is also used to reduce lines and wrinkles in other areas of the face. Restylane has a firmer gel consistency compared to Juvéderm, which means it maintains a firmer and more rigid position at the injection site. Restylane Silk has been specifically developed for lip augmentation. It’s important to note that Restylane cannot be used by those under the age of 21.

Much like Juvéderm, you can expect to see visible results right after the procedure. With any dermal fillers, you’ll need to wait for the swelling and redness to ease before seeing the actual results. The results from Restylane lip injections last around six months on average but may last for up to ten months.

Restylane Silk is another HA-based lip filler used to smooth and add volume to the lips. It’s also used to fill in lip lines around the mouth. Restylane treatments are for people age 21 and up who want plumper, natural-looking lips. 

Bellafill

Bellafill is a collagen lip filler containing a combination of bovine collagen and polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) beads. It is primarily used to treat acne scars, by filling out the skin while also stimulating collagen growth. Bellafill is not currently approved as a treatment for lip augmentation. However, it is sometimes used off-label to treat the lips, with immediate plumping results. The effects of Bellafill last much longer than any other filler alternative, lasting an average of five years.
