Definitely: Dermal fillers like juvederm and Restylane (dermal fillers) work by restoring volume to the skin or fat beneath the skin that has been lost because of aging or repetitive motion.

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
Different drugs: Botox is what we call a neurotoxin. It's a purified protein that blocks the transmission of a signal from the nerve ending to the muscle.

Dermal fillers: Df all last about the same time. The minimal differences are just for marketing purposes. The truth is that fillers are a good way to assess how you feel with the volume restoration. You can continue with fillers once they wear off or, if you like the result, you can get fat injections that are more longer lasting. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Filler Duration: In my experience, hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane (dermal fillers) and Perlane last about 9 months up to and just over 12 months when used for cheek augmentation. Perlane should last somewhat longer than Restylane (dermal fillers) due to it's more heavily crosslinked ha design. ...Read moreSee 6 more doctor answers

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.
