There are a number of fillers such as Juvederm and soon Volbella which can last longer than Restylane. However, there is nothing that you can do to make the injection itself last longer. Best, Dr. Green
Adding small amounts of Botox to lip filler treatments can maintain results
Longer duration Restylane for Lip augmentation
Restylane is a clear filler made up of fragmented strands of a hydrophilic (water-loving) molecule hyaluronic acid (HA) naturally occurring in the skin and human tissues. While the molecule is the same, the production of the gel is different by various manufacturers and therefore provide:
- More or less water attraction for more or less fill, and
- Smaller or larger units for more or less duration.
- Niacin lip balms and other histamine releasing agents will maintain hydration as well.
- Also, the location of injection will change the length of duration.
New studies confirm what I have observed for many years; Botox will both reduce the muscle activity around the HA molecule and prolong it. Botox also has a direct effect on reducing the degradation of the HA molecule and Botox around the lips may further enhance lip appearance.
Always consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for your best evaluation and options!
I hope this is helpful. All the best!
