What is a Lip Flip? Learn more about the latest lip trend available at Utah Facial Plastics
- Posted on: Feb 6 2019
Lip fillers are at the top of the lip enhancement trends these days. But what if we told you that you there are other options? Lip Blushing is available to enhance the borders of the lip and add color. There’s also a surgical option to add fat injections to the lips for more of a permanent results. The latest non-surgical lip enhancement procedure to hit the market is the Botox lip flip.
Lip Fillers like Juvederm, Volbella and Restylane can add volume to the lips and define the border. Botox is now being used in a small amount above the line of the upper lip. This relaxes the “orbicularis oris” muscle causing a subtle lip line flip by gently rolling the upper lip outward to create the appearance of a fuller, kissable pout. This can be used alone or in combination with lip fillers. Keep in mind though that fillers and botox are not the same and cause a different effect.
Although a small amount of Botox is administered, Botox above the upper lip can weaken the movement of your mouth. This is why you would want to visit a board certified facial plastic surgeons office to make sure injections are properly administered.
The Botox lip flip usually requires 2-6 units, and the less that is administered the shorter amount of time it will last. This can be a great alternative for someone who wants to try a lip enhancement treatment and start off simple. It is also great for those who are on a budget with an average total of $44.
