Manhattan Aesthetics

What’s the Best Injectable for Lip Volume?

Lips are one of the most expressive features of the face. They showcase our emotions, so when lips are too thin, they don’t reflect how we feel inside. Genetics or age, whatever the cause, Manhattan Aesthetics has a dermal filler to perfect your pout, and the artistry to do so in either subtle or dramatic fashion.

The Beauty of Dermal Fillers

Most injectable fillers for lip volumizing are made of hyaluronic acid (HA) molecules. HA is a sugar the body uses to provide nutrients, retain moisture, speed wound healing, and keep skin hydrated and supple. This amazing molecule comes in many shapes and sizes, and in the hands of the brilliant scientists who’ve created dermal fillers, HA has become the cornerstone of facial rejuvenation treatments today.

It’s all in the way the molecules are linked together. To create plump thin lips, Manhattan Aesthetics uses three options, Restylane®JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC, and JUVÉDERM ULTRA® XC. While all three seem similar, they each have differences in how they’re created, providing patients and practitioners options for treatment.


Restylane® stands out as a lip enhancement option thanks to smaller HA molecules and how they’re linked. The more links there, the firmer the support the gel provides. The fewer the links, the thinner and more pliable the gel becomes, giving it more stretch. So whether you’re interested in a subtle boost to your lips or something more dramatic, Restylane® has a formula to suit your needs.

JUVÉDERM fillers are manufactured by Allergan, and have become the #1 dermal filler line in the industry. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is thinner than the other JUVÉDERM gels, with the smallest HA molecules and a unique cross-linking pattern for a filler ideal for subtly increasing lip volume and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth.

JUVÉDERM ULTRA® XC is a little more robust, with its own pattern of HA molecule sizes and proprietary number of crosslinks. ULTRA® is for the more dramatic lip volume seeker, who won’t be satisfied with anything less than the perfect pout.

How Fast and Long Lasting Are the Results?

Unlike other facial rejuvenation procedures, dermal fillers show results immediately. Proper injections require artistry, and immediate visibility helps us sculpt your new volume for natural and beautiful results. At Manhattan Aesthetics, each treatment is tailored to be as unique as the patient. We’ll plan your treatment around your facial structure and symmetry, your expressions, and your expectations, so your dermal filler injections will give you results to smile about.

The dermal filler that’s right for you may have different longevity than others. Restylane® patients experience optimal, lasting results upwards of 6-9 months, while JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC and JUVÉDERM ULTRA® XC results may continue for up to 1 year.

Artists have many mediums, and at Manhattan Aesthetics, we are facial sculptors, and we’re good at it. Allergan has designated us among the best in the industry. Our highly trained and respected team has received the 2018 Black Diamond designation, which officially places us in the top 1% of elite providers nationwide for Allergan injection treatments. You will find no one better in New York City to enhance your lips than Manhattan Aesthetics.
