How does Juvederm compare to Restylane for lip augmentation?
Juvederm has a slightly higher concentration of hyaluronic acid than Restylane. It therefore tends to draw more water into the lip and produces a slightly softer result. We prefer Juvederm in the lips for this reason. Contrary to that, we prefer Restylane around the eyes. Since these injections tend to be deep, we prefer the more firm feel of Restylane. Juvederm more often causes excessive swelling around the eyes as well.
