Botox Lip Flip: Your Secret to a Perfect Smile
How great would it be to take a lunch break and run an errand that will give you fuller lips? It’s possible with a Lip Flip from Winston Salem Dermatology. If you have a top lip that you want to plump up, we can do it in no time with this quick, non-invasive procedure.
What is a Botox Lip Flip?
A Botox Lip Flip is a way to enhance your natural look by giving you fuller lips without the use of lip fillers. It’s one of the safest and most popular injections that’s used around the world today!
During a Lip Flip, Botox is injected into your Cupid’s bow, which is the middle part of your upper lip, and into the corners of your mouth. The Botox temporarily causes the muscles around your lip to relax, which causes that part of the lip to “flip” out. This will create the appearance of fuller lips.
The entire procedure only takes about ten minutes. The results are nearly instant, although it will take a few days to see your lips to their fullest.
Who Should Get a Lip Flip?
Do you want a dramatic new look with lips that are full of volume? If so, then a Lip Flip isn’t for you. This procedure doesn’t produce drastic changes, but instead, it gives a more natural appearance by rolling out your lip and making it look fuller. So, don’t expect it to add any volume like dermal fillers do.
However, this procedure is a great choice for many reasons. If your top lip is much thinner than your bottom, if it tends to disappear when you smile, or if you show a little more gum in your smile than you would like, then this could be a great procedure for you.
This is also a great option if you want to take baby steps towards using injectables. Fillers last almost a year, but Botox will just last about three months. Having a Lip Flip done is also less expensive than fillers are. So, if you want to get fuller lips without committing to the results and price of a filler, then this is a great option.
Is Lip Flip Better Than Filler?
While a Lip Flip and dermal filler will both make your lips fuller, they are different in many ways.
First of all, a Botox Lip Flip is not as expensive as a lip filler. A Lip Flip will cost about $80 to $500. However, a filler will cost between $600 to $1,000.
A Lip Flip also just makes your lips look fuller and natural, there isn’t any volume involved. Your lip is basically just rearranged to give it a fuller look. But with a derma filler, there is a substance that’s mostly made of hyaluronic acid that’s injected in your lip that will add volume to give your skin a new structure. So, the looks are more dramatic and noticeable with filler.
Another big difference between Botox Lip Fillers and Dermal Fillers is the amount of time that the results last. A Lip Filler lasts for about eight to 12 weeks, while a Dermal Lip Filler is a little more permanent and lasts for six months to a year or sometimes even longer. A Lip Flip is a more temporary option that you can try out without the bigger commitment.
What Happens During a Lip Flip Procedure?
The entire Lip Flip procedure will only take about ten minutes. There also isn’t any numbing involved because it’s actually a pretty painless procedure. Most clients say they feel a small sting in the injection site, but the pain quickly passes.
Your doctor will then inject the Botox into the center and corners of your upper lip.
And that’s it! The procedure really is that quick and easy. You can return to your normal activities right after your appointment.
After your injections, your upper lip may be slightly numb and look swollen. You may have some issues whistling, talking, or drinking, but that will go away in a few days as your body adjusts to the injections and your lip lifts.
Aftercare is pretty simple too. You’ll just want to make sure you avoid smoking after the procedure because it could increase the risk of infection. You’ll also want to make sure you rub or massage your lips to help spread the Botox around. And try to sleep on your back for a few days.
When Will I See Results from a Lip Flip?
After you have your Lip Flip done, you will start seeing results within a few days, and you’ll wake up every morning with different results. It will take about ten to 14 days for you to see the full effect of a Lip Flip before and after.
Your results will last about two to three months, but after that, you’ll have to have additional Botox injections to keep your lips looking great year-round.
What is the Cost of a Lip Flip?
Keep in mind while you’re thinking of getting a Lip Flip that it is considered a cosmetic skin treatment procedure, so insurance won’t pay for it. So you will need to be prepared to pay out of pocket.
But the good news, Botox is more affordable than dermal fillers. A Lip Flip usually costs between $80 and $500.
