What is a Botox Lip Flip?
Botox lip flip is a non-abrasive cosmetic procedure that makes your upper lip look plumper or more prominent. This quick, non-surgical procedure involves injecting Botox into the upper lip and the corners of the mouth. After injection, the muscles around the mouth get relaxed and give the lips a curl that reveals the lip’s surface more.
How Is a Botox Lip Flip Different from Lip Fillers?
Botox Lip Flip is an alternative to lip fillers that enhance your upper lip. Lip flips are recommended mostly if you want a natural look. Lip fillers include the injecting of hyaluronic acid into the top lip to enhance its appearance and make it look plumper.
The main difference between both of them is:
- In Lip Flip, Botox is injected that enhances the upper lip and gives an upturn in the lip shape. This is cheaper and may last for eight to twelve weeks. It gives more of a natural look and has no downtime.
- In Lip fillers, Hyaluronic acid is injected that gives voluminous lips and also gives control on lip volume. This is more expensive but can become cheaper in the long run as it lasts up to one year. This also smooths out the lines around the mouth.
What Happens during a Lip Flip Procedure?
Before the procedure starts, the patient is requested to not have any alcohol or blood thinners to avoid swelling for 4 to 5 days.
During the procedure, Botox is injected into the center of your lips. It calms these superficial fibers of the muscle and enhances the volume in the lips. The procedure is not so painful and takes up to 10 – 20 minutes for the entire procedure to finish.
How Long do Results take?
You are not supposed to put any pressure on your lips for 4 to 5 days after getting a Lip Flip. Avoid kissing, applying make-up, sleeping with your face down, or doing any activity that can affect your fillers. The results will begin to show themselves in intervals. In several days, an improvement will be prominent. The full effect of Botox Lip Flip will be prominent in 10 to 14 days. Lip Flips are easy to get and last for 3 to 6 months.
Additional Botox injections for maintenance can be opted for once you feel that you are losing your volume from your lips. For longer effects, try Lip Fillers that can last up to one year.
To get the maximum results from this procedure, do proper research. Always consult an expert for this procedure.
