What is Lip Augmentation?
Lip augmentation is an injectable procedure that improves lip size, shape, and contours with dermal fillers.
Patients often seek lip augmentation in Arlington to achieve soft, full lips with added definition and volume.
What Can Patients Expect from Lip Augmentation in Arlington?
Lip augmentation is performed in an office setting and takes approximately 30 minutes.
Prior to the procedure, the treatment area may be numbed with a topical or local anesthetic.
Then, an ultra-thin needle is used to administer lip filler as a series of precisely-placed injections. The injector may manually shape the product throughout the process to ensure smooth application and desired effects.
Post-treatment, patients may also experience minor and temporary bruising and swelling, which should dissipate within a few days. Otherwise, they are free to go about their day as they normally would, without any restrictions.
Lip augmentation results are immediate and will continue to improve as residual swelling subsides.
Which Fillers Can Be Used for Lip Augmentation?
They are both comprised of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that’s naturally produced by the body and, therefore, doesn’t require allergy testing.
Hyaluronic acid is also extremely hydrophilic and can hold up to 1000 its weight in water.

How Long Do Results Last?
Following lip augmentation in Arlington, patients can enjoy added volume and definition for six-to-12 months, depending on the product used.
