What is a Botox Lip Flip?

Aug 4, 2021 | Skin Care


Are you looking for an alternative to lip fillers? A Botox lip flip may be just the option you have been looking for. It is a fast, in-office procedure that will give your upper lip a fuller appearance without fillers.

What Does a Botox Lip Flip Involve?

Typically, if you want fuller lips, you might opt for a lip filler or a surgical procedure. With a Botox lip flip, a small amount of Botox is injected in the middle of your upper lip – also called your “Cupid’s bow” – and in the corners of your mouth. The muscles around your lip relax temporarily from the injection. This causes your upper lip to flip upward, giving it a fuller appearance.

Because this type of lip flip is minimally-invasive, it does not require any downtime. It is common for your lip to be swollen after the injection and appear to look more enhanced than it will look after the swelling goes down. You can expect the effects of your Botox lip flip to last between 8 to 12 weeks.

Who Can a Lip Flip Help?

A Botox lip flip is ideal for someone that wants to subtly enhance the appearance of their upper lip. This procedure is perfect for those who want their lips to look fuller without using a dermal filler. It is also ideal for those who want their smile to look less gummy or who think their upper lip is not visible when they smile.
