Wink Juvederm or Restylane?

Hey ladies, I'm having a hard time choosing between the 2. I've seen results from both that look awesome, but I'm SO confused as to which I should choose and how much I should have injected.

Can I get some input from the girls who've had either? and possibly the cost?

Thanks in advance!!!!

Hey girl! I've had both and absolutely LOVE Juvederm! It feels softer and has lasted longer for me. With resty, I was more aware I had a filler in my lips and it didn't last near as long.

The price is a little more expensive for JUP though. I paid $550 for an .8cc syringe of Juve while the Restylane was only $500 for a 1cc syringe. HTH!

I have been getting Restylane Injections in my lips for the past 7 years and I LOVE them!! Make sure u go a little bigger then u want if u go with Restylane though because Restylane is a Hylaronic Acid based gel and changes due to your hydration levels...When I first wake up in the morning they are huge and gorgeous and after about 2 hours they seem to shrink quite a bit..they are definately the biggest after I sleep - I'm actually adding more this month becuz 1 vial did look great but I want that "fullness" 24-7 and not just when I wake up. LOL Keep in mind though Restylane is harder ( firmer ) then Juvaderm so from time to time u can feel little hard bumps that u have to break up with your fingers ( pinching them to break them up ). This is not noticable to anyone other then yourself tho as u can only feel it and not actually see it...I just love Restylane becuz I have had such great results and it naturally absorbs into your body so it is 100% safe for evryone...It lasts a good solid 8 months for me personally before I have to get more added...I paid $400 for 1cc and u r able to get in in .5 cc as well based on how much u want to add... HTH

Juvederm without a doubt!! Years ago I started out with collagen and it went away so fast. Juvederm lasts me more than a year. I've had restylane before Juvederm was introduced. Not only does it last a really long time, but it makes your lips look so soft and perfect! It costs more but it lasts longer.

I pay $350 a syringe for both juvi or resty. In my lips, nothing lasts past 2 months but in the tear trough, resty is a miracle! Took away the tired look a d going strong after 5 months

I have juvederm in my tear troughs and my lips - 1 full syringe in lips was $525. I had it done six months ago and I'm not in need of more yet. Just had my tear troughs done a couple of weeks ago and love the results but it's more subtle of a change. I just look rested.
