A patient asked 7 months ago
Hi, I am looking to try lip fillers to improve volume. I have heard that some people experience an added benefit of hydration, too. Do you advise either Juvederm Volbella or Juvederm Ultra Plus to achieve this? I am not looking for anything drastic, a minor plumping and hydration if possible. I also understand it may take a couple different visits to achieve this as my mouth is on the smaller side. Also is there any risk that lip filler would make my lips more dry/chapped?

Which Filler for Lips?

 
Hi and thank you for your question. Both fillers can be used for lips, but Juvederm Volbella has been specifically developed for lips and it’s a newer generation filler, so it might be preferred. More important than the choice of filler is the skill and experience of your injector so please make sure to do lots of research into that as well. Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederms absorb water once injected so they provide some hydration effects inside, but as for the outside of the lips and skin, they have no effect there. However, as your lips become plumber, it is possible to experience some minor increased skin dryness (simply because the surface area of lips has increased) and hence you may want to ensure following your skincare routine. I hope it helps and good luck!
