From celebrities to red carpet actresses, a feminine pout and sexy smile are the top aesthetic attributes that many clients seek when coming to a medspa for the first time. With so many new, innovative treatments on the market today, patients can look and feel their best without having to resort to surgery.
A lip flip is a simple, non-invasive procedure to relax the upper lip to appear fuller and more youthful. Using BOTOX injections, a lip flip treatment accomplishes your cosmetic goals without discomfort or downtime. Results typically last 2-4 months.
What is a lip flip?
BOTOX injections are used during a lip flip to relax the orbicularis oris muscle in the upper lip, causing it to get pulled slightly upwards. This creates a flirtatious pout that many find irresistibly alluring. This treatment makes use of lip volume that was merely hidden rather than adding artificial plumpness to the lip contours. While you will see changes right away in your appearance, your full outcome will be visible by the end of the first week.
What is the difference between a BOTOX lip flip and dermal filler treatment?
BOTOX and dermal fillers work differently, but they can be combined to effect a comprehensive transformation in the appearance of your lips and mouth. The mechanism in BOTOX that makes it useful cosmetically is its ability to temporarily disable certain muscles, which triggers a change in the skin’s appearance.
A lip flip with BOTOX is a procedure that only affects the upper lip, relaxing it so more volume shows. BOTOX can also combat a gummy smile.
Dermal fillers are often made with hyaluronic acid, a compound found naturally in youthful skin. Dermal fillers can be used to add volume to the lips, smooth lip lines, and reduce creases around the mouth. Results are typically longer-lasting than those with BOTOX.
What are the benefits?
The lip flip procedure has an above-average rate of satisfaction among patients. For those looking to enhance their upper lips for a fuller, plumper, and more youthful appearance, BOTOX injections may be the ideal solution. A thin upper lip, or one that disappears when you smile, may be due to aging or hereditary traits. Regardless of the reason, a lip flip can help you feel more confident and give you something to smile about. Patients pursuing treatment should be of sound mind and body, and they should have realistic expectations based on detailed consultation with Dr. Kaado and his team.
Who is a good candidate?
You’re a great candidate for a lip flip if…
- Your upper lip disappears when you smile
- You want to correct a gummy smile
- You want fuller, more youthful lips
- You are comfortable with a temporary improvement
- You don’t want to use lip fillers to enhance your smile
What happens after my treatment?
After your BOTOX lip flip, you’ll be able to go home right away and get back to your day. Minor swelling, bruising, and tenderness are common side effects, but these only last a few days at most. Within about 48-72 hours, you’ll begin seeing a fuller lip profile, with results continuing to improve over the next 7 days. Changes last around 2-4 months.
