What Is a Lip Flip With BOTOX Cosmetic?
We’d all love to have a perfectly plump pout, but if genetics didn’t bless you with one, cosmetic injectables certainly can. While lip filler might be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of lip plumping treatments, lip flips are becoming increasingly popular. If you’re curious about this trending lip enhancement technique, read on or call 305-324-2110 to book a consultation at Florida Academic Dermatology Center.
What Is a Lip Flip?
A lip flip is a minimally invasive lip-enhancing treatment that uses BOTOX® Cosmetic or other neuromodulators to relax the upper lip muscle causing it to flip slightly. This creates a fuller but natural-looking appearance.
Is a Lip Flip or Lip Filler Better for Me?
Lip flips are a great lip filler alternative if you’re happy with the current volume of your lips or if you’re looking for more subtle results. A lip flip may also reduce vertical wrinkles (AKA “lipstick lines”) around the upper lip. Additionally, this treatment can minimize the appearance of a gummy smile.
Lip filler is likely a better fit if you want significantly more volume. It’s important to note that lip flips only affect the upper lip. While this can create the appearance of fuller lips overall, those who want to plump the bottom lip will benefit more from filler. These treatments can also be combined to achieve specific aesthetic goals.
How Long Does a Lip Flip Last?
Lip flip injections take just minutes to complete and require zero downtime. BOTOX Cosmetic for lips lasts about as long as it does anywhere else on the face, so you’ll typically enjoy your results for three to four months. Lip filler lasts longer than a lip flip, with most patients seeing results for six months to a year.
