All About The Lip Flip

Have you ever heard of a lip flip? This non-surgical procedure has gained a lot of attention in the past few years because of its effectiveness as an alternative to lip filler. For many people, it can make a big impact on their overall appearance in just a short injection session. So what exactly is it and how does it work? Let’s find out.

What Is A Lip Flip?

This procedure uses Botox to create the appearance of a fuller upper lip. We inject a small amount of Botox into upper lip (orbicularis oris) muscle, which causes it to relax. As a result, the lip “flips” upwards giving the illusion of more fullness, without the use of filler. You’ll start to see the effect appear within 2-3 days, with full results in around 10. While the change can be dramatic (especially to the owner of the lips!), this procedure offers a more subtle enhancement than most lip filler treatments. It works well for people who want a little boost without adding volume. Plus, it minimizes the appearance of a gummy smile.

How Long Does It Last?

Botox doesn’t last as long as filler, so typically the results will last 2 months. Injections in this area tend to wear off sooner than other parts of the face because this muscle is used often for eating, drinking, and talking.

Depending on your goals, you may or may not be a candidate for a lip flip. It can only be performed on the upper lip, so if you desire a full pout on the top and bottom, filler may be a better choice.
