Lip Injections in Fort Worth
Lip Injections or Lip Augmentation is one of the most requested cosmetic procedures available.  The use of Dermal Fillers can give you fuller, plumper lips or balance asymmetrical lips. There are many types of dermal fillers that can be injected in your lips and around your mouth, the most common fillers today are products that contain substances similar to hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body.

Luscious Lip Fillers Q & A

Hyaluronic acid fillers can improve the appearance of your lips by adding:

  • Shape

  • Structure

  • Volume

The effects typically last around six to twelve months. After that more injections are needed to keep the volume of your lips. There are several hyaluronic acid fillers on the market. Among them are these products:

  • Restylane, Restylane-L, Restylane Silk

  • Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Juvederm Volbella XC

  • Revanesse Versa

All of these products are injected the same way and give you similar results. And some contain lidocaine, a local anesthetic. Because hyaluronic acid fillers are made from substances similar to those found in the body, they are unlikely to cause an allergic reaction. But if you are allergic to lidocaine, tell your doctor before being treated.

What to Expect During the Procedure

Injectable lip augmentation techniques can be performed by one of Master Cosmetic Injectors in our office with little to no downtime. 

  • Before the injections, a topical or local numbing agent may be applied to ease discomfort. Holding ice to the lips before injections also helps to numb the area and potentially help with bruising and swelling.


  • After carefully examining the areas to be injected, very fine needles are used to inject the substance into your lips.


  • Following injection, ice may be given to ease discomfort and control swelling. But no firm pressure should be put on the treatment area.


  • Lipstick or other lip products are best avoided immediately after the procedure.


  • You should be able to notice a difference immediately. After you have healed, your lips should feel natural.

Side Effects and Risks

Side effects of hyaluronic acid fillers are temporary and should only last a few days. They may include:

  • Bleeding from the injection sites

  • Swelling and bruising

  • Redness and tenderness at the site of the injection

  • Reactivation of cold sores or fever blisters (herpes simplex) of the lips or area surrounding the lips

More serious yet extremely rare side effects or risks may include:

  • Severe and prolonged swelling or bruising lasting one week to 10 days

  • Lip asymmetry (parts of lips are different sizes)

  • Lumps and irregularities in the lips

  • Infection

  • Injection into a blood vessel, causing tissue loss

  • Ulceration, scarring, or stiffening of the lip

  • Allergic reaction causing redness, swelling, or itching around the lips
