Juvederm Ultra For Lips
Juvederm is the hyaluronic acid dermal filler sold by allergan for the purpose of enhancing the deeper lines formed on the face--most notably, the nasolabial folds.

Best treatment for nasolabial folds/smile lines? Juvederm, Restylane (dermal fillers) or Radiesse? How much do they cost? Which lasts longest & has least side effects?
Combination: The naso-labial folds are formed when the cheek tissues start to shift downward. Often, when the cheeks are lifted, filled and contoured with Radiesse (dermal fillers) and Voluma the naso-labial folds soften. However, the folds can be addressed directly with Juvederm. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Radiesse (dermal fillers) and lips: Radiesse should not be injected into the lips because of the hardness that it can create. Radiesse is not reversible also. HA based dermal fillers are the best choice for lip augmentation. If you are looking for a more permanent way to augment your lips, then consider fat transfer. Hope this helps. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
Which fillers last longer: restylane, (dermal fillers) juvederm, teosyal, esthelis, aquamid, or bio alcamid?
I avoid "permanent": Though Aquamid (and others)is not available in the US, it is in other countries. (if it's being offered in the US you should avoid that office altogether). I generally recommend that my patients avoid permanent fillers though, especially when they are young like you, because you don't know how your face will change over the next 20 years. You may end up with volume where you don't want or need it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is radiesse (dermal fillers) more popular than botox? Botox has been around for a while but I have never heard of radiesse (dermal fillers) until recently. Is radiesse (dermal fillers) more popular than botox?
Is radiesse (dermal fillers) a good choice for lip augmentation? I've heard that it gets stiffer/doesn't stay as soft as some fillers. Would that make my lips look unnatural?
Bioform : Bioform medical inc., the manufacturer of radiesse, strictly warns against the use of the product in the lips. Moreover, Radiesse does not have fda-approval for use in the lips. When injected into lips, Radiesse can trigger an inflammatory response, leading to the formation of palpable and sometimes visible nodules, lumps, and bumps, which could occasionally lead to permanent deformation of the lips. Juvederm, perlane, restylane, (dermal fillers) or fat grafting would be a much better for lips because these products are softer and more pliable. Radiesse; on the other hand, gives very satisfying results when injected into deeper fatty tissue layers, such as the cheeks, chin, and the nasolabial folds. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Is sculptra a good choice for lip enhancement? I'd like something long-lasting to plump up my really thin lips. Will sculptra work?
What's the difference between perlane and restylane (dermal fillers)? They seem to have the same ingredients. So why is my doctor recommending perlane over restylane (dermal fillers)?
Perlane (dermal fillers) thicker: Perlane is a thicker version of Restylane (dermal fillers) so lasts longer and gives more volume due to the larger particle size, therefore you get more "bulk" and lifting with perlane. These properties make Perlane more suited for deeper folds such as nasolabial folds and marrionette lines whereas Restylane (dermal fillers) is better for lips and tear trough where the skin is thinner. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
How long can I expect Restylane (dermal fillers) (expensive) to last when injected for nasolabial folds?
Whoa: Please forgive my frankness. Especially at your age, the key to a man looking good is intensive and joyful exercising, not plastic surgery except to correct a real birth defect. With your history, please consider whether you might have body dysmorphic disorder, and any plastic procedure will leave you dissatisfied. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Lip injections: It is very common to have quite a bit of swelling and soreness to the lips after an injection. This may even last for several days! using cold compresses (ice packs) frequently for the first 1-2 days will help quite a bit and keep your head elevated as well while you are lying down. If the swelling worsens or doesn't begin to improve call your provider for evaluation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can perlane (dermal fillers) correct an inverted nipple? I've had good results with perlane (dermal fillers) for my face, so i'm wondering if it would work on my nipples, too.
Variable: Depends on the degree of volume correction needed. On average i will use 1 syringe for the lips and no more than 2 if both upper and lower lips need a fair amount of volume. Remember, it's always easier to come back for another treatment than to deal with too much. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
What's in radiesse (dermal fillers)? I have very sensitive skin. I'm worried about having a reaction to something in radiesse (dermal fillers).
The : The 2 previous answers are right on. The main ingredient is the same compound that makes your teeth and bones so hard. It's impossible to be allergic to that part of radiesse, (dermal fillers) but it is possible, but extremely unlikely, to be allergic to the "carrier" component. Talk to your doctor about it before receiving the the injections. Check out their web-site for info. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
