Restylane (dermal fillers) is an excellent dermal filler with a proven track record of success.
We use it commonly in the upper and lower lip areas.

Yes if you are going to have this done, remember it is considered off label for lips, a board certified plastic surgeon is highly recommended

In brief: HA fillers & Lips
There are different hyaluronic acid fillers including Restylane (dermal fillers) and juvederm.
They are excellent for lip enhancement. Make sure you see a facial plastic surgeon with experience as technique with injection is very important. Keeping the lips in balance can give you a great natural appearing enhancement.

In brief: Lip injections
There are many safe fillers for use in the lips and Restylane (dermal fillers) is one of them. Most hyaluronic acid fillers of moderate viscosity can be safely injected for lip augmentation.
The key is not only choosing the right filler, but the injection technique used.

Just to add, another advantage of using a hyaluronic acid (such as Restylane or Juvederm) is the reversible nature of these fillers. You can try it, and if you if you find it's not the look you were going for, it can be reversed with another small injection.

Not all fillers have FDA approval for use in the lips.
Speak to your surgeon prior to having injections.

In brief: See an expert
Hyaluronic acids such as Restylane (dermal fillers) or juvederm are the most natural appearing fillers used in the lip region.
If done well, it looks very natural and can really enhance your appearance and improve upon any flaws (ie: wrinkles, thin lips, lipstick lines). It also gives immediate gratification. But if done badly, it can look horrible and unnatural. Be sure to see an expert with a lot of experience.

In brief: Restylane (dermal fillers) for Lip
Most plastic surgeons and dermatologists prefer hyaluronic acid fillers for lip injection or augmentation.
Hyaluronic acid is a material already found within the skin and naturally enhances the lips. Restylane is among a variety of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, which provides soft and natural results. Office treatments are quick and require minimal local anesthesia.
