If you are envious of women with full, plump lips but you are anxious about using dermal fillers, a lip flip can help you achieve a sexier, more feminine smile. Performed using BOTOX, a lip flip restores the appearance of the upper lip, improving the sultriness of the facial expression without downtime or discomfort.
What is a lip flip with BOTOX?
Lip flip upturns your lip enhancing the peaks of your vermillion border. If you are interested in filler but are not ready to commit, a Lip flip is a wonderful option and good starting point. And it's perfect for enhancing your profile or anyone interested in enhancing lips
Lip flip is done by injecting the muscle above the top lip with Botox. What this does is relaxes your upper lip, which causes it to “flip”out so it shows more pink color, appearing slightly larger. It is a very subtle change and does not actually add any volume to the lip. This treatment takes two weeks to see full results and typically lasts about 4-6 weeks. It is usually recommended for patients who are thinking about adding filler, but are not quite ready.
Who is a candidate for a BOTOX lip flip?
- Someone who’s seeking to increase the appearance of their upper lip.
- Those who would like to reduce a gummy smile will also love the treatment.
- Someone looking to enhance their profile.
- Patients that are thinking about Lip Filler.
What is the difference between lip fillers and a lip flip?
Lip filler is done by injecting filler into the lips themselves. In our practice, this is done by using a Hyaluraonic acid filler such as Juvederm or Restylne products, which typically last 6-12 months. You will see results right away, although typically filler settles fully in 2-4 weeks. It will add volume to both the top and bottom lips, which can help define and shape the lips, add hydratation, and improve asymetries. Other characteristis include:
- It makes the lips fuller, adds volume and plumps them
- Hyaluronic acid filler injected directly into the lips
- Your injector has the ability to create a desirable shape to your lips
- You will see the difference immediately after treatment
- lasts 6+ months
