Styles may change but full, youthful lips are always in. In fact, lip filler is one of our most popular appointments. From dramatic volume to a subtle plump, filler can do so much for your pout. Still, lip filler is not for everyone. Maybe you're worried about plunging into filler or are looking for a shorter-term, more subtle change. The lip flip might be perfect for you.
If you would like to enhance your lips but aren't sure fillers are your style, consider an advanced Botox technique called the "lip flip". This treatment has been around for a while but has gained in popularity recently. It's the perfect choice for many because it requires zero downtime and creates beautiful results.
What is the Botox Lip Flip?
As you may have guessed, the Botox Lip Flip uses Botox to flip out the lip thus revealing more of your lip and giving the illusion of a fuller pout. The treatment itself includes a few quick injections around the lips. The Botox will help the lips relax and roll out slightly. The results are subtle and beautiful. It really is a great option for those who want to enhance the shape of their lips with minimal effort.
How does it work?
To perform a Botox lip flip, our injectable specialists make a series of injections around the lip and into the orbicularis oris muscle. Botox temporarily relaxes the part of the muscle over the upper lip, causing the lip to roll slightly upward so it appears more voluminous and defined. Injecting into the orbicularis oris muscle can also help smooth vertical lines around the lips.
It can take 7-10 days to experience the full effect and will last between 3 and 4 months.
Can any injector do this?
It's important to choose a highly trained provider. The Botox Lip Flip is a delicate technique. It takes a high level of skill to achieve the right effect. All the aesthetic injectors at Vitality have been trained on advanced techniques and are qualified to perform this treatment.
Botox or Lip Filler? Can't decide which is right for you?
You likely will be happy with the Botox lip flip if:
You would like to make a subtle change to your pout.
You feel your lip disappears when you smile.
You want fuller-looking lips but do not want additional volume
You want a more temporary treatment (3-4 months)
Fillers are likely a better lip enhancement option if:
You would like additional volume in the upper and/or lower lip
You would like to address more severe vertical lip lines
You would like to improve overall lip shape and symmetry
You want a longer-lasting lip enhancement (6-12 months)
In some cases, your aesthetic injector may recommend combining Botox and fillers. This is typically done two weeks apart.
How much does it cost?
At Vitality, the Botox Lip Flip is $99. The treatment typically lasts 3-4 months but is dependent upon your body and how quickly it metabolizes the product.
