Pucker Up for the Mistletoe: The Difference Between Juvederm and Restylane

lip injections guildford ctWhether you have someone who you’ve been kissing under the mistletoe for years or if you are trying to capture someone new’s attention this holiday season, make sure that you have the sexiest pout possible and consider getting lip injections. As a temporary way to plump up your pout and enhance your natural look, injections like Juvederm and Restylane are popular amongst most patients. But what is the difference between these two injectables? Read on to learn more.

The first thing to know about these fillers is that they are both made up of the same ingredient: hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is an organic sugar that exists in your living cells and works alongside collagen to help plump up your skin while adding moisture to it as well. Now that you know the common thread between Juvederm and Restylane, let’s discuss the differences.

Juvederm

One of the main things that patients like about Juvederm is that it has a smooth texture which means that patients w ho get Juvederm won’t have to worry about massaging bumps out of their lips after injections. Additionally, Juvederm contains 35% more hyaluronic than Restylane which means that it lasts significantly longer— up to a year in most patients— meaning that you won’t have to worry about maintaining your lip injections quite as frequently.

Restylane

Restylane is notorious for having a more granular texture. However, because of this granular texture, it makes Restylane more pliable, which means that it’s easier for doctors like Gary J. Price to mold and manipulate in your lips. If you are looking to add a substantial amount of volume to your lips, then Restylane is going to be the better option.

Filler for Your LipsThere’s no denying that a woman with full, voluminous lips is sexy. If you have naturally thin lips or have lips that you simply would like to enhance, then you may want to consider contacting Gary J. Price in order to learn more about dermal fillers. As two of the most popular fillers on the market, both Restylane and Juvederm are two dermal fillers that are popular amongst most patients.

Similarities

The first thing to know about both Juvederm and Restylane is that they are both made up of the same ingredient: hyaluronic acid.

However, although Juvederm and Restylane are composed of the same ingredient, they act a bit differently and contain different doses of it.

Not only is Juvederm a bit more pliable but Juvederm also contains a higher dose of hyaluronic acid, which means that it will laser longer. Additionally, Juvederm can not only fill in those pesky fine lines and wrinkles, but it can also be used to add a bit more of a plump look to your lips as well.

Restylane

If you are looking to add more volume to your lips in a big and noticeable way, Restylane is the better choice. By being cohesive after being injected, Restylane stays in place which makes it easier for Dr. Gary J. Price to work with.
