Have you heard of the term lip flip? If you wish your lips were just a little bit fuller you might have come across this phrase while searching the various options to achieve your desired result. Let’s look at what a lip flip actually is and if it could work for you.
How Does It Work?
A lip flip is an alternative to the more costly lip fillers that you could use to plump your lips. Instead of dermal fillers, Botox is injected at key points along the lip line. This relaxes the muscles and allows more of the lip to be visible. It takes a small amount of Botox to produce the results you are looking for. Also, the finished product tends to look more natural.
Benefits of the Lip Flip
There are many benefits to the lip flip. First and foremost is the confidence boost that comes along with looking how you want to look. If you have always wanted a fuller, poutier smile then this could do wonders for you. If you are looking for a less gummy smile, this is also a great solution. The lip muscles that are relaxed typically cause more of the lip and less of the gums to be visible.
Another benefit is cost-effectiveness. Because Botox is considerably less expensive than dermal fillers, this procedure won’t break the bank. Not only is Botox less expensive but a lip flip takes a relatively small amount of Botox. You can use that money you save for another procedure you’ve always wanted, such as Latisse or Kybella.
There is no downtime with a lip flip. Come in on your lunch break and go right back to work. You may have a little irritation at the injection site but nothing that will keep you from doing your normal activities. As with other Botox procedures, it can take a few days for your final results to be visible.
Cons of the Lip Flip
For those wanting a more dramatic effect, the lip flip may not be drastic enough for you. If your lips are naturally very thin dermal fillers may be required to give you the fullness you are looking for.
Because this is a Botox treatment, results are not permanent. If you love your new smile, and we think you will, you will have to maintain it with regular visits to the clinic every few months. Don’t worry. This will help you accumulate ALLE points that you can use for discounts on future purchases.
As with any procedure, there is a very low risk of complications such as soreness at the injection site, bruising, or an uneven appearance though this is very rare.
