Our Complete Guide To The Botox Lip Flip

Botox lip flips involve the use of non-invasive Botox injections above the upper lip and near the corners of the mouth. By relaxing the muscles that connect to the upper lip with a neuromodulator (Botox), the goal of this procedure is to allow the lip to relax and curl outward, creating a more defined shape. Creating a “flipped” appearance of the lip gives the appearance of fuller, more defined lips without actually adding volume.

Benefits of the Procedure

A Botox lip flip is a generally painless procedure in most patients. Unlike lip injections which are longer-lasting, a Botox lip flip is a good option for those who are new to lip treatments. The effects of a lip flip create a more naturally enhanced appearance, ideal for those who want to experiment with a new look without trying anything too drastic. This treatment can help you achieve a youthful look and:

  • Improve lip symmetry
  • Make the upper lip look more voluminous
  • Reduce the appearance of a gummy smile (prevent gums from showing when you smile)
  • Subtly define lips

The results of a lip flip procedure are not immediate. It usually takes about three to four days for patients to begin to see the benefits of the procedure. After two weeks, you will begin to see the final results of your lip flip.

Who is a Good Candidate?

A Botox Lip Flip is the perfect procedure for patients who wish to create a subtle change to the way their lips appear. Lip flips help enhance the appearance of thin lips, creating more definition to enhance your facial features. This procedure is also a great option to reduce the visible appearance of fine lines and wrinkles that occur around the top of the lips, such as in the cupid bow area.

Botox Lip Flip Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How does the Botox Lip Flip differ from traditional lip fillers?

Lip fillers utilize dermal injections that contain hyaluronic acid to add volume to the lips. This procedure involves the injection of fillers directly into the lips. On the other hand, a Botox Lip Flip enhances the appearance of your lips without adding volume directly. 

Creating a natural, subtle enhancement, a Botox lip flip can provide an enhancement to the shape of your lips. Your Ageless Remedies of Roswell provider can help you determine if lip fillers or a Botox lip flip is better for you, based on your individual cosmetic goals.

How long do the results of a Botox Lip Flip last?

Each patient responds differently to Botox injections, however, most patients benefit the effects of a Botox lip flip for up to six weeks. Once the results of the Botox begin to fade, we recommend returning for a touch-up appointment. During your visit, our aesthetician team will help you determine when to schedule your next appointment. 

Are there any potential side effects or considerations for the procedure?

Some patients may experience mild side effects immediately after the procedure, which include swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection site. Usually, these mild side effects resolve within one day following your appointment. 

Major side effects are rare, which include allergic reactions, dizziness, or bleeding. After your treatment, we will provide you with post-treatment care instructions to help you manage any potential discomfort. Injecting too much Botox or injections in the wrong area could also cause side effects. As such, it is important to use a trusted, experienced Botox provider like Ageless Remedies of Roswell to minimize potential side effects.
