There’s a new lip beauty trend on the block called ‘Lip Flip’ and it uses Botox to achieve a poutier look.
It’s a non-surgical procedure that is designed to add fullness to the upper and lower lip by simply relaxing the mouth muscles and rolling or flipping the upper lip – giving the impression of a fuller mouth.
The key difference to using Botox instead of a lip filler is that the substance is not injected into the lips themselves, but instead in the surrounding areas.
For our Botox Lip Flip, a very small amount of Botox is strategically injected into sections at the sides of the lip to relax the superficial layers of the muscle just enough to flip the lip outward without affecting the function of the muscle.
The injections are virtually pain free and require no downtime as the procedure requires no cuts, incisions or stitches. Many of our patients describe the sensation as a very small scratch from a tiny needle.
Results from the treatment usually last between three to six months in total.
We believe that keeping your facial muscles active after the procedure will help the treatment to take effect but try to avoid any unnecessary touching of your face during the 24-hour period directly after your treatment to avoid infection.
We also suggest that you should not consume any alcohol or pain medication immediately after the anti-wrinkle procedure, and avoid air travel for 48 hours. We do not recommend undergoing any electrical rejuvenation treatments in the week following your Botox treatment.
