Lip Flip With Botox | Enhance Your Lips Without Surgery

A lip flip is a new, popular way to achieve a full upper lip without surgery. Unlike most lip injections that use dermal fillers, a lip flip uses a small amount of Botox. Read on to learn more about this innovative procedure and discover if the Botox lip flip is right for your aesthetic lip goals.

How Does A Lip Flip Work?

A lip flip treatment involves injecting a small amount of Botox into the middle of the upper lip (Cupid’s bow.) In addition, the Botox formula is also injected into the corners of the mouth (orbicularis oris), a circular muscle that acts like a purse string.

Botox is a popular neuromodulator. It temporarily relaxes muscles. When used for lip augmentation, Botox relaxes the muscles around the lips, causing the upper lip to unfurl upward and outward. This results in a fuller-looking upper lip.

Lip Flip Results

Results are seen in a few days following the treatment. The full effects of the enhancement are noticeable within 7 to 10 days. Botox injection results last for 3 to 4 months. As with all cosmetic procedures, experiences will vary per person.* However, when you select a reputable professional like Haus of Aesthetics, you are sure to receive exceptional lip augmentation results you can trust and enjoy.

Risks And Side Effects

Flipping the upper lip with Botox is a safe, non-surgical way to enhance your lips. Adverse events are rare. You may experience mild side effects like bruising or swelling near the injection sites following treatments. These effects are temporary and go away on their own within a few days. The best way to avoid risks and side effects are to select the best provider in your area. People interested in a lip flip using Botox living in the Salt Lake City, Utah, area should select Haus of Aesthetics for their Botox injections.

Botox vs. Dermal Fillers For Lip Enhancements

Dermal fillers, like Juvéderm or Restylane, are often selected for lip injections. As their name suggests, fillers add volume to the lips. They are often used to plump up areas on the face including the lips and cheeks. In comparison, Botox does not add volume to the lips. Instead, it relaxes the muscles near the lip causing them to flip upward, making it appear full.

Botox lip injections are ideal for people who:

  •  Want fuller lips without using dermal fillers
  •  Want a more subtle, natural-looking augmentation
  •  Want their smile to look less “gummy”
  •  Want more of a pout without additional volume
  •  Have upper lips that disappear when they smile
  •  Want a more temporary solution than dermal fillers (3 to 4 months)
  •  What a less expensive alternative to dermal fillers

Lip injections using dermal fillers appeal more to people who:

  •  Want a more dramatic augmentation
  •  Want longer-lasting results (6 to 12 months)
  •  Want to augment lip shape and symmetry
  •  Want to add volume to both the upper and lower lip
