It depends on the goal of the treatment. Historically (i.e., before fillers were invented), some women would use carefully placed needle sticks (acupuncture) to make the lips swell temporarily. The effect is short lived and somewhat unpredictable. As a replacement for filler injections, this is likely to be underwhelming. Best of luck moving forward!
