Botox lip flips are a quick, painless non-surgical cosmetic procedure in which a medical professional injects a small amount of Botox into your upper lip to make it appear fuller.
Lip flips are a quick cosmetic procedure performed in a clinic that takes about 10 to 20 minutes. Botox is injected into your Cupid’s bow, which is the middle of your upper lip, and the corners of your mouth.
The injection relaxes the muscles around your lip for a short time. This causes the inside of your upper lip to “flip” upward and outward, giving your lip a fuller appearance.
We would need you to come in for a consultation with one of our experienced medical practitioners to determine whether a lip flip is right for you.
Who Should Get The Procedure?
People who are:
– are hoping to achieve fuller lips without dermal filler
– think their upper lip “disappears” when they smile
– want their smile to appear less gummy which is when your smile shows more of your gums than you’d like
Generally, the effects of the procedure last for 8 to 12 weeks. If you’re looking for a more permanent option lip filler might be a more suitable option for you.
What is the distinction between a lip augmentation and a dermal filler?
Lip flips and dermal fillers both give the appearance of fuller lips. However, the procedures differ.
Lip flips only appear to plump the lips, whereas dermal filler actually makes the lips fuller. Lip filler is a procedure in which a medical professional injects a substance primarily composed of hyaluronic acid into your lips. Hyaluronic acid contributes to the structure and hydration of your skin.
Lip flips, on the other hand, use Botox to relax the muscles around your upper lip, causing it to turn upward. This makes your lips appear fuller, but their volume does not increase; it is simply rearranged.
Dermal fillers may be a better option if you want to truly change the shape and volume of your lips.
Botox Lip Flip
Lip flips are nonsurgical cosmetic procedures that can help people achieve a fuller upper lip without the use of dermal fillers. Botox injections into your upper lip relax the muscles and cause your lip to “flip” upward. Because it uses fewer Botox units, it is less expensive than dermal fillers.
One or two units of Botox are needed to fix a gummy smile. Botox is injected in the area between your upper lip and nose to temporarily freeze the muscles that contract or elevate when you smile which allows you to smile without showing your gums.
