Lip flips are non-surgical cosmetic procedures that can help you achieve a fuller upper lip without the use of dermal fillers. It takes 10 to 20 minutes in the doctor's office and involves injecting small amounts of Botox into the cupid brow, the middle of the upper lip, and the corners of the mouth.
The injections temporarily relax the facial muscles around the lip, causing the inside of the lip to flip outward, giving the lip a plumper appearance.
Is a lip flip something I should try?
Those who can benefit from this procedure include:
● Those who want to get fuller lips without using dermal filler
● People who have thin lips that almost don't show when they smile
● Those who want to minimize the appearance of a gummy smile
How long does the procedure's effect last?
This procedure has a 2- to 3-month duration. Lip fillers may be a better option for you if you want a treatment that lasts longer.
What is the distinction between a lip flip and a lip filler?
Although the outcomes of these two procedures appear to be the same, they differ in how they work and how long they last.
Lip flips make the lips appear fuller, whereas lip fillers actually make them plumper.
Lip filler involves the specialist injecting hyaluronic acid into the lips to add volume and give them a hydrated appearance. Lip flips, on the other hand, use Botox around the upper lip to cause it to turn upward, giving it a fuller appearance without increasing volume.
How is the lip flip performed?
For 3 to 4 days before the procedure, you should abstain from alcohol and blood thinners such as aspirin.
The doctor will inject Botox into the center and corners of your upper lip during the procedure. The procedure takes about 10 minutes without anesthesia, and you can resume your normal activities immediately afterward.
You will notice an improvement within a few days of the procedure, and it will continue for several days after that. About two weeks after the procedure, the full effect of the lip flip will be apparent.
