Is a Lip Flip done with Botox®?

People are asking: is a lip flip done with Botox®? Yes and no. Read on to learn more about this crowd-pleasing treatment option.We can all agree that full, attractive lips never go out of style. And there seems to be no shortage of people in West Bloomfield and the Greater Detroit area (in recent years especially) electing cosmetic treatment to enhance their lips. For those in search of perfectly pouty lips, fillers are generally the go-to treatment option for full, luscious lips. But there are other options for those who wish for more subtle lip transformations. 

The lip flip is a minimally invasive treatment available at Pristine Rejuvenation that uses neurotoxin to effectively provide the illusion of lip enhancement and an ensuing confidence boost.

Is a lip flip done with Botox only?

The lip flip is an in-office treatment in which neurotoxins, such as Botox, are injected in a few strategic places just above the upper lip and around the corners of the mouth. But it can also be carried out with other popular neurotoxins, like Xeomin® and Dysport®. Whichever neurotoxin is used, the injections work to temporarily relax the lip muscles, causing your upper lip to slightly “flip” upward and outward. This gives you a fuller appearance with a procedure that only takes about 10 to 20 minutes to administer.

How does a lip flip done with Botox or other neurotoxin compare to actual lip fillers?

A lip flip done with Botox or other neurotoxin can effectively amplify the natural contour of your lips without overdoing it for a more natural-looking shape. While the lip flip can help make your lips look fuller, it doesn’t necessarily add volume like dermal fillers do. Your upper lip just essentially gets readjusted to produce the desired effect. Since lip flip results don’t last quite as long as lip fillers do, it can be a great alternative for someone who wants more subtle changes to be ready for an upcoming social event without the slightly longer commitment attached to filler injections. 

With that in mind, the lip flip can serve as a sort of “trial run” for people who wish to see if the longer lasting effects of dermal fillers may be a possibility for treatment later. Also, the lip flip is less expensive than filler procedures. Prices vary depending on your individual needs, however. We’ll go over all those details during your consultation at Pristine Rejuvenation. 

Is a Lip Flip done with Botox? Am I a Candidate?

Lip flip treatment can be a great option for healthy adults who are self-conscious about the thinness of their upper lip, especially when they smile. Also, people who want their smile to be less gummy are generally good candidates for a lip flip as well. It’s also a great choice for those who want a refreshed look for an upcoming special event that’s a bit more subtle and temporary (lip fillers can last 6 to 12 months, while a lip flip typically lasts for approximately 8 to 12 weeks).

What kind of results can I expect with a lip flip?

Many patients notice improvement in their upper lip in just a few days following their procedure. Full effects typically show up in approximately 10 to 14 days. Since only a small amount of neurotoxin is used for the lip flip, results generally start to fade in 2 to 3 months, at which time you can elect an additional treatment to maintain your results as long as you choose.
