Juvederm vs Restylane - any preferences?

Hi Ladies,

I have had both Juv and Rest in my lips and preferred the feel of Juvederm (seems softer), but it seems not to last as long. Anyone have an opinion on this?

Also, under eye injections. I'm reading that Rest is the preferred choice. Any experience with that too?

Hope everyone has a wonderful new year!!!

I've had both in lips and can't tell much of a difference, i had restyle done most recently but felt it only lasted 4-5 months. have heard restyle is the best for under eyes, don't do juvaderm as it attracts too much water and can make you look too puffy.

How many syringes do you do? I do one top and one bottom. Supposedly the more you do it the longer it lasts?

I've done Juvederm XC, and it only lasted about 4 months as well. I think it really depends on your body and how fast it's "absorbed". Haven't tried Restylane yet. Doing more Voluma after BA though

I did Voluma last Feb also. I just did one syringe in each cheek. I'm thinking about another one split along with doing JXC in my lips .

I know!! I wish we lived close so we could go together. I would love to have a friend that I "shared" this with.

Perlane in the lips or cheeks? Is it as soft as JXC? Last the same amount of time?
Thanks!

Ive had both. I feel like each of them only last about 4 months. I get frustrated by this fact. The thing with me is I only get 1 syrings split evenly between top and bottom every time I go. I feel like I would rather go more often and keep them "touched up" versus such a massive lip when I get them. My PS recommends doing Juve and Rest every other time-apparently there are benefits to each of the products and they are good to mix. It seems to work just fine! I think Restylane hurts WAY more going in though!

I'm dipping my toe into the world of fillers on Thursday.

I've done Botox for years. I'm getting Voluma in my cheeks. I'm kind of nervous about it.
