Jan 9, 2024 | Botox Lip Flip, Fillers, Juvederm



If you’ve wanted to give your lips a little extra glamor, you may have considered the much-lauded Botox lip flip. You may even have thought about using fillers for a plumper, plusher look. Both treatments have merits, but you may find it difficult to decide on one over the other.

Should you get a lip flip or lip fillers? That answer depends on what you hope to accomplish, and what you envision as your ultimate goal.

What is a Botox Lip Flip?

This cosmetic procedure allows for an enhancement of your lips without fillers or other, more invasive procedures. Your medspa technician will inject a small amount of Botox into your lips at the corner of your mouth, and also into the divot in the center of your upper lip. This will help relax the muscles there for a time, which causes your lip to flip upward. Your lips will have a fuller appearance.

What are Lip Fillers?

Lip fillers, such as the popular Juvederm Volbella XC, don’t rely on the appearance of fullness. It is injected into the lips to add true volume. It can also mitigate the appearance of vertical lip lines. The volume from this treatment can range from the subtle to the more dramatic, and the results are long-lasting.

Which Treatment is Right for Me?

Both treatments can offer an enhancement to your lips. You may prefer a lip flip if:

  • You want to try enhancing your lips without a long-term commitment.
  • You’re looking to subtly boost your naturally full lips.
  • Your lips already have a shape you love, but you want to amplify it.
  • You want a less invasive option.
  • You want to improve upon a gummy smile.

Lip fillers might be right for you if:

  • You want a long-lasting solution with a consistent look.
  • You want immediate results.
  • You want to add true volume to thinner or flatter lips.
  • You want a more dramatic change instead of a subtle enhancement.
  • You want to minimize vertical lines in your lips as well as add volume.
