Thanks to their smooth application, Juvederm and Restylane are two of the most popular dermal fillers in the world. This is especially true when it comes to lip enhancement.

So, how do patients decide which lip filler is right for their unique needs and goals?

To help you make a well-informed selection, continue reading to learn some of the key differences between Juvederm and Restylane for lips.

What Are the Differences Between Juvéderm and Restylane for Lips?


While Juvederm and Restylane are both hyaluronic acid lip fillers, their products are made in different facilities and have slightly different formulations.

Restylane for Lips

Restylane is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that can add volume and enhance lip size, shape, and symmetry.

Restylane Silk was the first FDA-approved lip filler and has the ability to create silkier, smoother, natural-looking lips. It is also designed to smooth hard-to-treat wrinkles around the mouth – often referred to as smoker’s lines.

Restylane Kysse is the newest lip filler to hit the market and used to add volume to the lip body and define lip borders. It is also said to cause less swelling and provide more natural results and movement than other injectables.

Juvederm for Lips

Juvederm Ultra XC is a great option for patients who want a voluminous and pillowy pout.

Juvederm Volbella XC is designed to add slight volume to lips and correct vertical lip lines.


When looking at the differences between Juvederm and Restylane, it’s important to note they are both performed in an office setting and usually take 15-60 minutes, without any downtime.

In the hands of a highly skilled injector like Dr. Yousefi, patients typically find the procedure for Restylane and Juvederm lip fillers to be quick, easy, and virtually painless.


Restylane Silk results usually become evident in a few days and can last up to 10 months.

Restylane Kysse is one of the longest-lasting lip filler options, and some patients can enjoy results for up to 12 months.

Juvederm Ultra XC and Juvederm Volbella XC can last 6-12 months.
