Primary Outcome Measures:
  • GEIS (Global Esthetic Improvement Scale)subject [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
    To evaluate esthetic change of lips from baseline as judged by the subjects using GEIS

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • GEIS subject [ Time Frame: week 2, 4, 12, 26 and 36 ]
    To evaluate esthetic change of lips from baseline as judged by the subjects using GEIS

  • GEIS by treating investigator [ Time Frame: week 2, 4, 8, 12, 26 and 36 ]
    To evaluate esthetic change of lips from baseline as judged by the treating investigator using GEIS

  • GEIS by independent evaluator [ Time Frame: week 2, 4, 8, 12, 26 and 36 ]
    To evaluate esthetic change of lips from baseline as judged by independent evaluator using GEIS

  • MLFS (Medicis Lip Fullness Scale) [ Time Frame: week 0, 2, 4, 8, 12, 26 and 36 ]
    To evaluate the efficacy in terms of Medicis Lip Fullness Scale (MLFS) score by live assessment performed by the treating and the independent investigators in the Restylane Lip Volume group.

  • Subject satisfaction questionnaire [ Time Frame: 0, 2, 4, 8, 12, 26 and 36 ]
    To evaluate subjects satisfaction in terms of a subject satisfaction questionnaire

  • Injection satisfaction questionnaire [ Time Frame: week 0,2,12,36 ]
    To evaluate injection technique and ease of injection in terms of a treating investigator questionnaire

  • Subject diary [ Time Frame: 2 weeks after first treatment ]
    To evaluate the acute safety profile in terms of a 14-day subject diary after initial treatment

  • Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 0-36 weeks ]
    To evaluate long-term safety throughout the study period

Arms Assigned Interventions
Restylane LipVolume and Restylane Lip Refresh
Open label
Device: Restylane Lip Volume
Treatment of up to 1,5 ml product for upper and lower lip, respectively at week 0 and week 12.
Device: Restylane Lip Refresh
Treatment of up to 0,5 ml product for upper and lower lip, respectively at week 0 and week 12.

Detailed Description:
Restylane Lip Volume is intended to be used for lip enhancement and Restylane Lip Refresh is intended to restore hydrobalance and improve skin structure of the lips (referred to as lip rejuvenation in this protocol), respectively. The lidocaine content is designed to reduce the subject's pain during treatment. The objectives of this open, multicenter study are to evaluate efficacy and safety of the products for the studied indications and to collect information on injection techniques used.
