Which Lip Filler is Best for Me?

Lip injections can significantly change the shape and size of your lips for months at a time. There are many choices of lip filler for Rancho Mirage and Palm Desert patients to choose from, each with a unique purposes—so patients may be confused by their options and unsure about whether they’re making the right decision for their lips. Our Cosmetic Surgery Institute team can assess your features and advise you on what to expect from the various fillers available. The most suitable option for you depends on your individual goals, anatomy, and the concerns you’re hoping to address. The following are some of the most popular lip enhancement treatments:

Juvederm® Ultra

All fillers in the Juvederm® line are soft gels containing hyaluronic acid, a moisture-bonding molecule that exists naturally in the skin and maintains hydration levels. Ultra, one of the thicker filler options, is a good choice if you want to increase the size of your lips (but not in a cartoonishly exaggerated way) to give them a much more supple, pouty fullness. Patients who have lost a significant amount of volume as they have aged can especially benefit from this filler.

Juvederm Volbella®

Tiny amounts of filler injected in strategic locations can make a big difference to the overall look of your lips. To smooth out fine lip lines, fill in small grooves, and redefine the borders of the lips, Volbella® is typically the preferred choice. This filler adds a small amount of volume to the lips—but not as much as Ultra—and its thin, light texture makes it great for precise, subtle work. Volbella® is usually injected into the superficial layers of skin. It also works on vertical expression lines above the mouth, often called smoker’s lines, which appear due to repeated lip pursing.

Restylane® Silk

Restylane® Silk is another colorless, hyaluronic acid-based filler gel used for lip augmentation and minimizing wrinkles. Because it contains small, smooth hyaluronic acid particles, it creates soft, natural-looking results and is typically used for fine lines on or around the lips, the edges of the lips, and downturned corners of the mouth.

Restyane® Kysse™

The latest filler in the Restylane® line, Kysse™ was designed with proprietary processes to be especially flexible while still allowing for a natural look. Injections can enhance both lip texture and color, with results lasting for up to a year.

I'm into 1 year after having my saline breast augmentation and I can't be happier. The results are exactly what I wanted; they look and feel super natural. The staffs are helpful in making you feel comfortable and answering any questions you may have. The doctor is very pleasant and informative. I would highly recommend him to any one of my friends and/or family!

The lady at the front was wonderful. They were able to break down all the post op instructions for my recovery time and did a really good job. So far everything looks really good and scarring was minimal to none.

I went to Dr. Mo over a year ago for a breast augmentation. I was absolutely blown away by him and his team. Their caring bedside manner made me feel so comfortable and so welcome. I am beyond happy with my choice and highly recommend Cosmetic Surgery Institute of Palm Desert to anyone looking to enhance themselves.
