Juvederm or radiesse for lines around the mouth
I personally use much more Juvederm or Restylane for the lines around the mouth, especially in a first timer. If you like the results, a longer lasting filler like Radiesse can be used, but it is more firm and does not have an antidote if you're not happy with it. Radiesse also should not be injected into the lips. Most importantly, make sure to only see an expert injector such as a dermatologist or plastic surgeon to avoid any problems.

Juvederm or Radiesse
I prefer juvederm or any one of the Hyaluronic acids sto fill around the mouth becuase I can always disolve it if I have a problem.
Don't use Radiesse in the Lips
Radiesse Not For Lips
Please understand that Radiesse is a thicker material which might cause lumpiness in the lips. You should stick with Restylane or Juvederm for lip enhancement. However, for the nasolabial grooves either Radiesse or a Hyaluronic Acid like Juvederm or Restylane can work.

Juvederm or Radiesse for lines around the mouth
My choice is Juvederm around the mouth. It provides a long lasting, soft and supple correction, very natural in feel and appearance. I would not use Radiesse in a mobile area like the mouth. Radiesse can be too hard and lumpy in the soft tissue of the lips
The movement of the muscles around the mouth make the possibility of lumps with Radiesse very real because the movement could ball up the Radiesse over time. In addition, if any Radiesse migrates into the lips, the lumps are very visible.
Softer filler for the lips
Both types of fillers are very popular for restoring volume in the deflated face. Juvederm is hyaluronic filler that I like to use for finer superficial lines of the face and upper /lower lip augmentation.
Radiesse is a calcium filler that I like to use in thicker skin patients with deeper heavy lines. I do not inject this filler in the lips.
