Fuller, beautifully formed lips are meant to draw the eye and balance the proportions between the eyes, nose and mouth. Thinner lips draw attention from the lower half of the face, causing the eyes or nose to appear larger, even when they’re not. At Metropolitan Dermatology, our patients want to know what their options are when it comes to shaping and adding volume to the lips, while continuing to look as natural as possible.

We offer our patients two different types of dermal fillers created specifically to produce plump lips that stand out, but also complement all of your other facial features. The first option is Volbella by Juvederm, and the second is Restylane Silk. While both of these dermal fillers work well to offer a fuller lip shape, patients often find that one or the other work best for the results they desire for the look of their enhanced lips.

The Difference in Choosing Restylane Silk

Restylane Silk, like many other dermal fillers, is a Hyaluronic Acid-based gel formula that shapes the lips at the exact point of injection. Our physicians love the smooth look the lips have after an injection with Restylane Silk, since this formula makes it much easier to contour the tips of a cupid’s bow and the edges of the lip border. Other dermal fillers intended for the lips, such as Volbella, can move further beyond the point of injection in some patients, simply because it is created using a much lighter formula. Depending on how each patient responds to these dermal fillers for lip augmentation, the Volbella formula may be the best option. But for patients that want to see detailed curves in the lips that remain within the injection border without movement, Restylane Silk may be the more beneficial choice.

How do Restylane Silk injections work?

At Metropolitan Dermatology, Restylane Silk injections are done beginning with the top lip, where we inject the formula into the border of the lip and massage the gel into the tissue. Once the process is repeated on the other half of the lip, we begin injecting the bottom lip to match size and proportion. Since results are immediate, patients instantly see the lips beginning to increase in volume and shape for a youthful look.

The beauty of injections with Restylane Silk is that the area around the mouth often wrinkles as we age, and these fine lines and folds are much improved over time with each Restylane Silk injection. Restylane Silk lasts up to six months, and may last longer with each subsequent treatment.
