What is Juvederm?
Over time, your face changes in many ways from years of smiling and laughing, often causing parenthesis lines. This happens over time as your skin loses some of the building blocks (hyaluronic acid and collagen) that give skin its structure. Juvederm helps to smooth out these parentheses lines and allows for more youthful skin with a natural look.
Juvederm is an injectable filler that is made up of hyaluronic acid, a natural complex sugar that boosts skin’s elasticity, giving your face a smooth appearance. Juvederm is also used for enhancing lip volume and for reshaping cheek contours; it improves skin appearance by lifting and adding volume to the wrinkles and parenthesis lines in the treatment area.
Juvederm for my lips
Over time, most women find that their lips have lost volume and will thin; many of these women find that lip injections are the best way to replenish the lush, sensual appeal of full lips. Additionally, many people seek out lip injections because they naturally have thin lips and simply desire more fullness, or maybe they are simply seeking more symmetrical, even lips. Juvederm treatments can offer the desired lip-shape, structure and volume for not only your lips, but other areas of concern on your face.
For your lip injections, your lips and the surrounding area will be numbed; patients often comment that they cannot feel any pain, just the pressure from lips expanding. After the lips are injected, the procedure will “mold” your mouth after each injection to ensure that the Juvederm settled in the right places as decided during consultation. In a matter of minutes, your lip injections will be completed and you will not be able to quit looking at your new, beautiful lips!
After surgery the vast majority of swelling will go down in about 48 hours. You will find that you will feel some slight pressure when it comes to your lips for about 48 hours after your lip injections (such as putting on lipstick or kissing). The pain, however, is often compared to the slight pain of a sunburn or a bruise. After the initial 48 hours, though, you will feel nothing but love for your new, sexy, full lips.

How does it work?
Restylane was designed specifically for the lips and the lines around them. Often times as we age we begin to get lines and creases surrounding our lips. This is due partially because of the lips losing fullness over time, as well as what most people would consider "smile lines"
Restylane is a FDA-approved dermal filler made of a biodegradable, non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid (NASHA). Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in all living organisms and provides volume and fullness to the skin. Restylane is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid — a sugar that is already naturally present in your skin. This filler is very gentle and natural feeling and looking.
What sort of results should I expect?
The lips and skin surrounding the mouth are like other areas of the face. They show signs of aging as an individual gets older. This often results in lip thinning, lost shape and an increase in vertical lines above the lip. Restylane is designed specifically to provide natural-looking results in these areas. That’s why it’s made of smaller, smoother particles than those used in other products that are designed as fillers for the face.
In a clinical study of patients treated with Restylane or no treatment, the reports show that:
77% of patients treated with Restylane showed at least a one-point improvement in lip fullness (measured on on a 5-point scale) eight weeks after treatment.
59% of patients treated with Restylane maintained lip fullness six months after treatment
Restylane‘s unique particle gel formula, along with an ultra fine needle designed for improved accuracy, helps give you softer, more precise results. if the desire is to get . beautiful smile that is natural and beautiful then this is the ideal injection for you.
What about Restylane Silk?
An additional product in the Restylane family is Restylane silk. Though both products are made from hyaluronic acid, they are formulated for two different purposes. Traditional Restylane is fanstastic for signs of aging related to volume loss, including deep folds and static wrinkles.
Restylane Silk however has better longevity in the lips and produces beautiful results. The name says it all. It is a much smoother silky look when competed. Restylane Silk effects generally last at least six months and gradually disappears from the body. At that point its time to come in for another round.
