Cost: Juvéderm costs an average of $600, while Restylane costs can range between $300 and $650 per injection. Costs aren't covered by insurance.
Restylane is more granular, while Juvéderm is smoother. For this reason, Juvéderm is often used to address finer lines and wrinkles in tighter areas of the face such as the smile lines. Restylane – which stays in place better when injected – may be more adept at adding volume to sunken areas of the face.
In general, some of the thinner Juvéderm products range from $600-$800 per syringe. Longer lasting Juvéderm products range from $900-1,000 per syringe category.
JUVÉDERM results can last between 1 – 2 years. Restylane is used to treat the same areas of the face as JUVÉDERM. However, it tends to work well to fill in folds or lines around the nose and cheeks, and the eyes. Restylane fillers typically last 6 – 18 months, depending on the target area.
Restylane itself tends to cost between $400 and $800 per syringe, which means it averages out at around the same price. Syringes might also cost less, especially as they can come in two different sizes. Of course, the actual cost can vary depending on many things.
Restylane products are known to be incredibly effective for treating lines such as nasolabial folds. These develop between the nose and the mouth and can sometimes be stubborn to treat. These fillers cost anywhere from $550 to $800 per syringe depending on the specific product that's being administered.

Answer: Juvederm for lips
IN our practice, the typical amount for upper and lower lips is 1-1.5 syringes. If the lip injection is part of a larger area of treatment around the mouth, then the amount is less in most cases.
Will Results Improve Over Time? Absolutely! This injectable gives you improved results over time, unlike many other similar treatments. The active ingredient in Restylane works with the natural regenerative properties of your body, extending the results you'll see after treatment over the course of several weeks.
One syringe of Juvederm is sometimes sufficient for mild nasolabial folds. For lip augmentation, one syringe will sculpt and enhance the lips. The change will be noticeable but subtle. Two syringes will give a more dramatic size increase and enhancement.
Answer: Lip fillers
You should give it at least two weeks for it all to settle. It should last a little longer since you got two syringes, but that varies depending on the type of filler and the person (some people metabolize the HA faster). Lip fillers last anywhere from 6 to 18 months! Good luck!
Depending on the injection site and amount of dermal filler, most HA fillers last from 6 – 12 months on average. Regardless of which dermal filler you use, two or three syringes are almost always recommended in order to achieve the most gorgeous outcomes.
Most commonly, just 1 syringe is used for augmenting the lips, regardless of the type of filler you use. Occasionally, we will build up to 2 or even 3 syringes in the lips for a patient, but this is usually an older patient who has lost some of the definition and structure in the lips, as well as volume.
Restylane® may last anywhere from six to eighteen months, depending on the formula and the area of the face. Fillers in more mobile areas like the lips have a thin, flexible texture and do not last as long as more dense fillers such as cheek and wrinkle fillers.
The three fillers that tend to last the longest are Restylane Lyft, Restylane Defyne, Restylane Refyne, Juvederm, Voluma, Radiesse, and Sculptra. Restylane Defyne is built for balance and used in the nasal labial folds and marionette lines.
If you stop getting Restylane, after a year, the wrinkles will come back but they may never be as bad as they were before you started treatment since all fillers also cause your body to make new collagen.
Botox can be expected to last anywhere from 3-4 months and Restylane for about 9-12 months. However, once these products wear off, your face will simply return to its normal state. In fact, evidence shows that some injectable fillers can stimulate collagen building.
Discontinuing the treatment will not make your wrinkles worse. When the effect wears off, the treated area will go back to its original appearance. With dermal fillers, most people think your skin will become wrinkly or saggy if you stop getting injections. This is not necessarily true.
Cons: Some of the common side effects following Juvederm administration include the likes of bruising, pain, and swelling. In terms of cost, it's an expensive procedure.
A full syringe of filler is typically 1mL, so a half syringe would be 0.5mL.
Answer: Restylane for Lip Augmentation
Typically 1 syringe is all that is needed to achieve a patient's desired look. If you are looking for a larger look than you may require 2 syringes. I do not like to inject more than 1 syringe at time as to not over inject.
Juvederm is usually an elective cosmetic procedure which means that the patient will not receive insurance coverage for this treatment.
Still, there is generally no need to receive multiple treatments within a year. To achieve and maintain your ideal results, it is recommended to schedule treatments for every one to two years.
