Restylane vs. Juvederm for Plumping Lips
Meanwhile, Juvederm comes in 2 main forms, Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus. Both products now come in “XC” form as well, which means that lidocaine has been added to the product for an anesthetic effect with injection. Both products are similar in how they spread out into the tissue a little more than Restylane. They also tend to absorb more water when injected, and so Juvederm injections can swell more than the Restylane products in general. The difference between Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus is the size of the particles, with Juvederm Ultra Plus having a larger particle size, and thus a larger duration of action. In my experience, Juvederm Ultra typically lasts 6-9 months while Juvederm Ultra Plus typically lasts 9-12 months. The Juvederm products are both soft enough to be injected into the lips and spread out in the tissue nicely to give a very natural result. These are usually my first choice for plumping lip volume.
The most important point when considering any of these treatments is to find an injector who you trust and who you feel best understands the look that you are trying to achieve. A good aesthetic eye is very important when treating the lips in order to maintain normal anatomic features while adding volume so that you keep the lips looking proportional and get the most natural-looking enhancement.

Actually, a combination approach might be best
Juvederm vs Restylane for lip augmentation in a young model
If you have a busy modeling career, you will want to avoid the "just injected look" vs the "I almost need filler" cycle, since it can come back to haunt you in that photos taken over time show differences in lip size.
If you have one doctor do all your work, and you have it done at frequent intervals, you can avoid this problem.
We prefer Juvederm XC because it clumps less.
But as a number of the doctors have already indicated, pick a top doctor, not the product, if you want your best result.

I won't answer your answer completely, as I have limited Juvederm experience.
I would recommend that you NOT use Restylane. In fact, I advise you to forget Restylane. Restylane is a great product don't get me wrong. The company who makes it is Medicis, and l they came out with a new product called Perlane which is very similar to Restylane in all practical regards, except that it lasts twice as long, and costs about the same.
Alternatively, you may want to opt for lip augmentation. I have added a link to my site so that you can see the procedure.
Scroll down to the lip aug video. By the way, I would be interested in feedback on the video if you have time. Thanks
Good luck to you.
What is the best filler to enhance my lips?
Lip augmentation is one of my favorite procedures as it can give the face a very youthful and appealing appearance. There is no one filler that is best for everyone, but that also means there are options to help everyone achieve their specific desired goals for their lips. Lip fillers last anywhere from 6 months to two years depending on the specific product used.
There is a full range of desires when it comes to lip augmentation. Often when patients come in for the first time they are often worried of looking “over done” or having the dreaded “duck lips.” However just like a breast augmentation, if patients could change anything after their lip augmentation they wish they would have gone bigger!
Lip augmentation is an art as you can mold and shape the lips. The perfect lip augmentation is about giving the lips a natural, sexy appearance. Just making the lips bigger is not beautiful. Enhancing the size while creating a shape makes the face look more youthful. Lip augmentation can create a cupid’s bow and improve the overall shape of the lips.
Restylane Refyne and Restylane Silk are both great products for patients that want a subtle augmentation to their lips. The Refyne is a new product that last up to a year giving patients a lasting result.
Juvederm Ultra Plus and Restylane and the workhorse products for fillers as they have been around for years and patients tend to love them. They last about a 6-months in the lips.
Resylane Defyne and Juvederm Vollure both last about up to a year. Both of these products will give patients a little more volume and fullness to their lips. The Vollure and Defyne will also last up to a year giving patients a lasting results the will love for their lip enhancements.
Juvederm Volluma is the longest lasting product on the market and lasts up to two years. It is typically used for a mid-face lift. However, in patients that want a full luscious appearance to their lips this can be an incredible option.
Lip enhancement can be done as a simple procedure in the office. Patients come to the office have numbing cream applied to their lips. I give them about 15 to 20 min to let the cream take affect and then the actual process of the lip injections takes about ten minutes.
Patients can return to work or their daily life immediately after the simple office procedure is completed.
Please consult with your board-certified plastic surgeon about your lip augmentation options.

Lip Augmentation, Restylane or Juvederm? Make Sure to Choose the Right Cosmetic Physician!
Hi Paris in London,
Congratulations on your signing. Now for lip augmentation.
More important than Restylane or Juvederm, you must choose your physician most carefully. Creating beautiful lips is an art of sculpting requiring not only injection skills, but a keen aesthetic sense.
Juvederm is the more popular choice, but many patients will ask for and prefer Restylane in their lips. You should make sure that you start out subtlely, as you can always add more.
Remember, it's not the type of filler but the type of physician you choose to inject your lips that will determine their ultimate beauty. So choose carefully. Good luck and be well.
Restylane and Juvederm for lip enhancement
Both of these products can do a nice job for lip enhancement. The main difference is in who is doing the injection. There is more difference in this than between the products. Some patients believe that Juvederm "feels softer."
Both will work well
The only concern is that you have a modeling agency andyou do not want to have a major change. You want to have half syringe at a time to make sure that you like the result. The good news is that if you did not like the result, both Juvaderm and Resthylane can be reversed.
Fillers for the lips
You are choosing 2 great products that are commonly used in the lips. Your doctor can help you decide which is best based on what look you are going for. The great thing about either one of them is that should they overdo your lips, or your modelling agency prefers the old you, it can be reversed within minutes with an injection of a enzyme that will dissolve the product. I treat models and they usually do very well with more subtle changes (remember most agencies are highly selective and would not choose you should you need more cosmetic procedures to look good).
My advice is to go with the "less is more" as you can always put more in and you may be surprised how good your lips look with just a small amount of product. Lastly, Angelina's lips only look good on certain faces. If you do no have some of her other facial features, you may look unnatural with her lips so beware and pick a doctor who is an artist at what they do. Ask to see an example of a lip they have done and see if you like it.... then proceed as you feel is best. Good luck
